Our Top Kitchen Reno Ideas
Updated: Jan 17
Consider Your Space:
The best kitchen bathroom remodel ideas consider the basic functions of the room. Make sure the renovation or remodeling project fulfills one or more of the room's functions. For example, the main functions of the kitchen are preparation, storage and cleaning.
Does the Cook Like a Nook?:
Include a breakfast nook, a type of home improvement that's making a big comeback! Choose a cozy, comfortable and inviting dining area, or a secluded dinette built next to the kitchen; a peaceful retreat for thoughtful contemplation. Both areas offer casual dining and a great family gathering spot that is sure to impress potential buyers. And the design options, traditional or modern, are endless!
The Holy Trinity:
Make sure the classic work triangle is integrated into the kitchen floor plan with the sink, fridge and stove arranged in a triangular pattern. This arrangement saves unnecessary steps while providing ease of movement and convenience.
We Love to Paint:
Add fresh paint, a timely plan that dramatically improves the look of the room, and more that pays for itself when it comes time to sell your home. Think light brown washable wall paint or “tried and true” buttery colors and mossy greens. Stay away from trendy colors that may soon become obsolete.
Cabinets, Cabinets, Cabinets:
Replace old kitchen cabinet doors with quality new doors that are less expensive than complete cabinet replacement, while achieving impressive results that will increase home market value. If your budget allows, do it.
Counters Top it All:
Install a granite or natural stone countertops. Stone worktops installed with quality workmanship enhance the look and feel of the kitchen. They can also be a huge selling point. If you can't afford a real stone countertop, faux stone countertops can be just as attractive and almost as appealing to potential buyers.
Floors You'll Explore:
Replace the old floor with hardwood flooring, or if your budget doesn't allow you to use conventional hardwood, consider laminate or bamboo hardwood flooring. If new floor is completely out of your price range, restoring a hardwood floor is a great option.
I Dare to Say Hardware:
Give the old style of kitchen cabinets a facelift with new kitchen cabinet hardware that updates furniture while improving the look of the kitchen.
