Remodeling your kitchen is an exciting event, and one that you want to make sure is done correctly so you can enjoy it for years. One of the most important steps in any kitchen renovation is going to be planning it out and coming up with the best ideas. If you are thinking about a custom kitchen remodel, make sure you consider all the following ideas. Of course, there are many other options you can consider as well, so take your time and come up with the best kitchen design possible.
New Hardware on the Cabinets
If you want an updated look to your kitchen, but you don’t want a full remodel, simply replacing the hardware on your cabinets is a great option. There are endless types of cupboard hardware in many designs and colors, so you’ll get the exact look you want. Whether you are remodeling the rest of your kitchen, or this is your only step, replacing the hardware is an easy way to really add a lot of beauty and character to the entire room.
Add a Kitchen Island
Kitchen islands have been a popular option for generations, and that isn’t going to change anytime soon. These islands really change the way your whole kitchen looks, and they are very practical too. You’ll get a lot more storage area to keep your pots, pans, appliances, and other items in. Of course, you’ll also get a lot more cooking space, which can be very convenient. Even in modestly sized kitchens, you can place a small kitchen island to really help the whole room look its best.
Update Your Boring Countertop
When planning out a kitchen remodel, you want to make sure to put a lot of thought into what type of countertops you are going to use. There are lots of different materials that can be selected, each providing its own advantages and disadvantages. Depending on your personal preference, you can also add in a variety of different patterns that can help keep your kitchen looking clean, or even make it look larger than it really is.
Room for a Relaxing Nook
If you have a big kitchen with some areas that aren’t often used, consider adding a comfortable corner nook. Placing a small sitting area (with extra cabinet space underneath) with some throw pillows and a small blanket in the corner will really make your kitchen unique. In addition to looking great, you’ll have a nice place to relax (which is right near the coffee pot) while you enjoy your newly renovated kitchen.
Get Creative with Storage
One of the most important things to plan out in your kitchen is your storage areas. You need to be able to keep plates, pots, pans, cups, appliances, silverware, and other items safely stored out of site to ensure you are properly organized. While all kitchens will have the standard cupboards, you can add other options as well. Adding ‘bread box’ style storage into countertop corners, lazy Susan type swiveling storage areas, and other creative solutions will help you to maximize how your kitchen space will be used.
