You’ve heard it said that the kitchen is the heart of the home. While we aren’t quite sure who said it first, we do know that the saying is spot on. In our homes and the homes of our customers, the kitchen is the hub of everyday activities. Therefore, having a well-designed, functional space that’s inviting becomes important to keeping your home life running smoothly.
At Honey-Doers Remodeling Company of Minneapolis, kitchen remodeling is one of our home-improvement specialties. We are helping Twin Cities residents transform the hearts of their homes every day, and here are a few things we’ve learned along the way.
1. Consider your kitchen’s flow.
Any cook—whether domestic or professional—will tell you that having everything you need at your fingertips makes all the difference in the kitchen. You shouldn’t have to run from one end to the other just to boil water. However, not all kitchens were created equal, and if you find yourself a bit scattered when trying to make a meal, you may want to consider how you can improve the flow of your kitchen.
2. Choose quality appliances first.
Many people save this step for later in the remodeling process. However, if you plan to upgrade appliances, choose them before you start ordering cabinets or redesigning your space. You will need those appliance dimensions for the kitchen design team to know how to best plan out your kitchen remodel. We’d hate for you to order your dream refrigerator only to find out it doesn’t fit your space.
3. Never skimp on storage.
It’s amazing how one room in your home requires so many gadgets and utensils. While they may be necessary, you don’t want to leave them out on your brand-new countertops. Therefore, be sure to plan out ample storage for all your small kitchen appliances, pots, pans, tableware, pantry items, and cleaning tools.
