Your kitchen is the heart of your home. Making the decision to remodel your existing space shouldn't be taken lightly. After all, you want to make sure that your space is going to look amazing and be functional after the home renovation. Oftentimes, people get in a rush to get things done and end up forgetting about all of the small details. To make sure you don't make a costly mistake in your kitchen remodel, here are three things you need to keep in mind. 

Don't forget about the overall workflow.

One of the main things you have to think about when remodeling your space is overall workflow. Remember what the busiest areas of the kitchen are. You want to make sure that your refrigerator, sink, and stove are all conveniently located and within a reasonable proximity to one another. The three items should essentially represent a triangle so to speak. This creates functionality and improves aesthetic appeal.

Carefully consider the amount of counter space you have.

Counter space is crucial when it comes to remodeling your kitchen. You want to make sure you have ample room to chop vegetables, prepare large family meals and have a place to lay the dishes when you choose to wash them by hand. Overall, you don't want to be confined to one small space to try and hold all of your kitchen gadgets and prepare meals for the family. Don't settle for a tiny amount of counter space when you deserve more. You can always add in a little extra space by bringing in a kitchen island to give you adequate space to prepare meals and store pots, pans and other cooking items away.

Forgetting to pick the appliances first.

Oftentimes, people end up remodeling their kitchen and then going out and picking the appliances out. However, that isn't the best approach. You should choose all of your kitchen appliances first and foremost. Then, you can choose counters and cabinets to fit around all of your appliances, rather than trying to choose an appliance that is going to fit into the cubby hole you created. Not only will this save you a lot of hassle, but it also ensures you get the appliances you truly want in your newly designed space.

By taking the above into consideration, you can make sure you get the kitchen space you want without having to sacrifice any of the design elements you want.
