Tips for Kitchen Renovation
With those considerations in mind, let’s take a look at some general tips to remodel your kitchen and avoid common mistakes. Reflecting on these issues will make the renovation process enjoyable and relaxed, so that you invest your money and time well in something worthwhile.
Measure your kitchen
Knowing the size of your kitchen will make your renovation plans much easier. This will allow you to maximize the available space in your area when designing and installing the new equipment. You should also take into account the traffic in your kitchen and the number of people using it.
By being aware of the measurements, you can estimate which items can or cannot be included, such as a kitchen island, bench, dishwasher, electric, cabinets and other accessories.
Manage space and functions
When you know the size of your kitchen, you can define how to manage the space according to the functions and uses to which you and your family are accustomed. This will make the kitchen comfortable to live in and prevent other functions, such as cooking or washing, from getting in the way at the same time.
When planning the new design of your kitchen, maximize the storage capacity in new places, storages, organizers and cabinets, to keep all the elements of the kitchen tidy. From pots and pans to cutlery and spices, everything should be stored well.
Also, make sure that no space, no matter how small, goes unused. Even the containers themselves can be decorative components to protect the essentials of your space.
Define your working triangle
The working triangle is a very good conceptual idea for the design of your kitchen. You should delimit the space for the sink, the refrigerator and the stove. In this way, you will be able to organize the kitchen according to the main activities, so that its use is efficient.
Calculate a reasonable budget
There is no doubt that the renovation of your kitchen will involve a significant expense. That’s why you should plan your budget well, to avoid going out of pocket. Look for comfortable prices for the materials and let the professionals advise you. Also include in your budget unexpected expenses that may arise in the process.
Use existing plumbing
Renovating your kitchen can be easier if you don’t change your current plumbing system. Many times, renewing plumbing can be the most expensive part of the process. However, with the consultation of an expert, you can evaluate whether or not it is pertinent to reuse your kitchen plumbing system.
If that’s the case, good for you! It will be one less investment. Sometimes it can happen that only some parts of the plumbing need to be changed, or require a total replacement. In any case, do what is convenient for your kitchen renovation.
Guide yourself through the samples before choosing and buying
Before investing in any aesthetic element, you should review all the samples and catalogs on the design, color palette, materials, decorations and accessories, to define the final style that you will give to your kitchen.
You must select from the samples the elements you like the most, and you can also consider the recommendations of professionals. The use of samples will help you visualize what color combinations and designs will work best in your kitchen.
Take advice from the experts and don’t lose sight of the whole
To culminate this series of tips, always get advice from professionals in design and remodeling of interior spaces. Express all your doubts, concerns, requests and visions, so that they understand what you want and what you need.
And even if you are the “do it yourself” type, always consider the recommendations of the experts. They can help refine your renovation plan and give you suggestions for changes that can improve your space. In any case, you have the last word.
Finally, don’t lose sight of the overall picture of your kitchen renovation. You need to appreciate that all elements (from the floor, to the cabinets, to the colors, to the furniture, to the appliances and accessories) are integrated in an absolute way, to achieve an aesthetic appearance.
