The Top 3 Kitchen Design Mistakes to Avoid

If there is something that you hate about your kitchen design, it can cause a real annoyance and headache when you are busy in the kitchen. If you are looking to build a new home or remodel your kitchen, this article is a must-read. Our team of experts here at Carolinas Custom Kitchen and Bath Center has compiled the top three kitchen design mistakes for you to avoid:

  • Kitchen Design Mistake #1: Bad Lighting- Whether slicing an apple, reading a recipe, making crafts with the kids at the counter, or whatever else you do in your kitchen, excelling lighting is essential. Nothing is more frustrating than trying to accomplish a detailed task in the kitchen and not being able to see. Both natural and artificial light are necessary, so make sure that your kitchen design includes some great window to let the sunlight in. Some often-forgotten lighting areas include a light directly over the sink, lighting under cabinets to better illuminate countertops, and lighting in the pantry.
  • Kitchen Design Mistake #2: Not Enough Storage- If you are like most people, you have a lot of items in your kitchen that need to be stored. A common mistake in kitchen design is not including enough storage. Whatever you think your storage needs are, add to it (and then maybe add some more). There are always more storage needs than you anticipate. Our experts recommend utilizing the vertical space in your kitchen by extending your cabinets all the way to the ceilings.
  • Kitchen Design Mistake #3: Not Working With a Professional- A professional will ensure that your kitchen design is perfectly tailored to you. Call us today to learn more or to receive a quote for your project—we’d be happy to help!
