HOW TO STOP YOURSELF FROM OVERDOING KITCHEN RENOVATION?
The idea of remodeling is quite challenging yet fun. There are endless possibilities of combinations to work with when you are improvising the house. Our cooking zones somehow demand extra attention. One can either go with a vintage style or a minimalist approach. Some people prefer the open-style kitchen, whereas others like compact designs. However, it all depends upon space availability.
Whatever theme or style it may be, the first rule of renovation is not to overdo things to achieve ‘that perfect look’ following all Pinterest ideas. Sure, they seem quite attractive, but there needs to be a balance between the decorating part of the renovation and the usability.
After all, what’s the use of having a glamorous kitchen when you can’t even work inside it comfortably. One can encounter issues like spending too much of their time just cleaning and maintaining the outlook of the kitchen to feeling claustrophobic just because of the inappropriate arrangement.
To avoid overdoing a kitchen, we have made a list of some ways through which you can make sure that your kitchen space gets utilized in the best possible way without compromising its appearance. Here is a pro-tip, keeps things less stressful.
AVOID ADDING FRAGILE DETAILING
It’s better to avoid all that fancy looking material, it may look pretty, but it has no use in your kitchen. So what are we talking about exactly? It goes to all the crystal and glass, fragile decorations you intend to load your kitchen with all the time.
Moreover, materials like Limestone may seem attractive, but those water stains do get to your head. Glass countertops add to the glitz and glamour but isn’t it way too much? Besides, what would you do about a crack in the glass?
Quartz is a safe yet elegant option, in our opinion.
NO OVERLOADING OF KITCHEN CABINETS
We get it, too much storage is never enough. But overloading your kitchen with cabinets that you probably don’t even need cuts out all the space. Plan your kitchen space and see how many cabinets you exactly need.
It will be smart to blend in your cabinets with the theme of the kitchen. Nowadays, people are attracting towards traditional kitchen cabinets to create a vintage interior. However, a modern minimalist kitchen would require you to add something sleek, elegant yet adding to the minimalist touch.
TOO MUCH COLOR TO RAINBOW
Note this one down, fellas! Never make your kitchen like a rainbow burst. Its ideal to pick one color for the walls and cabinets and play around with the tints and shades.
Search various kitchen color palettes; this will help you decide how to add that color to your theme. Avoid dark colors, incase if you do plan on using black, red, purple, or dark green, pair it up with white. Maybe white walls with black countertop and cabinets.
On the lighter side, opt for tints of blue, mint green, or powder pink pair with chalk yellow or greys. Pick what speaks to you but remember not to overdo it.
NEVER GET YOUR SPACE CONGESTED
Let your kitchen breathe by keeping the number of furniture in your kitchen minimal, especially if you have a smaller space. You can place a corner countertop along with high chairs that can slide right under it when not in use or pick a dining table that is not the size of a car.
SAY NO TO RUGS AND CARPETS
What’s the point of having a rug or a carpet in the kitchen anyway? It may seem picture-perfect, but if you think about it, it has no use at all. You will just be adding extra work to your to-do list every time you spill something over it.
It also is dangerous to have a rug; you could end up slipping or tripping because of it and can get some severe injury. Safety first, please.
PICKING THE RIGHT APPLIANCES
Avoid appliances that are too fancy or take up a lot of space in your kitchen. Opt for the ones that fit in your kitchen space entirely as well as is pocket friendly. However, buying cheap appliances won’t do you any good either.
