Planning Your Kitchen Renovation?
Kitchens occupy an important place in any household. Not only are they vital for meeting a family’s nutritional needs but they are often the hub around which the family gathers every day. So if you are thinking of remodelling your kitchen, it would be wise to invest some time in thinking it all out beforehand, irrespective of whether you are using a contractor or doing it yourself.
The main functions that are carried out in a kitchen are food preparation, food storage and clean up. So your remodelling plans must first concentrate on ensuring that you can carry out these tasks easily.
The basis of a good kitchen design is the classic work triangle where the fridge, sink and stove are placed in a triangular pattern. These areas are used the most in any kitchen and you should be able to move easily from one to another.
If your home sometimes has more than one person working in the kitchen, it is a good idea to have several work centres. You can increase the existing space by incorporating islands, chopping blocks or counters.
A wide variety of flooring is available for kitchens. When choosing, keep in mind your space and budget considerations as well as the wear and tear factor.
And finally, optimise the space by using built in appliances and convenience-enhancing machines like dishwashers and garbage disposals.
