- Plan it carefully
You cannot start a major project without carefully organizing yourself. Take a piece of paper and create a list of things you want to change, and most importantly, calculate the cost of it so you can adjust to the budget you have available.
- Feature Trump's Design
When it comes to kitchen renovations, the first thing you need to do is decide where to keep the most important elements like refrigerators, sinks, stoves and ovens, and only after you see that you can work around them should you move on to the decorative part of the renovation process .
- Decide on the color
Choose the color of your walls and tiles before picking out elements. You can choose what you want, but remember that if you have a small kitchen, lighter and more neutral colors will open it, while darker shades can fit a larger space without it appearing claustrophobic.

- Use every inch of free space
In a small kitchen, people find it difficult to take care of everything they need. If you have such a problem, avoid counters, as they can take up a lot of space, but rather set up shelves to open space. To be truly original, use a wall only for all different ingredients and herbs. The green wall helps you save some space on the shelves and gives your kitchen a natural, outdoor look and a pleasant smell.
- Handle the counters
But if you have enough room for them, calculators never go out of style. The only problem you may encounter is their height, since many people lower them and not all the way up to the ceiling. In this way, there is a lot of dust collected at the top, which is definitely not healthy for a place reserved for cooking.
- Enlighten the place
Be more original, and in addition to just installing a central light in the kitchen, place neon lights above the work surfaces, sink and stove. This way, it will not only be more unique, you will see better what you do when preparing food.

- A mandatory element
For a time, the kitchen islands have become a mandatory part of the spacious kitchen. They not only contribute to modern design, but are also extremely practical, as they can be used for cooking, but also for storing a few more appliances, or even installing a sink.
- Keep the air fresh
It is difficult to get rid of the cooking smell from the kitchen, and it can spread around the house and get stuck in the furniture. This is why you should not forget to install a return head and keep it turned on while working at the stove.
Trash will definitely find its place in your kitchen, but consider installing another one for recycling. It is high time that you make your home a little more environmentally friendly.
- Be careful
Last on our list, but not least important is kitchen safety. No matter what type of design you had in mind, it's always good to go with rounded countertops, non-slippery floors, especially if you have children running around the house.
If you follow these ten basic tips, you will end up with a new, fully functional and beautiful kitchen in no time.
