Kitchen remodeling is always fun in theory, but the entire process can turn out to be extremely stressful without a plan. The best starting point for any kitchen remodeling project is to come up with an idea of the direction you want to go in and why. In other words, the way you design your kitchen should reflect your needs, goals, and how to best achieve them.
Kitchen designing can be complicated and extremely challenging without inspiration. One of the most recent trends in kitchen design that has inspired many kitchen remodelers is the concept of a modular kitchen. Modular kitchens might be right for a wide range of individuals and families, but they might not be the right fit for your own needs and goals in achieving the kitchen design of your dreams. If you’re looking for more options in coming up with the concept for your new kitchen, here’s a little more information about the ideas behind a modular kitchen design, how it might serve you, and things you should consider when renovating:
What is a modular kitchen?
A modular kitchen is a design concept that includes maximizing space, using a diverse range of materials to do so, and streamlining features of a kitchen to work well together. Modular kitchen designs often involve easy and efficient ways to create a kitchen space that is not only functional, but highly effective and clutter-free. A modular kitchen design is a modern approach on kitchen functionality, and with the help of a remodeling specialist, this design approach can perfect address a number of different kitchen-specific needs.
Why go with a modular design?
Modular kitchen designs address many of the common issues that homeowners experience when attempting to maximize their kitchen space and function. Paying special attention to organization and enhancing counter and cabinet space, modular kitchen designs are an effective way to tackle the kitchen conundrums we’re all so familiar with: lack of counter space, lack of storage space, and constant clutter.
How to reach your goal:
There are a number of ways to approach a modular kitchen design. First off, your goals might be determined by the existing space that’s available to you. Secondly, there isn’t one single way to approach a modular design. Therefore, it’s important to enlist the help of a professional to ensure that you get the most out of your kitchen design. Here are some things to consider along the way:
Think about storage
Modular designs often look to maximize space by thinking in terms of the available space from ceiling to floor. Generally-speaking, every bit of wall can be covered with storage. Building upwards is a common facet of modular kitchen design and remodel, so look upwards, not outwards!
Think about efficiency
Beyond maximizing your space in terms of floor to ceiling, you’ll also want to think about how you can make every surface usable for multiple different purposes. For instance, if you’ve always dreamed of having an island in your kitchen, you can take the opportunity to install cabinetry below the surface area to enhance the island’s functionality.
Think about your individual or family needs
Remodeling your kitchen is an opportunity to throw out the old materials and designs that don’t currently work for you and develop a space that caters to you and your family’s specific needs. For instance, if you enjoy baking, then you might want to have a lot of counterspace and storage for bulky kitchen appliances. Consulting with a professional always helps refine your design, but consulting with others in your household is always a good idea too!
