Remodeling Ideas for the Kitchen That Needs an Uplift 

If you sense your kitchen is in need of some remodeling, but you are not sure what, check out some of today’s most popular trends. Kitchen remodeling is not just about trends, of course, as homeowners seek more than just what’s ‘in-style.’ Homeowners want their kitchens to reflect their home, to be practical, functional, and beautiful simultaneously. So how do you do that? 

#1) Bold Cabinet Designs 

Hands down, the most significant way to revitalize your kitchen design is through the cabinets. Whether you have an older model kitchen or a newer layout, the cabinets likely make up a large percentage of the visual surface area. This means that replacing these with eye-catching bold cabinets will completely transform your kitchen. You can try dark and classy cherry wood cabinets, white cabinets, or other softwood. 

#2) Flow and Floor Plan Considerations

Another way to change things up in your kitchen is the floor plan. This might mean implementing an open floor plan or adding a kitchen island. While changing the floor plan might seem straightforward, you always want to consider how that will shift the “flow” of your kitchen. “Flow” is a term used in the industry to refer to how the space changes to accommodate the movement of people. If you’re changing the floor plan of your kitchen, you want to closely consider how busy the kitchen gets, how people normally move around the kitchen and the kind of atmosphere you want to create. 

#3) Implement New Lighting and Fixtures 

Even a small amount of neatly placed illumination can impact the atmosphere of a space. Changing the light fixtures and types of lightbulbs and strategically placing them breathes new inspiration into the room. Consider adding glass fixtures, chandeliers, pendants, sconces, or track lighting. Simply adding some ambient lighting and glowing fixtures creates a little more ambiance in your kitchen. 

#4) Add Cabinet Space and Storage Space 

In the age of minimalism, storage space is in. While popular design dictates that you want your countertops and kitchen islands to have minimal clutter, that means that toasters and blenders need to be stored away somewhere. That’s where storage space comes in. Whether you’re looking to install a kitchen island with cabinets or add new storage space along the walls, you want that added space to count. You can add hanging shelves if you lack the space or add some custom cabinets and drawers. 

#5) Paint, Wallpaper, and Backsplashes

Adding a little color might be the answer to sprucing up your kitchen. Whether you choose to repaint the entire kitchen to a more modern shade or you want to implement some wallpaper as a throwback to the 1960s and 70s, there is plenty you can do to add some color. A tile backsplash, for example, can be strategically placed in your kitchen near places that capture the most moisture or grease—such as behind the stove. This minimal upgrade can help breathe new color into your kitchen while helping protect the paint underneath. 

#6) Replace Appliances and Hardware

An old grimy stove can be a sore sight for the rest of your kitchen. Replacing the refrigerator or the stove can make a considerable difference to the function and feel of your kitchen. After all, the devil is in the details, and your faucet handles and hardware are details that carry a lot of weight. The metals you use in your kitchen can complement your cabinet colors or other fixtures. Today, there are endless options of different toned metals, shapes, and finishes for your kitchen hardware. Choosing something with just the right touch can go a long way.
