Install Smart Fixtures and Appliances
The best way to modernize your kitchen during the remodel is to add innovative technology features, also known as a “smart kitchen.” Technology has made its way into all aspects of the kitchen, including the fixtures and appliances. For example, adding light sensors with your kitchen lighting allows for a unique design that you, your family and your guests are certain to appreciate.
You can also implement smart kitchen appliances. Smart refrigerators, microwaves, ovens, sinks and other appliances can reduce energy waste and save you money long-term, among other innovative features. Other unique smart add-ons for your kitchen include motion-sensored kitchen faucets, programmed coffee makers that have your coffee ready when you wake up, smart refrigerators that alert you when certain foods go bad or you are running low on certain foods, and more. You can also connect your kitchen lighting and fixtures to your smart device as well.
Add an Island With Dining Space
Islands are becoming more commonplace in kitchens. This is because kitchen islands are attractive and practical. They take up a focal point in the kitchen, drawing the attention of guests as they are generally located in the center of the room. In addition, they are incredibly practical, particularly when they include a dining space. This can include attractive bar stools or chairs that appropriately match the kitchen color scheme.
Kitchen islands can be useful for eating breakfast with family members, hosting wine gatherings with friends and much more. When choosing the right kitchen island, consider your specific purpose and preference for the island. Be sure to choose the dimensions wisely, leaving plenty of space on each side for walking room.
Go With Wooden Flooring
Choosing the flooring is often difficult during a kitchen remodel. The flooring you choose could add great value to your kitchen, and the right flooring can last for more than a decade if cared for properly. In general, it is recommended to go with wooden flooring. This is because the flooring material is durable, good-looking and easy to care for long-term. Of course, there are various types of wooden flooring to consider. Most notably, wooden flooring types that work well for the kitchen include:
- Solid timber
Each type of wooden flooring has pros and cons that make it unique. It is best to discuss all options with a kitchen remodeling contractor to determine which option works best for you. They can consider your style of kitchen, your preference for flooring and your budget, and they can recommend the type of kitchen floorings that meets your needs the best.
Use Contrasting Countertops and Cabinets
During a kitchen remodel, the colors you choose matter. It is important to understand the variety of color options that you have available to you and which color options might work best for your countertops and cabinets. There is also a trend towards contrasting colors for your countertops and cabinets. For example, matching green and blue color shades to achieve a more modern and bold look for your kitchen. Of course, every kitchen is different, and the types of colors that work best for your kitchen depend on your style preference.
Update the Shelving and Storage Space
The design of the shelving and storage space is also a crucial step in the kitchen remodel process. You should consider the practicality of certain shelving and storage options as well as the design. For example, if you want a more modern look, then you may consider open shelves. This also works well for a minimalist look, although you may need extra storage space in doing so. You should also take into consideration the type of shelving doors (if applicable) and how much (if any) additional storage space you need to implement.
