When budgeting or designing a new kitchen or remodel, the backsplash sometimes slips to the end of the list. Or worse, it’s left out of the plan altogether. This may save you money in the short term, but in the long run it will cost you a lot of time and effort.
An open plan kitchen may require more thought, especially if space is limited. An L-shape kitchen takes full advantage of the space available for storage and even a quaint dining area that suits your decor and layout.
One of the biggest complaints about kitchen design is the lack of counter space. Considering all the kitchen activities that require a countertop, as well as appliances that are permanently located there, you want to fit as much open horizontal surface area in a kitchen as possible. An easy way to do this is by adding an island or breakfast bar to an L-shaped kitchen.
Islands that obstruct the flow of traffic to and from the sink, refrigerator, stove and primary workstations will create bottlenecks. An island should be at least 4 feet long and 2 feet deep and it needs enough room for people to move and work around it. Kitchen renovation experts say that unless your kitchen is at least 8 feet deep and 12 feet long, you shouldn’t even consider an island.
So, whether you are designing a kitchen from scratch or just looking for some swoon worthy inspiration for your existing kitchen, here are some tips for creating a gorgeous contemporary-style kitchen.
Many of our home activities — cooking, cleaning, eating, drinking, socializing — take place in the kitchen. Which is why a beautiful and functional kitchen is so important. Regardless of your kitchen design style, organization and layout are key components. Take a look at these renovation mistakes you should avoid and design tips to try, so you’ll end up with a practical and elegant kitchen design.
