Design your Dream Kitchen
When designing your dream kitchen there are a few aspects to take into account. The ultimate kitchen will consist of both countertops and storage space, and the placement of appliances, cabinets, faucets, sinks, and flooring must be carefully planned. A good rule to follow when considering the layout is to place the most used appliances on the shortest walls. This will give maximum usage of countertop and storage space while also minimizing the need for rearranging or moving equipment around. Since appliances and cabinets take up the largest amount of space, make sure that you plan to make maximum use of the space available, but do so in a way that does not clutter the area. A countertop with a sliding door or a hinged door is excellent for efficiently providing more storage space while keeping stored items out of sight and out of mind.
Get creative: Many people choose not to buy contemporary appliances for a traditional themed kitchen. If you are working on a tight budget, you can still create your dream custom-made kitchen by combining some classic touches with modern twists. For example, a granite countertop can blend perfectly with a stainless steel tub and shower, or a traditional wood cabinet can be enhanced by a glass top refrigerator. If you find that your cabinets are taking up too much room, why not consider repainting some of them, or removing them altogether, to free up additional space?
Take vintage inspiration seriously: Vintage Kitchen appliances, such as stoves, refrigerators, dishwashers, and ovens, often come with beautiful handcrafted handles. On the same level, modern appliances have a sleek, futuristic look to them. Using these classic kitchen appliances in a modern-themed kitchen can lend a stunning appearance. Just remember that while you can get a great looking design out of antique appliances, they may not hold up to the heat as well as their modern counterparts. However, with the proper care, your antique cast iron appliances will last a lifetime.
