When you’re ready for your Tiny kitchen designs, the biggest problem is picking and choosing what to change and what to leave the same. Considering the fact that kitchens are one of the most used rooms in a home, space and arrangement is of utmost importance.
To start, the best thing to do is look at what is in the room now and make a list. On one side, write the things that need to be changed; the dislikes. On the other side, list what you would like to be the same, or at least similar; the likes. Look at the kitchen from different angles to help see where everything is. If you like that the stove is near the door, take note of that.
Did you like the size of your kitchen before? If not, you can remove a wall and combine a room together with it(given that you don’t need that room and aren’t afraid of a rather large task). Imagine the room without an appliance or a table if there is one. If anything is unused or unnecessary, you can add a lot of room by removing it. If the size is enough as is, you may think about putting a table in it as a focal point to the room. A growing trend is to have an island in the middle of the kitchen. This way, you can put up bar stools and have a small eating area that looks great.
Above all, counter space is the most frequent complaints home owners have about their kitchen. Thankfully, they can be redesigned from scratch to pan out. Also, small appliances may be mounted under a cabinet or against a wall to allow more countertop space. Some appliances can be purchased ready to be mounted to the bottom of a cabinet(especially coffee pots and other small appliances). With more counter space, you can have more room to wash and dry dishes, or really anything. Another option would be to remove part of a wall and turn the open space into a counter. This, also, is a growing fad.
Most people agree that a kitchen should have a warm and inviting tone when it comes to lighting. Lights can bring almost any desired atmosphere to life. Track lighting works great over food prepping areas and less intense lighting over where a person would eat brings it all together nicely.
You may find that you want to replace the material of your countertops and cabinets. The older ones tend to stain and scratch easily. Newer ones are more durable. Also, newer material is easier to clean. The colors involved in the material of your kitchen could help complement the lighting to bring out the tone you’re trying to put off.
If you’re strapped, trying looking around at remodeling companies to see if they have any discounts in their stock. Most of the time, they have too much material from a remodeling job and will sell it cheaply. Checking around for discounts is the best way to keep the cost of remodeling low.
Appliances now are more eco-friendly and work more efficiently than the older ones. If cost isn’t too much of an issue, most appliances now offer nice features to make life easier on the busy cook of today.
