Redesigning a home is all about inventing creative solutions to age-old problems. No matter if you’ve lived in your home for 30 years or are preparing to move in, change is always possible. The most difficult part about creating brilliant home design is imagining something that is radically different from what meets the eye.
Kitchens can be one of the more difficult spaces to rethink, as well as the most problematic to work with. Often times the kitchens we are afforded do not provide us with adequate cabinet space or the walls simply get in the way. If you’re working with a smaller kitchen, it can be difficult to imagine a world outside of those four walls that confine you. Here are just a few tips for getting more out of your home design, however you choose to create it.
Glass cabinets are a great way to make a small space look bigger. Redesigning a smaller kitchen with glass cabinets allows more light to reach through, making the space seem bigger and brighter. It also makes searching for plates, cups and utensils that much easier.
Creating good storage in inconspicuous places is another great way to not upset the flow of your home design. We have stuff and we can’t help it. However what we can help is how we store it, and thus how it feels on a daily basis.
Being able to have all your kitchen tools at your fingertips is important. Just as important is making sure that your kitchen doesn’t feel cluttered with stuff. Choosing the right wood finishes to match in lightness with the walls is another great way to streamline your cabinetry and give your kitchen a lighter, cleaner feel.
