The first of my kitchen design ideas is to work on the color scheme of your kitchen. If you are fortunate enough to have real wood cabinets, strip the finish off them and redo it with a lightly tinted stain. If your cabinets are not wood, you can go ahead and paint them in any color you wish. Paint the walls as well, in a color that best highlights the cabinets.
Kitchen tables can be placed in a small kitchen. If there is an island in the kitchen, you are already saving space. However, if you want a place in the kitchen to be able to sit down for meals you can nestle a table against the island. This will leave more floor space around the work space and the table altogether. Additionally, you can conform your island into a peninsula by adding it to the end of your sink counter space.
Sadly, one of my client's kitchens looked the same as it did ten years ago when her and her husband bought the house. Everything was outdated, including the paint on the walls, and to be honest, she actually hate inviting her friends over to visit. She told me that she would really love to be able to renovate her kitchen, but since her full-time job has become a part-time job, money is an issue for her. What she really needed were some great kitchen design ideas that are to put it bluntly, not inexpensive but cheap, cheap, cheap! After breezing through a few magazines and watching the Home Improvement channel, she had uncovered a collection of easy on the pocket, kitchen design ideas that even Jack Benny would love.
This will open up the middle of the floor for you as well as provide unrestricted access to the sink, stove and dishwasher. In order to preserve kitchen space and have a more spacious look, built in cabinets are another kitchen design idea. Wall cabinets are in a location that is easily accessible, yet they are not in the way or taking up any excess space. If you have cabinets that have space above them, small baskets can be used to hold some of the loose items that lay around taking up counter space.
If you want more space to move around with while working you may add and assign extra space for a work area like chopping, slicing and dicing area especially for times when your kitchen will be very busy. This also proves helpful so you will have a view of where to place electrical outlets, as commonly is the overlooked aspect. You may also wish to provide a room for a separate pantry and an area dedicated for office work. Ensure also the lighting design especially your work areas. Take note of the appliances that you will be using and have the correct measurement of each including your cabinets. To give you ease and accuracy in planning your kitchen, try using a kitchen design software. There are various templates of designs that help you to create your dream kitchen.
