Basic Kitchen Structures
There are several different kitchen structures to fit your particular tastes or needs. Here are a few examples to consider when making plans for your new kitchen:
These days the formal dining room is often the loneliest room in the house. Instead of dining together, most families tend to pause for a quick bite in the kitchen. That's why adding or improving an eat-in kitchen tops most kitchen remodeling lists. It is also considered a savvy investment, because it's considered a basic necessity by a growing number of homebuyers.
Surveys show that 80% of homebuyers consider an island in their kitchen to be essential. Kitchen islands can range from simple work and storage stations to multi-tiered custom units that include a sink, cook top, under-cabinet refrigerator, and a solid surface countertop that extends into a breakfast bar or peninsula.
If you're wondering how to make your small kitchen feel more expansive without adding on, consider the possibility of taking out a wall or two and converting the area to an open plan. While this option calls for careful planning and a building permit, it is quite feasible and the results can transform your home.
Kitchens for Cooks
If you're serious about cooking, your remodeling project presents the opportunity to consider specialty appliances, fixtures, accessories and design elements that can make your kitchen a joy to use. As with professional's kitchens, a cook's kitchen should operate like an efficient production line. If you love to cook and you love to entertain, this might be the style for you.
The key to creating a kitchen that fits everyone in the household is flexibility. Designing a dream kitchen that is also user friendly includes: usable areas that are easy to reach, adding a number of accessories such as roll-out trays and waste baskets, designs to meet the needs of all of your family members from height to lighting, all while making it easy on the eyes.
