Whenever you are doing a home cleaning or repair to add value and functionality to your home, you should consider some tactics that will add more home organization to your kitchen refurbishment. Here are some ideas on how to you achieve those goals when updating your kitchen design.
If you are determined to go about the challenge of redesigning your kitchen, beauty must not take priority over functionality. Regardless of the type of kitchen you have – a square kitchen, a U shaped kitchen, an L shaped kitchen, a rectangular kitchen, or any other type, you really should plan for your sink, your fridge and your cooktop or stove to form a triangle in which there is no more than six to seven feet between each appliance in order to provide quick ease of movement, good organization and perfect harmony regarding functionality when you are busy cooking. Don’t forget that functionality also means aiming for a design and materials that will make cleaning and maintenance easier.
Ensure enough storage
It is better to have too much storage than not enough. This type of good storage will help you organize the kitchen items and food better. It is even okay to provide storage for your seasoning bottles so that you are not clawing through a huddled mess in the cupboard to find them when you need them for a recipe. A large pantry with lots of shelves and even some pull-out drawers is always a welcomed addition. Be sure to use the proper cleaners before using them.
Paint the cabinets to save money
If you do not have money for new cabinets, but would like to splurge on getting a new countertop, you can just do a quick cleaning, then go ahead to do so and fully enjoy it. But you can also get a further new update by painting your cupboards in a nice white paint and by adding some new handles and pulls to the doors and drawers. They don’t have to be expensive to be functional and to look nice.
Make a chalk board organizer
After you are done with most of the updates in your kitchen design ideas, do a quick house cleaning on the walls and paint one of the smaller walls or part of the wall with some chalk board paint to add a trendy touch to your kitchen. You can write menus there, important appointments, kids’ events, etc. You can also attach some small painted boxes to the side for things like mail, a note pad to take messages and other items.
