Features to Enhance the Look of your Kitchen

The kitchen is one of the most used rooms in the home and its the space where the family gathers regularly so functionality is key. Homeowners tend to invest in the kitchen renovation to increase the value and aesthetics of the home. Here are some features to consider when preparing for an upgrade.

Tip 1: Choose Eye-Catching

Cabinet & Backsplash Designs

  • Use quality tile backsplash to prevent moisture & grime from damaging the kitchen

  • Save money by spraying the existing cabinets to update the color.

  • If the cabinets are damaged or being slowly eaten by termites, then its definitely time to replace them with new ones.

  • Consider having your cabinets built with soft-close hinges.

  • Choose light colors to make the kitchen brighter and appear larger.

  • Ceiling height cabinets make the kitchen look high end & significantly increases storage space especially for small kitchens.

Your backsplash & Cabinetry takes up a lot of space in the kitchen and they are usually the first thing you notice when entering the kitchen, so why not give them a facelift or replace them with a more modern style. Here are a few examples.

Tip 2: Kitchen Island, Countertops & Lighting

  • Choose unique lighting fixtures to make the space look grand & stylish.

  • Recessed (pocket) lights look sleek and are energy efficient.

  • If there's enough space for an island, then this is a great feature to enhance the look of the kitchen and provide great functionality.

  • The island should be highlighted with at least 1 unique pendant light, this change will make quite a statement in your kitchen

  • Choose quality countertops that will withstand the test of time & constant exposure to harsh elements & activities while cooking.

The kitchen island offers additional countertop space & great functionality. Many renovation projects include removing kitchen walls to create a more open concept where the kitchen will be a part of the dining or living room.

Tip 3: Stainless Steel Appliances

Stainless steel appliances are must haves in a newly updated kitchen. You will find appliances that are sleek, energy saving, easy to clean and durable. The technology is always improving and the great thing about technology is that the more its around, the less expensive it becomes. You'll easily find efficient appliances that will fit into your budget and of course

they add a modern feel to your kitchen.

Tip 6: Faucets Sinks & Hardware

  • Always choose quality fixtures for your kitchen.

  • The size and style of the sink depends on what will work best with your lifestyle.

  • Gooseneck faucets are popular because they're placed higher above the sink for extra space.

  • Touchless faucets save water & reduce the spread of germs.

  • Pull-out faucets are better for shallow sinks

  • Pull-down faucets work best with deeper sinks because the height makes it easier to fill tall pots and cookware.
