Kitchen Design Essentials

Author : Paul Tominson

The first thing that you should make a priority when you're looking to create that perfect kitchen design is to budget strictly. Not only that, but you should also stick to the budget! (and no, it doesn't matter how pretty that flame maple ornament is). Ensuring that you work out exactly how much money you have to spend in advance will help you avoid that renowned interior design catastrophe: running out of money halfway through! It will also mean that you don't end up having any of those beautiful products recalled due to you being unable to repay the initial costs – not something that anyone wants to get involved in.

The second thing you will want to look at when becoming involved in kitchen design is to decide which type of kitchen you'll be wanting to work towards, as there is a wide variety of potential available. For instance, you might want to work towards a contemporary design which is often based around darker colours for a more baroque ideal (most modern bachelor pads are built around this idea, for instance). On the other hand, you may prefer to create a more modern theme which is more typically based around brighter colours for a feel that is more befitting of a family home. Obviously you might not have your own preferences yet, but it's still something that you should take the time to think about.

Thirdly, no kitchen design should be finalized (or even thought about) until you've taken the time to consider exactly what the aim of the kitchen is going to be. For instance, if you're someone that loves to cook and would much rather spend most of your time entertaining, then you're going to have very different requirements from someone whose primary aim is to spend all your time hosting cocktail parties. One will require a lot of cooking space, chopping boards and the like, where as the other will simply want a huge fridge, cocktail shakers and a big bar! Take the time to work out what you're really going to use the kitchen for, and you'll end up with a much more satisfying end result.

The fourth consideration that we'd recommend you make is to plan in account of the space you have to work with. Unless you're planning to knock through the garage to create a huge kitchen (and we wouldn't blame you if you did!), then it's important to make sure that you don't overdo the amount of appliances. Whilst it can be tempting to order more or less everything pretty that takes your fancy, you don't want to end up with an overcrowded kitchen: that way, you certainly won't end up with a kitchen that's the envy of your friends – which is sort of the point, obviously.

Finally, if at any point you find yourself uncertain about any aspect of the kitchen design, it's important to make sure that you consult an expert on the matter to gain a truly informed opinion. You'd be surprised how many people are available right now to help you get the kitchen that you truly deserve.
