Galley kitchen, though the most economical, is also the most crumpled of all kitchen floor layouts. It includes kitchen set up along the two parallel walls in the kitchen, with a narrow space in between. All the appliances, counters, and kitchen cabinets are arranged along the two parallel walls of the kitchen. This type of layout is suitable for kitchens with a single cook.
The number and size of appliances have increased manifold since 1950. Thus, the classic triangle design may not work for the modern kitchens of today, that flaunt sophisticated appliances. Hence, the idea of zone centered design came into practice. The concept of this layout design is based on division of kitchen into several zones, based on the activity. Meaning, the appliances are arranged in the order of their utility. Any modern kitchen can be primarily divided into main zones such as cooking, cleaning, baking, eating, storing, etc. This way, you can find whatever you need for a single activity at one place only. Not only this will reduce the time taken for fetching things and making trips within the kitchen, it will also keep your kitchen more organized and clutter free.
No kitchen remodeling is complete until you replace your old kitchen countertop with new ones. Choose inexpensive countertop material like laminate and tile instead of costly countertop materials like solid stone slab and quartz surfacing countertop. You can also choose ceramic tile countertop as they are inexpensive and comes in a variety of styles and designs. However, they are very time-consuming to install. Laminate countertops are one of the cheapest option and they are durable and available in a wide range of patterns and textures.
These were some inexpensive kitchen remodeling ideas that you can use for your home. If you have money left over from your allocated budget, then install a new sink and a new backsplash. You can also change the kitchen window treatment at a very low cost. Updating a kitchen on a budget is very much possible if you plan carefully.
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.
While you start working on the colors, you need to take into consideration a lot of elements. Starting with the kitchen cabinets, you also need to think about the shelves, island, and dining table. Cabinets occupy a major area of the room, hence matching colors with these is a must for right decor. You can have the cabinets painted in dual colors, both or one of these matching with the shades used for the walls. The dining tables and chairs (if you already have this set) also need to go well with the walls. Next, the tiles must be in shades that match with the paint for kitchens.
