Five Kitchen Renovation Ideas For Your Next Project

Whether it is for cooking, entertaining or family socializing, the kitchen is the center of a home. It is by far the most used space in a house, and as such, it is important that your kitchen is functional as well as a beautiful flowing and inviting space.

If you’re looking to update your kitchen this year, here are 5 kitchen renovation ideas that’ll help to make your kitchen pop:

Liven It Up With A Backsplash

A backsplash takes up a lot of visual real estate in the kitchen, and it is your opportunity to showcase your taste and style. It is a fun addition to any kitchen that can tie everything together.

Want to inject some character into your kitchen? Add a chic and trendy full slab backsplash. Keep things minimal with white subway tiles or push the boundaries by mixing and matching different tiles. If budget isn’t a concern, you could even get a custom-designed backsplash made of tile or glass. No matter what you decide, remember to choose a backsplash that complements your cabinetry.

Brighten Up Your Kitchen With New Lighting

Lighting is one of the first things that people notice when they walk into a kitchen, and it is a great way to quickly update your kitchen’s look. Invest in one standout piece of lighting for your kitchen. Once this is in place, add other complementary lighting elements. For example, you could brighten up countertops with undercabinet lighting, or you can add warmth to your room with track lighting or semi-flush ceiling lights. You can also add a stylish lighting fixture over your kitchen island, sink or breakfast nook.

Refresh Your Kitchen With New Cabinets

Changing your kitchen cabinets will undoubtedly have the greatest impact on the overall look and feel of your kitchen space. While being a very practical kitchen renovation idea, it is also an investment opportunity, as up-to-date kitchen cabinets will increase the value of your home. If you are looking for more cabinet space, consider installing tall cabinets (42 inches or more) or double cabinetry. Cabinets with metal or mirrored finishes are also a great way to enhance your kitchen.

Make A Statement With A Kitchen Island

If you don’t have one already, a kitchen island is an absolute must. It can be the centerpiece of your kitchen, and it is a great space for cooking and gathering.  Your kitchen island should be positioned so that it faces out into the communal living areas. If you like to show off your chef skills, put your cooking surface on the island. You can also transform your kitchen island into a piece of furniture by adding extra seating and a recess for leg room.

Add Style & Durability With New Countertops

Personalize your kitchen with new countertops that are sleek, stylish and composed of hardwearing surfaces. Countertops made of natural stone are lovely; however, if your kitchen counters are going to be getting some serious use, it may be better to consider a more durable fabricated material such as quartz.
