There are many recipes for creating cakes. Some are simply straight forward while others are culinary works of art highly pleasing to the taste and eyes. How are these masterpieces created and what do cakes have to do with my kitchen remodeling & renovation?
Creating a kitchen isn’t any more complicated than creating a cake. The process is similar in a lot of ways. You can put a new twist on an old recipe or construct a brand new one step-by-step. No matter, you must decide first:
- What is my taste I like
- How much do I want to spend
- When do I want it to be done
- What size and shape do I prefer
Majority of cakes have the same basic ingredients, but they will not taste special until you stir in that special ingredient. So it is with a new kitchen.
Every kitchen has the same basic design elements:
- Sinks and faucets
- Walls, moldings and other architectural details
It’s a Kitchen Remodeling & Renovation designer who plays the role of baker in your new Kitchen Remodeling & Renovation plans. A designer can give your kitchen its own unique flavor by helping you find the right mix of styles, materials, and colors.
Starting points include:
The architectural style of your home by making your home’s interior reflect its exterior, you bring continuity to the whole structure
Your needs—perhaps you want space to cook big family meals, you’re an at-home gourmet, or you have special ADA accessibility concerns. Your cabinets’ door style and color will have the most impact on your new kitchen’s palette by making the strongest visual statement.
Appliances also deserve top billing. Which ones you select and where you put them will determine how cook-friendly your layout is.
Next you’ll want to choose complementary countertops, flooring, plumbing fixtures, and architectural details. Don’t try to get everything to match exactly. You can best give your kitchen a certain feel by making sure everything coordinates but still keeps its own character.
It’s hard to be patient while you’re waiting for your new kitchen to be installed. Make other arrangements for your meals and protect your belongings in rooms near the work area.
When it’s all done, celebrate with a party—and some cake!
