5 Tips for Kitchen Design

Kitchen remodels can be one of the most satisfying updates to your home. Being one of the most frequently used spaces, kitchens offer great potential for a beautiful update to your home. Lots of living happens in the kitchen whether it be hot coffee brewing at the start of the day or a home cooked meal warming the home in the evening. Make sure this space is life-giving and functional for your needs.

Tip #1: Aim For an Open Kitchen Design

With so much hustle during the day, it’s important to have a space that is calm and peaceful to enjoy your evening meal. An open kitchen design can give a peaceful feel to the whole house. One way to create an open feel to your kitchen is to remove extra walls and put in peninsula based kitchen cabinets. Not only will the kitchen feel more open – the opposite room will have a more open feel as well. That’s a double win!

Tip #2: Maximize Wall Space in You Kitchen Design

If you have a lot of wall space around the circumference of your kitchen, put it to good use with extra cabinets or decorative shelves! Kitchen are unique in that there is a lot of potential for vertical storage. Consider putting your best glassware on display with the use of glass cabinet doors. Maybe you wish to add a decorative flare to your kitchen area. Consider decorating the space above your cabinets with indoor house plants. Kitchen wall space does not have to be empty! Choose a kitchen design that will maximize the layout of your kitchen.

Tip #3: Kitchen Design with Optimal Lighting

Lighting is one of the most important aspects of an appealing kitchen design. Good lighting can be achieved a number of ways. The first, most optimal lighting option is natural light. Having multiple windows in your kitchen can achieve this goal. Large windows over the sink area give the kitchen a central light location. Windows over the sink area also provide a nice view for daily work! Other ways to design good lighting are the uses of ceiling, under cabinet, and stove lights. Make sure these have a dimming option for a subtle warm glow appearance. In short, aim for maximum natural lighting with well placed electric lights to fill in as needed.

Tip #4: Have Fun With Contrasting Color in Your Kitchen Design

Choosing the right colors for your kitchen is one of the most important factors in an appealing kitchen design. Do you prefer warm summer tones or cool winter pallets? Most any color styles can be used as long as the theme remains consistent. In the kitchen to the left, the deep bright blue contrasts well with the medium dark brown cabinets and black appliances.

Tip #5: Counter Top Color for Matching Kitchen Design

Counter tops provide a great opportunity to contrast the color of the cabinets. If your cabinets are dark, go with a lighter counter top. If you have white cabinets or very light colored cabinets, go with a counter top that is black or dark. Also consider choosing a counter top that has a varied pattern. This will make dirt less visible.
