If you have a remodel on your mind for your kitchen, it’s just as helpful to know what to avoid as what to include. And the most important in this particular room? Kitchen layout mistakes, which can make or totally break your space.

‘Rushing ahead with cabinetry materials and not paying attention to the floorplan really is the biggest of the kitchen design mistakes I see.
