As 2020 now comes to a close, many of us are thinking about what the New Year will bring, perhaps making another set of New Years Resolutions which may or may not actually come to fruition. But most of all, about making a fresh start particularly when it comes to our homes.
At Kitchen Craft, we recommend a New Years Kitchen Renovation!
For nearly 50 years, Kitchen Craft has been helping homeowners make their new kitchen dreams come true with a vast selection of kitchen cabinet doorstyles, unique finish colours, durable and beautiful wood species and more functional kitchen storage solutions than you can ‘shake a candy cane at’.
In this article, we’re going to explore all of these characteristics, while giving you a new kitchen wish list to help you get your new dream kitchen off the ground. Ready? Let’s go!
Your New Kitchen Wish List
To get you started on your new kitchen wish list, here are a few of the main considerations to keep in mind when you’re in the dreaming/planning stages:
- Cooking in your new kitchen – making it work for your situation
- The style of your new kitchen – creating a kitchen you’ll love
- New kitchen organization – adding function to the fashion
- Those little ‘extras’ – features that make it uniquely YOU
Keeping all of these points in-mind will help you to develop a new kitchen wish list that you are happy with, and also allow your Kitchen Craft Experienced Designer to better understand the overall look and feel that you’re ultimately going for.
What Type and How Much Cooking will be Done in Your New Kitchen?
Are you a fine cuisine gourmet cook who needs a high-functioning kitchen?
Do you enjoy casual cooking and baking in your kitchen?
Is your kitchen mainly used for the focus of entertaining family & guests?
Is your kitchen only used to serve the take-out you just had delivered?
Whichever of the above questions best describes you will become one of the main considerations for your new Kitchen Craft kitchen. The way that you use your kitchen in general will truly define almost all of the decisions you and your designer will make for the topics that follow.
For example, a kitchen designed for a gourmet cook will look quite different from the kitchen used by the every-night take-out enthusiast. So be sure to ask yourself about how your kitchen needs to function overall, when you’re planning the layout, the style and the individual cabinet SKUs included in the design.
What’s Your Style?
The word “Style” not only describes the actual door style you choose, or the finish colour that goes on that style.
It also describes how your new kitchen will work and exist in conjunction with the rest of your home.
Creating a Mood Board, or simply collecting samples of various items, such as tile, paint, countertops and even furniture and appliance colour samples will help you to be sure that your kitchen reflects you, and also works and looks the part as the hub of your entire home.
With the addition of our Kitchen Craft Custom Colour Program, you are also now able to define the colour of your new kitchen cabinets based on virtually any paint swatch you can find.
Don’t forget that you can always purchase a sample door to help you through this important process, so that the items you choose are always complimentary and contribute to your overall aesthetic.
What About Kitchen Storage?
Storage and organization in your new kitchen is one of the most important things to consider as you start your New Years Renovation.
With literally hundreds of functional storage solutions available to you, Kitchen Craft Cabinetry will help you achieve an efficient kitchen that will work hard for you, while looking amazing at the same time.
Keep in mind that storage and organization includes both kitchen essentials such as cutlery, small appliances, dishes, spices, pots & pans, plus also storage for such things as food and cleaning supplies too.
For example, are you someone who prefers to buy canned or boxed food items as you need them, or do you tend to purchase those essentials in bulk? This can have a dramatic affect on the cabinetry and interior storage capabilities you choose.
QUICK TIP: No matter how much storage and organization you choose to include in your new kitchen design, make certain that it’s ENOUGH. Don’t skimp on these items now, then wish that you had included them later. You honestly cannot have too much storage in your kitchen!
Once again, this is where your Kitchen Craft Designer can suggest the SKUs that will suit your situation best, and keep your new kitchen in a constant state of order and organization.
Want Some Finishing Touches?
Embellishments such as mouldings, feet, corbels, legs, glass doors and more are also an important part of your New Kitchen Renovation Wish List.
Accessories like these will add a unique “twist” to your kitchen design and will help to solidify it as truly being your own.
We hope that these tips will help you when creating your dream kitchen. Above all, remember that this is YOUR kitchen, and you will likely be enjoying it for many years to come, so taking the time up-front to dream and to plan along with your Kitchen Craft Designer is a step that should never be overlooked.
