Kitchen Remodel Mistakes to Avoid

The kitchen is the most important part of your home. So when are remodelling your kitchen, there are some common mistakes you should steer clear of. Whether you want to sell your home after the remodel or simply looking for a refreshed kitchen, good design has its benefits.

Let’s take a look at kitchen remodel mistakes you should avoid.

The Work Triangle

The work triangle is at the centre of a good kitchen. Ensure that the cooking area, the refrigerator and the sink are laid out in a triangle that accommodates open access between each of them. These are the most commonly used areas of your kitchen, so a direct access between them will make cooking easier and faster. Keep each leg of the triangle anywhere between 4 to 9 feet in length.

The Islands

Kitchen islands are gorgeous and highly utilitarian, but this calls for a lot of planning. Sufficient space is necessary to bring your dream kitchen island to life. A kitchen island must not block any part of your kitchen triangle. That’s a big no. Adhere to these basics, and you’ve got yourself the perfect start.

Counter Space

In the scheme of bigger things, you might forget about the workspace. With so many equipment and appliances to place, your space may become the last priority. Leave enough counter space around every appliance to ensure there’s room to work. At the very least, have at least 15 inches of space on either side of an appliance. This way, your counter will not only be uncluttered, you will have enough space to work.


It’s easy to overlook storage in light of big appliances or other features that may look exciting. But in the long run, storage will make a huge difference. Ensure there’s enough room for your most commonly used kitchen equipment including knives, toasters, blenders, pantry goods and others. Ignore them now and in no time you will be scouring for space so much so that you may have to reconsider another remodel or upgrade.
