With your remodeling goal in mind, take some time to identify what’s important to you.
The two aspects of a design that meets your goals are needs and uses. Needs are WHAT you do in your kitchen. Uses are HOW you use your kitchen. Of course, needs come first, so get yourself a clear page for brainstorming.
To get an inventory of what you NEED, consider what you go to your kitchen for.
- What do you do every day? Coffee or Tea? Breakfast bar, Cereal or Eggs?
- What do you use most? Are you a gourmet cook with a lot of special equipment?
- Are there many cooks in your family?
- What do you do that you love? Do you bake, can, or entertain guests?
- Do you use a recycling or compost container as well as trash can?
- Do you have enough outlets for small appliances and charging phones?
- Are there repairs needed?
Go ahead and fill up your sheet if you like. Then rank them! Select 5 (or 3, or 6) of your most important functions or needs for improvement. You can circle, star, underline or number them.
These needs go right underneath your kitchen remodeling goal.
