Tips to keep in mind to renovate your kitchen.
Before starting any renovation or reform it is important that you compare budgets, do not stay with the first one they give you, but ask for second opinions. In this way, you will see what you can get with the budget you have.
The tiling and installations
The tiling and installations are the most difficult part to change. If you do not do it at the time of the reform, doing it later could be a problem. Therefore, we recommend that when you find yourself immersed in a comprehensive renovation of your kitchen, you do it. In this way you will avoid having to invest more money in the future, and you ensure that the pipes and electrical wiring are in good condition before placing the tiles and furniture and having to remove them again in the future.

Be aware of the light.
Light is a key element. A space, with one type of light or another, changes radically. In case your kitchen has little natural light, in the reform it is time to; add windows or add more lights to give it lighter. For example, for warmer environments, 2700 or 3000K light is usually used. On the other hand, for more practical and functional kitchens, it is more advisable to opt for daylight, that is, 4000K. Important fact, opting for led or low consumption lights will help you reduce your electricity consumption.
One of the goals in a kitchen renovation is to gain storage space, that is, to add more cabinets and drawers. But beware! Do not go overboard with the kitchen storage items, think that the more storage, think that the more storage, the more unnecessary objects you will keep. This can ultimately be messy and stressful.
When choosing furniture, it is not only important the color or the trim that they have, but that they are of good quality and durable, but you risk that in a short time they deteriorate or break.

What color is better? This depends on the style of each one of us. However, from Living we recommend light and warm colors to make the space clean, cozy, and modern. However, we have also created incredible kitchens with dark colors but in spacious and bright spaces.
Having the washing machine in the kitchen is not the best idea in the world. Try to find a laundry space and remove dirty clothes from the space where you cook. Bathrooms can also be a good option, especially the closer to the cabinets the better.
