The kitchen is a fast-paced and dynamic focal point of almost every home. It’s where you cook meals and converse with your friends and family, and you probably have fond memories of eating breakfast at the counter when you were young. As one of the most frequently used areas of the home, it’s important to ensure that your kitchen design matches your needs and your lifestyle. Kitchen remodeling is a smart investment for homeowners who are looking for a fresh and updated design, but it’s important to ensure that you don’t make any design mistakes along the way. In today’s post, we’ll outline a few of the most common kitchen remodeling mistakes we’ve encountered over the years.

Skipping the Details
Kitchen remodeling is an exciting experience. You’re choosing new countertops, cabinetry, and perhaps even rearranging your appliances. It’s easy to think about the big picture, but you shouldn’t forget to consider the small details of your remodel. Do you have any items that you’re particularly proud to own? Perhaps you should choose one or two cabinets with glass doors rather than purchasing the same style of cabinetry for the entire kitchen. Are your cabinets overflowing with spices and other cooking ingredients? Consider choosing kitchen cabinets with room for a lazy Susan or some other kind of organization tool.
When you’re remodeling your kitchen, you’ve probably given careful attention to the overall look and feel of the new space. It’s easy to picture your new granite countertops accenting your gorgeous new kitchen cabinets, but you should remember that you’ll be filling your new kitchen with appliances and other decor. Consider the color scheme of your current kitchen — do you have an existing color scheme in use? Think carefully about how your current appliances and knicknacks will look in your new space, as you may not want to have to purchase new decor after you’ve remodeled.
After you’ve given some attention to your kitchen’s aesthetic designs, you should carefully consider the physical layout of your kitchen. Even if your lifestyle doesn’t make the kitchen triangle concept all that important, you should always make sure that you can open your cabinets and drawers without any clashes. It’s annoying enough to have your drawers bumping into one another when you need to have them both open at once, but it’s even worse to chip or crack your beautiful new cabinetry because of a kitchen design flaw.
