The kitchen has long been seen as being the important hub of activity in the home. The kitchen has become both the centerpiece and showplace of the home. So naturally the appliances used in the kitchen have become status symbols.
Remodeling your kitchen can not only add to your own enjoyment but, often increases the value of your home should you decide to sell it. Attractive and functional kitchens will often make a home seem more friendly and inviting and encourage buyers to pay the asking price. You don`t need a gourmet kitchen all you really need is a kitchen that looks smart, is user-friendly and inviting. If remodeling your kitchen accomplishes that then it may add to the price of your home considerably.
Another alternative to consider is, to use existing pieces. For eco friendly decorators, check out home salvage stores and yard sales. Depending on the mood of an event you may want to create uniformity. Consider slip covers for this purpose and more. Change the look and the comfort of dining seating with the season. There will be many types of covers available online and at home stores. If, however, you are crafty, they can be a quick, custom project.
Down Lighting - Down lighting is energy efficient and consists of small aperture cans in the ceiling. They can produce a longer lamp life, minimize glare and produce a bright crisp light.
Stagger the height, length, and depth of wall cabinets. Horizontal lines at the top and bottom row of cabinets can make a kitchen look rigid and static. A break from the horizontal line can give your kitchen remodel an updated look.
When designing the floor in a small kitchen, it is best to try not to use very large tiles on the floor or on the wall. Smaller tiles increase the visual size of the room. Lighter and more reflective surfaces tend to brighten up a smaller kitchen and give it a more open feel. For the appliances, you can purchase compact appliances such as a narrower dishwasher, a narrower cooking top or compact ovens. These will give you kitchen a little more space without it losing its functional look. Empty wall space can be used for storage. You can hang up hooks for pot holders and cutlery.
Copper Sinks - This style of sink adds uniqueness to the kitchen. Most copper sinks are crafted from the finest quality copper. This super-thick copper is hand-hammered, and formed into a work of art that adds a touch of class to any kitchen. Copper sinks have a living finish, their patina ages and improves over time, therefore it resists stains and other discoloration. They are also the healthier choice because bacteria cannot grow on copper. You can choose from a natural "weathered" copper or dark bronze for a warm dark look. They are offered in "natural" or polished and finished in satin nickel. Most copper sinks are heavy because of their extra-thick casting process. This enables a lifetime of use while absorbing noise and repelling dings and scratches.
Assess the movements that you will be making every day in your kitchen. How do you move through the three phases of selecting stored items, cooking food, and cleaning up? Design your kitchen for maximum and most fluid ease of movement through these tasks. The typical triangle of work is a classic design which maximizes your traffic. Stove, refrigerator and sink should be arranged in the shape of a triangle within your kitchen. Having multiple and individualized work stations can also increase productivity in your kitchen, as more people can work in tandem without crossing paths. Kitchen counters, and separate kitchen islands can accomplish this task.
