Is it time to remodel your kitchen? Whether you’re just changing a few aspects of the room or ripping out the entire kitchen and starting over, you’ll have a lot of decisions to make. And you also need to decide how much of your budget to allocate to different areas. If you’re trying to decide what to focus on in your kitchen remodel, here are some of the most important tasks to consider.
Your kitchen floor receives a lot of traffic on a daily basis, so it’s important that you choose a high-quality, durable material that can withstand all of this. At the same time, the floor takes up a lot of space visually, so the style of the floor is also important. There are lots of different materials to choose from, such as laminate, natural stone tiles, vinyl, or bamboo planks.
Your countertops also take up a great deal of real estate in your kitchen and are the main surface you work on when preparing food, cooking, and washing up. Especially if you cook a lot, your kitchen countertops need to be able to resist heat and scratches. Natural stone countertops are an extremely durable choice as well as being stylish. Marble, travertine, and granite countertops are a few of the most popular choices.
New cabinet fronts
Another big part of your kitchen is the front of your cabinets. If you’re remodeling, you can redesign your cabinet fronts in two ways; installing new ones or refinishing your existing ones. Either option can breathe new life into the design of your kitchen, so choose whichever fits your budget better. There are lots of options when it comes to cabinet doors, from a range of wood finishes to different solid colors.
Add a feature
If you’re looking for a feature piece to add to your kitchen, something that draws the eye when you walk into the room, then a kitchen island is the perfect choice. As well as aesthetically bringing the room together, an island also provides additional space for food preparation or even dining and entertaining guests. An alternative to this is adding a breakfast bar, which might suit the shape and size of some kitchens better than an island.
If you don’t have enough space to install either of these, then you can use your walls to add a feature, instead. A colorful backsplash or decorative tiles on one section of the wall can also be effective at drawing the eye in the direction you want.
