9 nightmarish decisions to avoid when renovatingBy Vika https://pictolic.com/en/article/9-nightmarish-decisions-to-avoid-when-renovating
When people are planning renovations or just buying something nice for their home, they often look at beautiful pictures on the Internet and in magazines. But they don't always read reviews from people who have already tried out certain design ideas. For example, handleless kitchen cabinets look amazing both in the photo and in real life, but in real life, they are really inconvenient to use.
At Pictolic, we've figured out what fashion design ideas can turn into a nightmare.
1. Kitchen furniture without door handles.
Kitchen furniture without conventional handles, which opens when you press on the surface, looks really cool and modern. But in reality, all surfaces will be covered with fingerprints, and the opening system is not always so convenient.
2. Kitchen wall with lots of seams.
The modern world offers many different materials for wall decoration in the kitchen. But remember: the finer the elements, the more difficult it will be to wash off the fat. Especially at the seams.
3. Sophisticated chandeliers in the kitchen.
Many people still believe that large chandeliers with many decorative elements are appropriate in the kitchen. In fact, cleaning up all these small pieces of lighting is pretty tricky. And grease along with dust will surely accumulate on the chandelier. Nothing can prevent this.
4. Cup-shaped chandeliers.
Bowl-shaped chandeliers may look pretty, but they are definitely not practical. There will be a lot of dust inside, you can be sure. So, if you decide to acquire such a chandelier, be prepared for the fact that it will have to be washed regularly.
5. Door handles with sharp edges.
There are many different doors handles to choose from. And sometimes you don't realize that some of them are dangerous until it's too late. This is especially true for handles with sharp edges. You can get your clothes stuck on them all the time and even rip them. This happened to the author of the article several times.
6. Bright colors in the kitchen.
For a long time now, people have been buying kitchen cabinets in bright colors. It may look pretty at first, but then you get used to these colors, and they may even annoy you. You can and should use bright colors as an accent or highlight something.
7. Upper kitchen furniture with pneumatic doors.
Kitchen furniture with pneumatic doors seems very modern, comfortable, and practical. But only not if short people live in the house. Once the door opens, you either need to jump to close it or climb onto a chair.
8. Sink in the form of a glass cup.
These shells look amazing in photos. But in real life, they are really impractical. They cannot hold a lot of water, so you should always watch and make sure that the water does not splash or overflow.
9. Fixtures on top of kitchen furniture.
These lights look good but don't work at all. They light up your head, but not your work surface. It is better to place the luminaires directly under the cabinet.
