Are you remodeling a new kitchen? If yes, you should take a look at the pictures of new kitchens below. They provide you with clear clues of how to remodel a new kitchen to make it functional and comfortable to use.
Make your steps efficient.
When you are working in your kitchen, you will move a lot, so make sure that your movement and every step you take is necessary and efficient. The most important traffic would be the one between your kitchen work triangle: your refrigerator, stove and sink. Be sure that this traffic is short enough and unobstructed. Obstruction is effectively eliminated if there is 36 to 48 feet of empty space for you to walk from one spot to another. You can also make your kitchen traffic more efficient by putting certain objects near the place where they are processed or used. Cereals and breakfast foods should be placed near breakfast table and napkins should be mounted on a spot on the wall near your sink or countertop. With fewer steps, you will be tired longer and you can make your kitchen jobs more efficient and faster to accomplish. Look into pictures of new kitchens with excellent traffic if you need some references.
Know how to deal with corners.
Your kitchen corners are excellent design assets that you can exploit to gain design benefits; however, if you use them improperly, they may cause problem. In a small kitchen corners can be used for storage purpose, installing L or U-shaped countertops, or putting decorations. There are many pictures of new kitchens that give you clues of how to use kitchen’s corners properly. If you want to install something solid at your kitchen’s corners, be sure that it doesn’t cause obstruction or problem for the kitchen’s other elements. If it blocks the swinging movement of your kitchen’s door, for instance, installing it may not be a good idea and leaving the corner empty might be considered better.
Decide whether to install a kitchen island.
A kitchen island can be a good—sometimes necessary—addition to your kitchen. If your kitchen lacks necessary countertop space, installing a kitchen island is considered necessary. A kitchen island may include built-in storage that will greatly improve the storage capacity of your kitchen. However, there are scenarios where installing a kitchen island can be a bad idea. If your kitchen is so small that it cannot afford a bulky kitchen island, you may forget about using kitchen island or use portable island with caster wheels. Inspect the layout of your kitchen and observe all pictures of new kitchens with kitchen island in them to decide whether installing a kitchen island is a good idea.
