There’s a reason open concept kitchens have held their place as one of the hottest design trends of the last few years; people spend a lot of time in the kitchen and don’t want to be left out of the daily activities. Because it’s the most “used” room in the house, it needs to be both attractive and functional, and if your kitchen isn’t meeting both of those needs, it’s time for an upgrade.
Think About Your Cooking Processes
Before you make any plans for a remodel, consider the way you use your kitchen. Ask yourself the following questions:
Do you like the way it looks?
What bothers you the most about your current design?
Are you spending a lot of time running between sink, fridge, and stove?
Do your countertops stain and scratch easily?
Do you have enough cupboard space, and are you using all of it?
Are your floors easy to clean and attractive?
Do you have enough space to work?
