Do you not agree that our day begins and ends with the kitchen? We start our day with a sip of coffee and may end it with a glass of wine; it is all related to the kitchen. Hence, the kitchen is usually compared to the heart of any household and needs special attention and care while designing.
Desire and design take turns to complement each other when it comes to modern home decor. Known as the power center of the house, the kitchen plays a major role in building lifetime relationships. Interior designers now focus on and take the utmost care in the setup of the kitchen. Most of the modern houses prefer kitchens that are creative and are tailor-made according to ones need. One major requirement of these interior designs is stones used for flooring, countertops, and island counters. They play a major role by adding essence to your home and accentuate it to its highest potential.
Here are 5 awesome tips to redefine your kitchen experience:
1. Decide on the kitchen layout by understanding the space
Begin with selecting a layout that best suits your kitchen space. This can be decided by knowing the surface area of your kitchen. Utilize the space by creating the perfect work kitchen triangle by keeping separate areas for prepping, cooking, and washing. Then work with your kitchen designer and select from the layout options- the G, U, L, single layout types to make sure that you are getting the basics right.

3. Be Functional and Practical
While we understand that most of your thoughts would be on getting the decor right, it is equally important to be functional and practical. Choose the cabinets and their position wisely so that it is easy for you to access the tools and utensils. With the help of an interior designer, choose and decide on the place that you would like to place pans, accessories, shelves, and spice storage units. Concentrate and give attention to vertical expansion in the kitchen to accommodate more with proper breathing space.
4. Room for Color, Light, and Space
Three things that accompany you in the kitchen are the stove, sink, and your mood. Relish your cooking experience by having a kitchen set up close to a lively atmosphere. A good source of light not only calms your nerves but also makes a kitchen more functional. If this is not possible in modern apartments, then make sure you are close to a window.
Have enough space in your kitchen so that you can accommodate more people without affecting your work. Given more space, you can also consider adding bar stools and other equipment. Make it a place for gatherings and let your kids enjoy their play and homework on the kitchen countertops.
Color adds to the feel-good emotion of your kitchen experience every time you step in there. A lighter color is always suggested as it makes the space look open and bright. The stones that you choose for flooring, backsplashes, and countertops add to the color and spacing perfectly.

With already so much going on with the colors and patterns while crafting the perfect kitchen, avoid messing it up with unnecessary clutter. So, plan for waste management so that you can hide them elegantly from the guests. The kitchen sink also needs little discipline by adding a beautiful dispenser for the soap and the washing liquid.
