Every weekend, especially around the summer, many owners put up their house for sale near your area. You can visit these homes when they are open for viewing. You can dash straight into the kitchen and take notes of the layouts or floor plans you like. This is a chance to see what other people’s kitchens look like. Be sure to look at such things as cabinetry, proximity of the stove, sink and refrigerator, countertops and flooring. You should be able to get a feel of what your neighborhood has by visiting several of these open homes. Naturally, the quality will vary in each home you visit, but you will get a firsthand look that will help you find the features or the styles most appealing to you.
If you are in an apartment or small house, or just have a limited amount of space in your kitchen, it is a good idea to visit a kitchen showroom to get some ideas about what might work for you. There are innovations such as rollaway work benches, multi hinged doors and so on that will help you maximise the space that you have available in your small kitchen.
Shade Sails and Covers: It is important to protect your appliances and furniture from the weather and potentially harsh elements. If you live in an extreme climate, consider the kind of protection you want to use for your outdoor kitchen. You can build awnings to shade the patio area or you can build a structure, like an arbor or pergola. Basically, this has a sturdy roof and side pillars. You can also install weather-resistant curtains to the side pillars that you can pull closed to act as walls if you’d like some privacy in your patio.
Where you want your pots, pans and other cooking wares are going to need to be accounted for right away. If you have a small kitchen, consider using the walls for storage. You can erect a beautiful spice rack with some designer jars to get your spices out of the cabinets. Do you have nice looking pots? Put a rack mounted on the ceiling. Ever seen a copper pot hanging from the ceiling? They look great.
Think logically. What things from your existing kitchen are you planning to keep? What are you going to throw away? What will need replacing? What can be refurbished and re-used? All of these questions can give you a headache so make lists of what you’re throwing away and what you need to buy. That way you’re always in control and won't end up with two of anything. When deciding what new furniture and appliances to invest in start by listing what you need and then move on to what you want. Fitting in the necessities should always be your priority.
