How to select the right design for the kitchen?

Achieving a perfect modern Victorian design is a big and exciting job. Homeowners get to make pastel shades, choose the right countertop, and do a lot of research. It’s clear that it isn’t the easiest job!

When it comes to styling a kitchen with a modern victorian design, there are some things one should consider:

Create a wishlist

Homeowners should begin their kitchen remodelling by mind mapping and writing down all the characteristics of their ideal kitchen.

For instance, which colour quartz countertop would suit one’s kitchen space? Or which design trend they wish to have in their kitchen space?

This list can be expanded to include more abstract concepts that designers can assist with, such as cabinetry made of various materials, countertops, sink design, etc.

Create a budget

The price of the kitchen must be specified in detail at the outset of the remodelling project.

How far one can go with their wishlist completely depends on the money. Homeowners should determine realistic spending limits for the project. Be sure to calculate expenditure for decoration, plumbing, flooring, lighting, wiring and any finishing design elements in addition to the kitchen itself.

Additionally, homeowners should include an additional 10% as a safety net in case additional expenses arise.

Make the right countertop choice.

Looking for the right countertop for kitchen space is pretty exciting.

Quartz countertops are considered one of the best for kitchen space because of their durability, appearance, and scratch resistance qualities. There are many colours of quartz countertops available in the market to choose from. Make a choice that suits the kitchen space and complements the Victorian decor.

Flooring

It may be surprising that flooring is considered so early in the design of a kitchen. But, it is far simpler to select cabinets that complement flooring than the reverse. Flooring is frequently a permanent fixture that won’t change, especially in houses with open kitchens.

The objective is to alter the design as little as possible. It’s much simpler to choose additional design components later on if one first decides on the flooring they’ll use.

Details

It could be anything – a spice rack, a place to dry dishes, and a very spacious pantry. These choices will be made in consultation with the designer and within the constraints of the available space.

Appliances

Homeowners will have a good idea of how much room they would have by this stage in the design. It is now time to decide which appliances to order. This is an important stage because it ensures that everything fits together precisely. The cabinets’ design and size cannot be finalized until the appliances have been picked.

Designing a modern victorian kitchen – Conclusion

That’s all! These were some design ideas for homeowners to stylize their kitchen in a modern Victorian kitchen space.

A Victorian style reminds us of the times with classy and authentic designs. Adding quartz countertops in kitchen spaces can surely give a look that homeowners expect from Victorian designs. Homeowners can go through the Caesarstone catalogue and find out which suits them the best!
