  1. Less Circulation Space

A kitchen may feel cramped and restrict the number of people who can comfortably use the space at the same time as if you fail to allow enough circulation space. When your kitchen doubles as a thoroughfare, it will cause even more issues. Appliances such as the fridge and dishwasher would be difficult to open if there is a lack of space.

  1. Unplanned round workflow

It is very essential to have a good kitchen workflow. If you don’t have one, you might end up running backward and forwards between the different parts of your kitchen every time you cook, wash or prep and also your kitchen will be inefficient.

  1. Appliances are not being measured

There will be excessive protrusion from oversized refrigerators if there is a lack of planning when it comes to measuring the electronic appliances. To open cabinets and other appliances in your kitchen, and reduce circulation space are some major things that affect.

  1. There is a lot of stainless steel

Always keep in mind that if you add stainless hardware, sinks, and lighting fixtures, your cozy hearth might start to look a little like a morgue, even if you have put all the appliances such as fridges opens and dishwashers with the shiny chrome finish.

  1. Forgetting about the trash

Trash is not that attractive as compared to backsplashes and countertops. Make sure you carefully consider its placement else there are fewer chances of your kitchen to look good even after renovation.

  1. Storage needs are underestimated

It is important to jot down a list of all the things that you will need to store in your kitchen at the beginning of the renovation of your kitchen. List all the appliances, various kinds of utensils, containers, groceries, etc. in the order of priority and then plan their positioning in a manner that you think will be the most convenient considering their usage. Incorporate various types of storage modules like tall units, drawers, and pull-outs to house all of your kitchen essentials.

  1. Chimney and exhaust positions are forgotten to plan

You belatedly realize that it is necessary to excavate a hole in the wall or ceiling for the chimney exhaust pipe and it’s quite often as it’s only at the tail end of the renovation process. To avoid unnecessary alterations at a later stage make sure to plan your student chimney positions well before embarking on civil work. You can house inside wall cabinets, to conceal an unsightly exhaust pipe showing in your otherwise well-coronated kitchen.
