1. Be realistic
Be practical but open to ideas on how any kitchen can be radically transformed with good, functional design.

2. Study wisely
Take note of what new materials are available. There are quality finishes and appliances that suit all budgets. Go for the best you can afford. However, do your homework and don’t restrict yourself to the cheapest items. For those items that you will be using heavily, make sure they age well and will still look good in the long run.

3. Don’t be afraid of colour
Even if you only like white, combine it with punchy accent hues.

4. Invest in your kitchen
This actually helps increase value of your home if you sell it.
