Whether your kitchen measures 100 square feet, the benchmark size noted by most cabinet manufacturers, or 440 square feet, the higher end of a kitchen size in a new build, certain kitchen design basics hold true.
Many stock cabinet showrooms allow you to pick custom stock cabinets that can work in the footprint of your kitchen. As with custom cabinets, you are able to choose from a range of standard features to customize your cabinet look. Stock cabinet doors come in many different styles: flat, raised, paneled, and Shaker are common examples. This variety allows you to create a traditional or modern kitchen, or whichever variant in between fits best with your style aesthetic.
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.
