The kitchen has transformed into the perfect place to breathe new life into your home.

More than just a place to prepare food, the kitchen is a manifestation of your personality and lifestyle.

Many professionals and companies dedicated to interior remodeling projects recommend careful financial planning as the first step. However, our expert team suggests that the initial step is to define the new functionality of your kitchen and then select potential styles. This will serve as the foundation for creating the Budget you need and assessing if you have the resources to bring your dream kitchen to life.


1. Functionality: Adapt the Space to Your Preferences and Needs


As mentioned earlier, the first thing our team recommends is defining the scope you want for your kitchen. This includes making it more functional if you are an avid cooking enthusiast. It’s crucial to determine the type of activities you envision in this space and decide if you want a kitchen with appliances that suit your daily needs and lifestyle. Answering the question, “What do you dream of doing in your kitchen?” essential at this stage.

2. Design and Style: Envision Your Kitchen and Let Your Imagination Soar


More than just a place to prepare food, the kitchen is a manifestation of your personality and lifestyle. When planning the design of this space, define how you will distribute elements to make the kitchen appear more spacious, with each element strategically placed for aesthetic, technical, and functional purposes. To choose the design, explore design magazines, online galleries, and interior design blogs to select designs that suit your tastes and needs.


We also recommend considering hiring the services of an interior designer to help translate your ideas and style into a personalized design for the kitchen of your dreams before starting your project.

We recommend combining natural light with artificial light to ensure balanced illumination and good visibility at all times.

When designing your space, take care of important aspects such as:


  • Color: Choose a Palette that Reflects Your Style

Color plays a significant role in the atmosphere of your kitchen. We recommend selecting a palette that complements the color scheme applied in other interior spaces of your property, reflecting your style, and evoking the emotions needed for each activity you plan to undertake in this space. Neutral tones offer timeless elegance, while vibrant colors can add energy and vitality.


  • Floors: Choose Durability and Style

When selecting the flooring for your kitchen, ensure it matches the flooring installed in the rest of your house.Additionally, consider factors such as the type of material and style. It is vital to note is that the kitchen floor should be water-resistant, given theextensive use of water in this area. We recommend researching different types of flooring and their respective advantages.


  • Storage: A Functional Kitchen is One with Space for Everything

Planning the cabinets in your kitchen is a fundamental aspect that should not be overlooked. Having sufficient storage allows you to keep your kitchen organized at all times and provides the necessary space for food, appliances, and kitchen utensils. Consider creative solutions like pull-out shelves and internal organizers to maximize the available space.


  • Lighting: Choose the Right Illumination

Choosing suitable lighting is key for creating a cozy and functional ambiance. We recommendcombining natural light with artificial light to ensure balanced illuminationand good visibility at all times. Consider incorporating large windows to sabe energy during the day and utilize recessed lights, pendant lamps over theisland, and LED light strips to highlight specific features and ensureadequate lighting during the night. During the planning and design phase ofyour remodeling project, research strategies for interior lighting.

This guarantees safety, prevents future deterioration requiring additional expenses, and prepares your kitchen for future technological innovations. If you need to update these systems, factor it into the budget.
