It can be quite challenging to design a functional kitchen. Although the layout of the room itself greatly impacts the options for arranging everything from appliances to furniture to other elements, a family’s lifestyle also influences these design details. In kitchen remodeling, we should keep several factors in mind as we plan for day-to-day life and use. Below are some tips regarding the planning of this design.
The ergonomic spacing of household appliances and furniture being adapted to the room’s shape is a crucial detail when it comes to kitchen use. Prior to determining the layout, it is important to pose an important question to yourself. Do I cook frequently? If the answer is affirmative, your kitchen should be fully tailored to the requirements of the family member who prepare food.
There are a variety of solution for different room shapes. One efficient equipment layout is referred to as the working triangle, enhancing food prep processes by arranging in order: fridge, sink, dishwasher, stove. Basically, long live ergonomics! Also deep, fully openable drawers with organizers in them can be home to pots, plates, containers, and food products.
A few words about the color choices
The next exciting step is color! We may eat very few meals in the kitchen if the colors we choose seem too depressing. Or we may eat many meals in the kitchen if the color balance is a positive one. Color affects appetite!
Which colors are recommended?
We are limited only by our expectations. If we are aiming to be practical, we are better off selecting bold furniture that can hide grimy surfaces and make a smaller room appear optically bigger. On the other hand, if we are looking for a non-traditional color scheme in our kitchen, we can choose furniture with color details from the purple or red color palettes. Warm colors always tend to make a space feel cozier.
The last element on our list is the kitchen’s worktop and which material to use. The most common and practical countertops are those of conglomerate, steel, or granite, all meant for everyday use and protected from heat damage. If your household is not into cutting boards, granite may be a better way to go in your home’s kitchen design in case of scratches.
