Kitchen renovations can be very costly; one of the biggest expenses when planning your remodel. Custom cabinetry, counter top material square footage, and new appliances add up quickly. Before you impart on planning your new kitchen, you want to make sure that you aren't putting money into something that will feel dated or worse, disfunctional, after a short time in use. Luckily for you, I have outlined some key considerations when designing a modern kitchen over at the Better By Design blog with some killer kitchens that exemplify :
- an open space plan
- elimination of upper cabinets
- clever storage solutions
- concealed appliances
- unexpected finishes
And be sure that I practice what I preach and am incorporating all of these elements in the kitchen currently under development in Encino.
