It’s where everything happens — talking, cooking, scheduling — so it’s important to make the space functional, comfortable, and attractive.
While it can be significant expense for most homeowners, renovating your kitchen is also an investment.
And may even increase the overall value of your home.
READ THIS BEFORE YOU RENOVATE
1)Not Planning Your Kitchen Design Accordingly
By this we mean take some time to consider your family’s needs and your lifestyle.
Remember that you need space to place countertop appliances and to prepare meals.
Get all your ducks in a row before you begin your kitchen remodel, because delays and changes midstream can send costs soaring. remember to consider every element including your wall color, cabinet colors, flooring, and hardware, and how it all ties together.
Many times islands are too small or too large for the overall kitchen space. Be reasonable in what will fit and where you can place it without hindering the flow.Do your homework and think through every choice ahead of time.
2)Not Selecting The Proper Backsplash
Play with colors by using different shades of the same tone, which can add a very sophisticated and modern look to your kitchen.
Although this may seem like a purely cosmetic feature, it is not. The backsplash protects your walls from water, steam, and grease.
3)Don’t Compromise Safety
The kitchen has the potential to cause harmful, even fatal injuries with the danger of fires, scalding, cuts, and falls. Protecting you, your family, and home is priority.
Remember those gas cooktops need proper ventilation and that means selecting the right size hood and making sure you have enough clearance around cabinets and work areas.
