Ready for some Fun Kitchen Remodeling Ideas? Remodeling your kitchen can be a very exciting thing for you to do. This goes double if you’ve been wanting to do more cooking and need a reason to make it more fun for yourself. Cooking in a brand new kitchen is like experiencing the joy of cooking all over again. If you’re stuck on what to do though, these kitchen ideas should get you started.
4 Popular Kitchen Remodeling Ideas for Your Monmouth County Home
Don’t Forget the Kitchen Work Triangle
Before you go crazy with any other ideas, make sure you’ve remembered to include the kitchen work triangle in the design. The kitchen work triangle is the space that includes the fridge, the cooking and prep area and the main sink. By keeping all of these in close proximity and in a triangle, you can cut down on all the running around and maximize the efficiency of your time spent in the kitchen.
Choose Countertops that are Conducive to What You’ll Use them For
Not all countertops are created equal, and the wrong kind can cause you a lot of headache. If you plan to be doing a lot of chopping and dicing, go with a countertop that can handle the chopping and dicing directly. It will be one less cutting board you’ll have to take in and out and wash, and you’ll have so much more room to work with.
Don’t Skimp on Appliances
These will be the things that help you move your cooking along as quickly as possible, so you’ll want to spend on quality equipment. A few hundred dollars more might seem like a lot when you’re shopping for new appliances, but it will seem relatively small over the lifetime of its use.
Make Efficient Use of Cabinet Space
Cabinets are great for storing all your stuff, as it’s just unused space if you have nothing there, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t use all that space wisely. Consider adding small drawers where you can store smaller items and spices in areas that aren’t being used.
Only you will be able to tell what type of kitchen remodel is perfect for you, and if you don’t know, don’t be afraid to go around looking. Some people even go to open houses at luxurious homes, just to check out the kitchens and get ideas. We love browsing the beautiful kitchens on Houzz for inspiration.

We are remodeling the kitchen, family room, dining room, and laundry room in our home. This includes changing the layout/floor plan of our home to fit how we live our day to day lives. Jason genuinely listened to our needs, took the time to understand how our family lives in our home, and incorporated that into the designs. Nearly all of our feedback has been included in each of the designs, and any remaining items were openly discussed with pros/cons, and what our options are. We now have 3 terrific plans to choose from, and have the opportunity to cherry pick our favorite from each, and have them incorporated into one final plan. Design Build Planners have done an amazing job of helping our family get to a design that fits us. Jason has been terrific to deal with. He is very responsive, accommodating to our busy schedule, and has gone above and beyond in helping us with our design. ~ BK Bridgewater, NJ
