Being Flexible Works in Your Favor: The first step to a successful kitchen remodeling project is evaluating your needs and planning a space that you maximize to its fullest potential.  From cabinets to flooring to appliances, it’s to the homeowner’s benefit to be open to modifications to the original plan as the project progresses.  It’s highly likely that once your kitchen is completely gutted, you may have additional ideas that you want to incorporate.  It’s perfectly acceptable to pause the project for a couple days to evaluate your current direction and make any beneficial project modifications that you deem necessary after evaluate all the open space you have to work with.  This can prevent regret and ensure you end up with the kitchen of your dreams.kitchen

What’s Trending: Nowadays, the kitchen is an integral part of a home’s entertaining space and the less walls on the main floor, the better!  Hands down, the most popular color for this year’s kitchens is gray.  Touchless faucet technology has gotten more advanced and less cost-prohibitive and many homeowners are seeking this feature out.  Opt for a reputable company, like Kohler, and skip the bargain bin which will only leave you disappointed with parts that break easily and finishes that simply don’t last.

Dream Appliances: With the shelf life of appliances increasing, it’s important to invest in something that will work for you both now and in the future.  More and more homeowners are electing for industrial appliances and there’s been a shift to standalone refrigerators and freezers.  Wine refrigerators are also becoming more commonplace.

Here’s Why Quality Materials & Installation Techniques Are Key Components of a Kitchen Renovation:

Countertops: The countertop you decide on should take into consideration your personal tastes, budget and cooking & entertaining habits.  Popular choices include butcher block, granite, cement & quartz.  On a budget?  No worries.  Laminate has become a very dependable and stylish choice, as have granite overlays.
