Your kitchen is so much more than a food preparation area. This is the place where you enjoy your coffee in the morning, read your favorite newspapers and fashion magazines, hang out with your friends and have a glass of wine in the evening. At this point, your kitchen looks dull and uninviting. How can you change that? You should start by consulting a team of kitchen remodel experts. This way, you could count on the best sources of inspiration and follow the hottest trends without abandoning your own creative ambitions. When it comes to remodeling your indoor space, here’s what you should have in mind.
Design with Your Needs in Mind. Naturally, you have to determine how you’re going to use every single inch of space. If you live in a region where it rains frequently, you may want to design a utility area where you could leave your muddy boots before entering the house. Think about your skills and hobbies. Are you a master baker? If you make the meanest cookies every couple of days, you may want to design a baking zone including a worktop with the ideal ergonomic height (approximately 33 inches). If you are one of those people who like to consult their favorite recipes before getting to work, you could also personalize your custom cabinets by adding open shelves that could hold your written formulas for cooking success. You simply can’t go wrong with open shelving; this design particularity is sleek and manages to find its place in any kind of indoor space, regardless of its style.
Is your kitchen your favorite hangout spot? Do you often use it as a lounge area to host amazing gatherings? Here’s an idea that might work for you: throw out your old, beat up couch and replace it with a kitchen bar and tall stools with colorful leather cushions. Doesn’t this sound like a homey, welcoming place?
Channel the Unconventional. Rather than copy pasting design ideas borrowed from magazines introducing celebrity cribs, define your own style and take it to the next level. Frame and hang artwork done by your 3-year old, paint your own custom kitchen cabinets, apply wallpaper with your favorite motifs and let your indoor space tell the whole world who you really are.
Invest in Custom, Minimalist Furniture Pieces. If you truly feel the need for a meaningful change, dream big and make it happen. Cheap, standard, “one-size-fits-all” furniture pieces will probably disappoint you in the long run. On the other hand, custom kitchen cabinets made from your favorite materials, based on your unique creative vision, will always represent a smart investment. Do you think that reclaimed wood would go extremely well with glass knobs and pulls? Are you daydreaming about a sumptuous kitchen where bamboo is king and leather is queen? Work closely with your kitchen remodel specialists and turn your fantasy into reality.
