With needs accounted for, the more specialist kitchen installations can be mapped out and chief amongst them is the plumbing. In any kitchen renovation project, the position of the sink and electrical appliances needs to be given serious thought, as there is a rule of thumb that states how far apart they should all be. In terms of plumbing, it is always a nice idea to locate a sink in front of a window, where at all possible, as that allows for a pleasant view while carrying out chores and means that external drains can be easily accessed as well. Of course, if a kitchen island design is going to include the main sink, plumbing will be a little more of an obstacle, but any professional will be able to navigate the project simply.
Your kitchen doesn’t have to match up 100% with the adjoining space’s look. You can still enjoy a super modern kitchen with stainless steel appliances, situated only a few feet away from your country-style living room, for example. However, you need to include accent colours in both areas to pull the individual zones together (like using a similar hue in your kitchen island and dining chairs, or hues that complement your kitchen’s backsplash and living room’s sofa cushions, etc.).
We recommend going with solid wood, in-frame doors for a quality finish. You then have the option of leaving the wood in its natural colour (with a varnish or wax finish), or splashing on a fresh coat of paint in the appropriate colour (just remember our tips from number one).
With a potential layout in mind, turning attention to the more decorative and aesthetically pleasing elements of a kitchen make perfect sense. In order to really capture the right finished look, it's essential to spend as much time as possible looking at already completed kitchen projects, for inspiration. Online scrapbooking sites are a great way to not only look at plenty of projects, but also save particular images as reference material to show a kitchen planner or carpenter.
