Start visualizing your new kitchen.
The next step is usually the most fun because its about you new kitchen. Chances are, you have seen kitchens that you like in magazines, other homes, in movies or over the Internet. Start asking yourself the following questions:
- Does the style I like best fit with my home? You may love some cabinets that you saw in a magazine but they may not look appropriate in your home. There is a contemporary decorating trend towards combining dissimilar styles so there are no hard-and-fast rules. If in doubt consult a professional interior designer.
- Consider what kind of color changes you would like to make and also whether your ideal colors would necessitate buying new appliances and kitchen furniture. When you choose colors, think of them in relation to surrounding rooms and try to find colors that complement the rest of the house.
- Finally, consider your budget and any other remodeling that you might want to do. Sometimes, related projects are easier and cheaper when done together.
