While kitchen facilities could be nightmarish efficiently, it cannot be denied that it’s the focal point of the home. This common ground deserves all of the attention and the cost. A wise investment, aside from the style factor that’s so important nowadays, the utilities play a substantial role.
It is important to be clear about what is expected from the new kitchen. Perhaps the design of the old kitchen has been limited. Smart space utility would turn it around. Structural alterations may be required. If needed, a window and door might need to be bricked up if they are getting in the way. Plan the locations of the cooking range, worktop and the ground storage components, the sink and the overhead shelves. Size matters for sure and the older homes traditionally have smaller kitchen spaces, possibly 4 m X 3 m. It would be a test of imagination to determine what goes where.
Sketch a detailed floor plan to scale to picture what the arrangements would look like. What style would be feasible? Ventilation is crucial and lighting too. By bricking up the windows and door, I now got two full walls. French doors would lead into the back garden.
Budget reasons made us decide that the plumbing expense could be reduced by keeping the worktop and sink at precisely the identical position. The fridge would stay where it was and the possibility was of more cabinets and working space with the two walls. A breakfast bar would also function as a table. The sketch being ready, the work could commence.
Installing the cabinets
Along with the plumber, the electrician and plasterer did their work. I was busy planning the cupboard positions. DIY expertise does help.
At the end of the sink are the breakfast bar in an L shape with two stools. Extra space came in the washing machine which was now in the restroom.
Cupboards went alongside the cooking range on the wall and floor, under the sink and above the sink. Frying pans, sauce pans and oven dishes need to be conveniently near the cooking area.
A sense of the outdoors
Along with the French doors leading to the backyard, an awning would create greater space size and fuse the outer and inner ambiances.
