Everyone has a different dream when it comes to having the perfect kitchen. People that don’t spend a lot of time in theirs may not care if it’s tiny and doesn’t have an abundance of cupboards. However, people that spend more time in theirs, and use it for more than just cooking, may want something larger with more cupboards and counterspace.
The first thing you need to do when it comes to designing your dream kitchen is to write out your dream. You need to be able to give others a visual of what you want. Do you want it small, large, room for dining within? Write it down.
It Starts With The Space
You need to determine how much space you have to work with, or how much more space you can come up with. This may mean having a contractor come in ahead of having your plans all mapped out, in order to find out if the plans in your head will even work. Maybe there is no way to expand on the room your kitchen is in, and you’ll just have to make your plan work with the size you’re stuck with.
Picking What Will Go In That Space
Even if you want a large kitchen and you’re stuck with a small one, you can still find room for all of the things that you want. Fill your walls with cupboards, extend your counter space where you can. There is always a way to make things work.
Maybe instead of a dining setup, you could invest in a bar and some bar stools for the kitchen, which would take up less space and could double as extra counter space when it’s needed.
The Colors And Decor
You will want to decide what colors to paint the walls in the kitchen. Will you be putting up borders? What is your theme?
If you have a set of dishes that has certain colors on them that mean a lot to you, you might want the kitchen colors to revolve around those. Or, maybe you collect rooster items, and want some of those colors. It’s up to you.
Furnishing Your Ideal Kitchen
Maybe you opted for that bar stool setup, or maybe you have room for a nice cozy breakfast nook. Maybe your dream kitchen is large enough for a full dining room setup within. It’s time to pick the furnishings, and that includes your appliances as well.
You want to make sure you have a stove/oven that fits, and will fit the amount of food you tend to cook. You also want to have a refrigerator that holds the amount of food you need weekly for your family. Make sure they match!
