5 Tips To Ensure A Successful Kitchen Renovation
With the holidays coming up, we’re all bound to be spending more time in the kitchen than usual. Between the extra work and extra people who will be moving around your space, it can start feeling tired and cramped. This is usually when ideas of how to better make use of your space come to mind. Whether a kitchen renovation is your dream or your current reality, keep reading for some tips that will ensure success.
Invest in the Best Appliances
For most people, a kitchen renovation is a one and done job. This is your chance to incorporate every item you’ve found yourself wishing for over the years, so spring for the best. If you find your fridge or countertops always cluttered with wine bottles, install a wine fridge. If you’re the entertainer, an ice maker might be the perfect addition to your kitchen. When making a final choice, think realistically about what you use the most each day in the kitchen.
Let There Be Light
The kitchen is probably the most important place in your house where you need to be able to see what you are doing. Under-cabinet lighting is a great addition that will not only illuminate your workspace but also show off the design of your countertops and backsplash. It also works to provide just enough light at night to find what you need in the dark without lighting up the whole room.
Weigh Your Options
The most challenging part of a kitchen renovation may just be choosing your countertop. While you may want the look of marble, that is not a reasonable option for most people. Keep in mind how often you will be prepping food on your counters. If you are a messy cook, quartz countertops may be your best choice since they are easily kept clean. If you care more about the look of your counter, you may prefer to go with a granite countertop with a unique pattern.
Be Open to Change
If you’ve been dreaming of your kitchen renovation for years, you probably have a vision in your mind of exactly what you want. However, trends change, and appliances are updated. Be open to suggestions about the design of your kitchen. Many homeowners are opting to install more than one color cabinet to break up the look of the kitchen. Others are changing over from gas to electric cooktops, which use less energy and save money.
Don’t Forget the Details
While you may be caught up in choosing the prettiest countertop or matching your backsplash to your flooring, don’t forget about the smaller details. It may be surprising, but there are many different faucets designs from which you can choose. Some have attached sprayers, while others have water filters built-in. You can even install a pot-filler faucet with an extending arm to provide ease.
