4 Critical Questions to Ask When Redesigning Your Kitchen
  • Opening Intro -

    If you're planning to redesign your kitchen, chances are that you are probably overwhelmed by all the decisions and options that arise.

    What flooring should you use?

    What appliances should I outfit my kitchen with?

    You may be wondering where to start.


The process can be much less daunting when you break it down into four key considerations: 

What Flooring to Use?

Cleaning, comfort, appearance and durability are all key components that should come into play when selecting a flooring that is right for your kitchen. 

Ceramic tile is a commonly used flooring choice for bathrooms and kitchens. They come in a variety of colors and are durable. Comfort, on the other hand, is not the best with tile, especially if you plan on spending much time in your kitchen. Wood is the most naturally produced and looking of the flooring types, while laminate offers an artificial version of the same quality. Linoleum is the most affordable option, and tends to be durable except when exposed to standing water. Vinyl is the most popular option due to a combination of it’s comfort, low costs and wide variety.

Choosing Kitchen Appliances? 

Appliances are the functional part of the kitchen. Function as well as looks are important factors when considering the appliances you wish to install in your kitchen. 

Today we have many options for high functioning appliances which cook our food and clean our dishes at speeds that weren’t even imaginable in the past. When considering the sink and or dishwasher, remember that there are professional plumbers that can help you get the job done quickly and efficiently.

What Kind of Cabinets?

When deciding on cabinets, keep in mind that this is a key component of your overall kitchen functionality and decor. They are by far the most visible part of the set up and should therefore be carefully considered in light of the overall aesthetic and design. If you’re going with wood cabinets, maple, cherry and oak are the most popular types. Laminated cabinets are also good options as they are easy to sturdy and easy to clean. 

Also consider the space options when deciding on kitchen cabinets. There are innovative designs specifically structured to provide maximum storage while also maintaining aesthetic appeal. 

Which Kitchen Countertops?

Granite countertops which are easy to clean, such as granite and stone. This is the best choice for giving off the appearance of luxury and providing durability at the same time. In fact, this is generally regarded as the ideal solution for most homeowners.

Solid surface countertops are more mid-range in price and consist of solid synthetic material without the layers of filler. They consist of mineral compounds combined with polyester to produce a slick and smooth surface.

Laminate entails the majority of kitchen countertops. They come in a wide range of looks and are easy to clean as well. They are lower in quality than solid surface countertops.

The prospect of remodeling any room, let alone a room as utilitarian and functional as a kitchen, can seem daunting. There are many important factors to consider, but hopefully by seeing the different options the choice will seem easier.
