The first step to designing a kitchen

The first step to remodeling a kitchen isn’t to talk about that great countertop you saw on Houzz or the color of your cabinets. The first step to a kitchen remodel is to figure out how you like to use your kitchen. Are you an avid chef who loves to experiment and cook big meals for friends and family? Do you like to entertain in the kitchen? Will you need counter space for chopping and homework? Figuring out how you want to use the kitchen will give us a starting point for how to best utilize the space.

The next step is to think about function. You are limited by the space of your kitchen, so you’ll need to plan out the space to give you everything you need while still maintaining function. In a small space, you may have to give up on a few ideas. If you cram too many ideas into a small space, you won’t have time to move, and your kitchen becomes uncomfortable and impractical. The best kitchen design will maximize the efficiency, regardless of how much space you have to work with.

We used to just worry about where to place the stove, the sink, and the refrigerator. However, the modern kitchen has many more appliances to consider. We’re seeing a lot more kitchen design move towards creating separate workstations that each serve a function. Your kitchen becomes like a mini version of your house. You’ll have different sections carved out for various tasks like cooking, cleaning, eating, and just hanging out.

Flat-front cabinetry is also trending in modern kitchen design. By choosing a warm chocolate color for your cabinets, you can give your cool modern kitchen a bit of warmth.
