A high quality kitchen, for what concerns the furniture, can last in good condition even for 20 or 30 years; having said that, on the other hand, household appliances instead not only have a much shorter useful life, but, over time they become “obsolete” and then, although our kitchen is still in excellent condition, it is completely natural that after ten o fifteen years, visually (and sometimes not only!), you no longer fully satisfy us, because the tastes and trends in furniture now change from year to year, as well as lifestyle habits change.
The desire to renovate the rooms in the home, therefore, is absolutely understandable, especially if we are talking about a place like the kitchen, which is in fact one of the most vital and used spaces in a home, it is an intimate and familiar, the one to which more than any other we associate the idea of ”home”, also by virtue of the scents and memories it arouses in each of us.
If, therefore, you have decided in one way or another, that the time has come to review the layout of your kitchen, read our advice to do it in the best way, because, even if it doesn’t seem, but, the things to decide are many and the implications of a practical and aesthetic order are innumerable therefore it is good to carefully weigh each choice, so as not to regret it, at least for the next 15-20 years!
Furthermore, it is not said that to bring a wave of news it is necessary to spend a fortune; clearly if you want a total revolution you will have to be willing to spend and take on the inconvenience that construction works involve in an inhabited house, but sometimes by spending reasonable amounts you can still get the desired result, let’s see how.
When you want to intervene, the very first thing to do is a precise and detailed survey of the environments you want to renovate, so that you can return everything graphically. You can also carry out the survey yourself, using a meter or better still a “disto”, or a laser pointer that is used to measure distances; the important thing is to mark in a precise and correct the presence of any windows or doors, with their sense of opening, as well as that of recesses or protrusions and then must adjust the position in which they are the attacks of the gas and of ‘water, the discharge of the latter and all the so-called “power sockets”, ie those sockets dedicated to the most powerful appliances, the light sockets and the light points.
Only by putting all this information together can you first understand how you would like to distribute the various elements in space and then if this is feasible and at what price. Because if you want to radically change the existing layout, in some cases doing it is quite simple as it is enough to perform traces on the wall in order to reposition and adapt the systems, other times instead it may be essential to also remove the existing flooring to make traces in the screed, work certainly feasible, but more expensive and long.
