There is nothing in life quite as thrilling as declaring a budget and giving yourself the license to create yourself a brand new kitchen design, so that your house will possess the perfect kitchen that you've been dreaming of for years. Well, we're very happy for you! However, there are a lot of things that you need to consider while planning this new perfect room. That's why we're here to help you with our tips on essential aspects of the perfect kitchen design which will answer any questions that you may have:
Price: It's that dreaded word that no-one implied in interior design really wants to hear, but it's hard to get around the importance of working out your budget. Needless to say, sticking to the said budget is just as important! Failing to do so could lead to a variety of consequences, such as debt, repossessed children or even more importantly – that kitchen never getting finished! Always be brutally honest with yourself over exactly how much you can afford, otherwise you'll inevitably end up costing yourself more money in the long run: plus you'll likely end up with a half finished kitchen that looks worse than the one you started with!
Size: Once again, it is incredibly important that you seriously consider the dimensions of the space that you have to work with to ensure that you do not end up with a variety of unpleasant things such as uneven layouts, appliances that do not fit , not to mention a lack of anywhere to put a bin (you would be amazed how many people make the mistake of the latter!). Take the time to measure everything that you might need to: the dimensions of the appliances you're looking to fit, the actual space that you have to fit everything into, the exact size of any worktops you might want installed as well as room for tables and chairs.
Colors: You can spend all the money in the world on the very finest equipment, raw materials and decorating things, but make no mistake: if you do not take the time to make sure that all of these things match perfectly in terms of color , you will hate your kitchen every time that you go in there! Obviously, this is not what you want, especially if you have a few friends who are more on the critical side! If you're unclear about integrating different colors (and many of us are), then get some expert opinions from either your friends or from a specialist who has experience in kitchen design. This is one thing you do not want a mistake in!
Themes: This is a big choice, and should probably be one of the earlier ones you make: exactly which style of kitchen you're going to go for. This will obviously impact the types of materials that you use, as well as the appliances that you install. Whether you want a classic kitchen influenced by the styles of ancient Greece or a kitchen that would fit in perfectly in the rolling hills of Spain, ensure that you make the choice early so that you can go ahead with the rest of your design!
