Kitchen RemodelingPlanning, remodeling and designing a kitchen includes taking a few decisions that will help you to get a better deal where you can be comfortable while cooking in the future. Here are the things that you must decide beforehand:* You may choose from fitted kitchens that occupy less space and have more storage space or a freestanding kitchen that can be moved easily and taken to any place with you.* Lifestyle of the family - A single person that cooks rarely will prefer a minimalist's kitchen while a kitchen for a large family that is used quite often throughout the day needs a lot of storage space, groceries, cutlery and crockery and all the kitchen tools, equipments and appliances along with the sitting area for the family dinner gatherings.* Seating area - A small kitchen may accommodate a small breakfast table while a big kitchen may have the dinner table set to cater to the whole family. You may also use a part of your dining/living room as the kitchen to make more space for the seating arrangement.* Placing of refrigerator - Fridge should never be placed near the cooking hob as the appliances may not work properly. The ideal placement of refrigerator is between the entrance of the kitchen and the cooking area where all the members of the house can easily access it.* Kitchen Shapes - Efficient kitchen is one that allows easy movement and enough space for sink; counter for food preparation, cutting and chopping; and cooking area. The most popular shapes are galley kitchens, two-way galley kitchens, L-shaped kitchens and U-shaped kitchens.* Galley kitchens are the ones where all working areas are next to each other, have less storage space and require lot of movement.* Two-way galley kitchens provides for storage space below the worktop, cupboards are placed on the opposite wall for easy access to minimize walking movements, is more compact and must have enough between the two galleys to avoid bumping.* L-shaped kitchens provide more workspace and storage area, walking distance is minimized and corners of the kitchen can serve as the dining area.* U-shaped kitchens have the most workspace and storage area, has less floor area and are not for claustrophobics. In case, your kitchen seems too small, you may use one of the legs as a breakfast bar or provide for an island counter instead.* Decide on the kitchen layout, starting with the placement of sink, preparation area and hob, the placement of fridge and the service points for water, electricity and gas.Small Kitchen DesignSmall Kitchen IdeasHaving a small kitchen to begin with will ignite a lot of creativity and resourcefulness on your part. You have to choose every item and detail that you place in the room wisely in order to maintain a neat appearance as well as keep work as convenient as possible. You may be surprised to know that majority of people actually have small kitchens but still manage well.Tried-and-Proven IdeasNew appliances will help create symmetry and organization in your small kitchen. Look for save-spacing and energy-efficient ones to maximize your working space and budget. Built-in appliances like ovens are very ideal in a small kitchen so you have more floor space. Compact models for microwave ovens, blenders and the like are also good which you can stock away in overhead cabinets when you’re done using them. Make sure that the refrigerator is big enough to accommodate common perishables but not too large that it overwhelms the kitchen. Wine refrigerators may come in handy too if you have extra room.Another tried-and-proven idea for your small kitchen would be to increase countertop space. This boosts your working area so you’ll be able to avoid unwanted clutter and improve the work triangle. Try to increase the areas not covered or occupied by appliances with countertops. Try to make them deep enough so that you can work very comfortably [...]

Kitchen Lighting PlanLike any other room of your home, your kitchen too, requires a nice well-thought-out lighting plan. Nowadays kitchens are not just restricted to cooking meals, but also have many more functions. For many people, it is the most frequently used place in the house. Apart from the preparation of meals, kitchens, at present, also make a place for the kids to do homework, parents to assess the bills, reading, eating, and watching TV. Given all these reasons, it is essential to have adequate as well as flexible kitchen lighting.General LightingWhile devising a lighting plan for kitchen, the first thing that comes to mind is general lighting i.e. the light that'll be used more often than not. If it's a small kitchen, just one light in the center will provide the general light. Since most of kitchens are larger these days, perhaps a single light fixture in the center will not meet the lighting needs. So, the best solution is to go for recessed lighting as it is an excellent way to provide general lighting in a kitchen in a neat and clean manner.Right PlacementRight placement of the lights is very important. While designing a layout for the kitchen's general lighting, consider the areas where tasks will be done. These areas comprise of counters, islands and tables. By lighting these areas in most of the kitchens, the rest of the room too gets a good spread of general light. You can put the recessed lights fall out on the ceiling in a way that they are directly over the outside edge of the cabinets. The point here is getting the lights close enough to the work area. Don't ignore any corners that are left dark. If your kitchen has an island, install 2 or 3 pendant lights over it, to provide a stunning look to your kitchen.Task LightingTask Lighting is important in the kitchen to provide direct light over the counters, stove and sink. Placing one or two small recessed lights over the sink is attractive as well as useful. Chimney lights can provide sufficient light over the stove. To illuminate the counters, you can use under cabinet lighting in the form of simple fluorescent fixtures. Another nice lighting affect can be provided by using low voltage linear track that can be dimmed and endow very good light to the counters. You can also use xenon fixtures and halogen fixtures; however, xenon is definitely better as it has a longer bulb life than halogen.Accent LightingAfter you're done with general lighting and task lighting, the last thing to work on is accent lighting. Some kitchens have space above the cabinets. By providing lighting on top of the cabinets, such kitchens can look simply brilliant. Tray ceilings with crown molding can also be helped very much from this type of lighting. To make your kitchen look extraordinary, you can use either a low voltage type track or rope light. So, following the right kitchen lighting plan, you can make your dream kitchen in next to no time.Kitchen LightingWhenever the talk is about decorating the kitchen, one of the aspects that most of the people tend to overlook comprises of the lighting. However, since a person, more specifically the woman of the house, spends quite a lot of his/her time in the kitchen, good lighting becomes one of the most important features of the overall decor. When it comes to kitchen lighting, it is vital to ensure that not only is it enough, but also that it is not too excessive. At the same time, it should go well with the architectural details and overall decoration theme of the kitchen. Let us explore some ideas on kitchen lighting.Types Of Kitchen LightingFunctional LightingFunctional lighting, as the very name suggests, is used to get tasks accomplished in the kitchen. Apart from that, it is aimed at helping you find things in cabinets and drawers as well move around the room safely. Amongst the common kitchen functional ligh[...]

