Remodeling the interior of a kitchen can be quite simple and easy but also it can be very slow depending on how much you wish to spend. If you can properly plan and remodel the kitchen, then it should make your life much easier while incorporating a welcoming look. If it isn't then the complete opposite will occur, where you will have sore feet from walking all day.
Planning the kitchen is very important, this is because a wrong placement of kitchen furniture and it could mean walking 5 steps for every little utensil, you really don't want that. My advice is to make a brainstorm, put all your appliances that you use and group the ones that are most often used together. After you have grouped them, then you should decide where the group is going to go. Now you should design the kitchen interior. I have learnt from my experiences that it is much, much easier to group the appliances and then remodel the kitchen interior accordingly, as this saves time and any unnecessary mistakes. Also remember to try and give as much spare space to every group. This can be quite difficult for small kitchen but is very important.
In a small kitchen colour can be very important, this is because bright colours can make your kitchen seem much larger than it truly is. However having a single shade of colour can easily ruin the kitchen. This is because the kitchen needs to fit the rest of the home, and if your home gives and antique feeling then the kitchen should to. What I would do is, add a bit of patterns to your kitchen walls and make it match with the rest of the house. Remember the kitchen is the heart of the home so it should also match the exterior.
Another annoying factor can be light. This is to many of you who live in apartments that do not receive any shed of natural light, simply add more electrical lights. These lights should be able to make the kitchen feel much brighter. However they do not have to be always on the ceiling, instead they could be above the stove and near a couple of cupboards that do not really receive much light. As a general rule, I would not have any more than 3 separate switches for lightbulbs, this is for other people that may use the kitchen.
Completely remodeling the kitchen interiors can be a hard task, and it is often better to avoid it completely and just rearrange the kitchen furniture. that being said, if you can design it perfectly you could make the valuation of the house rocket up.
