Remodeling a kitchen should be customized for your individual needs. Even if you are not a gourmet chef, this is a common dream for many homeowners. When you get to the point where you can realize your dream kitchen, many people will take to researching kitchen remodeling and the basics surrounding them. During the search, you are likely to come across the “rules” or guidelines to remodeling your kitchen. Where some of these recommendations are very viable, some of these rules can be broken. With this in mind, we at Prestige Construction & Design would like to share the more common rules that can actually pay off for you in your kitchen remodel.
Working Kitchen Triangle
This rule has been a guideline for kitchen design since the beginning of time. Perhaps not that long, but long enough to know that no one really knows its origins. The kitchen triangle is the designated space between the sink, refrigerator, and stove. This is not a law written by the kitchen gods that require to have your appliances laid out in such a fashion. Instead of incorporating the kitchen triangle rule, just do what is ideal for you. If this guideline helps you better organize your kitchen, then consider it. Remember that remodeling the kitchen is something you are doing to better fit your daily dynamics into your interactions and should be designed according to your needs and preferences.
Contrasting Kitchen Countertops, Island etc
Where this might be an attractive presentation for some, others might perceive the matched display as cold or sterile as it loses a lot of visual interest in your kitchen. There are many things you can do to break up the mundane. Consider what you may want as a focal point or what will make the kitchen visually stunning by, for example, having a differently colored island, cabinets, shelving, or a few cabinets with glass inserts. Another example would be to spice the kitchen up with variety of knobs and pulls hardware. These can be easily changed when you are looking for a change but still breakup the matching décor.
Neutral Kitchen Paint Colors
One of the guidelines is the use of neutrals in the kitchen. However, if you like the bolder colors, use them. This is your kitchen and it should be visually striking according to your tastes. If you want some bold, consider the deep red or emerald cabinets, or a neutral color kitchen with a bold accent wall. No matter what you like, follow your tastes.
