A kitchen renovation can work wonders for your morale. You get a new lease on life. You feel like you just won the lottery. You feel like can take over the world. … OK, maybe we’ve gone a little too far, but the thought of renovating the kitchen in your Paradise Valley home is still pretty awesome. So awesome, in fact, that it’s hard to stop thinking about it, especially with so many decisions to make.
“Light or dark?”
“Stainless steel or not stainless steel?”
“Traditional or modern?”
“Lots of partitions or a big, wide open space?”
“For baking or for cooking, or do we have room for both?”
“Oh, hey! Do we want to add a beautiful outdoor kitchen too?”
With so many things to think about, renovating the kitchen in your Paradise Valley home can be a daunting, albeit exciting, task.
Here’s our best advice: Step into our bathroom and kitchen design showroom in Mesa to get started. Tell our kitchen design consultants what you really want out of your kitchen redesign, and they will give you pointers on how to make it happen as easily as possible. Sometimes, when you have too many options, you need someone else to straighten it all out for you, helping you to eliminate the options that aren’t as feasible or ideal as some others.
That’s why you need kitchen design experts to show you the way.
In the meantime, however, here are a few of our tips.
• Start with your budget. List the things you want, and then decide what you need, what you would very much desire, and what you could do without. Incorporate them into your kitchen design in that order.
• Adequate lighting is a must. You need to be able to prepare and cook meals without having eggshells crunching in your omelet, and you need to be able to see what you’re cutting. If you prefer not to have a blindingly bright kitchen, at least make sure your cooking area and the kitchen countertops where you might prepare foods are well lit.
• Make sure your kitchen is well ventilated for safety reasons and in order to ensure that that air conditioning gets to you. Include a place for a fire extinguisher, and make sure everyone in your home knows how to find and use it. Install and maintain smoke alarms according to regulations set by federal or state agencies and your local fire department.
• Choose countertops, floors, and furniture that can stand up to all you can dish out.
