Top Mistakes To Avoid In Renovating Your Kitchen
If you’re planning on giving your kitchen a makeover, then there’s lots of decision to make, from finding the best kitchen taps in the UK to sourcing a worktop that complements the design. Better Homes and Gardens list their top mistakes to avoid when remodelling your kitchen space.
Don’t leave picking out your splash back until last, as you’ll need to consider the kind of finish and how much space on the wall it will take up. In making this decision early, you’ll then be able to accurately work out the size of wall hung units you want. A top tip when picking out units is to extend all the way to the ceiling as this will provide much needed extra storage and give the feeling of a higher ceiling in the room.
At the time, it might seem like a great idea to go for colourful kitchen cabinets, but in doing so it may look outdated sooner than a palette that is more neutral. A safer bet with all cabinets is to go for a classic colour and then if you want to add in colour do so with accessories such as lights, stools and appliances which will be easy to update in the future.
There’s a wide variety of kitchen work tops and though natural stone choices do look amazing, they can be a hassle to keep clean and prevent stains. If you want something that’s going to be hard wearing then opt for a granite or laminate.
