10 Kitchen Design Basics

10 Kitchen Design Basics

Are you ready to rethink your kitchen design?

Are you ready to rethink your kitchen design? If you are, then there are some basic components you need to keep in mind whether or not the remodeling project you’ve had in mind is about to begin. We’ve compiled a list of kitchen design basics for you to think about

Overall Style and Design

The first aspect to consider when designing your dream kitchen is what the style will be. Your tastes will shine through, especially as you continue making decisions that will shape your kitchen and the rest of your home accordingly.  

The Layout 

The layout and floor plan of your kitchen should reflect your lifestyle. How much time do you plan on spending in your redesigned kitchen? The work triangle should be the foundation of your kitchen design, but it doesn’t need to be the only blueprint that you follow. 

Cupboards and Countertops 

Do you want to keep your current cupboards? Or would you like to change them? Answer those questions before deciding what you want to do with the countertops. 

The Backsplashes 

If you don’t want spills and stains to ruin your kitchen walls, then you need to put some thought into the look and feel of the backsplashes. Upgrading your current backsplash is well worth the investment. 


The appliances are an integral part of your kitchen design. You can’t forget about them. The fridge, stove, oven, microwave, and dishwasher are the most common elements of any good kitchen design, but they aren’t the only appliances that you might find in there. 


The flooring in your kitchen is just as important as it is in other parts of the house. All kitchens deserve to have elegant and stylish floors. These floors should also be slip-resistant, water-resistant, and easy to maintain. 


Let there be light! Natural light can be welcomed in through windows and skylights. Task lighting and undercabinet lighting is also essential, so don’t forego it. 

Display and Storage Space 

While cupboards are standard display spaces that double as storage spaces, they aren’t your only option. Other options include hutches, islands, armoires, carts, racks, and shelves. A pantry is also a good idea, so if you don’t have one, it might be time to consider adding one to your kitchen. 

The Finishing Touches 

After everything else has been accounted for, you can’t overlook the finishing touches on your kitchen. Take the time to think about window designs, walls, seating, and decorations. Remember that the windows should always match up with the kitchen design, and always be on the lookout for energy-efficient windows.
