Stunning Kitchens and more kitchens

So many decisions, so little time (and maybe money)!

According to the vast majority of home buyers, the kitchen is the most important room in the house. That’s understandable when you consider how much time is spent there.

For many families, it’s a lot more than the place where you prepare and cook meals. It’s also the ‘meeting place’, the ‘homework place’, the ‘quick catch up place’ and of course, the storage place.  Many of us often have little thoughts like “I wish that was there (or bigger or wider or higher)”.

When designing your own kitchen, you should consider how you’ll be using it. What kind of activities will you be doing? Will you be cooking elaborate meals, entertaining guests, or just making simple snacks?

Knowing how you’ll use the kitchen will help you determine what kind of layout, appliances, and features you’ll need. Or if you will be needing extra seating for it to be functional. Bench space and storage require careful planning, especially if you’re short on space.

Aside from being functional, you will also want it to look good. For this, you need to check on the shades, embellishments and accessories you’ll be using. The right shades of paint you will use can make a big difference in how it looks, so be sure to choose wisely.
