What Makes an Ideal Kitchen Renovation?Blog | August 31st, 2017
When it comes to kitchen renovations you can rarely go wrong, but the options are innumerable. You want to make sure that is not only looks amazing now, but that it will remain a stylish option for the years to come. You have to do this on a budget, so what decisions are safe?
We all know that white is a classic and timeless color, but it can be a bit tough to keep clean. However, with the right splashback and durable tiles you can pull it off. Grab yourself a few remodeling books and start grabbing ideas, but don’t go color crazy. The last thing you want ids to be repainting when the next seasons color hits the scene. Always think yellows, pastels, white when it comes to painting. You want a timeless looking kitchen; after all, it is one of the most expensive home renovations.
So, play it safe, go with the white paint and get yourself a nice glass splashback or one with the LED lighting. You can get really creative with your splashbacks nowadays. They are really about a lot more than spill proofing that’s for sure. You can play it safe and go with a metal or a tile backsplash too if you prefer. This and in your flooring or cabinetry is where you will see your color come into play. Some choose timber because of its classic and timeless style.
You can think about the knobs, handles and how your backsplash will bring out the tiles you choose for the floor. Maybe even a middle of the wall boarder or ceiling meets wall boarder can add a touch of color. The idea though is to keep it simple and clean letting each addition compliment rather than override the next.
Glass from shelves is a bit risky. But a lot of people are choosing them for added style. Hard wood flooring is a classic as well, and it adds both style and value to any home. There are even synthetic versions available that are kitchen friendly to boot. There are many different types of flooring that are or resemble hard wood at very affordable prices, and these look amazing with almost any style.
Another thing that can be purchased relatively affordably now is marble or marble looking countertops. This, like hard wood and white paint, is a classic. Just be sure that you are choosing a good marble appearance to highlight the added color from the handles, floor, backsplash and the curtains that you are going to add as well. Some people like the subway tiles which can give that old classic look. When it comes to kitchen countertops, there are several options to choose from, like marble, granite, caesarstone, stainless, hardwood, tiles, etc… and this will depend on your taste and your budget.
Let geometry play. Sometimes it is not about color as much as design. Having different cabinets that are falling at different types is fun and modern. Don’t be afraid to play with the measurements and stray away from the old uniform cabinetry. Also, go ahead and shoot for that island! This frees enough space while adding modern style. Plus, you can hang pots and pans above it for a real authentic and classic kitchen look while mixing a lot of modern style into the mix.
There are so many options to choose from when you have enough budget to spend.
