There is more to a kitchen than just gorgeous cabinets and stunning floor. Planning a kitchen remodeling in Miami can be very confusing and exhausting. Here are some vital tips to help you transform your kitchen space into a functional and attractive masterpiece.
Minimize on Wasted Space
A kitchen is most effective when you have everything you need in its rightful place. The best way to do this is to eliminate wasted steps and movements. How? The kitchen items should be stored in reference to how often they are used and where they are used. For instance, breakfast foodstuffs and the utensils used alongside them should be stored near the kitchen table. All plastic containers and wraps should be situated near the work surface so that it is easy and less tiring to wrap the leftovers.
Consider Having Wide Walkways
The minimum width requirement for pathways around your kitchen should be 36 inches while the cooking zone should have at least 42 inches for a single cooking kitchen while a two-cooking kitchen should have at least 48 inches. This makes movement easier and most importantly, greatly minimizes the occurrence of kitchen accidents.
Plan the Island Functions
Form is the most important consideration when it comes to kitchen islands. If you are considering cooking and eating from the same kitchen islands, it is essential to ensure that there is sufficient space between the dining area and the cooktop.
Plan the Countertops
If you are the kind that likes cooking, you will need to have more counter space, preferably between the sink and the range. For example, you can combine two countertops so that it makes baking easy. On the other hand, if cooking is not something that takes a lot of your time, a single countertop will just serve the purpose.
Include a Message Center
If you already have a telephone area near your kitchen, you should consider having a message center near it. There are many creative ways you could do this but the most common would be to pin a bulletin board, whiteboard, or chalkboard in a convenient location.
Light Colors for Small Kitchen Spaces
Dark colors often tend to shrink spaces. If you use them in a kitchen that is already small, the general impression will be uninviting and unapproachable. The best option in such a setting is to use natural light and soft shades for cabinets to visually give your room an expanded appearance.
Have a Single Focal Point
A focal point is that area that holds the entire kitchen together. It is the area which cannot escape anybody’s sight because of its conspicuousness. These could be a busy countertop, splashy tiles, or bright kitchen cabinets. Depending on your preferences, come up with a unique focal point that highlights what your kitchen stands for and then do the design. You can also complement the focal point with eye-catching and classic details.
