One good question to ask yourself, when planning a kitchen remodel;
“will I need dining space in my kitchen?”
Are you wanting an eat-in kitchen?
If the answer is yes and you plan to dine in your kitchen, determine to what extent.
Do you just need a breakfast area? Or do you intend to eat the majority of your meals in the kitchen?
What about a bar countertop, Kitchenette, or an island? These are a few potential options if you plan to eat in your kitchen.
Also, do you already have an existing dining area/room? How do you find you utilize that space? Is this your main dining area or is this room saved for special occasions?
Kitchen remodeling can be fun, but you will need to make sure you think about these things before you start.
If your dining room is your primary eating area; but you want more ease of access between your kitchen and dining room. Talk with your designer about the possibility of opening up a wall to merge the two rooms.
So if you are starting to plan your kitchen remodel, don’t forget to talk with your designer about how you intend to utilize the space and discuss your options for accommodating the space available with your desires.
