A kitchen island that you think represents the luxury of space is actually a magnet for all the messes. No matter how many times to try to clear out space, the result is always a mess. Not only just the mess, but it is also considered as impractical in kitchens with smaller areas, so just try to avoid this element to much extent.

Try to avoid bright and flashy colors and instead use soft/light colors,  be it greys, browns, greens, purples, lemons etc. This is not only because soft colors lit your kitchen without using any electricity during the daytime at least but also soft colors have long-term value in terms of durability, cleaning and what not. So, try to use the colors which are pleasant to eyes for real.

Too much storage is too bad at times when it comes to additional drawers/dividers because practically they aren’t that useful as they seem and moreover they also invite more junk into the storages which results in a decrement of storage instead of increment. Moreover, they are not only expensive but you have to be too careful while using such complicated drawers, so it's better to avoid them. But there is some brilliant space saver useful tips for the kitchen, which will only help you in staying organized.

Not to forget the working of the kitchen behind putting all those colors and kitchen appliances on point. So, the major 3 elements i.e refrigerator, stove, the sink should be placed close to each other for the easy working in any kitchen. Once this triangle is disturbed, it would be difficult to get ergonomic and functional kitchens which are actually very essential for anyone working in the kitchen.

No matter how many bucks you spend on a kitchen remodeling, I suggest you to not to keep outdated appliances. Updated appliances are must to give the perfect look to any kitchen and definitely a quirky look to the kitchen.

Let’s not just go with the flow of creating cabinets all the time in every kitchen. Using hooks and glass shelves for the display of crockery definitely, creates a surprisingly fresh look in the kitchen and gives your kitchen a very different kind of look. So, I would definitely recommend you to move out of those very traditional kinds of cabinets and prefer these elements, wherever possible.

Use of eye candy material in the kitchen at some point is always important so as to bring the focus of a viewer/user at some point. This focal point could be the boldly painted wall or a texture or an artwork or even some kind of an appliance as well.Remember not to create so many focal points that it seems a mess to the viewer. You may also highlight the kitchen focal point with amazing under-cabinet lighting ideas.

Let the floor of your kitchen speak its own language in its own way because a kitchen is not only about the kitchen cabinets and kitchen appliances but remember the flooring you choose should be durable and needs low maintenance. Also, choose the kind of flooring that never really goes out of style and gives a good return on your investment.

Kitchen Flooring


Avoid high maintenance elements. For eg: tile counter tops where it becomes difficult to clean the grouts. Not only this but the practical and pragmatic warmth of matt versus the extravagance and fleshy fashion of high gloss is also the real problem that many of you faces, So I personally recommend you to choose your materials wisely so as not to face the maintenance issues.

Remember high maintenance elements hardly lets your kitchen keep clean.
