With the kitchen being the heart of your home, you should love your kitchen. If you don’t love it, what don’t you love about it? What things would you change about your kitchen? What things would you keep the same?
If you close your eyes and picture your dream kitchen, you see life, right? Family and friends gathered in the kitchen helping chop vegetables for the dinner salad, or laughing over a glass of wine. What does that picture make you feel? Well, finding a kitchen remodeling contractor who can give you that feeling is what it’s all about.
Finding a kitchen remodeling contractor who you trust to bring that picture in your head to life is key. There are countless ways to remodel your kitchen. All you need now is to decide what you want.
Is your mind drawing a blank when it comes to deciding what you want? If so, here’s a bit of inspiration.
1. Open Shelves
Get rid of the dated cabinetry and have beautiful open shelves installed. This allows you to show off your grandmother’s china as well as a bit of motivation to keep your kitchen clean and organized.
Every kitchen needs an island, but what about having two islands? In more and more kitchens, two side-by-side islands are showing up in place of one large central island.
Gem-colored tiles for the backsplash or a backsplash made of a beautiful swirly marble slab is such a high impact change to any kitchen.
4. Classic Blue
Classic Blue was announced as this year’s Pantone Color of the Year, and it’s a perfect choice to use alongside a nautical theme. Classic Blue paired with a bright white as the two primary colors and a true red for complementary touches would be striking in any-size kitchen.
5. Black Floor
Perhaps you have a stunning wood floor or some other unique flooring, and high ceilings. A pitch-black floor can look absolutely jaw-dropping when done correctly. Keep all other colors and patterns minimal.
Light can be absolute magic for any space, but especially small spaces or home additions that have less space to work with. Adding a skylight can breathe new life into any space. To determine where exactly the skylight should go, it’s best to consult with your kitchen remodeling contractor. They know the places to avoid and the spots where it will work out the best.
7. Outdoor Kitchen
Having an outdoor kitchen is literally a breath of fresh air. It can serve as a new level of sophistication and intimacy or be more family-centered.
Discuss with your kitchen remodeling contractor about additions like a stone outdoor fireplace with a cozy seating area or a large pizza oven. These additions can direct what type of atmosphere you’re after. There was a recent survey that found people who had outdoor kitchens were having more fun entertaining than before they had their outdoor kitchen.
Watching the transformation of your kitchen and falling in love with it all over again, or perhaps you’ve never loved your kitchen? Either way, it’s an amazing experience and journey to go on. Just make sure you find a kitchen remodeling contractor that you communicate well with and that you trust.
