Kitchen Renovation Tips: Why It’s the Most Remodeled Part of the Home

It seems that a kitchen renovation is the most searched for topic online when seeking out information on home remodeling projects. The reason for that is likely because (next to our bedrooms) we spend the most time in the kitchen. We want a kitchen space that’s comfortable so creating food and socializing can easily be done without feeling cramped or having obstructions.

That’s how good renovating ideas are created. Ultimately, you have many options available to you in helping you create a kitchen space that you can live with for years.

Add New Flooring

This common method to instantly change the look of a kitchen doesn’t have to be overly expensive. Then again, if you have a little money to spend, going with a porcelain floor will last you for years. And while tile floors are also common, you could put down a wood floor as something different. Wooden floors also don’t take as long to install as other flooring does.

New Cabinets and Cupboard Space

Considering how much space cabinets and cupboards take up in a kitchen, replacing them with upgrades can change the kitchen’s entire aesthetic. Styles can range from face frame cabinetry to ones with glass doors. For cabinet pulls, try the satin nickel style that’s now become popular.

Replacing the Countertops

Replacing countertops might be the easiest part of a kitchen renovation next to the floor. Countertop styles are varied, but you may want to go with laminate countertops in your renovated kitchen. These look very attractive, though granite gives more durability if you intend to use your countertops often.

Replacing the Sink

As another common replacement, sink styles are going to vary depending on your personal taste. Stainless steel is always a popular choice, despite granite sinks requiring lower maintenance. Always consider how many bowls in your sink you want. A larger space might be able to accommodate a triple bowl. As well, deeper bowls can go as low as 10 inches if you intend to use large pots and pan in the sink regularly.

Kitchen Island

Here you have the most common stylish add-on for kitchens. If you want one, you have to consider the space surrounding your island. The general rule seems to say about 30 inches between the island and all cupboard space to avoid awkward collisions while moving around.
