There are basically two designs in which the kitchen can be laid out. The first is called the ’classic triangle design’ and the second is ’zone centered design’. The classic triangle design was proposed way back in 1950s, hence has become somewhat obsolete now. It revolves around three stations, the range, refrigerator, and the kitchen sink. The placement of these stations often results in a triangle, referred to as ’work triangle’. The idea behind this design is to arrange the three stations in such a way that the working area in the kitchen is optimized. Ideally, the space at the center of the triangle should be free, thus, you will have to place kitchen island out of this triangle. If you place the island at the center, you will have to do a lot of extra walking, moreover, taking a detour around the island can be quite tedious with hands full of dishes or pots and pans. Occasionally, it is alright to overlap the island along the edge of the triangle.
If you are thinking of kitchen remodeling, then Tuscan theme is a good choice. Tuscan kitchens imitate nature and colors like green, brown, yellow and red are used on walls. Use a stucco texture to get this theme, and opt for curtains which are light-colored or have striped or checked pattern on them. You can place wall tiles in front of the sink which have floral designs on them, and hang copper vessels for display. Add some wooden kitchen furniture, and for finishing touch place a large-sized copper pot on the table.
A kitchen is the busiest area in house, always bustling with activities. Unfortunately, it is also one of the most cluttered and space challenged areas in the house. The cabinets, counter tops, shelves, pots, and pans, and a range of kitchen appliances crumpled together in a small space makes cooking a daunting task. However, if you apply some architectural principles to your kitchen and effectively utilize the available space, you can turn this daunting task into a pleasurable experience.
Kitchen layout design ideas are primarily dependent on the layout of the kitchen floor. Most of the kitchens are designed according to any of the following layout plans.
One of the best ideas for inexpensive kitchen remodeling is to update your existing kitchen cabinets by using paint, molding and new hardware instead of installing new ones. The cost of installing brand new kitchen cabinets is exorbitant, and when you are on a budget it is best to make the best of what you have got. Painting the kitchen cabinets in a color that complements the wall color of the kitchen is a great idea to jazz them up. You can even consider staining or pickling the wooden kitchen cabinets for a fresh look. Install new hardware like kitchen cabinet pulls and knobs. These types of installation do not cost much and you can do it yourself over the weekend.
There are certain colors which can stand out and make the cabinets look less prominent. These are mostly bright colors. These colors need to be selected wisely, otherwise they can look too loud. The best is to go with medium or medium-light shades of such color. Some of the colors which will make the wall look more prominent than the kitchen are sunshine yellow, bright green, orange, red, and turquoise blue.
