Interior Design – Kitchen Design Ideas
There are three basic features to consider when planning for your kitchen interior design. First, walk through and address the functionality of the kitchen. Review storage needs, where you prepare your food, and how and where you clean up. By designing your kitchen around the functionality that suits your unique lifestyle, you will be ensured that you reap all the benefits of your kitchen remodeling investment.
First, assess the movements that you will be making every day in your kitchen. How do you move through the three phases of selecting stored items, cooking food, and cleaning up? Design your kitchen for maximum and most fluid ease of movement through these tasks. The typical triangle of work is a classic design which maximizes your traffic. Stove, refrigerator and sink should be arranged in the shape of a triangle within your kitchen. Having multiple and individualized work stations can also increase productivity in your kitchen, as more people can work in tandem without crossing paths. Kitchen counters, and separate kitchen islands can accomplish this task.
Maximize your storage options by purchasing customized kitchen cabinets. Kitchen cabinet design should focus on meeting your storage requirements, and maximizing all unused space in your kitchen. Cabinets and drawers can come in many shapes, sizes, materials and colors. Depending upon your overall decorating technique, you can choose from a plethora of available options to compliment your desired style. Cabinet professionals will provide beautiful, customized cabinetry for your kitchen remodeling project. Home customization experts can provide consultations to assess your needs and recommend a cabinet system that will both optimize the work and storage areas in your kitchen, as well as appeal to your personal taste and style.
Other kitchen redecorating ideas can also create a whole new atmosphere in your room or around your house. Depending upon your budget allowance, replacing appliances will create a whole new look. Changing to an all stainless material will provide your kitchen with a more contemporary feel. You can also change backsplash tiles or add a new coat of paint to produce a new ambiance and effect. Lighter colors open up smaller kitchens, while darker colors provide a more dramatic and formal effect. Change existing lighting fixtures or add recessed or track lighting to illuminate your kitchen. You can also change your existing flooring such as replace your vinyl floor with new tile, or add wood overlays or existing flooring material.
