The kitchen is the heart of the home; it’s where you prepare meals, enjoy family time and entertain guests. To make the most of the space, your kitchen has to be as functional as it is beautiful. In today’s post, JLR Home Renovation recommends practical design ideas for your kitchen remodeling project.
Get Into the Zone
Design your kitchen with activity-based zones in mind. For example, the storage area comprising your refrigerator and cupboards should be located in the same area or as close to each other as possible. The eating area should be separated from the preparation area so you and your family can really appreciate dining together.
Storage Space Strategy
Floor-to-ceiling cabinets are a good idea, especially for maximizing the storage space. However, they can look bulky and may disrupt the design flow of the kitchen. If design continuity is an issue, choose open shelves. You can also install cabinets in your kitchen island. Make sure these cabinets can be accessed from both sides of the counter. Floating shelves are another viable storage option. They’re trendy, practical and, above all, they spare you the hassle of rummaging through dark, cumbersome cabinets.
Considering Counter Placement
Place your counters on the side where your refrigerator opens. This way, you won’t struggle with unloading groceries. Counters should always be accessible and should be spacious but not too massive that you can’t reach from one side to the other without straining. Keep everything sensibly sized. You don’t have to choose large kitchen components if a compact variant would suffice.
