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.
UTILIZING YOUR KITCHEN. Are you an expert chef, who does it all: cooking, baking, barbecuing, or are you a minimal cook whose main goal is to just get a meal on the table for the family as expeditiously as possible, or are you somewhere in between? Do you always cook by yourself or do you often have family and friends help with the cooking? Do you often entertain and all flow into the kitchen while munching on your Brie between sips of chardonnay? Do you bake often and want a marble surface for that purpose? The questions can go on and on. Some clients have large, prestigious, homes and entertain frequently and/or have large families. They may have someone do the cooking for them. Some of these types of projects may need the full treatment, such as a butler's pantry or walk-in pantry, two islands, two refrigerators, two dishwashers, two microwave ovens, a wine cooler, a separate beverage cooler, a built-in espresso machine, sink, prep-sink and bar sink and glass-door cabinets to display the family heirloom china, etc.
They include both high tech appliances with their customized innovative accessories, to produce a sleek kitchen. This turns their daily kitchen activities into a blissful and beautiful experience. True to their feelings, a kitchen ought to be stylish, novel, efficient and aesthetic, as well as impeccable. In fact, most people will judge your personality from the design of your kitchen. With this in mind, let us look at why modular designs for kitchens are being embraced all over the world. Currently, these kitchen designs are considered to be the latest trend in home décor. Their innovators believed that the designs will greatly ease kitchen work, as well as make it fun filled, rather than boring. Actually, most individuals that have integrated these designs into their kitchen attest to enjoy doing kitchen work, rather than feeling compelled to do it. The added touch of glamour enhances their moods and morale.
To eliminate traffic issues in this type of kitchen design online, one entry is often closed off. This type of layout should only be used by one cook. If you want to maintain both exits, place the refrigerator near the end of the galley kitchen for easy access. This way, your family and friends can reach the refrigerator without interfering with the person who is cooking. If you need extra storage in the galley kitchen, install tall kitchen cabinets that go all the way to the ceiling. Wall storage is crucial. Buy a stepladder to use when you need to reach the upper shelf of the cabinets, and place the items you use less frequently on the upper shelves. By understanding the kitchen work triangle concept and how you want your kitchen to function, you will be more likely to create the kind of kitchen design online you have always wanted. Today, kitchens are often viewed as the hub of the home as well as a social center for family and friends. Planning your kitchen and doing kitchen design online can be a challenge, but the rewards you will receive are very much worth the time and effort.
