The way you feel about the practicality of your kitchen will influence your overall feeling of functionality throughout your entire home. Yes, kitchens are a serious part of any home for most homeowners, and more importantly, for homebuyers. When preparing for a kitchen remodel, it is important to consider everything you need and want, as well as the projected costs. One of the most important things to consider when preparing for a kitchen remodel is the overall functionality of space. Here are some top layout picks for kitchen remodeling from general contractors.
The Galley Kitchen: A galley kitchen is the ideal design for a kitchen remodel if you want to maximize workspace, while having limited square footage. This shotgun-style kitchen maximizes counter space for working as well as cabinet space for storage. General contractors will warn you, though, that the biggest drawback is there is no space for a kitchen table.
The L-Shape Kitchen: this kitchen remodel layout offers privacy when cooking, since the L-shape usually features a wall that divides the entertaining room from the kitchen. If you would like to create a clear distinction between your kitchen and other areas of your home, consult with a general contractor about adding this design to your kitchen remodeling plans.
The Triangle Design: The triangle design, also known as the holy Trinity of any working kitchen, is designed for a practical and easy workstation. The three points of the kitchen are all conveniently located in the shape of a triangle; the range, sink and refrigerator.
The U-Kitchen Layout: This kitchen remodel layout provides massive counter and storage space, as well as great flexibility. The U-Design kitchen is the ultimate one-cook kitchen; the perfect workspace to spread out and create a culinary masterpiece.
