Designing Your Dream Kitchen

 In Kitchen

Remodeling your kitchen is a major undertaking, but the result can transform the look and feel of your home and increase its value. Planning ahead will help you get exactly the kitchen you want.

Function First

The very first thing you should consider when you’re planning your kitchen is what you use it for. Do you envision the kids doing homework, they will need a space large enough to accommodate. Do you like to bake? Plan for additional space for a proofing drawer with your range. If you have a large family or plan on cooking for large crowds, you may want to look into a larger refrigerator.

A properly designed kitchen has an efficient connection between the sink, the cooktop, and the refrigerator. Compare kitchen designs to determine the best layout for your space. Think about if you desire or need an eat-in kitchen.

Color Palette

While neutral colors are classic, you can change a kitchen’s personality by adding some color. This can come in the form of cabinet stains, backsplashes, countertops, and painted walls or cabinets. Each color and tone brings with it its own feeling—think about cheery yellows, bold reds, and moody greens.


Your home changes as daylight changes, so you should have lighting that can accommodate these variable conditions. Combine under cabinet lighting, traditional overhead lights, and chandelier fixtures to change the mood of the room at a moment’s notice.

Talk to a Professional

Getting in touch with a pro before you take your first steps can help you make a plan that works with your budget. A remodeling expert can also help you identify what’s realistic and make style and color recommendations.

Choose Neutral Appliances

Remember the avocado green fridge? Just because it was trendy at the time doesn’t mean it will stay that way. Avoid having to replace your appliances unnecessarily because they’re no longer fashionable by choosing neutral, classic appliance colors.
