5 Useful Tips on Planning a Dream Kitchen

The kitchen is probably the most important room of a home. It’s where we cook, eat, laugh and spend memorable time with our family and friends. That’s why many homeowners think about remodelling their kitchen, to make it more suitable, practical and enjoyable for everyone. If you consider remodelling your own kitchen, we are happy to share with you 5 useful tips and tricks for planning the dream kitchen.

1 – Gather pros and cons of your current kitchen: There are certainly things you love and hate about your current kitchen. Do you have enough storage space? Do you need a bigger fridge? Is it easy to maintain? Making a list of pros and cons will help you realize what items and features you must have, what you would like to have and what you want to avoid in your future kitchen.

2 – Measure up: A G-shaped kitchen may look breath-taking to you, but can you actually fit it into your home? Therefore, it’s crucial to measure up your space! Check out kitchen-finder for more info on how to measure your dream kitchen.

3 – Choose your style: Look online (and offline, of course) and gather pics of inspiring kitchens you really like. As a next step, consider color, fixtures, flooring, material, benchtop etc. This will help you figure out what exactly you want and what kitchen style fits you perfectly. In doubt, go simple and classic and add a little twist to show off your personality and style. Opt for easy to clean, low maintenance materials, especially if you have kids (or cats or both).

4 – Set your budget: It’s easy to spend quite a lot while remodelling a kitchen. For this reason, we recommend doing a math, setting a budget and sticking to it (as much as possible). You should consider how long you plan to use your new kitchen and how much you are willing to spend on it.

5 – Hire Experts: Once you know the measures, the style, the must-have items and would-like-to-have finishing touches, it is time to hire professionals, who will help you reach your goals and get the kitchen of your dreams. DIY is fine, but only if you’re really experienced in such importand and demanding projects. If not, leave it to professionals to make sure you won’t end up with a kitchen that’s neither practical nor aesthetically pleasing.
