Tips for kitchen remodel
Tip 1 Kitchens are all about function
Tip 2 Personalize your kitchen
Kitchens are the center of our life. Try
adding a custom backsplash, a piece of
stained glass, or some moldings. Try
contrasting stains or mix up some custom
paint. There are endless ways to personalize.
Generally, I go to someone’s home, look at
the colors and the style in the rest of the
house and bring it into the kitchen. If you do
not like how you decorate your home, show
us pictures of what you like. We can make
your kitchen showcase your style and set the
mood for your home.
Tip 3 Since the kitchen is the center of your life,
open it up to the rest of your home
Today, the cook wants to be part of the
party. An open floor plan that connects the
kitchen with the dining room, or even better,
a family room, let’s you use countertops as
buffets or watch the Super Bowl while making
the chips and dip in the kitchen. Watchers
and helpers should be on the fringe where
they can talk to you but not get in the way.
It is best to lay out your kitchen so you can
do dishes and prepare food, chat with your
company and still catch your favorite TV
show on the TV. This can all be done.
Tip 4 Get rid of the clutter
Most people’s countertops are packed with
the coffee maker, toaster, food processor,
blenders, knives, spices, and pantry items.
This makes it almost impossible to prepare
food and makes the room look messy. Have a
place to store everything so you can see, and
use, those beautiful countertops. At Dream
Kitchens, we will store everything away so
you are ready for company any time of day!
Tip 5 Make your space efficient
There are many places we should get
exercise but the kitchen is not one of them.
Every item should be close to where it is used.
Good cooking is about timing and everything
should be at your finger tips. Most kitchens
have the pots and pans stored many steps
away from your stove, so you have to walk,
get down on your knees, un-stack your
pots and then restack your pots to access a
pan. I don’t get on my knees for anyone.
Dishes should be stored a step away from
the dishwasher and sink and dish towels
should be handy. Keep the plastic wraps
near the fridge. Everything should be at your
fingertips right where you need it.
Kitchens are truly where we spend
the most time. Kitchens should be
Beautiful, Tidy and Functional.
