Kitchen remodels are exciting, nerve-wracking and expensive all at once. The kitchen is the hub of the home, where you gather with your friends and family every single day. It is where you spend the majority of your time so you want it to be somewhere that is welcoming and inspirational. When it comes to kitchen remodeling we have seen a couple mistakes in our years of experience and so we want to give a few ideas on how to get the biggest bang for your buck when it comes to your kitchen space.
Work in a triangle. We noticed that not everyone uses this tip and it causes an extremely unbalanced flow in a kitchen space. What do we mean work in a triangle? Well, when you design your kitchen you should be separating your appliances in a triangle shape. You don’t want to put your refrigerator, sink, and oven all in a direct line of each other. If you have your oven and fridge spaced out and on the same wall as each other, it is usually a good idea to add the sink in on the island. You can have a great flow in your kitchen that won’t make you walk miles before you can rinse your veggies off.
What’s the most important besides the flow of your kitchen? It has to be your appliances. When remodeling you want to install top of the line appliances. Stainless steel, energy efficient appliances. Some of you may be thinking that you don’t mind downgrading a few notches to save some money, but when it comes to your kitchen you don’t want to skimp on this. The real estate market is so competitive no matter where you live these days and one thing that sells one house over the other is your kitchen. Buyers are spending more than ever purchasing homes and because of that they don’t want to settle for anything less than the best.
Keep these two things in mind when you are remodeling your kitchen and you will end up with not only a beautiful space, but a space that will give you a return on your investment.
