The heartbeat of today's modern family.
A shared space with a large amount of storage space and various conveniences. Top-of-the-
The range appliances, cool tiles and spacious dining scale acres.
It's just not getting any better, is it? Yeah, dream on!
The reality is that the kitchen is often a secondary role in the living room, bathroom and bedroom (
In many houses we visited)
At least part of the reason is the fear that the update may take about 50 k.
However, in our world, even the most needed food preparation areas can be active with amazing little effort.
You just need to know how to prioritize. . . .
First think about how your dream kitchen needs to work.
The kitchen now is not just a simple place to make a delicious chicken shop, but a space for parties, chat, where social can be done.
It may also be a community center for local children, a homework station, or just a place to have a drink with friends while chatting about life and love.
Feel inspired? We hope so.
But be careful: Slow down!
Plan your own square feet before you start the purchase task.
Every square inch is crucial and should be requisitioned to the maximum.
You don't need a building degree to operate a pencil and a chart paper, so draw your floor plan and coefficient in utilities such as a stove, microwave and dishwasher.
Kitchen 101 carefully measure and pay attention to the location of existing services, doors and windows.
Build where you want to place appliances, countertops and cabinets.
Flag any changes to the service that may be required (
Electricity, water, drain)
Remember an exchange like this (in positioning)
The cost of completely rearranging the layout is lower.
Remember form and function.
It is very nice to create your dream kitchen, but unless there is enough space to store food, pottery, helicopters and other utensils, your plan will fail.
Avoid grouping appliances side by side, otherwise your kitchen will end up like an electrical showroom;
It is best to arrange a stove, refrigerator and freezer with cabinets between the two.
Alternatively, choose an integrated appliance, especially in a smaller kitchen.
For maximum efficiency, remember your work triangle: a clear and simple relationship between the sink, refrigerator, and stove.
Remember the logic of time-in-
Sports and your kitchen will work more efficiently. Opt for hard-
Use floors such as tiles, stones, or wood.
Invest as much as you can from the beginning and save you a lot of money in the long run. You buy cheap?
You might buy it twice.
Don't try to save cash by solving the appliance.
Unless you are trained and capable.
Again, please leave the pipe to the expert in order to avoid water in the basement.
Although a custom dream looks wonderful, the mathematics that comes with it is amazing.
Keep this in mind, remember that stores such as Ikea and Home Depot now have top-
Kitchen Cabinet series (and appliances)
Very affordable price.
We recently installed a small apartment kitchen using Ikea products for an amazing $4,000.
Kitchen style what kitchen layout do you have?
It is quite possible that it may belong to one of the four standard configurations: kitchen: a narrow room with doors at both ends.
There are usually two rows of cabinets and a sink under the window. L-
Shape: one of the most common plans.
Traditionally defined by long and short cabinet walls set at right angles, the most common ones are related to openingsconcept living. U-
Shape: this configuration works fine as all work areas are easily accessible.
Perfect for a small space or a location at the end of a larger room.
Island layout: this footprint works best in larger real estate.
Please note that affordable islands are those designed for storage, not those built to accommodate pipes, gas or electricity.
Once you have the utility installed, the cost will spiral up.
Don't feel compromised if the budget dictates the use of the look you already have, not the entire room;
We have many solutions.
Here's how, through some tweaks and around your recent big-
In order to achieve the maximum visual return of the minimum financial expenditure, the box store: replace the old cabinet door, but keep the existing cabinet.
Open the countertop.
It's amazing how different your kitchen will look.
Ikea's "butcher's block", for example, will look great on top of existing loose pieces.
Tip: Naughty By repainting (sorry knotty)
Cool cream door. Abracadabra!
A new look. . . for less.
Turn on the hardware.
Yes, change the knob or pull it, and even the most dull cabinets will be rejuvenated.
I guess it's like jewelry.
Change your back splash.
We love the ceramic tile collection of Lorna.
Especially their square silver metal option, which looks great compared to the traditional wood finish.
Add accent wall.
Paint is one of the cheapest ways to add drama, so choose one of the biggest colors of the season: Rich Green, sunny yellow, or, if you feel bold, red.
You can make a small accent wall. 5-litre tin.
Tip: Choose a satin finish;
This is easier to care in places where moisture levels are worrying.
We also feel comfortable installing traditional wood cabinets because the high gloss flat doors are very retro.
We like to add visual interest by combining different styles.
After all, there is nothing wrong with mixing and matching a little bit.
Why not consider the old world oak rocking bed base with eyes fusion
Finish the horizontal cabinet in the contrasting paint;
Or, in a chef's room, balance up with a period of high-gloss cabinets
Shabby Oak cream used to store dishes and precious table supplies?
Or, position the wooden harvest table as free
Islands floating in the ocean of stainless steel cabinets;
Dressed in thick ceramics, a bowl of fresh fruit, and a variety of cute accessories, the look will be active right away. Gorgeous!
Check out your food preparation area. Is it (
If you are honest)a little drab?
Is the lighting the problem?
If you want to cook under the hanging lights, it's definitely time to change.
Even a simple Rail light will make a big difference.
If you have the available depth of the pot lights, draw a neat line on the length of the kitchen and watch your space turn on and you will be amazed.
Don't forget ~
If you can see exactly what you're doing while cutting the dice, you're more likely to grab all your fingers.
This is always good news. . . .
Take it from us: no matter what you do to improve, it's a good time to love your kitchen as much as you 've never liked before.
Go to your nearest supplier and talk to trained staff;
After all, they are there to make your selection process easier. And remember;
Every dollar you spend will have a double benefit: you will enjoy the results in the short term, and your efforts will be rewarded if you finally decide to sell.
After all, most buyers like houses that don't need much work the most.
Who wants the kitchen sink? So come on!
Start creating a storm!
Start planning your dream kitchen!
You know that makes sense. . .
