3 Tips to Plan Your Kitchen Layout



Picking out appliances, lighting fixtures and other design elements for your kitchen remodel can be fun, but if you don’t get the layout right, they won’t function as well as they should. If you want your remodeled kitchen to be worth the investment, DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Greenville shares a few do’s and don’ts to keep in mind. 

Do Consider Your Island’s Size & Placement

Disregarding the layout of your remodel may lead to costly mistakes which add to your overall budget. If you’re planning to update some of your current kitchen features, such as the island, consider how it may affect the rest of your layout. The island should be installed in such a way that it doesn’t impede the workflow or block the area in front of appliances such as the refrigerator, oven or dishwasher. Redesigning your current island is also possible to allow additional space to pass through.

Don’t Forget to Measure Appliances

You shouldn’t forget to take appliance measurements into account. A refrigerator that’s too big may affect how you open the nearby cabinets. Even smaller appliances such as blenders, microwaves, mixers and food processors can affect your kitchen layout if their measurements aren’t considered. 

Do Incorporate the Work Triangle

As you design your kitchen layout, always put function and practicality at the top of your list. For instance, the kitchen work triangle must be implemented early on in your layout design so that your new kitchen is more functional and promotes a seamless workflow.
