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.
Another annoying factor can be light. This is to many of you who live in apartments that do not receive any shed of natural light, simply add more electrical lights. These lights should be able to make the kitchen feel much brighter. However they do not have to be always on the ceiling, instead they could be above the stove and near a couple of cupboards that do not really receive much light. As a general rule, I would not have any more than 3 separate switches for lightbulbs, this is for other people that may use the kitchen.
Another big mistake of kitchen interior design is installing an island that is just too big. Island countertops are a great addition to a kitchen but they should only be about thirty six to forty eight inches deep and about thirty six to one hundred and twenty inches wide. If you get into larger size islands they are just harder to use and a lot more work to clean.
