The Perfect Kitchen

The Perfect Kitchen

When it comes to remodeling your kitchen, the idea can be scary and overwhelming. There are so many different components that go into the use of your kitchen: the sink, the oven, seating, possible dining, pots and pans, storage, stovetops, the list could go on! And the options to customize every part of your newly-remodeled kitchen are endless, and always changing.

So how do you know where to begin?

Start by thinking first about what you do most in your kitchen. What are you doing every day in this kitchen? How do you work? What are your morning and evening routines like? Are you someone who likes to cook? Regardless of how you choose to use your kitchen, whether you enjoy nightly take-out or homemade dinners, you want it to be a space that is welcoming and comforting, while also punctual. 

Imagine yourself cooking your first meal, or entertaining others in the comfort of your home. When your home kitchen remodeling process is complete, what does the space feel like, look like, smell like, sound like? These are all things to consider and pay attention to when evaluating how you want you newly-remodeled kitchen to feel. 

There are several different components that go into creating and remodeling your “perfect kitchen”:

 

1. The Layout

If you are someone who spends most of your time in the kitchen cooking and creating new delicious treats for yourself or loved ones, you know the importance of the layout of the foundation. The layout preferences can be different and personal based on each individual needs. A popular setup that many people consider having is a “triangle connection” between the stove, sink, and fridge. These three parts of the kitchen should be in close proximity and easily accessible, as they are the three most used parts of the kitchen. However, more recently, this trend is not as popular. The biggest issue that clients focus on when designing their “dream kitchen”, is prep stations and work areas that are easily accessible and spacious. Prep stations can be personally customized and designed to meet each client’s expectation and vision. The placement of each work area does not necessarily have to match the “triangle connection” that many people assume. Our biggest concern when designing your kitchen is making it as enjoyable and spacious as possible for you.  Consider how your kitchen will flow into other rooms, specifically the dining room or family room. Again, you want your kitchen to feel welcoming and open to all who come into your home.

2. Lighting

A well-lit kitchen is important, as it allows you to perform all necessary tasks in the space, but also creates a mood to warm and brighten the room. Different types of lighting can easily change the kitchen from a cooking space, to a place of company and entertainment.

3. Storage

Often, when people want to remodel their kitchen, storage is one of the biggest reasons. You can never have enough room or extra space to store items in your kitchen! It’s important to take into consideration how you want your storage to look. There are a variety of different cabinet options, as well as drawers and customizable handles to go on each. This is one of the many ways that you can make your new kitchen look unique, as you are in charge of picking the styles of every detail that goes into your storage units. Have fun with it, and enjoy the process!
