One of the many other pros to kitchen remodeling is one that you might not necessarily have thought of before. Limit spending on the kitchen remodeling to about 15 - 20 percent of your home‘s value. According to the National Association of Home Builders, updating and remodeling your kitchen will add more value than any other improvement. Even if you plan on moving at some point after the remodel, don‘t forget that kitchen projects add more value to your home than any other improvement.
Appliances that tend to be used frequently are then free to stand on the surrounding work surfaces, brought onto the central island when they need to be used. Not everybody, however, is blessed with a kitchen large enough to accommodate a kitchen island. In smaller houses the galley kitchen is the norm and, again, the ‘working triangle‘ needs to be taken into account when implementing suitable kitchen decorating ideas. In most galley kitchens the hob is along one wall with the sink directly opposite and work surfaces either side of both hob and sink. This means the main working area is the triangle within the centre of the kitchen. In Western kitchens, regardless of the level of cooking skills the kitchen user has, each kitchen houses very similar appliances. There are certain items that are found in all kitchens, such as washing machine, fridge, cooker - either fitted or free-standing - sink unit and fitted cupboards with work surfaces built-in.
Painting and flooring: The walls and floors occupy a major part of any kitchen and because of their size, they will influence the appearance of your kitchen. This is why you have to give attention to the walls and floors. The best option is to replace the flooring but it is costly so opt to se laminate or vinyl flooring. They come in various patterns, colors, and designs. When you have a small kitchen, you should paint the walls in light colors to give an illusion of space.
Traffic: The kitchen should not be perceived as an island; it needs contact with the outside world that is accomplished by car. You can have the adjoining room used a garage attached to the kitchen or have the back door lead to the driveway, so you do not go through much hassle bringing in your groceries or taking out your trash. You can also have a mud room minimize the traffic within your kitchen since it acts as a staging area for trips out of and into the house. It creates storage for coats, boots, and hats, buffer from cold air, or you can put pantry shelves to hold items that are not meant for immediate use. Once all this activity is redirected from your kitchen, you will have more space for eating and cooking.
