So you know that your kitchen is in dire need of a renovation, but you are not too sure what direction you should go in for your remodel? It is definitely a big decision and one that should not be taken lightly. Many homeowners are initially unsure of their ideas. And we would know as we have renovated dozens of kitchens in Christchurch!
In this article, we’ll give you some advice for refining your ideas before renovating your kitchen to end up with the best possible result!
Create A List Of Must-Haves
Even if you’re not entirely sure what to do with your kitchen renovation, you undoubtedly have a list of things you want your kitchen to have, such as new cabinets, more space, etc. Try writing a list of these features in order of priority.
Create A List Of Dislikes
It’s sometimes easier to pinpoint what you dislike over what you like. Determine all of the features in your kitchen that you dislike and general features that are often seen in kitchens that do not appeal to you.
Don’t Rely Too Heavily On Trends
When homeowners aren’t sure about what to do with their renovation, they often rely too heavily on the latest trends. The problem with this is that trends go in and out of fashion fairly quickly, and you want to enjoy your kitchen for many years to come.
Having imagery is an essential tool for communicating your ideas to your kitchen designer. Use sites like Pinterest as well as lifestyle magazines to find images that appeal to you.
How Do You Want Your Kitchen To Feel?
Think of the adjectives that you want to be able to use to describe your kitchen. For example, do you want it to be cosy, inviting, modern, artistic, grand, unassuming, or anything else? Also, think about the feelings you want to experience when walking into it.
Decide On A Colour Scheme
A colour scheme really ties an entire room together. So when thinking about a potential colour scheme, consider colours that appeal to you, that are cohesive together, and that may already appear in other areas of your home.
