When it comes to planning a kitchen renovation these days, it can be difficult to ignore the trends and fads. Home improvement shows are extremely popular on TV networks and streaming platforms, and DIY home improvement books are easy to find on the shelves of any bookstore. Add thousands of Internet articles about the best kitchen renovation tactics, and it can be challenging to plan a kitchen renovation that is truly you.
At Balnei & Colina, we make you the focus. When you come to us for a kitchen renovation in North Sydney, our number one priority is to provide a service that makes sense based on how you use your kitchen. The kitchens you can read about in books or see on TV shows look gorgeous, but if you were to port one of them into your home magically, would it be functional? We want to deliver a renovation solution that not only looks fantastic, but that also provides unbeatable function for you and your family.
Crafting Function: The Process of Setting up a Logical, Functional Kitchen
Do you want to be able to converse with guests in the family room while you are preparing a meal? If so, then you probably want an open concept kitchen. Do you like the idea of having multiple different counter segments or ‘stations’ throughout your kitchen, or would you rather have a large space to work? Do you want an island, or would you rather have a dine-in kitchen with space to put a dining table?
These questions are just a few of the things you will want to ask yourself as you start thinking about your kitchen renovation in North Sydney. Often, homeowners focus on items such as the appliances they want, the fixtures they like, or the kind of countertops they picture having in their kitchen. While these factors are undoubtedly important, they are only a part of the equation. Thinking seriously and deeply about how you use the kitchen—or how you would like to use the kitchen—is vital for ensuring that you end up with a renovation you love.
Another smart step to take is to make a list of all the stuff you own that will have its home in the kitchen. Silverware, dishes, countertop appliances, glassware, spices, pots and pans: you will need somewhere to put or store each of these items. Not only do you need to make sure you are giving yourself enough drawer and cabinet space to accommodate everything, but you also want to think about the flow of your kitchen. Picturing your cooking process, how can you minimise the number of unnecessary steps you need to take? Having a mental map of where everything should go will help simplify your kitchen renovation greatly.
