Consider These Tips Before You Do Your New or Remodeled Kitchen
The kitchen is perhaps the most used space in your home. No matter how big the new TV is in the family room or how comfortable the living room couch, everyone seems to congregate in the kitchen at all hours of the day.

Consider the following things before your kitchen project, and leave the rest up to HomeStyling Design experts!
Facilitate Traffic Flow
Think about how hectic your kitchen can be at breakfast and dinnertime. Alleviate crowded counters with wide walkways and accessible cabinets. For a kid-friendly floor plan, keep stovetops and knife drawers out of high traffic areas.
Keep Open Space
It’s easy to get caught up with filling every nook and cranny in a remodel, but keep functionality in mind. You want at least two feet of counter space surrounding each appliance and the sink. Keep areas clear around the stovetop—imagine the logistics of cooking a large dinner with many utensils and ingredients in need of a temporary space.
Plug It In
Don’t forget about outlets when designating a backsplash. Make sure multiple outlets are installed throughout the kitchen in areas that will be accessible for your electronic appliances.
You want your kitchen to be beautiful, of course, but it is also a workspace for the cook in the household. Think about your daily routine in the kitchen and how you can eliminate wasted steps. For example, install cabinets to fit pots and pans close to the stovetop, and drawers for silverware near the plates and bowls. Clustering like items together will save trips back and fourth across the kitchen.
