Kitchen design basics mean more than flooring, cabinets, and countertops. Lighting can make a big difference in the kitchen, whether it`s bright lighting for a long day of cooking or soft, dim mood lighting for a romantic night at home. For the best effect, install lighting on multiple levels, such as under-cabinet lights, pendants, and recessed lights in the ceiling. Additionally, a kitchen needs plenty of electrical outlets, particularly along the backsplash. Building code includes specific requirements for outlets and lighting in remodeled kitchens.
Finally, if you choose to replace your cabinets entirely or if you`re installing brand-new ones, consider buying them completely unfinished, in a "bare wood" state, and then finishing them with stain or paint yourself. You`ll save money up front this way, as opposed to paying for finished or semi-finished cabinets.
Before you take the plunge and embark on a kitchen remodel, think about what your dream kitchen looks like. Even if your budget does not extend to a total gut job, you can incorporate simple design tweaks that rearrange the space based on how you use it.
