Fresh kitchen remodelling ideas

The kitchen should be designed and built to last for years. However, when a kitchen starts showing signs of deterioration, a kitchen remodel is inevitable. Kitchen remodels are also expensive but may add value to your home. Consider these ideas for your kitchen upgrade.

Cabinet and drawer faces take up most of the visual space in a kitchen. Choose a durable finish for long-lasting cabinets.

New appliances

A kitchen remodel may be several years down the line from your first kitchen construction. Your existing kitchen may be fitted with old appliances that take up too much space or guzzle too much electricity making for big electricity bills. Since you’re renovating your kitchen, consider buying new appliances or at least put in provisions with newer kitchen appliances in mind.

Modern designs

The everyday use of the kitchen can leave wear and tear marks on kitchen surfaces such as cabinets and drawers. Use heavy-duty materials for a long-lasting kitchen upgrade. You may also opt for modern cabinets with soft-closing doors and drawers for a luxury kitchen experience. 

Hardware update

Knobs and handles for drawers and cabinets make up a big part of kitchen design. Unless you’re creating a period style kitchen, it’s best to go for streamlined designs as these are versatile and trendy.

Storage potential

Maximize your kitchen storage. The good thing with a kitchen remodel is that you’ve already had experience using your old kitchen design. Retain storage types that are suitable for your kitchen workflow, and get rid of storage options that don’t work. 

Open shelving

Consider using open shelves in your kitchen design. Open shelves create a feeling of openness in the room, which works particularly well for small kitchens as in condos. Open shelves may be used for storing spices and other small items. 

Cabinet facing

Cabinet and drawer faces take up most of the visual space in a kitchen. Choose a durable finish for long-lasting cabinets. There are already many materials available on the market from melamine to frosted glass. 

Countertop choices

Kitchen countertops play into the functionality of a kitchen. Countertops are the primary workspaces in the kitchen. When choosing a countertop material, consider its resistance to heat, water and chopping.
