A kitchen renovation improves the functionality, design and appearance of your kitchen. If you want a new kitchen, consider implementing the following ideas:
You can update your kitchen by purchasing a backsplash. A backsplash is available in different materials from glass, stone and wood. The best material for a backsplash is ceramic or glass due to the ease of cleanliness, heat resistance and aesthetic element. Glass splashbacks reflect light and enhance the natural light in a kitchen. They protect your walls from any spills and heat damage during cooking. They are easy to install and are customisable to match your kitchen décor.
If you have a few necessary DIY skills, you can update your kitchen cabinets by giving them a fresh coat of paint. For a modern look, consider using neutral or bright colours. You can also decide to change the design of your cabinets by adopting open shelving. Open shelves act as a display space for your kitchen products. You can also consider installing low shelves that are more easily reachable.
Countertops do wonders for a new kitchen design. A good idea is to buy a countertop for your permanent home rather than a rental if you ever need to move. You should also consider how often you use your kitchen. If you love cooking, buy a countertop that is durable, stain-resistant and easy to maintain. Your budget will also determine the type of countertop you can afford. Prices include the cost of material and installation that will vary depending on supplier and installer.
One idea for a kitchen renovation is to update the existing appliances. While buying new appliances may account for a big part of your renovation budget, it will be worth it. Modern appliances have better energy-efficient ratings that will decrease your utility bills. Old appliances might be the reason for high electricity bills. New appliances are also an excuse for new cabinets but ensure you pick out appliances beforehand to allow custom measurements for your cabinets.
Updating your existing flooring will give your kitchen a new look. However, as you update your flooring, consider maintaining your current floor layout. Changing your floor layout will increase renovation bills, as the plumber will have to change the location of the plumbing system. A good flooring option is a hardwood that gives a traditional look and is durable and easy to clean.