How to update a kitchen is something that many people are wrestling with. Rather than move houses or relocate, many are deciding to remodel their kitchen, bathrooms, and other rooms in the house. Ultimately, it is cheaper to refurbish the cabinets and change the kitchen floors than it is to move houses.When you look at your kitchen, you might immediately see many things that need help. Great kitchen design ideas involve making some changes but ultimately working with what you have. In an extreme case you might want to knock a wall out to make more space for a kitchen island but in most cases something that drastic is not needed.The kitchen counter tops and cabinets are what most folks see when they walk into a kitchen. If your counters are old, worn, and faded it is time to replace them or refurbish them. Granite is the "in" counter top with kitchens and all new houses are now being built with granite counter tops. Note that the color of granite is a personal choice but there are differences. A dark rock seems to show streaks more than a lighter shade of granite. It is similar to black and white cars: black cars always show dirt more than white cars. So, if you are looking for kitchen granite counter tops with the least maintenance you should choose a lighter color. First and foremost decide upon the size of the kitchen. This will depend upon the strength of your family and also for what purpose you want to use the kitchen. If your kitchen has to merely satisfy the need of a good storage and cooking place, then you can keep it small and simple. For this you can chose the “L/U” shaped kitchens. These kitchens can be accommodated in the odd corners of your house and thus is a great way to compliment your house pattern and geometry. Moreover the “L and U” shaped kitchens require less of floor area, provides more storage opportunities and plus the cook top legs can be used for various purposes like dining or breakfast table. Secondly decide on the kitchen layout. Based on the location of the electric points and the water connections, it is important to fix the position of the work station, the sink and the refrigerator. They together form the work triangle. It is advisable to keep the perimeter of the work triangle at least 12 feet but less than 25 feet. Having fixed the three main important kitchen components, you have to now think of organizing the other appliances based on its utility. It is also advisable to lookout for drainage points, position of the gas etc. You can hire kitchen design firms to do your layout or you can do the design yourself using kitchen design software. Without proper storage facilities your kitchen can be a real mess, so don’t forget to place as many cabinets and cabinet counter tops as possible without making your kitchen look clumsy. Storage is very important for a well planned kitchen and we shall discuss this aspect in details later. If you want to go by modern trends and have a family that sleeps together, eats together and also cooks together…… then you can opt for the multiple work station concept which is quite unique from the conventional kitchen shapes. It is possible to do so simply by putting the cook top in the center of the kitchen along with the sink, so that at any time 2 – 4 people can stand around it and work together.[...]

When you start searching for kitchen design ideas, make sure you choose between floor styles that work with the rest of your kitchen. You want to make sure that the floor colour and style goes with the style of your cabinets, counter tops, appliances, and fixtures. Since the kitchen floor is such a big decision and project, it is probably best to decide on it right at the start. Your kitchen floor will help determine many of choices you face after that.

A great place to start all kitchen remodeling ideas is at your local library where you will find an array of kitchen design magazines that will help you get ideas of what you like and don't like. Do you prefer marble or hardwood floors and what are your choices with each of these? What types of counter tops do you like and what colors do you prefer? These and many of the other questions you must answer might be answered by looking at magazines.

Another way to get ideas is to start going to homes that are for sale that have open houses. There you can see and walk into many different kitchens which will greatly help you get an idea of what you like and don't like. Unlike the magazines, here you will be able to see what the real floors looks like. This exercise should give you lots of kitchen design ideas.

Kitchen floor choices range between hardwood and laminate floors to granite and stone floors. Your budget may be the determining factor in what you ultimately choose but you must also consider such things as how much wear and tear will your kitchen floors get and what style is important to you. Some types of floors are easier to install than others and this may also influence your choice. Once you pick your kitchen floor material, it is then time to start making other decisions for the rest of the kitchen design so that everything looks right together.
