You want your kitchen remodel to be a dream, not a nightmare. Imagine how much easier it will be to work in a kitchen designed perfectly. It is much more enjoyable. It makes meals come together quickly and everything has its place, from utensils and dinnerware to food staples and pantry staples.
You should plan your kitchen remodel carefully. This will ensure that you don’t make the same mistakes as others in similar situations.
Five Kitchen Design Mistakes You Must Avoid
1. Too Much Stainless Steel
It is a great idea to have all of your large appliances match stainless steel finishes. Every little detail can be purchased in stainless steel – such as a microwave, coffee maker, and toaster.
2. Too Few Electrical Outlets
This is an important detail that is often overlooked when redesigning a kitchen. Consider how many appliances and gadgets you have in your kitchen that require electricity to function. You might also need to charge your phone, tablet or plug in a vacuum cleaner or floor sweeper. This is a common kitchen design error. Plan accordingly.
3. Proper ventilation is not a good idea
Even those who don’t cook often, they might forget to consider ventilation. You should not cook on the stove because of strong smells, such as bacon on Sunday morning. These smells can be dispersed by a ceiling fan or hood, which will help clear the air.
4. Storage Space is not enough
It is easy to get caught up in the details of what new kitchen finishes you will need and where they will be installed. All of your kitchen items, including dishes, tools, utensils and small appliances, as well as cookbooks, cleaning supplies and other cooking equipment, must be stored somewhere. Otherwise, you run the risk of a messy, cluttered kitchen design.
5. You don’t have enough lighting
People are so focused on the big picture, that they forget about the details. It is hard to imagine anyone wanting to work in a dark and gloomy kitchen. You will need more lighting if you have only one overhead fluorescent light. Pure Wow suggests that at least three types are recommended for lighting – spot, overhead, and accent lighting.
The takeaway: Plan, plan, and more plan
You can avoid these common mistakes in kitchen design if you plan properly. It takes careful planning and consideration of the details, as well as the larger picture. You can have the kitchen you want. Copper Creek Construction is available to help you with your kitchen remodel.
