What to Consider When Remodeling Your Kitchen
The kitchen is the heart of the home and is the place where families and friends gather. There’s nothing quite like having a kitchen that is both functional and beautiful. If you are considering updating your kitchen, there are a few key things you should think about:
1. Make it Interesting
When designing your new kitchen, you should work with your contractor to bring to life an eye-catching component. Even if your style is on the more subdued side, your kitchen needs an element of the unexpected sort. Perhaps you’ll go with a hanging pot/pan holder that resembles a wagon wheel, or possibly a countertop made out of crushed glass instead of the oh-so-common granite or quartz. Remodeling allows you to explore your creative side.
2. Consider Your Cooking & Entertaining Habits
Although it’s easy to get carried away with the design side of things, don’t neglect the function side. Think about your habits and work with your contractor to craft a kitchen that will allow you the working and entertaining space that best suits your needs. If a double oven is a must-have for you, find a way to work it in; and if a grand island where your guests can convene fits the bill, make it happen.
3. Be a Savvy Shopper
A huge part of remodeling is looking for appliances, fixtures, cabinetry, countertops, etc. Take some time to think about what is most important to you and what you are willing to spend a little less on. If a farmhouse sink is a must, then splurge on that component, and be ready to be more discerning with other elements. The great thing is that there are so many wonderful products out there these days. You can get a great end-result on a budget, and an experienced contractor will guide you through the process.
