Kitchen Remodelers Share Tips on Creating a Practical Yet Quaint Space

Like most homeowners, you want your kitchen to look beautiful without sacrificing the convenience that a practical kitchen design offers. So how can you design your kitchen to make it more practical, with help from a kitchen remodeler?

The first step is to design it based on activity. For instance, place the stovetop, chopping block and griddle all into the island to maximize space and provide all cooking appliances where you need them. Additionally, include room for storage underneath the island for easy access to pots, pans and other cooking utensils for practicality.

Choosing the Right Fixtures and Appliances

Other factors that affect the look and function of any kitchen are the fixtures and appliances. Upgrade appliances to more modern ones as well as any fixtures and hardware. It’s amazing how much better a kitchen can look just by switching out old and outdated hardware on kitchen cabinetry to newer, more modern hardware. The same goes for kitchen sink facets.

When you’re remodeling your kitchen, make sure to utilize smart spaces. Lazy Susans and multiple drawers and shelves within cabinets can instantly triple your storage space and make your kitchen more functional and less cluttered

Working Closely with Your Design Team

Kitchen remodeling teams stay updated on all the latest trends in the industry. They can provide you with practical, space saving ideas that you’ve never even heard of. For instance, they might recommend floor to ceiling cabinetry in a small space to increase storage space.

Just because you have a practical kitchen doesn’t mean that it can’t still be beautiful. Finish off your kitchen with fine furnishings and hardware, beautiful lighting and well-crafted cabinets to give it a high-class and luxurious touch.
