#1 Don’t Skimp on Quality
If you only have a limited amount of money for your kitchen design, don’t skimp on the project. Your new kitchen is supposed to last for years, so balance your budget out so you can spend more money on the most important items. If you love to cook, make sure to put extra money into appliances or a durable countertop that can handle food prep.
#2 Don’t Overdo It With Storage
Do you really need a lot of storage? Sometimes storage is used as a space filler, but if you don’t need the extra storage, don’t get it. The last thing you want is to spend money on storage and primarily use it for junk.
#3 Bigger Isn’t Always Better
Huge kitchens are beautiful, but if you aren’t a heavy cook or don’t have space, avoid this mistake. If you want more space in your kitchen, consider eliminating a space filling item or shift things around. Playing with your layout can open your kitchen and make it seem larger without extra demolition.
#4 Don’t Overdo Your Design
Designing is fun, but it’s important to know when to stop. Keeping it simple can be more beautiful than an elaborate design. Plus, you don’t want to go over your budget.
#5 Don’t Be Boring
The kitchen is often referred to as the heart of the home. Add a personal touch as long as it’s functional or can withstand the test of time. It’s your kitchen, have fun.
