When discovering kitchen remodeling ideas for your kitchen, there are several different aspects to consider. Overall, a functional space is key — after all, you want your kitchen layout to work well for you. You should carefully consider where to place your stove, refrigerator, island and cabinets to ensure plenty of space to cook, eat and entertain. Next, you should keep storage in mind. Kitchens contain a lot of utensils, pots, pans and small appliances, so be sure to have enough space to store all your favorites nearby. Finally, your farmhouse space should look nice and welcoming to guests who visit. Using high-quality, colorful materials will help bring personality and vibrancy to your space, which is important when trying to avoid a cookie-cutter look.

How do I determine my kitchen layout?


If you're starting a kitchen renovation, now is a great time to create exactly what you want. With the help of a kitchen designer, even a small space can have spacious storage and a nice flow. For small spaces, a galley layout is a great option. Since horizontal space is limited, think vertical; stack counters and shelves high up on the walls, and try to find innovative storage containers and double-duty pieces. For larger layouts, try an L-shaped or U-shaped kitchen with a large center island or peninsula. It provides plenty of cabinet and countertop space, and you can add a bar-height counter to the island for an instant eat-in space. In the end, it's important to think about what your family uses the room for and then cater to those needs when you start implementing your kitchen remodeling ideas.

How can I add more kitchen storage?


In order to store all your cookware, bakeware and small appliances, you need cabinets, drawers and shelves to spare. To make your space work, use every square inch of space: include cabinets in your island, buy spice racks and hanging pot racks, and invest in a cart. Place frequently used bulky items on the countertop, and free up some space by storing less commonly used items in your storage room or basement. And most of all, get organized! Well-organized accessories take up less space, so taking the time to properly store them will be a lifesaver.

What countertops and cabinets should I use in my kitchen design?


Because the layout and storage options are pretty standard, picking interesting materials is key for helping your kitchen stand out. When it comes to counters, granite countertops and marble countertops are elegant options, while concrete, limestone and stainless steel counters are a little more trendy. For a bit of color, add a bright mosaic tile backsplash or pick out a vibrant wood floor finish. You can even mix up your cabinetry! Frosted cabinets are great for a modern feel, while painted cabinets make for a nice but cheap kitchen remodel.
