Having saved your hard-earned money for months—maybe years—for a much-needed and wholeheartedly desired kitchen remodel and redesign, you will want to ensure that every decision is pre-planned and well-thought-out. To help you on your way, continue reading to discover five top tips for designing a brand-new kitchen. 

Introduce Some Color

Naturally, when most people think about a new kitchen or bathroom, they imagine a clean, open, and clutter-free space, which is more often than not painted in cream or crisp whites as a basic palette.

This time, however, why not inject some much needed color into the most functional room within your property, either by theming the appliances along a bright and bold, popping color and tying these in with the cutlery and tea towels, or else investing in duck-egg blue kitchen cabinets. 

Choose Built-In Appliances

If you are lucky enough to benefit from an entirely empty space with which to work, you may well want to think about choosing built-in appliances, namely the big ones such as the washing machine, fridge, and dishwasher. 

Should you choose this option, be sure to have a professional, experienced, and fully certified plumber to come to your home and install your appliances safely and correctly, such as one from the renowned Beehive Plumbing.

Keep the Countertops Clear

Not only will keeping your countertops and kitchen table as clean and as clutter-free as possible make for a beautifully put-together aesthetic, it will also mean the food and drink safety and hygiene standards you want to maintain are always of the optimum. 

If you use the kitchen throughout the day and have small children (or a hungry spouse), who are always demanding snacks, invest in some extra storage to keep such non-perishable foodstuffs, such as wooden floating shelves above the countertops. 

Maximize the Floor Space

Another hugely beneficial point to bear in mind when planning the remodeling of your kitchen is to ensure the space can be easily traversed from end to end. 

Specifically, make sure that there is enough room between the kitchen cabinets and the island (if you choose to have one) in the middle of the room, and as a basic guide, remember that a normal pathway through a kitchen should measure at least thirty-six inches wide. 

Always consider traffic flow when working on the blueprint and floor plan, especially if you are someone who needs space and freedom when cooking and preparing meals. 

Focus on Smart Storage

Regardless of whether you have a large, sprawling kitchen space or a smaller and more intimate one, the sheer volume of products, appliances, and equipment—not to mention the food items themselves—means that you need to be smart when it comes to storage. 

When purchasing canisters for storing pasta and other dry foods and indeed, when walking up and down the supermarket aisles looking for cereals and other food that stays in the box they come in, consider the height of your average products and ensure the cabinets are designed in a way to suit your own individual cooking and consumer needs.
