HOW TO DESIGN A KITCHEN | THE DIY WAY
CONSIDER THE SHAPE, SIZE, FLOW, HOOK UPS, ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES OF YOUR SPACE.
If you're starting from scratch, think about structural elements first.
Now that you know what you have available to you, begin the search! I always make a Pinterest board, or several, dedicated to the space I am creating.
In order to make sure the space will come together as you envision, it’s best to design that space digitally.
With the layout planned, I was able to focus on making sure the design elements in my head were going to go well together.
DECIDE ON THE BIG THINGS – CABINETS, COUNTERTOPS, APPLIANCES, FLOORING, ETC.
I waited until I had all those details in place before we made the big purchases.
HAVE FUN WITH THE LITTLE THINGS – SHELVING, DECOR, FAUCETS, HARDWARE, ETC.
Those big decisions can make me really nervous, but I love having fun with the not so hefty design decisions.
