We love to share with you our latest kitchen design project. If you are planning to renovate your kitchen, visualize the style (i.e. contemporary, country, industriasaaaaaaaaaaaaal, etc.) of the kitchen of your dreams, imagine the mood you would like to express (the feeling of your space: formal, informal, warm, cold, etc.), determine your budget and ensure the new kitchen design is functional (works with your daily needs and lifestyle). Also, remember all pieces should be in scale to the size of the room and for all elements to work together, this way you will create a Harmonious new kitchen.
Helpful check list:
Review your existing layout and plan the new layout. Are you thinking about expanding? Remember the importance of flow & functionality, and also that you can save money by leaving major systems in place (i.e. gas, plumbing, and electricity).
Check basic kitchen guidelines regarding important dimensions and settings (i.e. work triangle)
Cabinets: Reuse, refinish or buy new?
