One of these mistakes in kitchen interior design is not taking advantage of the storage spaces in the kitchen. There should be approximately forty-eight to seventy-two inches of cabinets for dishes and glasses above your sink and dishwasher for convenience. There should be approximately forty-eight to seventy-two inches of cabinet space near your oven for holding the cooking dishes and supplies. Floor cabinets or base cabinets should be placed near the stovetop for pots and pans.
Many new homeowners are overwhelmed with excitement and joy at the thought of moving into their first house. Now that is the house is officially theirs, they are free to make as many changes that they want to make. So instead of that cast iron sink and boring counter, you can put in one made of soapstone to go along with a new soapstone counter.
There are lots of minor things you can do to improve a kitchen that's not terribly friendly to work in. Simply moving the appliances or changing the way you store things can be a big help. Consider taking the doors off the cabinets and leaving them open. You'll be surprised by how much it opens up a room. A new coat of paint can change how open or closed in the kitchen feels, as can choosing to move some items to a pantry or other storage area instead of leaving them in the kitchen proper.
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.
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.
