The Biggest Kitchen Design Mistakes

Advice on kitchen renovation — things that work, things that don’t work, and elements that people often forget or underestimate.


This article via The Kitchn may bring out simple ideas, but honestly it offers some great advice.

Of course there is so much more to consider, but who can resist a simple do’s and don’ts list.

Here a few takeaways:

  • Bring cabinets all the way up to the ceiling: Short cabinets collect dust and unneeded accessories.
  • Use cabinetry to conceal some appliances: As opposed to going overboard with stainless-steel appliances, which can make a kitchen feel choppy and small.
  • Leave some breathing room: There’s rarely a need to completely fill a room with cabinets. A good layout is a balancing act between storage, function, and aesthetics.
  • Invest in strong and good-looking cabinets: You’re opening and closing those doors and drawers all the time. Get something strong and good-looking. Hardwoods, a good finish, and strong hinges are essential.
