When you buy a new home, you might end up settling in some areas in order to meet your budget, live in your dream location, or to get that big backyard you’ve always dreamed of. If you had to settle on a kitchen you don’t love, then why not remodel and create the kitchen of your dreams. We have some tips for you when designing your dream kitchen.
What’s your budget?
Before you make any decisions about your kitchen, you should first know how much money you have to work with. With your budget in mind, you’ll know whether to look at high-end appliances or more affordable options. Make a plan at the beginning to help you stick to your budget.
Decide your style
Are you looking for a modern kitchen or a traditional one? Do you want it minimalist or full of character? It helps to look at examples of kitchens online or in showrooms to get ideas of what kind of style you want. Knowing this will help you make smaller decisions down the line, like what kind of edge you want on your countertop and what style you want for the handles on your cabinets.
Don’t forget functionality
It’s easy to get so caught up in the aesthetics of the room that you neglect functionality. You’d hate to invest in a new kitchen only to realize the sink is awkwardly placed or the refrigerator door doesn’t open all the way.
Hire an expert team
You want to be involved as much as you can in the design process, but you should still bring in professional advisors and designers to help you realize your dream. We can design your kitchen from start to finish, but we’ll involve you every step of the way to ensure that we know exactly what you want.
Create a floorplan
With both style and functionality in mind, you can now start thinking about the layout of your kitchen. Make sure you know what elements you want in the room and then start to plan where everything should go. Do you want it open plan, L-shaped, or U-shaped? Here are a few ideas for your kitchen layout.
