Other than the bathroom, the kitchen is another area of the house that is utilized quite frequently. After all, who doesn’t enjoy whipping up a sandwich or popping some popcorn to eat while watching a movie during movie night? A kitchen should not only be functional, it should be fun and be aesthetically pleasing. No one wants to be stuck cooking in front of a bunch of ugly, outdated decor. Your cooking environment influences your mood and is where you’ll go when you grab a quick breakfast before heading in the morning for work.
C.C. Dietz wants to make your kitchen a cooking retreat. Here are a few design tips on creating the perfect kitchen paradise:
- Go for function over style – Even though you may want to be very stylish, it’s best to plan ahead for function. Otherwise, you’ll have a very pretty kitchen with not a lot of function. Plan to have a lot of storage and plan to build cabinets all the way to the ceiling to maximize storage space.
- Plan the lighting scheme – When designing a new kitchen, many people just figure that overhead lighting will be enough. Often times, however, lighting such as under the cabinet lighting could be a better asset for cooking and other kitchen tasks. Consult with your local York, PA kitchen remodler (such as C.C. Dietz) to figure out which type of lighting is best for you.
- Plan for appliances – Make sure that you have the right lines to install the appliances where you want them to go. It is possible to move where the lines are located, but usually is a pretty expensive option. Also, before getting that new dishwasher or refridgerator installed, they have to fit into the spaces that are designated for. This can be determined by measuring those spaces. And replacing your appliances are the safest bet. Not only because they’ll match with the new kitchen, but because it’s usually a good decision to update your appliances as often as possible.
- Don’t forget the trash! – Trash recepticles are an essential part of any kitchen. How many times have you heard the question “where’s the trash can” when someone new is in your kitchen? Pick a space in your kitchen and designate that space for the trash receptacles.
