Avoid These Kitchen Remodel Mistakes

kitchen remodel mistakes

A poorly-designed kitchen will cost you in fixes down the road.

When considering a kitchen remodel, it is critical to consider even the smallest detail in order to avoid critical kitchen remodel mistakes. These mistakes can affect not only the overall look of your kitchen, but its functionality. While a kitchen which feels or looks incomplete is a definitely downer after investing time, money, and love into deciding on the perfect kitchen remodel, one that is more dangerous and less user friendly after extensive work is even worse. Read on to learn more about kitchen remodel mistakes to avoid.

Forgetting Lighting

This often overlooked aspect of remodelling projects can make or break your kitchen. While too little lighting makes a room look dark and uninviting (and can even lead to serious injury if you cannot see what you are working on properly in your kitchen), too much lighting makes a room look stark and reminiscent of a hospital. Consider window placement, room size, and the uses of any room when thinking about lighting.

Forgetting Mouldings

Make sure to consider mouldings when it comes to your kitchen remodel. Wood mouldings on cabinets and walls can add an understated elegance to any room. Whether you want an elaborate and fancy look or something minimal and elegant, mouldings can add a lot of character to any kitchen.

Being Inconsistent When It Comes To Design

If you want a sleek and modern design, rustic wooden cabinets or furniture will look very out of place. If you favor a more classic 50’s look, hypermodern stark white walls and furnishings will not help to accomplish this goal. Whatever theme, look, or feel you decide on for your kitchen remodel, be sure to stick with it to avoid a kitchen that looks confused and mismatched.
