The kitchen is the main room in almost any home. It’s where you cook and where family and friends congregate to discuss the day’s events. If your kitchen has seen better days, there are many ways you can update it to achieve a clean, sleek and functional space. A complete kitchen renovation can run anywhere from $20,000 to $50,000. dollars. This large difference in the amount factors into the equation whether or not you can work with the current design and flow. If you are looking to expand the size by knocking out a wall and changing the location of the existing plumbing the job will cost much more. Of course, there are ways to spend less using the original design and refacing the existing cabinets.

Your kitchen should be warm and inviting. It should also have your unique style. Aside from selecting the cabinets, countertops give the space a finished and elegant touch. There are many types to choose from, including Corian, granite, laminates, ceramic tile, concrete, stone, marble and stainless steel. Some are more expensive due to their stain and scratch resistance and mirror appearance. Before purchasing it’s best to review each one to see which one offers the best fit for your budget.

When it comes to the appliances, if the budget warrants this is a place where lowering your standards may come back to haunt you. While you might think you can get by and upgrade to a better more efficient model at a later date, in the end, it’s just going to cost you more money. Do you have a large family or entertain often? These are just a few of the things you need to take into consideration. A range can have anywhere from four to six burners with a griddle in the middle. You can go with a Dutch, confectionery or traditional oven. Do you want your freezer on the top, side or bottom of your refrigerator? For a little more you can have your dream kitchen with all the bells and whistles making your time in the kitchen enjoyable.

If the size of your space permits, a kitchen island adds both style and function. It gives you additional counter space you can use for both preparing meals and entertaining guests. Many of these islands have a separate sink ideal for washing fruits and vegetables along with numerous drawers for creating a neat and organized space. You can also accessorize by adding comfortable counter stools, instantly achieving a breakfast bar.

Cabinets come in a wide range of styles, materials, and colors. You can find them in a variety of woods such as ash, cherry, birch, pine, oak, and maple. You can also have your cabinets made of laminate or thermofoil. Since wood warps easily it’s best to purchase cabinets that have a stain finish on all sides. Many cabinet packages include several options for accessories including glass inserts, open shelves or interior storage such as a lazy Susan. Since you will use them daily, it’s a good idea to shop around and check out a large selection before committing to a specific design.

 

In addition to updating old appliances and cabinetry, bringing in subtle and functional accessories adds the perfect finishing touch to your space, tying the entire space together as one. Items such as pendant, recessed or under cabinet lighting, Roman shades or decorative curtains, a backsplash or new paint color. Deciding to remodel your kitchen can be a worthwhile experience that not only creates a place where you enjoy spending time but, will also add value to your home.
