Kitchen Lighting Solutions for Your Renovation

How can I get more natural light in my kitchen area?

Kitchen Makeovers Begin with the Perfect Design

Do kitchen makeovers require a lot of planning and designing?

Effective, efficient, high quality kitchen makeovers require taking a good hard look at your current kitchen situation. What are the qualities of your kitchen that you wish to retain? What works for you? What does not? How is the condition of your floors, walls, and ceiling? Is a window too big or too small? Are there too many doors? Too few? How is the lighting? What actually occurs in your kitchen area? Do you use it strictly to cook food, or do you dine there as well? Do you find your family and friends gathering there, or do you wish you had the space and welcoming atmosphere for them? Most modern kitchen makeovers are more than just a place to store and prepare food.Continue reading…

In the previous post we talked about some ways to stay on budget when buying the materials for a kitchen renovation. Now we need to step back and talk about the layout of the kitchen and how that affects your budget.

How do I know if my kitchen needs a different layout?

Have you found yourself having to move from one end of the kitchen to the other to get something in the middle of cooking a meal? When the kids are raiding the fridge, is there room for you? Is there more than one cook at a time in the kitchen and if so, do you step over each other to get to spices, cooking utensils, pots, pans, food, etc? Can you get your meal out of the oven easily or do you need to be a contortionist in order to get it out? If you open the dishwasher or oven, does something else, like the fridge, become inaccessible?Continue reading…
