Facilities. What do you need to include within the kitchen? That'll depend on what you want from your kitchen. For example, is you kitchen to be used only for food preparation and serving? Then the minimum for most family kitchens would be: cooker, hob, sink, refrigerator, table or countertops, storage for food and cooking ingredients, storage for cooking utensils such as pots, pans, casseroles, etc, storage for kitchen cutlery, garbage container(s), Other common items to remember: dishwasher, freezer, microwave oven, kettle, tea or coffee maker, drinks dispenser, toaster, What about family dining? Will that usually take place in the kitchen? dining table and chairs, storage for dining crockery & cutlery, Does your home have a separate laundry or utility room? If not, you'll need to plan space for items such as, washing machine, tumble dryer, or other means of clothes dryiny, Space, Once you've listed all the essential appliances and convenience items you want to have in your kitchen, the next step is to check that there is enough floor space available for them all. Remember too - unless you are planning to do major re-building work, you'll need to accept a few "givens", such as: sink position is limited by location of water supply and drains plumbing, and probably windows, same with dishwasher or clothes washing machine, cooker & hob positions are limited by gas and/or electricity supply connections and controls, You'll see a repeated theme in the list above - "storage" - for all sorts of items from food to cleaning materials. That's why kitchen storage cabinets play such a large part in the space allocation and costs. In fact, the largest component of cost in most kitchen re-design projects is the cost of kitchen cabinets and countertops, especially if you've chosen granite countertops.
5. Break the Horizontal Line, Stagger the height, length, and depth of wall cabinets. Horizontal lines at the top and bottom row of cabinets can make a kitchen look rigid and static. A break from the horizontal line can give your kitchen remodel an updated look. 6. Build Bridges, Not Walls. Islands and Peninsulas are the New Kitchen Walls. Over the last 30 or so years, the open floor plan has become increasingly popular and the function of a great room (containing kitchen, dining, and living space) is becoming the norm. Many remodels we've done in the past have been transforming compartmentalized floor plans into a contemporary, open floor plan by knocking down any barrier walls between kitchen and living room. Instead of walls defining the kitchen's borders, peninsulas and islands provide a better alternative. They prevent the kitchen from spilling over visually into other spaces, and also allow the cook to maintain visual and conversation contact with family members and guests. 7. Find a Creative Contractor with Expertise and Realistic Ideas. There's no one size fits all approach to kitchen remodeling (or home remodeling in general). That's why it's important to find a contractor that has access to designers capable of creating unique solutions specific to your kitchen's needs. A popular model contractors are beginning to use is the design/build model.
