The kitchen is one of those areas in our homes which is used non-stop. No matter how much you try and clean it and keep it managed, there will be something left out, every time. And at times, we don’t realize that the items we are cleaning might need replacement. So, stop your work and take a good look at all the things that require replacement and renovate your kitchen. But do keep in mind whether you want to renovate your kitchen with the basic set up or you want to upgrade it with the features of a modular kitchen.
Here are a few points to remember while renovating your kitchen:
- CHECKLIST OF ITEMS THAT NEED REWORK
Kitchen remodeling does not mean that you take down your entire setup and rebuild it from scratch. If your budget allows that, then you should go for it. Otherwise, create a checklist of items that need reworking or replacement. After many years of functioning, generally kitchen sink, cabinets, stove, floor, countertop and most of the cookware’s needs to be replaced. So, as per the checklist, fix a budget and get on with the beautification of your kitchen.
- CHOOSE RIGHT ACCESSORIES FOR YOUR KITCHEN TYPE
Most of the Indian kitchens are quite small in size (almost half the size of the average bedroom). But, if you have sufficient space left after you have replaced the necessary items, then you should look for accessories that go well with your kitchen style. Like kitchen lighting (under cabinet/flush-mounted ceiling lights), gooseneck faucet, garbage bins (both, for liquid as well as solid waste), backsplash, wall hangings etc. among other items.
- KEEP THE SAME FOOTPRINT
Unless you’re rebuilding your kitchen, keep the location of faucets, plumbing pipes, stove counter, electronic outlets etc. at the same place. Nothing will shoot up your remodeling budget than just changing the location of these things.
- BE QUALITY CONSCIOUS
The purpose to remodel the kitchen is to make it more efficient for your daily use. So, choose products which might be a little expensive but will provide great ROI in the long term like a new stove, countertops, floor tiles, new juicer mixer among other things.
- NUMBER OF APPLIANCES
Appliances are mainly for the purpose of cooking and storing food and food items. A double-door refrigerator, 6-burner gas stove, juicer mixer, dough maker etc. are things required only if you have a large family and you cook regularly. Remodeling of your kitchen should be about its design and functionality and not about the number of appliances you have in it.
Your remodeled kitchen will stay like that for a very long time, so, plan carefully and smartly before starting the renovation. Use these tips for a budgeted remodeling solution for your kitchen.
