A lot of people tune into HGTV to get kitchen remodeling ideas, which is great, and it’s helpful to us when you have an idea of what you want, heading into their project. Kitchen remodeling costs are determined by your ideas, what you want to accomplish, and how you want to get there. Here are some ideas and design trends to help you get started on your kitchen remodel:
- Think outside the box when it comes to back splashes.
Subway tile is still quite popular. Granite and ceramic are also go-to picks. But there are other options you may not know about, like glass that comes in clear, frosted, textured, or etched. There is also mosaic tile that ranges from glass to ceramic, stone, and granite. Ceramic and synthetic tile is less costly, and glass, stone and other more natural materials tend to cost more.
- Consider custom cabinetry.
Wouldn’t it be nice to design your storage space, based on the needs or your family?
Custom cabinetry goes beyond one size fits all. It can include everything from cookie sheet accommodation and pan organization to pantries with pull out drawers, and spice racks. And if you think beyond the kitchen to the mudroom, you could see built-in lockers, designed with bag storage, hangers for hockey sticks, and bags for basket balls.
- Explore colors and materials.
Monochrome kitchens are no longer in style. Homeowners are shifting to a combination of materials, contrasting wood and colors. Cabinets choices are no longer just white, oak or cherry. White remains the most popular color, but we’re also seeing more color, along with stainless steel.
- Islands continue to be the nucleus of the kitchen.
Kitchen islands aren’t going anywhere. Whatever your design style, kitchen islands can be a part of it. Islands are functional, provide good storage, and they bring families together for food, conversation, fun, and games. People love hanging out in the kitchen, and a kitchen island is the perfect spot for it. According to research by Houzz, kitchen islands are one of the most sought-after kitchen upgrades. Their recent study found that 57% of renovating homeowners either add or upgrade an existing kitchen island. Granite, quartz, limestone, laminate, butcher block, and stainless steel are the popular choices for island countertops.
