Remodeling a kitchen takes a great deal of planning. You have to decide what you want to change, what can stay and what your budget is. The benefits of remodeling your kitchen are well worth once it is done. You get a beautiful kitchen set up just the way you want it and it is a great selling feature if you have plans on selling your home. There are many things to consider when remodeling a kitchen; such as do you prefer cabinets or drawers, would an island or breakfast bar, do you want Granite, Formica or Travertine countertops, do you need more storage, etc.?
Your kitchen has specific dimensions, and you cannot change these. The same is true of standard furniture units, such as floor and wall cabinets, pantry units and also islands containing storage and butcher's blocks. The trouble is that when homes are built the standard furniture dimensions are never taken into account, and once fitted, standard units are generally an inch or two long or short.
Plan where you will be putting your fridge, oven and other kitchen appliances. Creating a lively interior can be a challenge, but a detailed plan can help provide order. There is an imaginary triangle that you should use when remodeling your kitchen which experts call the kitchen work triangle. This is an imaginary straight line from the center of your sink to the center of your fridge and your cook top. The triangle should be planned using equal distances between each of the three appliances to promote efficiency.
Another great kitchen remodeling idea to make your kitchen appear larger is having a skylight installed in your kitchen. A skylight is a fantastic idea as it will give an open and airy feel to your kitchen. A professional can go over the details with you on the option of installing a skylight to your kitchen.
Using a Lazy Susan in Planning a Kitchen. If you have trouble using a corner in your kitchen to its best advantage, then you can have a lazy Susan designed to your specifications to use up all the corner space available with a rotating unit fitted neat to the back and side walls. Most Lazy Susans require 33 - 36 inches along each wall from the corner. You might not have this space available, so you would need a custom kitchen cabinet manufacturer to make one for you to meet your available dimensions. This would likely involve changing the way it operates for it also to conform to the regular depth of fitted kitchen furniture, although that is not a problem if you are planning a kitchen and know the right furniture manufacturers to approach. The lazy Susan is just an example, and there are many other examples of functional kitchen furniture planning that could be used.
Most kitchens, regardless of size, find room for a dishwasher, even if it is only a table-top size. Juicers, slow cookers, deep fat fryers and pressure cookers are the norm in most homes - as are food processors, coffee grinders and coffee machines of one sort or another. Breadmakers and microwaves are also common acquisitions. The problem arises in where to house these movable appliances and sufficient cupboard space needs to be given over to store these items. This has led to the majority of Western kitchens now being fully fitted with wall cupboards as well as base units, inevitably reducing the need for too many alterations in the way of kitchen decorating ideas - especially as the gap between the wall units and the base units are usually tiled. This leaves the opportunities for kitchen decorating ideas rather limited unless you are starting from scratch completely. However, for those of you who are putting together a brand new kitchen, you need to be extremely careful about choosing your kitchen decorating ideas as the outcome is likely to remain with you for many years to come.
