Abreu Enterprises gives advice on kitchen design, kitchen storage and lighting when planning a kitchen renovation.

Abreu Enterprises, a Sacramento Kitchen Remodeling Contractor says that a functional kitchen begins with the floor plan. A kitchen remodel should not only improve aesthetics but greatly improve function. It is important to customize a kitchen floor plan that fits a family’s lifestyle. Work flow should be taken into consideration for efficient movement in the kitchen.

Homeowners should begin the kitchen design process by determining the primary function of their kitchen use. Gourmet cooks have different needs than those who entertain or self-serving, busy families. The main use of a kitchen will dictate the types of appliances and how many are necessary, which is an integral part of the design process. A kitchen can be expanded by knocking down a wall for more space. “Creating an open floor plan in the kitchen makes the cook feel included and the family or guest are not isolated, making them a popular design with homeowners,” said Ken Abreu, owner of Abreu Enterprises.

A kitchen island will give more counter space and a larger prep area for cooks. A kitchen island also provides an informal eating space and more cabinets for storage, warming drawers and wine storage. Large pantries can accommodate big box store products for families and room for improved organization.

Task lighting can be installed under cabinets to be used during food preparation or over sinks and stoves. Ambient lighting is all-purpose lighting and can come from the installation of windows and overhead fixtures like pendant lights, modern fixtures or recessed lighting. Decorative lighting accents architectural features and details in the kitchen.

While creating a kitchen remodel that is utilitarian is important, it doesn’t mean style should be sacrificed. Paint can liven up a room and give it personality. A beautifully designed backsplash creates a functional and decorative focal point in the kitchen. Updated countertops, fixtures, appliances, flooring and cabinets will complete the modern transformation.

Energy efficiency is an added bonus that comes with any kitchen remodel. Technological advancements in lighting, windows, and appliances will guarantee lower monthly utility bills.
