For example, if your cabinet frames are basically sound, and the existing floor layout is good for you, then you could avoid spending far more than necessary by simply refinishing kitchen cabinets, floors, walls, replacing aging appliances, and fitting contemporary kitchen light fixtures. At the other end of the cost (and disruption) scale, you could have an expert cabinet maker building kitchen cabinets, fully customized to your design and style preferences, with brand new integrated appliances throughout, decorative kitchen tiles for the floor, and personalized picture kitchen backsplash designs on the walls. There would also be a modern kitchen island design featured in the center, and an elegant family dining space of course. For many of us however, there will be trade-offs we need to make to get as close as possible to our ideal kitchen, while keeping within the bounds of affordability.If this is your case, you could consider several lower cost approaches to kitchen construction, and especially cabinet installation: , factory-built cabinets - can be installed by a kitchen fitter (not as highly skilled as a cabinet maker), flat-pack, or ready-to-assemble (RTA) cabinets - can be DIY installed, or by a kitchen fitter, refacing your existing cabinet doors and drawers - specialist task, but probably less costly than rebuilding all your kitchen storage cabinets. But what if you've completed your dream kitchen specification, developed a practical layout design, selected your style preference, and chosen the best value installation approach, and its still way over your budget?
Where are you going to put the play kitchen in your home? A lot of homes do not have the area to accommodate a large toy kitchen or multi-unit kitchen play set. If you have a play room, multi-unit pretend kitchen set may work for you. If you have the wall space, then a combination single-unit kids kitchen will work. Otherwise consider a play kitchen island or table top toy kitchen. Once you have decided where the kids kitchen will go, you need to look at the decor of the room. Kitchens come in all sorts of colors, shapes, and patterns, so you should be able to find something that matches or least does not clash with the room. How long are you going to keep the kitchen? If your play kitchen is going to hang around for a year or two and then head off to a new home, there's probably no need for a large, heavy, elaborate kitchen. On the other hand, if you intend to keep the kitchen for five or six years or more, you should get a sturdy wooden one that isn't going to fade or crack with time. If the kitchen is to be passed down through a progression of children and perhaps generations of children, a handcrafted, heirloom quality wooden kitchen would fit the bill. Where are you going to put the all the play kitchen accessories? Play kitchens beget play kitchen accessories. There are all sorts of play kitchen toys: pots and pans, small appliances, ovenware, aprons, kitchen towels, utensils, and pretend play food. Some play kitchen sets have more storage than other kitchen play sets. You may want to take that into consideration.
3. Decide Whether to Paint or Stain. The debate continues, to paint or to stain! I'll leave my biases out of this one (even though stain is easier to maintain, paint is often still preferred) and list the major pro's and con's: Stain, colors come in variety of shades, Repair and touch-ups are easier. Easier to keep your cabinets looking good for a long time. Less expensive and fewer steps. Distressing or glazing make the maintenance easier. Great choice for the Do It Yourselfer's, Paint, Probably the most popular look amongst home owners. More process steps than stain and more expensive to finish. Touch-ups can be difficult. Refinished often requires professionals to match your existing colors. On average 10-12% more expensive than stain ($2,000 more on a $20,000 kitchen packet). 4. Choose Appropriate Colors. This might seem like the simplest of things to do in a kitchen remodel, but choosing the right colors can either bring harmony to a room, or a create a wrong impression. In basic color theory, colors have different meanings and are generally either stimulating or relaxing. Here is a list of the colors of the rainbow and their meanings: Red: Stimulating/Increases Appetite, Orange: Stimulating/ Increases Appetite, Yellow: Stimulating/ Increases Appetite, Green: Relaxing/Balance, Blue: Relaxing/Decreases Appetite, Indigo: Relaxing/Decreases Appetite, Violet: Balance/Relaxing/Decreases Appetite, The kitchen should be a combination of both relaxing and stimulating colors. It is difficult to work in a kitchen that is too relaxing but at the same time shouldn't be too stimulating that it makes you hungry.
