House Beautiful published an excellent article with wonderful images highlighting ‘The Biggest Kitchen Design Mistakes’ and it really does have some helpful points. A number of the points relate to design preferences, such as “too boring” and “too busy”; but the following three are actually quite good reminders of kitchen design mistakes to avoid:
Avoid kitchen designs lacking countertop space around wall ovens and appliances. This is one of the most important and fundamental of kitchen planning concepts. Not only is it inconvenient, it can become a safety hazard when you have hot, heavy dishes to remove from the oven.
Too much storage? Alright, we acknowledge that there are many kitchen design specialists who would disagree with this, but it is possible to have a kitchen with too much storage. Create open space and use it for windows, artwork, entertainment centers, vistas into an adjacent room – there are lots of options for extra space beyond adding cabinets.
Finally, the House Beautiful article notes the mistake of creating upper cabinets that fall short of the ceiling. It truly is a matter of preference, and both kitchen cabinet styles actually can be made to look very attractive.
