A place to gather as a family. A functional space to cook and eat. Storage & organization for…well, everything. It all begins in the kitchen. Rest EZ Contractors is the most efficient and cost-effective way to have that dream kitchen.
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 space should look nice and welcoming to guests who visit. Using colorful materials will help bring personality and vibrancy to your space, which is important when trying to avoid a cookie-cutter look. Customized, just for you.
If you're starting a kitchen renovation, now is a great time to create exactly what you want. With help from Rest EZ Contractors, 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.
In order to store all your cookware and small appliances, you need cabinets, drawers and shelves. To make your space work, use every square inch of space: include cabinets in your island, buy spice racks and hanging pot racks. Place frequently used bulky items on the counter-top, and free up some space by storing less commonly used items in your storage room or basement. And most of all, be organized! Well-organized accessories take up less space, so taking the time to properly store them will be a lifesaver.
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 counter-tops and marble counter-tops 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 back-splash or pick out a vibrant wood floor finish. You can even mix up your cabinetry!
