The next step in carrying out your DIY kitchen design and remodeling project is the daydreaming phase. Sort out the pictures of your dream kitchens and decide which elements are the must-haves and which are impractical in the scope of your project, either due to cost or space constraints. You will want to measure your existing kitchen, marking in cupboards, counter tops and windows which will remain stationary. Let's say you have got your heart set on new paint and flooring, matching appliance covers, new cabinet facings and counter top coverings, track lighting, an island and a window greenhouse. Wow! Now that is a brand new kitchen. Sounds ambitious. Now let's break this makeover down into separate projects, done over a period of time. The idea is to organize each task such that your budget allows completion, while keeping your kitchen usable during that period, as much as possible.
There are online kitchen design services that enable you to design your kitchen online. Such services enable you to select various components of your kitchen to fit the space you have available, and then have it made up and delivered to you ready for installation. Some firms will also carry out the installation. What are the advantages of an online kitchen design service over simply calling somebody in to do it for you? Cost is one benefit: it is a lot less expensive to do it yourself online than for somebody to come to your home and do what you could do just as easily yourself. Another benefit is that you get exactly what you want, and you cannot blame anybody else if it is not to your liking.
The Benefits. The kitchen design incorporates a variety of significant factors with convenience being the most important one. The kitchen design must account for your daily routine and typical movements within the kitchen; for example, the appliances must be placed in a particular way so that it is convenient for your coordination within the room. The position of different equipment must be considered along with all other features as easy movement minimizes the risk of accidents occurring in the kitchen. Furthermore, your storage space should also minimize risk by having all pots, pans and cutlery in easily accessible, yet out of the way, places. It is recommended that you install hooks and drawers to make the kitchen more orderly. Effective lighting in a kitchen design also contributes to the beneficial appearance of a kitchen space, big or small. Contemporary kitchen designs present with built-in counter-top lights offer a classic, spacious feel. It is recommended that you install proper flooring to complete an overall positive kitchen effect. The choice of flooring is a very important one as an effective floor will minimize any risk of slipping and falling, and as the kitchen is a busy area the risk of accidents is quite high.
THE DESIGN STYLE. There are many design motifs available to you: Traditional, Modern, Contemporary, Country, Craftsman, Cape Cod, etc. The design motif that you select will obviously heavily influence the selection of all of the other elements in the kitchen. The cabinet style and finish have the strongest influence on the design style of the kitchen. As I mentioned, you can start by collecting magazine photos of kitchens to get a feel for what you do and do not like. They will give you great ideas for all things kitchen. Stock, semi-custom or custom cabinets have many different styles and finishes to offer and of course, custom cabinets can provide any design and finish
