Kitchen Renovation: How Proper Layout Changes a Space
When a space isn’t fulfilling the needs and wants of the homeowner, that is when a renovation project can come into play. A room may no longer adequately serve the changing needs of a homeowner, an upgrade is needed, and so on; the reasons vary, but as a professional contractor, we are dedicated to consistently delivering quality projects. A current project of ours can serve as an example of the quality we put into the jobs we take on.
This project in particular revolves around a kitchen renovation. Our clients had bought a house with an outdated and very “lived-in” kitchen. Aside from signs of age, a huge issue was space. The placement of appliances and furniture, such as the kitchen table, contributed to this kitchen space feeling cramped. The layout was inefficient and didn't utilize the space in the best way it could. Our clients were unsure of what they wanted for their kitchen space, but knew they didn’t want the current kitchen as it was. This is where we came in as professionals, to not only help change this kitchen into something more suitable for our clients, but also help our client’s decide what they wanted. A huge part of this included changing this old, inefficient layout.
What we did after having some discussions with the clients was an on-site review, where our owner, Randy, was able to inspect the site and evaluate what was there and what could be done. With concept drawings then created, some possible solutions came up, such as taking out a nearby wall, removing the kitchen table, making a bigger island, and bringing the fridge into the work triangle along with the sink and stove. This would not only increase the available space, but also free up what was already there by making the layout more efficient. With these changes in mind, along with increased space, the functions of the kitchen could be improved as well. This included creating two new eating spaces, a casual one in the kitchen featuring a bar, and a more formal one in this new space. Additionally, with moving the fridge into the work triangle and having all primary functions in that area, there was more space for secondary functions in the kitchen including a coffee bar, a double oven, a pantry, and more cabinetry. These enhance how the kitchen can be utilized, allowing more use out of the kitchen partly from rearranging the layout.
This new layout not only allowed for more space, but better utilization of the space, creating a vision of a new and improved kitchen space for our clients.
