Basics Of Kitchen Remodeling
Kitchen remodeling done by architects or professional home designing companies needs a huge budget. Families are often found to take loans for home improvements which include kitchen improvement. However, if you dont want to get into debt, you can do minor alterations in the kitchen within a smaller budget funded by your savings.
Kitchen remodeling primarily focuses on these main parts –
– Cooking area and cooking appliances
– Food storage area
Since people are habitual of hoarding things in order to restrict the frequency of shopping to once a week or even less, the second part is now as important as the first.
Cooking area includes the kitchen counter and the sink which is constantly in use while cooking. If you are making a new counter, select the right material to make it. Choices vary from granite stone to ordinary stone or even marble. The platform has to be rock hard to sustain various temperatures, water, wear and tear and huge loads. Never ever experiment wooden or kitchen counter made of soft material. You will need to remodel it in couple of years. Even marble platforms are not advised as marbles develop cracks eventually and are brittle in nature. Spill some water on the new counter and check that it doesnt leak down to the floor.
Plethora of cooking appliances is available in market. Super stores dedicate entire sections to kitchen appliances. Refrigerator, stove, oven, microwaves, mixer, juicer, grinder, electric choppers are mandatory appliances. Also of equal importance is their placement in the kitchen.
The need for adequate storage area for food has increased over the years. No wonder you see refrigerators always stuffed. Multiple doors, wardrobe size refrigerators too run out of place. Variety of snacks and ready to eat lunches are available. While doing kitchen renovation, make sure that you have sufficient storage area. Dont make too many storage cabinets such that it becomes difficult to walk around in the kitchen. Make storage cabinets at suitable levels so that every member of the house can reach them easily. Store the more often needed things at lower levels and keep the less needed ones at the higher level.
