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 decided to open up the kitchen - that it would only have two walls with an island that was filled with drawers - big drawers with heavy file cabinet drawer slides (The things that filing drawers use to pull in and out smoothly while supporting the heavy load of paper, files and books.) They can support over 100 pounds each and we thought they would work fine to support drawers that held large stand mixers, iron pots and pans as well as dishes. We built drawers that were tall enough to hold big bowls and other tall things that are used in the kitchen. We also made drawers that were deep enough to hold baking pans and all sorts of things for cooking. There were even spice drawers with angled racks in the drawer so the labels could be easily read.
We looked and planned the movements around the kitchen, what we wanted to do with the space and how we wanted the kitchen to function. So, one week, we ordered a 40 yard dumpster to be delivered to the house. We knew about these as when we moved in, we had filled five of these babies with junk from inside the house as well as the yard. We checked with each other hoping that we were really sane, picked up sledge hammers and started on the walls. What fun it was, tearing away what had become a kitchen that we did not like and could not stand.
Aside from redesigning cabinets and countertops to get more space, appliances should all be placed in one corner of the kitchen such as the fridge, microwave, sink and stove. This way you would not need to move across the kitchen when cooking plus it organizes appliances at one corner or side of the kitchen for ease of movement plus more space.
The most intriguing challenge that haunts an interior designer while setting up the design of a modern kitchen is space management. Unlike the yester years, not many of the modern families stay in bungalows or family mansions which have all the space in the world to utilize. Majority of the modern apartments, especially in urban Indian cities are pigeon's holes and space management is the key to fine living. You will find a lot of space-saving furniture which are especially deigned keeping in mind these modern apartments and in kitchens too, things are no different. The interior design ideas for modern kitchen are based on this concept and the designers are coming up with innovative ideas that not only saves space but enable you to fit in as many items in as minimal space as possible.
