Bernadette Chartier. Kitchen. October 31st , 2017.
Sadly, one of my client's kitchens looked the same as it did ten years ago when her and her husband bought the house. Everything was outdated, including the paint on the walls, and to be honest, she actually hate inviting her friends over to visit. She told me that she would really love to be able to renovate her kitchen, but since her full-time job has become a part-time job, money is an issue for her. What she really needed were some great kitchen design ideas that are to put it bluntly, not inexpensive but cheap, cheap, cheap! After breezing through a few magazines and watching the Home Improvement channel, she had uncovered a collection of easy on the pocket, kitchen design ideas that even Jack Benny would love.
The first of my kitchen design ideas is to work on the color scheme of your kitchen. If you are fortunate enough to have real wood cabinets, strip the finish off them and redo it with a lightly tinted stain. If your cabinets are not wood, you can go ahead and paint them in any color you wish. Paint the walls as well, in a color that best highlights the cabinets.
If you want more space to move around with while working you may add and assign extra space for a work area like chopping, slicing and dicing area especially for times when your kitchen will be very busy. This also proves helpful so you will have a view of where to place electrical outlets, as commonly is the overlooked aspect. You may also wish to provide a room for a separate pantry and an area dedicated for office work. Ensure also the lighting design especially your work areas. Take note of the appliances that you will be using and have the correct measurement of each including your cabinets. To give you ease and accuracy in planning your kitchen, try using a kitchen design software. There are various templates of designs that help you to create your dream kitchen.
If you have lots of kitchen design ideas in mind, there is probably one common thing about them - simplicity. Many people are enticed into bringing the country style theme in their kitchens because of the homey look and feel. While modern kitchens often have better functionality, nature lovers and those who love the laidback type of life, will definitely find more happiness in these types of kitchen design ideas.
The appliances should be next to each other when you are designing the kitchen. This increases their efficiency and prevents you from having to walk across the entire room to get from one appliance to the other. If you do not require a large refrigerator, you can purchase a smaller, deeper one to save more floor space. There are software design tools that can help you come up with design ideas for your small kitchen and appliances. You can also get great ides from home improvement stores.
