We have put together a list of the top 4 kitchen remodeling ideas that you should consider doing this spring to help make your kitchen the place everyone wants to be.
- 1. New Backsplash and Counter Tops: Adding a new backsplash and countertops can be one of the best kitchen remodel ideas that will change the whole look and feel of your kitchen without a huge cost or a long project. Adding tile or even a metal backsplash can help bring a touch of class to your kitchen and a splash of color over painted drywall. The right backsplash can turn an ordinary kitchen into one that has a flair of country, elegance or even a modern appeal. Countertops are also a relatively quick installation and can really update your kitchen. Even on a budget, many new counter top products are available including Corian and travertine that can help give you a sophisticated or stone type look without the cost.
- 2. Add an Island: Since our goal is to help make your kitchen one of the most comfortable rooms in the house, adding an island can be the perfect touch. An island will create a gathering point in your kitchen, and if done properly, extra seating and extra storage as well! If you think your kitchen is too small for an island, you may be surprised where we can help you fit one. Adding an island may including removing some of your other counter space to open up your kitchen and make it more user friendly.
- 3. Great Cabinets: Cabinets add so much character to your kitchen. The color, type of wood and door construction can define the attitude and feel of your kitchen because they will be the dominant feature. Upgrading your cabinets can bring a completely new flair and many conveniences. New cabinets can offer amenities like built in spice racks, wine racks, garbage and recycling receptacles, as well as built in drawers and organizers All these features can help you store every kitchen gadget and appliance in just the right spot ready for you to use to serve your family and be a great host. If you are looking into new cabinets, you might also consider losing some cabinets in favor of open shelves. Open shelves allow you to display decorative containers, choose more colors and textures for the shelf surfaces and will give your kitchen a more open and bigger feel.
- 4. Super-Size the Sink: Oversize sinks are becoming very popular in kitchen remodels as well as new construction. Gone are the days of separated sinks and stainless steel. Today’s sinks are elegant and functional providing you with one large space to work and clean in with a disposal at the bottom so you never have to worry about clogged drains. Oversized sinks can help your kitchen feel more like an old farmhouse or a commercial kitchen depending on the material. They also can be extremely useful if you pair them with a great new faucet.
