The kitchen is one of the most important places in the house, if not the heart of the home. It is where meals and family memories are made. As one of the most bustling places in the house, it is all the more crucial that the kitchen has a design that fits your needs and your style. Below is an outline as to how to create the best kitchen design possible.
Start with the Big Picture
Kitchens come in different shapes and sizes, such as the L-shape, U-shape, and galley. At Viking Custom Homes, you have several templates of house designs from which to choose, but you can customize your home as much or as little as you would like. It is your chance to make the most of your kitchen design and make it your own. Starting with the big picture, though, will ensure the area has unity and flows.
Since the middle of the 20th century, the standard kitchen design has three points: the stove, the sink, and the refrigerator. It is best to keep the fridge closest to the edge of the room so that if someone wants a snack, he or she can retrieve it without disturbing the cook.
What You Need
A kitchen is more complex than three appliances, however. Consider how you use the kitchen and what tools you will need. Have clusters of spaces for the main tasks you do in the kitchen. Not everyone will need spaces for the same things, like an expresso station or an extra-large pantry.
Lighting is a major part of any room. You will want to maximize natural light in the kitchen, but you will also want to have electric lighting that makes sense with each area. Each part of the kitchen design needs to have a specific purpose with no unnecessary additions. Consult a professional designer for input on this subject.
Style That Makes Sense
The decorations on the cake, so to speak, are the stylistic elements of the kitchen. The color and style of the room should be what you like and also make sense with the rest of your home.
