Kitchen renovation is often a fun and exciting project to take on, as this is your chance to turn your creative vision of your domestic oasis into reality. As promising as it sounds, kitchen renovation, like other home renovation or home addition jobs, comes with some hassle.
To help you maximize the functional and financial return of your next kitchen renovation budget, our team of professionals at Milman Design & Build has put together this guide, a compilation of ideas that won’t disappoint you and your family.
Paint Your Kitchen an Inspired Colour
Colour is the spice of life, in this case, your kitchen life. Picking the perfect colour palette doesn’t make your kitchen feel refreshing and lively, but it can result in great return value. Plus, repainting is among the inexpensive options when it comes to home renovation, kitchen renovation is no exceptions. For little more than the cost of paint and a few tools, you can majorly dial up the wow factor on your kitchen. If you’re looking to turn your kitchen into a timeless piece, then an all-white scheme is the prime option to go for. Or take the opposite tack and go chic with a black kitchen. Feng shui-inspired kitchen colors keep things cool, relaxed, and neutral. When choosing a colour for your kitchen becomes a challenging task, don’t hesitate to consult a custom home renovation firm. Milman Design Build team has experienced working on different custom home additions and renovation projects and will work with you to pick out the best layout for your kitchen.
Upgrade Your Kitchen Cabinets
Cabinets, despite being among the most-used appliances in your kitchen, are often neglected when it comes to kitchen renovation. So, to attract maximum value in your kitchen remodel, put cabinets at the top of your list.
Updating your kitchen cabinets doesn’t always have to mean tearing out and replacing your current cabinets, though in some real estate markets, full replacement may be necessary. Updating and upgrading can be as simple and inexpensive as painting your cabinets. Or exercise your creative chops with fun, low-cost kitchen DIY projects like handcrafted wood cabinet pulls.
A step up, both in terms of cost and buyer appeal, is cabinet refacing. Refacing means replacing cabinets’ most visually prominent area, the cabinet doors and drawer fronts. A technician applies real wood veneer to the side of the cabinet boxes. The finishing touch that pulls the project together: new cabinet fixtures.
Add An Eye-catching Backsplash
A kitchen backsplash is the ideal element to add or upgrade in terms of investment since initial cost is low while the visual impact is high. Today, the backsplash is regarded as a key design element in a kitchen remodel, and a great deal of thought and planning go into the choice of materials and the design of the surface.
Traditional ceramic tile certainly still has its place-especially when it is stylishly planned with striking colors. But in today’s kitchens, a large variety of non-traditional tiles are also possible, ranging from natural stones to glass and metal tiles.
Change Things Up With Quartz Counter-tops
If there is one counter-top material that always leads the pack, it is quartz A hybrid of minerals and resins, quartz is a nearly perfect material for countertops. It looks like natural stone but is harder than natural stone. It is as impermeable as solid surface but it won’t scratch like a solid surface. This chameleon of surfaces can take on different personalities, too, adopting everything from a traditional stone-like appearance to the trendy and industrial look of concrete. Best of all, quartz is non-porous, making it easier to clean and maintain.
Hang Some Fantastic Pendant Lights
Kitchen lighting, often ignored, deserves the spotlight. Not only does a well-designed lighting package illuminate your beautiful kitchen, but the lighting itself can also become an object of attention. Unlike that other kitchen standby, recessed lighting, pendant lighting announces itself front and center.
Be sure to scale the size of the pendants to your kitchen, and avoid overwhelming the space.
Innovative Storage Solution
Kitchen is one of the areas where the clutters tend to build up the most. So innovative storage solutions that saves you space are in demand. These new and effective solutions include hanging hooks inside one of your larger cabinets, or cabinets that run flush with your counter-tops to hide appliances such as microwaves.
