Kitchen Renovation Ideas

Kitchen RemodelingPlanning a kitchen renovation is exciting but also daunting, since there are so many ideas and possibilities to choose from. However, in spite of the wide range of trends and styles available, the main priorities for most kitchen remodels remain the same: functionality, convenience, style, and affordability. Here are some tips for making your kitchen upgrade a success.

Use cabinet glass.
Refurbishing your old cabinets with glass fronts allows you to save money while beautifully updating your kitchen. Sheets of pristine glass will instantly refresh the cupboards, and you don’t have to pay for brand new cabinetry. Cabinet glass is typically clear, frosted, or patterned.
   -  Clear cabinet glass has contemporary charm that can turn a dated kitchen into a trendy, transitional space. It also makes it easy to show off fragile items, such as china dishes, while still keeping them behind closed doors.
   -  Frosted glass is a great pick if your goal is preserving the traditional style of your vintage cabinetry. It gives the cupboard doors a makeover without necessarily modernizing their look. This glass can also be used in a kitchen along with clear glass, for instance on cabinets that house less attractive items which you don’t wish to put on display.
   -  Like frosted glass, patterned cabinet glass gives cabinets a new look while obscuring the view of what’s behind it. Many different patterns are available, so you can find glass that will enhance your décor whether it’s contemporary, traditional, or something in between.

Pair high-end countertops with an attractive backsplash.

Today’s choices in countertops allow for looks that range from natural to industrial. Eco-friendly concrete counters are rising in popularity, while granite remains a favorite natural surface. Whatever countertops you select, be sure to complement them with an amazing backsplash. 

Three choices to consider are:
   -  Ceramic, porcelain, or stone tile – This is a classic choice available in a ton of looks and designs.
   -  Glass tile – These tiles can be utilized for the entire backsplash, or they can be interspersed with stone, porcelain, or ceramic tiles like colorful seashells strewn on a sandy beach.
   -  Back-painted glass backsplash – Strips of back-painted glass can be used to create a modern backsplash with a seamless look. Alternatively, this colorful glass can be cut into smaller pieces and arranged to form a mosaic-type backsplash that serves as the kitchen’s visual focal point.

Make a statement with lighting.
Carefully chosen light fixtures give your kitchen a designer feel. Options to consider include:
   -  Hanging lights over a bar or island.
   -  Recessed lighting above key workspaces.
   -  An eye-catching chandelier.
   -  Under cabinet lighting to brightly illumine counter space.
