 Steps to Your Perfect Kitchen!

1. Consider how you use your Kitchen . . .

Is this a place where you spend a lot of time? Do you prepare meals daily for your family?

Or if you aren't a cook, maybe just have a cup of  coffee. 

So,if you are a gourmet chef, go for all the bells and whistles.

Or choose components according to your needs.  Stick with the basics.

2. Develop your Kitchen Plan . . .

The all important kitchen plan will provide you with the most function. 

The kitchen work triangle - the spacing between the sink, refrigerator and stove, is the basis for all kitchen plans, large or small.

This spacing illustrates convenience, and the size of this triangle can determine the efficiency of your kitchen.

Consider the amount of steps you must take to prepare a meal.

Keeping this work triangle in mind will guide to the best layout for your kitchen plan.

Place appliances and your sink first, allowing for the best possible connections for water, gas, etc.

Additional cabinetry and/or a pantry gives more storage.

An island or peninsula add extra storage and eating as your space allows. 

Upper cabinetry can be placed on available wall space. For a cleaner look ypu can use fewer uppers. 

This creates a great look, especially in an open floor plan.

Open concept kitchens are a combination of several areas into one cohesive space. A Great Room comprised of a Family Room Area, a Casual Dining Area, as well as a Kitchen.

Color and style should coordinate with all these adjoining areas, giving you a beautiful, and comfortable space for your family to enjoy.
