Kitchen Remodel Palm Beach Gardens

Living in Palm Beach Gardens boasts a multitude of benefits such as sunny weather, a low crime rate, a high income per capita, and lots of local amenities. With this idyllic lifestyle in mind, here are pointers on remodeling your Palm Beach Gardens kitchen:

Kitchen Confidential

Are you the type of kitchen inhabitant who neatly prepares everything prior to starting your culinary creation? Do you, like celebrity chefs, have your ingredients measured out in little bowls atop an immaculate counter-top? Or are you more of a “pressure test” on MasterChef kind of a cook – running and splashing and spilling – all accompanied by an artistic grin?

Respect the Triangle

As a highly functional room in your house, the kitchen must be well designed for streamlined operation. For optimum functionality, ensure that your stove, sink, and refrigerator, if linked by imaginary lines, form a triangle.  Despite some avant-garde trends, the traditional work triangle — sink, refrigerator, stove — is not obsolete. Imagine the hassle of living with a kitchen where the refrigerator is on the other side of an island from the sink and stove. You will have to walk around the kitchen island to get something out of the refrigerator. The sum of the work triangle’s three sides should not exceed 26 feet, and each leg should measure between 4 and 9 feet.

Sweat the Small Stuff

To avoid bad kitchen karma, insist that your kitchen designs pay attention to the tried-and-tested basics. There are a lot of variables to consider, so take the time to sweat every little detail – such as additional drawer dividers, pantry pullouts, or a lazy Susan, before you start your kitchen remodel. The design phase is when you can ensure that all your requirements are covered.

Counter space is the most valuable real estate in your kitchen. Design kitchen cabinets that allow you to pack away items which are not used all that frequently to free up space on your counter tops.

Kitchen remodelling trends

Any kitchen remodel should be a comprehensive project that covers everything from counters and flooring to cabinetry. For instance, if you decide to remodel your floor with trendy, new tiles, you will find that your old cabinets will look more dated than ever. When you decide to remodel your kitchen, think carefully about the cabinetry you want to include in your new look. For a great contemporary feel, consider the following trends in the areas of design, colors, surfaces and features:

  • Design: Industrial and minimalistic designs are currently in vogue. You could opt for open shelving, which has made a major comeback in the past couple of years, or you could choose Shaker or Slab style doors. Transitional and open frame options are also popular.
  • Colors: Blues and grays are popular choices at the moment, with the possibility of tasteful two-tone arrangements and variations. White is a safe and elegant choice, while many people still go for the timeless beauty of natural wood grain.
  • Surfaces: Regardless of what material people choose for their cabinetry, we find that most tend to prefer matte or calk finishes over glossy. Natural wood – whether light or dark- is still frequently requested.
  • Features: The biggest trend in cabinetry features is the need to create multi-functional units that save space and make it easy to keep kitchens neat and well organized. People ask for drawers with extra depth, and multipurpose islands, for example. When it comes to hardware, the fashion tends towards minimalism: flashy and intricate have given way to simple and functional.
