Tips for a Great Kitchen Remodel

One of the best ways to get an amazing job on your kitchen remodeling is to know what you need and want in your kitchen. Is there something you need for functionality that’s a must-have? What about a particular look you know you want more than anything else?

Take some time to think about all of the things you want, then write them down. You and your contractor can discuss them to prioritize and come up with ways to incorporate what you want into a cohesive space.

Ideas for Kitchen Remodeling

Not sure where to start or what to look for on your “wants” list? Take a look at a couple of these ideas by a homeowner who knew exactly what they wanted!

Open Up. More modern floor plans have open spaces and fewer walls between rooms, but that wasn’t the case in the past. Older homes still incorporated closed-off kitchens and dining rooms.

If this isn’t your style, taking out a wall might be an important part of your remodel. Opening up your kitchen can be a huge benefit!

In the picture above, the homeowner had the wall replaced with a peninsula that carries on the functionality and space of the kitchen without closing it off.

Look Up! If light—especially natural light—is a problem in your kitchen, there are a few ways to fix that. Adding a window (or more window) is an option, but you could run into less storage space if you add new windows, and for a small kitchen, that would be a big loss.

Alternatively, you can add a skylight. Not only is it an interesting, refreshing look for a kitchen, it provides light without being in the way!

Put it Up. One of the things that helps a contractor when making your design is knowing the things you need in your space to make it fully functional, and that includes storage space.

Many homeowners actually underestimate the amount of storage they’ll need in their kitchen by a considerable amount, so consult with your contractor and be honest about your needs. If your current kitchen is overflowing with food and kitchen tools, you might want to plan a built-in pantry and more cabinet space, for instance.

The most important part of any remodel is getting what you want out of it—after all, it’s your kitchen!
