When it comes to kitchen remodel ideas, the possibility of regretting not spending a little more is probably even greater than regretting too much expenditure. Whether your ideas for a kitchen remodel stop with cabinets or extend to introducing a fully functioning island, you should take the time to contemplate how you can take the renovation to the next step in an affordable fashion.
Kitchen remodel ideas that center around an upgrade in cabinets often overlook a number of options that can make the investment pay off greater than they otherwise would. When shopping for cabinets that are to become the focus of a remodeling job, take the time to consider some minor details that can make a major difference. Examples of worthwhile kitchen cabinet options range from doors of beveled glass to the installation of crown molding in the small space between the top of a cabinet and the ceiling to create a more elegant aesthetic. Add-on possibilities within the cabinet space itself include roll-out drawers, shelves mounted on the doors and built-in cutting boards.
Any kitchen remodel ideas that revolve around the introduction of an island present a wealth of possibilities for options that can take the renovation to the next level. If you’ve always wanted space for a wine rack and your current remodeling plans just don’t have the room for such extravagance, you may be overlooking the added space afforded by the island. Kitchen islands genuinely expand the universe of remodeling ideas by offering up the potential to add a wealth of options you may have prematurely discarded. Among the remodel possibilities that can be attached to a kitchen island: an indoor grill, customized drawers for storing those “difficult” items, a slide-out spice rack or even something as offbeat as a station for feeding your pets.
The introduction of a fancy new sink is a common element of many different kinds of kitchen remodel ideas, but also an element that frequently doesn’t make enough room for complete flights of fancy. The addition of a sink to a remodeling plan for any kitchen that is exposed to a less than ideal water supply could certainly benefit from the option of a filtering system. Other options to consider are going with a double-basin sink rather than a single basin or even a sink with a small, shallow third basin that is used exclusively for preparing meals rather than washing up afterwards. An oversized pull-out sprayer, ornamental faucets and decorative tiled backsplashes are all options you may regret not including after the remodel has concluded.
