For a kitchen remodel, homeowners naturally want their space to be beautiful yet they have to design it for functionality too. The kitchen remains a functional space meant for cooking, food preparing, and eating. With the steps below, you can design your kitchen for optimum functionality to make tasks easier:
Create as Much Storage as Possible
First, focus on storage. You need all the storage you can get, and this relies on well-designed cabinetry. Trinity Builders of South West Florida suggests making use of vertical and corner spaces. Any other dead space can also be filled with custom-designed storage. Maximize your entire kitchen space and you’ll then have enough storage for your needs.
Plan Out Your Workflow
Next, you can incorporate the “kitchen work triangle” into your remodel design. The term refers to the connection of three points of contact — the stove, the refrigerator, and the sink — that cooks conceptually have. The better the connection between the three, the smoother your kitchen workflow. You can then talk with your kitchen remodeling professional about this to find the best kitchen layout possible.
Illuminate the Space
You can now think about lighting, which you’ll also need to work in the kitchen well, especially when you want to host dinner parties at home. You can make lighting hidden with under cabinet lighting for a more seamless kitchen look. As long as your countertops, stoves, and other work surfaces will be illuminated, your lighting will then be enough.
Cater to Your Needs
Finally, even with all of the suggestions above, you still have to cater kitchen functionality according to your needs. What do you need from your kitchen? Coffee-lovers may need a space dedicated to brewing. Cooks may need wide countertop space for food preparation. List down what you need and design your kitchen according to those needs, before you consider your wants.
Follow the steps above, and you can then optimize the functionality of your kitchen, without sacrificing any of its aesthetic beauty.
