It can be difficult to envision the look you want. You have spent years in this kitchen and have grown accustomed to the usual look. A good place to start planning your DIY kitchen design and remodeling project is at the library. Page through the home decorating magazines. Look for issues that focus on kitchen designs. There are also magazines dedicated to the kitchen. Notice different arrangements, color schemes and features, such as pantrys, islands, breakfast bars and lighting which you find attractive. Of course, you may not be able to fit everything you want or like into your kitchen design, but these magazines will provide all the food for thought you will need. Photocopy pages of kitchens with particular features you did like to integrate into your DIY kitchen design and remodel. Pencil in notes of color schemes and note the manufacturers of particular products (usually in the index) that you like. Pay a visit to your local DIY center. These stores always have brochures for any number of projects, such as creating special effects with paint or building a kitchen island, which are free. Check especially in the kitchen display section for even more ideas. Carry a notebook in which you can jot down the name or product number of items such as tiles, cabinet facings, appliance covers, flooring, light fixtures, sinks or faucets that strike your fancy. Go online as well. With this preparatory work out of the way, you should have a large portfolio of inspiring ideas. Take a look at wallpaper collections.
Good kitchen design online means having a layout for your kitchen that provides an efficient and pleasant area in which to prepare meals and do related tasks. Understanding the kitchen work triangle concept and basic kitchen layout types is a valuable starting point to design a kitchen online that you like. The kitchen work triangle consists of the distance between the sink, refrigerator and range or cooktop. Each one of these areas becomes a focal point in the kitchen and forms the three points of a triangle with different distances between them. Done correctly, proper kitchen design online will give you the most efficient food preparation area layout in your kitchen.
HOW & WHERE YOU WILL EAT. You may prefer to be able to eat in the kitchen by having an island with seating. The size of the island that the room will accommodate will determine how many persons you can seat. Seating at an island reduces the storage space available in the island, so the balance of the kitchen storage will need to absorb this loss. You can basically sit at three counter heights: chair height (29-30"), counter height (36") and bar height (42"). If you have an adjacent breakfast room, you may want to eat there in the interest of having more storage space in the island. If the room will accommodate it, you may like the idea of a built-in booth in the breakfast room or kitchen, in lieu of a typical table and chairs. Many clients like to have the option of eating in both the breakfast room and at the island in the kitchen. In some cases there is no breakfast room and the dining room serves as both breakfast room and dining room. In any case, you should give these and other possibilities careful consideration.
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.
