The kitchen is often called the heart of the home. It’s a gathering place where members of a household naturally congregate to eat, snack and prepare food. Perhaps it’s for this reason that homeowners often dream about remodeling their kitchen.
If you’re one of the many homeowners who dreams about remodeling their kitchen, but has never gotten around to it because it seems too overwhelming or expensive, don’t let these doubts ruin your vision for your home. Kitchen remodels don’t have to be complex and difficult to manage. A simple kitchen remodel can drastically improve your kitchen space, making it more functional and beautiful. Just a few adjustments may be all that’s standing between you and your dream kitchen. Check out these 6 simple but effective remodel ideas for some inspiration:
Almost all kitchens could use some extra storage space. Additional shelving can provide an attractive enhancement to your kitchen. You can use additional shelving as basic storage space or you can use it as a place to display your favorite dishes and kitchen items. Wrap around shelving can form a style all on its own, providing extensive space for storing items. Consider adding a rod below the lowest shelf added for hanging pots, pans, kitchen utensils or tea towels.
Get a style makeover and update your kitchen with a rustic farmhouse design. Redo or reface your kitchen cabinets in lovely traditional wood painted white. Consider updating your backsplash with stone or even with wooden insets. White is also a nice clean style for farmhouse walls. A butcher block inspired island is a classic farmhouse style kitchen piece. Perhaps consider some iron fixtures for your cabinetry and sink to complete the look. A few decorations and accessories will make your new kitchen look perfect.
A cabinet makeover is a simple remodel that can completely change the look of your kitchen. Are your cabinets too plain? Perhaps they’ve suffered some scuffs and scratches due to years of heavy use. Or maybe you just feel that your cabinets don’t reflect your style anymore. There are several options to update your cabinets. You can choose to reface your cabinets or replace them completely. A re-facing means you can change the look of your cabinets without changing out all the interiors and the shelving.
Add an Island
Additional counter and storage space in the kitchen is fantastic! You can make it permanent or have one with wheels that can conveniently roll off to the side when it’s not needed in the center of your kitchen. An island can really add utility and a wow factor to your kitchen. Consider having a large cutting board as part of your island for easy food prep. It can be your go-to storage space for pans and pots that don’t fit anywhere else.
Update Color Theme
Tired of your kitchen colors? Perhaps your cabinets are too dark or the paint just isn’t your style anymore. Consider adopting an updated color scheme. Go for black and white or add some cheerful yellow. A light teal can also look nice on wooden cabinets against a fresh white background. A few bright accents on your key decorative pieces can also help liven things up with your newly painted kitchen. Your countertops can also take the spotlight. Consider using bold designs and colors or stone to make your countertops stand out.
Adjust your kitchen to fit a more modern style. Are your cabinets outdated? Perhaps the tile you once loved now looks outdated. With a remodel, you can adjust all of this to create a more modern look. Reface or paint your cabinets with fresh modern colors. Replace your fixtures with sleek, modern designs. Tile and countertops can often be resurfaced without completely replacing it. Talk to your construction specialist about what you’d like to do and your kitchen will be transformed before your eyes.
So, as you can see, kitchen remodeling can be simple, but really makes a difference. You don’t have to gut your kitchen to enjoy a new, more functional and visually pleasing space.
