The first thing that you need to think about when designing is that whatever else you do there eating, playing games, watching TV it is really a place where you prepare meals and bake cookies....  So... you need kitchen design ideas that will make preparing these meals and snacks as easy as possible.

The simplest layout is the "classic triangle", where the stove and sink are at the two legs of the triangle and the refrigerator is at its top. This layout helps to ensure that everything is close at hand.... making your life easier. 

Lighting is also something to consider as a part of your kitchen design ideas. The wrong lighting can make the room look unwelcome - you want the room to look inviting and welcome.... keep that in mind....  The best finds a balance and provides enough light to see what you are preparing while also leaving room for the occasional monopoly game at midnight!

Counters and cabinets are something else to keep your eyes on, so you should think about what you want in your home. If you need cabinets, do you want to simply reface your existing ones, or purchase new ones? Even if you get stock cabinets, you can still change their look by repainting or staining them.  You might even consider changing your cabinet hardware.

 

What kind of countertop is the best for your look?  Stone counter tops are some of the best around - these are expensive but are the most resistant to stains and daily use. 

The colors that you choose for your home can also affect the outcome of your kitchen remodel ideas.... even if this ins the only change that you make to your design... Choosing the right color schemes will make this so much easier, so spend some time researching colors and make the best color decision for your layout.  In choosing the correct colors for your kitchen, take a look at the color wheel chart to help you make the best possible choice.

Choosing the right features for your remodel project will help make sure that your kitchen design ideas will result in a room that is both functional and attractive.
