It can be difficult to envision the look you want. You've spent years in this kitchen and have grown accustomed to the usual look. A good place to start planning your DIY kitchen design and remodeling project is at the library. Page through the home decorating magazines. Look for issues that focus on kitchen designs. There are also magazines dedicated to the kitchen. Notice different arrangements, color schemes and features, such as pantrys, islands, breakfast bars and lighting which you find attractive. Of course, you may not be able to fit everything you want or like into your kitchen design, but these magazines will provide all the food for thought you'll need. Photocopy pages of kitchens with particular features you'd like to integrate into your DIY kitchen design and remodel. Pencil in notes of color schemes and note the manufacturers of particular products (usually in the index) that you like.
In the pantry, install a counter with 4 electric outlets. This is where the coffee maker, toaster, electric can openers, etc are to be permanently located. It keeps them off your kitchen countertops, but they are always available to use. No need to store them in your cabinets and no need for appliance garage cabinets. This leaves your main kitchen countertops \"clean\" (nothing on them) and more open for the food prep you need to do.
This new refurbished kitchen now has matching kitchen light fixtures that not only enhance the theme of our entire kitchen but applies useful beams of light to all the right places. We no longer have dark corners and can now use the entire kitchen, so our careful planning of our kitchen lighting fixtures definitely helped it feel more spacious because of the careful lighting design. We do not have to struggle any more to see what we are doing, when baking, reading recipes, helping with homework, loading the dishwasher, or just peeling vegetables.
