Often, when people decide to renovate their kitchen, they think it’s as simple as selecting new cabinets and appliances. However, as Dubai’s leading fit out company, we know that creating a well-designed kitchen is a process that requires an expert’s touch. To help you on your way, we’ve put together some of our top renovation tips:
Consider the entire room
Just like when you’re renovating any room in your house, it’s important to consider the room as a whole concept. Although the cabinets and appliances might be the obvious place to start, it’s important that you take note of flooring, lighting, the backsplash and countertops. Striking a balance between a good looking and practical kitchen comes down to creating synergy with each element.
The style of kitchen
When it comes to food, we’re all different. While some love to flex their culinary flair, others prefer to leave dinner in the capable hands of a maid or handy mobile app. That’s why it’s important to consider your eating habits when creating your kitchen. (Read about the three-types of kitchen and which one to pick depending on your eating habits here) Instead of visiting a showroom, we recommend working with an interior designer who will get to know your family’s needs before designing the space.
Create a seamless flow
Engineering a sense of cohesion with the rest of your home helps in giving your kitchen wow-factor. There are many ways to create a flow in the kitchen. We always advise people to look at the layout of their home and decide whether there is a better placement for the kitchen. It’s also important to stick within the style that runs throughout, a modern kitchen will look out of place in an older style property. And if you’ve got an open plan living space, we recommend avoiding bulky wall mounted cabinets that will distract from the room.
Make it ergonomic
When you’re in the flow state of cooking a big meal, you want your kitchen to work for you. At Smart Renovations we’re all about ergonomic design. A well-designed kitchen is achieved by noticing the small details. For example, having a touch to open cabinet with your all your spices beside the stove is going to make cooking a more seamless experience.
