Updating Your Kitchen? 5 Tips for Making Your Favorite Room
  • Opening Intro -

    Your kitchen isn't just the place where you prepare meals and perfect recipes.

    It's the room where your family and friends congregate to share conversation and company.

A kitchen remodel offers you the opportunities to imbue the public room with fixtures and features that make it look less like a laboratory and more like other living areas in your home. Here are five tips that can help make your kitchen as stylish as it is functional.

1. Fashionable Furniture

Making a block of cabinets look more like other furnishings in your home is challenging, but today’s broad selection of furniture-style pieces ensures that you’ll find the right solution. For a fresh, modern look, consider alternating cabinets with open shelves. Another option is to choose a kitchen island with a different finish or style than the cabinetry. This can really mix up the style and give your kitchen a different look. And don’t forget about the walls. For a kitchen you can choose between cameo splashbacks, colorful paint choices, different textured tiles, or patterned wall papers. These are all great options to bring in some color and design.

2. A Place for Everything

When it comes to kitchen style, keeping all of the items that you need in your kitchen easy accessible without cluttering the countertops is the key to success. Today’s modern cabinets come to the rescue with features like adjustable shelves, pop-up platforms for your small appliances and full-extension drawers that keep everything handy but out of sight when not in use.

3. Function-First Sinks

There’s a reason that stainless steel remains the favorite material for kitchen sinks. The durable material shrugs off spills, stains and scratches in high style. Save trendier options for the powder room and invest in a stainless steel sink big enough to handle large pots and pans with ease. Ramp up the functionality with goose neck and pull-out faucets.

4. Super-Charged Style

Make room for high-tech solutions that let you use your electronics in the kitchen easily and safely. Including docking and charging stations for mobile devices is the latest trend in kitchen remodels. Many homeowners are carving out space for a flat-screen television too.

5. Universal Design

A survey of more than 400 kitchen designers revealed that more than half of their clients are requesting products and features that ensure their kitchen remains functional as their needs change. Universal design features that help you age in place include lowered cabinetry for microwaves and wall ovens, pull-down shelves and base cabinet toe kicks that accommodate wheelchairs and walkers.

A well-designed kitchen lets you make the most of every available square inch of floor and counter space without sacrificing one ounce of style. Remodeling with both aesthetics and functionality in mind can turn a hard-working kitchen into the favorite room in your home.
