Before we start, we want to make it clear that we're not saying that you need to embrace ALL of these ideas to get a dreamy kitchen! Naturally, your personal style preferences are going to play a huge part in how your kitchen looks and functions, but we wanted to give you some easy pointers today, just to get you started in terms of a new kitchen plan! We know that professional kitchen designers will be able to help you include everything you want and need into your space, but you might discover a few must-haves here that you never considered before and really, can you ever have too much inspiration? We don't think so, so let's take a look at some things you should, potentially, be considering!

1. Be sure to include countertop-specific lighting.
