Giordana Baresi. Kitchen. February 15th , 2018.
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 Everything was outdated, including the paint on the walls, and to be honest, she actually hate inviting her friends over to visit.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.
Kitchen layouts have different categories so it is important for you to decide on the basic floor plan. Efficient layout maximizes time and minimizes efforts of moving from one point to another. An effective work triangle should be carefully planned. The idea of a work triangle optimizes the flow between work areas. Careful planning allows you to determine the number of work areas you want to be installed as well as take into consideration the number of people who will be using the kitchen.
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.
The cart is very resourceful, and can be stored easily by sliding right in next to your sink. A small kitchen hutch is also a good idea since it has pullout parts like storage drawers and cutting boards. A small hutch also has glass doors on its upper portion where a few plates and fine china may be stored. An open plate rack can be built in or placed against the wall as an addition.
When you are making the calculations for space in your professional kitchen design ideas, do not forget to calculate the height of all of the counters and workspaces. If the height is too low or too high, it will make working in the kitchen unpleasant and tiring. Whether you are going to use gas or electric to cook, it should also be incorporated in your professional kitchen design ideas. Many cooks prefer to use both gas and electric. What size will your ovens be? Keep in mind that you need bigger ovens for the large trays and baking sheets. Do you want grills, griddles and barbecue access? Do you want that barbecue to be charcoal? In order to keep the kitchen cool, dry and comfortable, do not forget to incorporate kitchen hood heat extractors.
