It is where we prepare food, wash dishes, eat and socialize. It’s the center of the house, the nerve center if you will, and the place where everyone inevitably ends up, whether you’re hosting a dinner party or just a regular Tuesday dinner.
It is your kitchen and it should reflect your personality and tastes like any other room in the house. They say the kitchen is one of the most important rooms in any home and it’s no wonder it’s the busiest, the messiest, and usually the one that houses the most “stuff.” With so many options available, it’s hard to narrow down what you want in a dream kitchen, so here are some ideas to help you.
A kitchen island can be a godsend, especially if you need more counter space and storage. An island can be mobile or fixed and can even offer a different space for your sink. They’re great places to store items, great areas for a breakfast bar or a place to do homework, and complete the look of the kitchen while being ultra-functional in the process.
Custom cabinets can make your space shine and use every inch of space you want as they are built on a project by project basis. If you want towering cabinets that reach the ceiling, that’s what you get, if you need a slim slider for trays and flat items that fit in just the right place, you can get that too. All personalized, all just for you. A wonderful addition to any kitchen.
Sun Rooms are great additions to any kitchen, doubling as dining rooms or breakfast nooks. Imagine your kitchen flooded with light and with all that extra space for entertaining or just enjoying the outdoors from inside. Most of today’s sunrooms can be used year-round and add all important square footage to your home, regardless of where they are located. Since kitchens get used so much, it’s always a good plan to create more space in there.
New hardware. While it may seem like a simple thing, getting new hardware for existing cabinets can make your entire kitchen look new again. Going one step further and updating the cabinets can also alter the entire look of the room, and getting new lighting fixtures and/or plumbing fixtures can also transform the look without breaking the budget.
