The idea behind a kitchen remodel is to make one of the busiest rooms in your home more functional and more beautiful. Sometimes little details with the best of intentions can undermine these goals. With a bit of advanced planning, these trouble spots can be avoided. Here are 3 kitchen design mistakes to avoid in your next kitchen remodeling project.
1. Putting Kitchen Appliances Beside Each Other
Colors can vary slightly when using different manufacturers or production batches. Leave some visual space between your appliances while grouping items together for cooking, refrigeration and cleaning.
2. Small Appliance Clutter
Ask your remodeling designer for a closet or an appliance garage to enclose small appliances, like your coffeemaker or mixer. Newer garages feature lift up cabinetry not the tambour doors of old, which minimizes kitchen clutter.
3. Ordering Order
Be sure you know the precise sizes of your appliances before you order your surrounding cabinets. They will look nicer and fit better. Make sure that the countertop areas are properly measured within the cabinetry areas so that they can be ordered accurately and cut to fit your available space.
