We all tend to take our kitchens for granted even though many of us find fault with them. When you have learnt to live with an oven that isn’t quite big enough or you want to heat more pans than you have hot plates for; we try to make the most of a poor situation.
Space VS Money
If you cannot afford the cooker you think you deserve then there isn’t much you can do about it. However, if you can easily afford the improvement; does your kitchen have sufficient space to accommodate it? Additionally, how well will it fit in with the rest of your kitchen?
Maybe, The Whole Kitchen Could Be Improved?
Apart from a few new minor appliances; it is quite possible that your kitchen is pretty much the same today as it was when you first moved in to the house. Maybe now is the time for you to give thought to improving the whole kitchen – and not just the new cooker and a lick of paint?
Cabinets And Work Surfaces
Appliances are essentially technical and perform specific functions; design aesthetics are somewhat secondary. However, in order to store, prepare and cook food; you do need well thought out cabinets and work surfaces and it is here that creative ideas can not only improve the functionality of your kitchen; but, can also work wonders on the aesthetics. Colour schemes, textures and the way each individual unit fits into the whole kitchen concept all need to be thought about.
If you are used to having to move cans around on a shelf so that you can get at the one you need (because, invariably, the one you want will be behind ones you do not want); are you aware of the huge amount of neat storage aids that are now available for placing inside cabinets to organise both storage and removal? If you currently have old fashioned cupboards; be creative when improving these to custom designed cabinets by checking out all available internal aids.
What Do You Do In Your Kitchen?
If all you do is cook and wash the dishes; a fairly utilitarian, functional kitchen will suit you but would it not be more pleasant if it was also a cosy place in which to work? Moreover, the kitchen today is seen as much more than a purely functional place; thus, space permitting, most of us like to eat meals and entertain friends in our kitchens. Creative ideas for improving the overall appearance take on a more important aspect the more people who get to see our kitchens.
