So you’ve got your dream home, but now it’s time to design your dream kitchen. Whether you have a large family, or you live alone and simply like to entertain, you know that they say “The kitchen is the heart of the home” for a good reason. So here are a few tips to help you design the kitchen of your dreams, no matter what your budget may be.
1. Consider style AND function.
Sure, picking out paint colors and finishes is fun. But think about what would make your life more comfortable in the kitchen. Love to cook, host dinner parties, or feed a big family? Double ovens are right up your alley. Hate the cleanup? Check out dual-drawer dishwashers
2. Open up your floorplan.
Think about how you move in the space and interact with others. Do you want to be able to chat with your family or hold conversations with your friends while you’re prepping, cooking, or cleaning? Do you want a statement kitchen island offering that casual dining element? That’s what an open concept kitchen is all about! And spending a little more on a kitchen redesign to attain it is something you’ll never regret.
3. Storage, storage, storage.
Being able to access what you need in your kitchen easily is crucial. So making sure everything has its place is just as important. And get creative with your storage. Consider open shelving if you have nice dishware you’d like to show off that works with your color scheme. Think about things like shelving for cookbooks, or a cute wine or spice rack.
There you have it! Your kitchen isn’t just a place where you cook or dine—it’s a place in which laughs are heard, and memories are created. So take these tips home with you and add this to your weekend DIY project list, or let the pros at Jeff Cook find you a home with your dream kitchen!
