It is important to think about many aspects when settling on a kitchen design for your remodel. You most likely have a ton of kitchen ideas, but you focus on creating an efficient design. In addition to making cooking easier, a well-designed kitchen also makes cleaning up, entertaining and eating easier. When Quest Interiors designs kitchens for our clients, we make sure to keep the following in mind:
Kitchen Storage SpaceWhen it comes to storing all your kitchenware, making sure you have ample cabinet space is vital. A great way to think about this is making sure you have a spot for all of your cookware such as pots, pans, utensils, accessories, and any small appliances that will be tucked away. While open shelving is all the rage right now, if you want to include it, make sure not to fill it with clutter. Spices are always a great option to showcase on an open shelf. Quest Interiors will always double-check any design to make sure your custom cabinetry will provide you extra kitchen storage with easy access to all of your cabinet drawers and doors.
CountertopsWhen it comes to your countertop, there are plenty of options to choose from. However, countertops play a huge role in the functionality of your kitchen. In fact, most homeowners don't weigh the options of all the different types of countertop material. Quest Interior's favorite type of countertop is quartz. Quartz is highly durable and non-porous. As for granite, it is porous, which means your countertops can stain if they are not properly sealed.
Placement of AppliancesIf you plan on rearranging where your appliances are in your current kitchen during your kitchen remodel, there are a few things that you may want to keep in mind. Make sure that you are planning to move any outlets or hookups if you are moving your refrigerator, oven, stove, or dishwasher. You will also have to make sure to have the proper vent hood installed over your stove. You will also want to make sure that there is enough space for all of these large appliances to open and close without interfering with any of your other cabinet doors or drawers, or blocking a walkway.
