Live like a king ‘olive’ on a shoestring!
Our kitchens are where we cook, eat, entertain and socialize, so it’s important to create a kitchen design that ticks all these boxes – and more. If you’re on a tight budget consider revamping kitchen cabinets or investing in some new kitchen worktops to refresh the style and add years of service to the busiest room in the house.
Renovating a kitchen is a smart bet for increasing the value of your home, so that beautiful makeover could turn into a great investment for the future. Ready to get started? See here the steps to achieve your dream kitchen space!
Choosing a new kitchen is one of the most exciting projects when it comes to renovating the home decor. It can also be the most expensive, stressful and time-consuming. From picking the right style to finding a designer and agreeing on the layout, there’s a lot to take on board. However tempted, you are to rush into a showroom and choose your design, it’s vital that you take plenty of time to consider what it is you really want.
1st: Assess all your needs
First, have a good clear-out, so you’re not factoring in items you haven’t used for years. Now take a look around your existing kitchen and make a list of all the things you like and dislike about it. This could be anything from how much storage there is – and where it is – to the types of appliances and color of the cabinetry. This will help you focus on retaining or improving particular aspects. Time to do a proper summer decor!
2nd: Think about plumbing and heating
Will you be using existing plumbing for sinks and appliances or will you require additional pipework? If you’re planning to include a kitchen island containing a sink or other appliances in your design, you need to ensure that plumbing and electricity supplies are in place before flooring is laid. This is a very important issue to take into consideration when it comes to house design.
3rd: Consider lighting options
When planning lighting it’s a good idea to make the system quite flexible so you can regulate the areas of your kitchen independently. Secondary lighting, such as spots above cooking and preparation areas, is also useful. Lighting can have a very powerful statement in any area, for example, using lights you can make the illusion of a more open kitchen design.
4th: Be inspired
How you want your kitchen to look is, of course, a very personal choice. It really helps to collect images and magazine tear sheets and put together a scrapbook or mood board. Also, make a note of surfaces, materials or accessories you’ve seen that work well together. Decoration ideas will make easier to decide what you want to do with your own decor.
