10 Expert Tips for Remodeling Your Kitchen in Chicago

 

Spending time in the kitchen doesn’t have to be frustrating and stressful. There are ways to make your kitchen work the way you want it. If you’re preparing a makeover for your kitchen, here are some tips that will help your project go smoothly.

  1. Use Proper Lighting: Proper lighting needs to be placed with purpose in your kitchen. Think carefully about the area you want to brighten up in the kitchen. Choose a mixture of spotlights, ceiling lights, and even wall lamps.
  2. Have a Place to Multi-task: Plan to maximize any amount of space you have regardless of the size. Many people have a separate area in the kitchen as a secondary or study space. If you have a little corner in your kitchen area, make good use of that space by giving it another job.
  3. Showcase Your Glassware: Empty or open cabinets spaces make great places to showcase your elegant dishes and glassware. Install glass doors in your cabinets or built-in shelves to protect your fine china and glasses. You can even build joining wine racks that hold both wine bottles and your glassware.
  4. Add Color: Bright colors are inviting in any room, especially in the kitchen. Use bright colors if you want to make your kitchen pop. Display these colors through your island, fixtures, or chairs if you’re ready to showcase them on the walls.
  5. Consider a Backsplash: Backsplashes serve as more than a creative accent. Installing a backsplash above your stove keeps your walls free from messy cooking. You can choose from many options as well.
  6. Choose Timeless Styles: Choose themes and elements for your kitchen that are classic and timeless. Deep sinks and marble countertops are popular and modern. They can easily be paired with any type of accent.
  7. Keep Cookware Handy: Your cookware should hang nearby especially if you do a lot of cooking. Many modern kitchens have hanging pot racks above the island or stove. Pull out drawers in your cabinets also make a great place for quick access.
  8. Charming Window Accents: Make your kitchen warm and friendly with the right window accents. Smaller windows benefit well from soft colored curtains or blinds. Always choose a fabric that you can easily wash.
  9. Lazy Susans are Helpful: The small turntables are very helpful for organizing in the kitchen. You can set these on the counter, next to the stove, or even in the refrigerator. This way, you will always have your items close by when you need them.
  10. Obey the Triangle: The golden triangle is the idea that everything you need is right within reach. For example, if you do a lot of cooking, place your main tools right around the stove. Remodel and organize your kitchen with this idea in mind. You would, for example, be able to easily move from the three primary food prep areas – the stove, the fridge, and the sink – with ease if you’ve followed the golden triangle rule.
