Kitchen Remodel Design Tip #1: Know What Kind of Space You Need
There’s more than one kind of space in every kitchen. There’s work space, storage space, counter space, and what designers call ‘visual space’, which is the appearance of spaciousness in a room. You’ll often hear people call visual space “Airy” as in “I want a bright, airy kitchen!”
Kitchen Remodel Design Tip #2: Understand There Are Multiple Ways to Create More Space
One of the advantages of working with a design/build kitchen contractor in Weston is that they’ll be able to talk you through the pros and cons of the many ways of enlarging your kitchen. If you’re thinking about having a kitchen addition built, want to take out interior walls to create a bigger kitchen, or want to better define the kitchen in an open floorplan home, having their expertise makes decision making easier.
Kitchen Remodel Design Tip #3: Custom Storage Doesn’t Have to Be Expensive & It Makes Life So Much Easier
Sometimes the issue isn’t that the kitchen’s not large enough – it’s that it’s not well laid out and the storage isn’t set up properly to meet the family’s needs. Even without a pandemic, the way we use our kitchens changes over time as families grow up.
The decision to embrace a healthier lifestyle can also change the type of storage you need in your kitchen – kitchen designers are seeing a lot more conversations happening around the best layouts for families who need storage for fresh produce and natural ingredients.
