1. Lack of counter space
Most kitchens lack counter space. Your kitchen needs to have decorated and functional countertops. When you are updating and improving your kitchen, you need to evaluate your countertop space and what you intend to do with the space. The amount of space you require depends on budgets and limitations. When you’re organizing your countertops, you must understand the flow of people in your kitchen. This will give you an idea of the amount of space required. If you want your kitchen to e good and spacious, you should ensure that you have enough counter space. This will not only help in the remodeling and improvement procedures but also increase comfort and convenience in the kitchen.
2. Failure to have the golden triangle connecting the sink, stove & refrigerator
This is a common remodeling mistake that most homeowners make. If you want your kitchen to be great comfortable to work in, there must be unobstructed access to and from all the three locations. Designers often bandy around the term ‘golden triangle.’ While this may confuse homeowners, it is quite simple. The term refers to the placement of appliances in a layout that is broken up with worktops and open space. The importance of following the triangle rule is to create a kitchen that is highly efficient and easy to use. It is hoped that through effective placement of key appliances it will be possible for users to enjoy a hassle free cooking experience.
This triangle theory, however, is not generic; in most cases, different homeowners will have different needs for their kitchen. The appliances at the corners of the triangle will differ in accordance with how homeowners use their kitchen. For instance, some people would require the fridge, oven and sink as the three points of their triangle while those who do less cooking may wish to place the microwave and dishwasher at the points for easy, stress-free cooking. It all depends on how much you use a certain appliance and how highly it ranks in the usability of your kitchen.
3. Insufficient storage in the kitchen
This is another kitchen remodeling mistake that most people make. If you don’t have enough storage space, it can become more difficult to make dinner, entertain guests, or simply have a place to sit down and relax. Your kitchen should be a place for you to do more than just eat dinner. If it is not, you should really take some time to see what you can do to better equip your kitchen for the long haul.
There are several different types of storage solutions that you can think about when you are looking to keep your kitchen in order. Something that you should remember is that your kitchen is going to be disorganized on several levels. First of all, you’ll have the things that you use to prepare food, the actual food, the condiments, the cooking spices, and oils. And that is just the beginning. Second, you will have your dishes, utensils, glasses, and coffee mugs that you use on a daily basis. All these things need to be organized as well. And there are always things in your kitchen that just do not belong there, but you may think that they do not have anywhere else to go. These miscellaneous items are one of the biggest factors in how clutter makes its way into your life or your kitchen for that matter. If you can create a place for everything, then your kitchen, and your home will be much more organized.
Your counter may have different appliances including toaster, waffle maker, coffee maker and other appliances. They all need to be well-organized. If you don’t use your waffle maker every day, so go ahead and find somewhere to store it when it’s not being used. Installing lower cabinets with plug-in adaptors build into them allows you to have access to those things, as well as to be able to hide them away when you aren’t using them.
4. Choosing the wrong kitchen island or having it in the wrong location
The proper kitchen island design can make or break the planning of a home, primarily based on the manner it is situated.
The most important factor to consider for all our kitchen island units is the size of your island and the size of the kitchen in which it will be installed.

After all, if you install kitchen island units that are either too large or too small for the size of the kitchen, then the result is either an abundance of wasted space, or a limited amount of space with which you can maneuver around your kitchen. This is where The Kitchen Island can help.
