For some the kitchen may be that place where they just warm up microwave meals to eat in front of the TV, but for others the kitchen is so much more! It is a place of harmony… gourmet meals, entertainment and family. So you're thinking of revamping your own kitchen but don't know where to begin? The homify team have compiled a list of tips and ideas to ensure that your kitchen remodel is perfect and that no detail is left out! 

Essentials such as the kitchen sink are more than just a must for hygiene purposes, the kitchen sink is now an expression of style, so don't forget to allocate adequate space in your planning? As with any remodelling or construction, things do go wrong and the use of incorrect materials could see you forking more money out in the long run. Look at the aesthectics of the material and its quality before making any decision!

Size and Shape

So you've chosen your kitchen style and colour but are yet to include the measurements for your appliances and of course your kitchen sink. Consider the amount of people you entertain in your home and whether you have children before making a decision on your kitchen sink.

A double sink could be more efficient in washing and rinsing off dirty dishes and may be a better option for your home, investing in a larger kitchen sink is also best for those days when you need to wash larger plates and platters, so keep that in mind!

Drains (Types of Valves)

Now that you've chosen your kitchen sink, it is important to check the quality of the valves and pipes available to ensure that no damage or flooding may occur in your revamped kitchen. The sink is ultimately the place where leftovers are washed off so at times food will be washed down into the drain as well, choosing valves that can handle the water and food and a good drainage system is definitely a must!

Advantages of Materials

Certain materials such as stainless steel, quartz, granite, ceramic are a better choice for the space surrounding your kitchen sink, these materials have a long lifespan, are easy to clean and don't get moldy or house damp. If you are considering a kitchen remodel, it is imperative to include quality materials. Although there is no lifetime guarantee for these materials, they should be regarded with care and consideration, so always bare in mind some materials are more advantageous than others!

Disadvantages of Materials

Just as some materials are more advantageous for your kitchen sink, others are disadvantageous. However, whatever material you eventually decide on, one thing is definitely for sure… if it is a quality material, then there should be no reason for unforeseen damage.
