Why do so many homeowners and renters forget the kitchen as a part of the interior design when planning? Should the design work simply end after the large appliances such as the stove, refrigerator, oven and dishwasher have been added?
You have spent hours deliberating over what appliances to purchase. Some shoppers prefer white appliances, others prefer black. Then, there are those who prefer stainless steel. Regardless of the preference, a great deal of time and money is usually spent choosing the right appliances. The same amount of care and deliberation should go into ensuring that the other elements of the kitchen are the right choice.
What storage options will suit your needs best? Will open storage be convenient? Or do you prefer storage with doors that can be closed? Do you have adequate space to store things in the cupboards? Or will additional shelving be required? These are all important questions that must also be considered in your overall kitchen design plan.
Does the design plan for your kitchen match with the rest of the house? If you find yourself mixing design themes, be sure to choose themes that will complement each other. For example, a modern kitchen can include a few items that are contemporary in nature, without confusing the overall design. Is there a seamless transition from your living room to the kitchen?
