Kitchen Home Renovation
The most important factor to consider when planning a kitchen home renovation Brisbane is the budget. How much money do you have and how much of it are you willing to spend on the renovation? The reason for this is that money controls the kind of material you can afford, the renovation company to choose and other items.
Without the consideration of how much to spend, you may end up draining your savings in order to finish the renovation. This can have a big impact on finishing the job, or else leave your kitchen an unusable mess.
Of course, money is not the only thing to consider. There are many factors involved, but money should be the first thing to think about. Your needs come next.
A well-designed kitchen would make life a lot more fun and organised, so when you remodel the kitchen, please consider the following factors.
The layout should be based on the sequence of cooking: taking out the meat from the fridge, washing the food, cutting and processing and cooking. It’s only when designed according to the workflow that it makes your food preparation work more efficient.
Generally, kitchens are in L shape, U shape, 1 shape and double 1 shape. The layout should be based on how big your kitchen is and how many items you have.
1） 1 shape: Everything could be done in 1 straight line. It’s space-saving and minimalist.
2） L Shape: Tends to be the most popular layout. It works well in limited spaces.
3）U Shape: It makes full use of the corners for cupboard space.
4）Double 1 shape: both sides of the kitchen are symmetrical. It’s good for big kitchens where space isn’t limited.
Cabinets are made of wall cabinets, base cabinets and benchtops. When designing the cabinets, the height of the person who uses the cabinet should be taken into consideration.
Benchtop: There are many materials available for benchtop but granite is of the best value for money.
Base Cabinets: They consist of insert spaces for a dishwasher, sink and oven/stove etc.
Wall Cabinets: The height of the wall cabinets is important, which is depending on the person who uses them. It’s better to use a side-hinged door than an overturned door.
It’s almost necessary to have lights under the wall cabinets but isn’t essential to the overall functionality of the kitchen.
