Renovating and refurbishing your kitchen is a worthwhile effort and investment. It can enhance the atmosphere of your home and increase its value. This video offers excellent tips on kitchen remodeling. The presenter has gone through the process himself and speaks from experience.
The Cabinets Above the Refrigerator
You should first turn your attention to the depth of the cabinet above the refrigerator. In most kitchens, these cabinets are about 12 inches from the front of the fridge, which makes it impossible for most people to reach them without a ladder. You should therefore install cabinets that are easier to reach.
Open Shelving and Knee Clearance
Open shelving is another great idea and is becoming a popular trend in kitchen remodeling. When done well, it can make your kitchen more open and airy. It can also save you a great deal of money, as you will not have to install cabinets for your dishware and crockery. If you plan to have chairs in your kitchen, you must ensure that your kitchen island has an overhand with enough room for you and your guests to sit comfortably. For a standard 36 inch counter top, you should have at least 15 inches of knee clearance.
