by Premium Kitchens Premium Kitchens

Your kitchen serves a vital role in your house. It is one of the places where most gatherings and great conversations take place. You prepare your meals and share them with your family in the kitchen. This makes the kitchen essentially the center of you and your family’s center of day to day living. An up-to-date and fully functional kitchen is also one of the first things that prospective homebuyers will notice. Simply put, having a well-designed and maintained kitchen is always a good investment whether for your personal comfort and enjoyment or to increase your home value for when you want to put your house in the market later on.

With all these in mind, in order to achieve all your kitchen goals, there are a variety of factors you should consider when designing your new kitchen. Below are five of the most important things to bear in mind when designing your kitchen:

 

1.   Be Realistic About Your Budget

 

The success of your kitchen project lies greatly in your budget. Be sure to plan your expenses ahead and always stick to your budget. Keep a budget diary during the construction process and make sure you manage your resources and allocate your budget accordingly.

 

2.   Plan the Kitchen Layout Properly

 

Prior to starting your kitchen project, see to it that you already have a good kitchen layout in hand. A good layout is necessary to ensure you have the proper measurements and for you to be able to maximize the potentials of the spaces in your kitchen. Don’t forget to take into account the triangle workflow theory in your design to achieve a smooth  workflow and balance in your kitchen.

 

3.   Don’t Just Set Your Eyes on Trends, Make Functionality your Priority

 

It is important that you don’t just focus on what’s trendy and stylish for your kitchen project. More than having a stylish kitchen, your kitchen should cater to your lifestyle and needs. You’ll want to have a kitchen that will last you long and serve its purposes according to the unique needs of your family members. You’ll also want to have a kitchen which will be able to hold up its aesthetic value for many years to come.

 

4.   Your Color Choices Matter

 

Colors are an all important thing in the kitchen. You can play around with colors to add visual interest to your kitchen. Your choice of colors also helps set the mood and make your kitchen feel warm and welcoming. If you have a small space, you can use light colors to make it appear more spacious. In addition, keep in mind that your kitchen is part of the bigger picture so it’s also important that the color you choose will match the style and character of your entire home.

 

5.   Safety Should Come First

 

Aside from ensuring that you have a comfortable and fully functional kitchen, it is also vital that you design your kitchen with safety in mind. Make sure your kitchen is safe for your family members by taking good lighting and visibility into account. Ensure standard and properly grounded electrical wiring. You might also want to consider adding safety elements such as rounded edge countertops, slip-resistant flooring, and safe cook-top and storage in your kitchen.
