remodelling kitchen ideas? Fortunately, when it comes to updating your kitchen, Glasgow builders CP Builders and Joiners have the answer. From creating a stylish but functional space to maximising the space on offer, we can help you make the best decisions for your kitchen remodel. First, you need to make some important considerations, which are outlined below, this will help you to make the best decisions for your kitchen remodel.
Function Over Style
While style doesn’t mean you forfeit style, it just means that you need to prioritise the function of your kitchen over the way it looks. It can be all too easy to just shove appliances in where they look good, but when it comes to using them, is this really functional? Creating a functional space can be stylish, you just need to take the time to ensure that you make the right decisions from the beginning. When it comes to creating a functional, but stylish, kitchen consider breaking the kitchen down into zones. For example, you may wish to keep the sink, dishwasher and bins close to each other to create a “clean up zone”. You should also consider creating a “cooking zone”, grouping together your cooker and oven alongside storage for all your pots, pans and cooking trays. By creating functional zones, you will almost certainly find that you have naturally created a stylish kitchen.
Additionally, these zones should be placed logically to ensure that you are not having to run all around your kitchen to complete simple tasks. For example, the food preparation zone should be close to your cooking zone. This will ensure that you use the space efficiently and functionally.
Maximising the Space
When searching for remodelling kitchen ideas, you need to consider how you can best maximise the space on offer. First, you need to consider if you have enough space, if you do, then great! If not, you may wish to consider how you can increase the size of your kitchen. You may wish to consider the likes of a garage conversion, extension or even knocking down a wall to open up the space. These are all great options if you are looking to create a larger kitchen in your home.
Once you are happy with the size of your kitchen you can start to think about how to best use the space. Even the smallest of kitchens can become luxurious with clever planning. However, you do need to take time to prioritise kitchen essentials and creating zones, this will ensure that you make the most of the available space. In larger kitchen spaces, there is more room to play around with. You may wish to add an island or a breakfast bar, or a family dining/relaxing area. Whatever the size of your kitchen, the expert team at CP Builders and Joiners can advise you of the best options for your home, ensuring that you make the most of your kitchen space.
No matter your budget, you should always consider your priorities, this will ensure that you spend money on areas you truly care about, creating a space you will love for years to come. For example, if no one in your household is a keen chef, a top of the range cooker and oven should not be your priority. Instead, you may wish to focus your budget on creating a social kitchen space. This may include a drinks fridge, an extra dishwasher or a gorgeous breakfast bar. By focusing your budget on the areas of the kitchen that matter to you, you will create a space which is special and perfect for you. While you will also require the kitchen basics, you can scale down your budget for areas that are less important for you. Our team can help advise you of the options which best suit you, ensuring that your budget is focused on the areas you truly care about.
