Kitchens and bathrooms are the main areas of a home that most buyers look at for functionality. Now, buyers are also looking for style and design with that function.

So, this has lead more people to search for interior ideas to deal with issues to deal with those problems for years. Now, more people want this in larger homes too. Therefore, I have found several great tips to help you create kitchen style, function and design.
Kitchen Style, Function and Design Tips:
Effortless Spaces – You want the spaces in your home to be effortless in function, style and design as if you were navigating a store. It should be easy, accessible and user-friendly. Therefore, keep this in mind during your kitchen projects. If your space is difficult to navigate, you will be constantly unhappy in your own space, and so will others.
Open Shelving – This tip is for smaller homes or smaller kitchen spaces. Open shelving can help save lots of space if you don’t have cabinet doors to get in the way. Just take those pesky things off. It also gives your space a very sleek look as well as an ease of use.
Furniture Uses – Use old furniture to create function in small kitchen spaces. Dressers can be converted into vanities for extra shelving and storage. Or, you can use an old dresser as an island / butcher block or even a bar. If you have an imagination you can create. If you don’t have an imagination, just use Pinterest. Someone will show you how to do it there.
Technology – Mobile devices are used everywhere by everyone; almost. So, invest in that technology now and add technology to more rooms each time you get a chance. Start with the kitchen and bathrooms. You can add Bluetooth-enabled controls and docking stations, power strips, and showerheads that play music. This will make your home tech savvy and up-to-date in no time.
