The kitchen is certainly one of the most important places inside your house, so it is only
fitting that you put some of your resources into making sure that you are getting the
most bang for your buck.

That being said, if you were to ask any interior designer about your home makeover,
specifically tackling your kitchen, what do you think will they say to you?

Well, I happen to have some tips that I have gathered from some interior designers so if
you want to know what they are, do read on to find out.

Is Your Kitchen Spacious?

For the most part, your kitchen should be spacious enough for you to move freely when
you are inside. Think about putting a refrigerator and a complete gas range and you will
easily find that they take a lot of space.

If you are going to construct your house from scratch, it is vital that you be conscious of
the space that is given to the kitchen. That is because not accounting for the space
constraints could potentially lead to problems, especially if you are planning to add more
kitchen equipment.

Choose the Right Color for Your Cabinets

If you are thinking about creating a kitchen extension, it would be wise to put the
extension somewhere that gets more natural light. That is so that if your original kitchen
is not receiving a lot of natural light, then the extension should provide adequate
amounts of it.

Aside from that, choosing the right color for your kitchen cabinets should also be
something that you have to think about as well. Think about adding a grainy wood finish
to it so that it will look more visually appealing in an otherwise dull and boring room.

If you do not want the rustic look, you might as well use punchy and bold colors,
provided that you actually want your kitchen to look more vibrant than it currently is.
Painting them with bright colors can last you more than 5 years, given proper care.

Pick the Right Finish

This boils down to preference. There are some people that want to have a matte finish
on all of the kitchen cabinets, for example, but opting for more sheen or glossy finish is
not at all entirely bad.

If you are not entirely sure which to choose, you can ask your kitchen designer to help
you decide as they will be the ones equipped with the right knowledge to give you the
answers that you seek.

Having the Right Storage

It is also important to think about the storage spaces that are going to be installed in
your kitchen. For example, standard floor cabinets are okay if you are not going to be
putting anything small in it (like your spoons and forks). However, it may not be the ideal
storage to put all of your cups, saucers, and cutlery.

Good storage can actually make or break the design of your kitchen so it is crucial that
you also think about what you’re going to need moving forward.

It Should Have Ample Lighting

Your kitchen should have adequate lighting to ensure that you get enough light to cook
your meals visibly without having to rely on an external light source.

You can also think about adding some mood lights as well so that you can also use your
kitchen as a place to eat.
