Whether you do it yourself or hire a designer for your kitchen interior design, careful planning is needed to achieve the effect you are looking for in the design. If doing it yourself you must be aware of some of the biggest mistakes made by homeowners when re-designing their kitchen.
We had the contractors start the parade - looking at the layout of the kitchen and the cabinet construction, the overall construction of the house and the kitchen in particular. The bids came in - slowly at first and then in a deluge. The prices were astounding. This was in the early 1980's and the low bid was $12,000, and that was for a new sink, paint and "new cabinet facings" (new doors on the existing cabinets!) Now the house was not inexpensive, but these prices were out of sight! Times were much like today, many people out of work and contracts were few and far between.
Think about color schemes and room size. Spend some time looking through home magazines and online sites to see what kinds of options you have. Many people are being a lot more creative when it comes to the way their kitchen's interior is laid out. Remember that what looks great in a showroom kitchen won't necessarily work in yours, though. You need to think about the amount of space you have and the limitations your existing kitchen comes with, unless you're willing to settle for a complete rebuild.
One other big mistake that we will focus on is not enough light in the kitchen. Appropriate lighting for your kitchen workspaces would include halogen or fluorescent lighting. Not enough light in the kitchen will make it difficult to do your daily tasks. Kitchen interior designers insist that proper ventilation be added to ensure that offending odors and excess heat is removed from the home. Many do it yourself kitchen re-modelers neglect this important aspect of kitchen design.
First, start thinking about what your kitchen should be. Is it simply a place to cook, or will friends and family be helping you or being entertained in the kitchen? Do you cook a lot, or is your culinary skill mostly limited to heating up something from a box? How much counter space do you like to have? This kind of information will tell you how much of a remodel you're going to need to do in order to get the kitchen that's right for you. If all new counters must be installed, or different appliances are required, that'll be a bigger, more complex, and more expensive project than a simple redecoration.
