We believe the kitchen is one of the most important rooms in any house. When contemplating a replacement or renovation, consider how much time you spend there with loved ones, making meals or snacks, studying, or socializing. In most households, a family starts their day in the kitchen and ends it in the kitchen. This is why a kitchen should be a functional, comfortable and cosy place.
When it comes to designing the perfect kitchen for your family, there are a number of things we invite you to consider. First and foremost, your budget. You can dream of a spectacular kitchen, but it’s important to know how much you have to spend! Your budget and your design will work hand in hand.
Once you have determined that, the next thing to consider is the space you have for the kitchen and the layout you want. Are you building an addition? Can you combine with a family room? What areas are used the most? Planning the kitchen layout involves deciding where all the major components go, such as islands, gas stoves, sinks, lighting, etc. Our design team at Spectrum Cabinets will ensure that your layout is well structured and we’ll make sure you don’t leave anything out.
Kitchen storage is part of the layout question. Storage is crucial to the functionality and efficiency of any kitchen. By storage, we mean overhead cabinets, base cabinets, drawers, a pantry, and shelves. Proper provision for storage will make it easier then to decide on the proper arrangement of appliances in the kitchen. With modern kitchens it’s all about reducing clutter.
Good lighting is very important in any kitchen. A good targeted lighting system will cover all corners of a kitchen but offer flexible levels. Good lighting also creates a cosy ambience in the kitchen.
Proper Ventilation in a kitchen will help ensure air circulates. A kitchen is a place where different spices and smells come together, and fans and windows will ensure that the kitchen isn’t stuffy.
Flooring is an important choice. Tiles are easy to clean but can be hard on one’s back. Wood is more flexible but you need to avoid spilling water. Vinyl flooring is popular.
