A kitchen island is a great way to add extra counter space and storage to your kitchen. It’s also a perfect place to entertain guests while you’re cooking. If you’re short on space, there are plenty of small kitchen island options that will still give you the functionality you need.
Although there are many benefits to adding a kitchen island, be prepared to spend a bit of money, as this type of upgrade requires a fairly substantial investment. The final cost varies based on whether the island will include plumbing and electrical, but you can expect to spend between $4,000 and $5,000 on materials for an island and anywhere from $3,500 to $5,000 on labor.
Open shelving is a trendy way to display your dishes and glassware. It can also be used to store cookbooks, spices, and other small items. If you’re not a fan of dusting, consider adding glass doors to your open shelves.
A new backsplash can brighten up your kitchen and protect your walls from spills. Kitchen backsplashes are available in a wide variety of materials, including tile, stone, and glass. Change the whole vibe of your kitchen with a strong backsplash.
If your kitchen appliances are more than a few years old, it might be time for an upgrade. Newer appliances are more energy-efficient and can make your life easier. For example, a new dishwasher can save you time and water, while a new refrigerator can help you keep food fresher longer.
But don’t go overboard when selecting new appliances. There’s a range of price points for new stoves, refrigerators, and dishwashers, and while it’s important to have updated features in your kitchen, it’s not necessary to buy the top-of-the-line options.
Update, Paint, or Replace Cabinets
Cabinets are one of the most important aspects of any kitchen. They provide storage and help to define the overall style of the space. If your cabinets are outdated or in need of repair, consider updating them as part of your remodel. You could also paint or replace them entirely depending on your budget and preferences.
Install New Flooring
Installing new flooring is a great way to change the entire look of your kitchen. There are many different types of flooring to choose from, including tile, hardwood, laminate, and vinyl. Talk to your contractor about which option would be best for your Kitchen Remodel based on your needs and budget.
Comfortable Seating for Casual Eating
What is fresh and exciting is the trend toward integrating this component into the heart of the kitchen where those preparing food and others “just hanging out” feel more closely connected. It is relaxed and inviting, a place for the family to eat together, and a cozy spot to chat with guests deep into the evening. Flexible/dimmable lighting discussed later, is an asset for this spot.
One of the best additions you can make to your kitchen is comfortable seating for casual eating. This will allow you to relax and enjoy a meal with your friends and family. If you have the space, consider adding a small table and chairs or a Kitchen Island with seating.
These are just a few ideas to get you started on your Kitchen Remodel. With the help of a qualified contractor, you can transform your kitchen into the perfect space for entertaining, cooking, and casual dining.
