Remodeling a Kitchen is definitely one of the toughest remodels of the home. The Kitchen serves more than just one basic function in a house and is often considered as the most used room in any house. The kitchen can serve as a place for a family to connect over a meal after a long day. The kitchen is also a high traffic zone for animals because of their heightened sense of smell and their interest in scraps of food. Don’t forget about your kids running to the sink to wash their muddy hands from playing outside and your husband who needs to grab a beer from the fridge after work. From staying in the kitchen, to doing some homework or crafts, to just walking by for a snack – the foot traffic that goes on in every kitchen is high. You should take all of these frequent and different situations into consideration when remodeling your kitchen.
One of the first decisions to make with your Tacoma Kitchen Remodeling project is the initial consideration of the island. Deciding the function of your island will give insight on what the rest of the space must accommodate for. The island can serve as a place for storage, seating, cooking, a prep station or simply necessary counter space. If you’re really crafty like we are here at Renewal Remodels & Additions, you can make your Tacoma Kitchen Remodel island serve as a multi-functional island providing for numerous situations. With this first detail accounted for, the rest of the designing will fall together much easier.
As mentioned above, the kitchen is a constant traffic zone filled with people wanting different things. To make your kitchen safe and comfortable, it should have wide pathways. The safety of your kitchen will increase if people are not running into the walls and the cabinets (or the cooking area with the hot stove and oven). Wide pathways will decrease the occurrence of accidents in your kitchen overall. Your Tacoma Kitchen Remodeling project should account for the main function of the kitchen – make it comfortable to cook in!
