When planning your kitchen first ask yourself what you really need. Do you like to bake and roast or do you prefer fried and boiled food? How much fridge space do you require? How many sinks do you need? Is there 1 cook in your kitchen or do you want enough space for 2 or more cooks? Do you want to have breakfast and simple meals in your kitchen or do you want to use it for cooking only?
Having enough fridge space is essential. As a rule of thumb you need half a cubic meter (500 liters) for the first two family members and another 0.04 cubic meters (40 liters) for every additional family member.
Kitchen cabinets quality and price cover a wide range. Inexpensive cabinets are often cheaply made, and though they will look good when new, the doors may sag over time, and pressboard sides may warp. Good quality cabinets will be made out of thicker plywood or solid wood boards, and will last a lifetime. You can buy custom made cabinets to match your kitchen layout or to meet special requirements in your kitchen. Your new kitchen should look good for your life time, so buy the highest quality cabinets that you can afford.
Do you want oak? Vaneer? Pressed wood? Pine? The type of cabinets you choose create the look/feel of your new kitchen. If money is tight in your situation then it would be recommended that you go with a special non-oak cabinet that gives the appearance of oak. This vaneer material gives your kitchen renovation the look and feel of oak without the price of oak, which is perfect for budget conscience customers. The type of wood you choose dictates the wood grain and textures that your kitchen's character will display. If you are looking for a modern look then perhaps a pine kitchen will suffice if you are looking for a rich looking kitchen then maybe oak is your choice, or maybe you want a contemporary look therefore birch wood would be perfect for you.
