Designing your new kitchen can be hard because there are tons of choices. This talks about ten tings you need to pay attention to. You wouldn’t want to leave something important out of your design so a list like this is helpful. There is more to it than just paint and tile colors.

Key Takeaways:

  • Have you looked around at your kitchen lately and thought it could use a facelift? While binging shows like Fixer Upper, Design on a Dime, or House Hunters may have you ready to knock down cabinets and buy a reclaimed farmhouse sink, we all know how quickly diy can become a disaster.
  • The layout of the kitchen is crucial. If it isn’t planned correctly, you might find yourself crossing the kitchen multiple times because things are never quite where you need them. The layout should be designed around the traffic pattern of typical use.
  • I once lived in an apartment where I had to shut the door to the kitchen before I could open the oven. You have to ensure that not only do you have enough space to walk around doors and corners, but that there’s enough room to open the doors of cabinets and appliances without scratches…or injuries.
