Prior to starting your renovation, give some serious consideration to the key features you have in the kitchen. Also consider the key activities you would be involved in while in the kitchen, what appliances you use and how they are used.
As we are becoming more inclined to opt for environmentally friendly fixtures in our homes, an increase in eco-friendly kitchen renovations had to occur. There has been a rise in the purchase and manufacture of kitchen cabinets that emit low levels of volatile organic compounds, lowering air pollution, and in the installation of LED lights, which are high energy savers. The 'natural' look of wooden floors and stone countertops is also popular in new kitchen renovations, both options that are environmentally sustainable.
But incorrect assumptions can just as easily be made by the homeowner. A homeowner handed a water filter kit to the contractor and asked him to install it. The homeowner had read on the box that the water filter was good for the whole house and could be fitted on the main water supply. When she returned at the end of the day, the contractor had installed it under the kitchen sink. She'd never told him where it was to go, she had just assumed that he knew it was meant for the entire house.
During Sue and Leon's main floor renovation, the designer had called for the laundry room backsplash to consist of stainless steel tiles; beautiful, but at a cost of approximately $5,000. Sue balked. The contractor suggested instead a row of the tiles, two feet high, just behind the washer and dryer at a cost of $500. Sue was grateful that contractor made her aware of the costs and had an alternative suggestion for her.
Further necessary research - the internet is your new best friend: Researching kitchen companies and contractors has become a whole lot easier with the age of the internet. Now there are websites which are specifically focused on capturing word-of-mouth reviews from consumers online. If the companies you're interested in using don't have any reviews, you may want to look at other companies that do and compare their services. Also check out the company's website. If they don't have one, you have to wonder how professional they are.
Kitchen renovations don't necessarily have to take a lot of your time or cost too much. If you lack the time and budget to carry out a complete revamp, from the kitchen floor to the ceiling, you can avoid all that unnecessary work. There are lots of inexpensive and simple things you could perform by yourself.
The main thrust of a practical kitchen layout has traditionally been focused on the working triangle design. This was typically where the stove (oven), sink and fridge formed the three points of a triangle.
