If you are considering a kitchen remodeling project, that is great- but really only the beginning. You need a newly-done space , because yours is out of date and inefficient. But what should you have in its place? Now that is a tough question! Any remodeling work to your home should be a reflection of you and your tastes. That means what is right for someone else’s kitchen may not be perfect for you. With that being said, often times it is helpful to take a look at the most popular options and go from there.
Right now, these six options are the most sought-after for homeowners looking to redo their kitchen:
#1 Farmhouse Sink. When you have a lot of pots and pans to clean, you need a serious sink to help you. That is only part of the reason why farmhouse sinks are becoming more common. Farmhouse sinks offer both stylistic and functional benefits! Their large size and apron fronts gives this sink an iconic look, while easily accommodating large dishes and pans, oversized cutting boards, and other kitchen essentials. This sink looks fantastic and makes cleaning up after a meal easier!
#2 Tile Flooring. The floor goes a long way toward the look and feel of a room. For this reason, many people choose to redo their floors during a remodel. Here in Southwest Florida, tile is far and away the most popular option. It looks great, keeps the home cool, and is easy to clean up. Plus, there are so many colors and styles to choose from!
#3 Quartz Countertops. Your countertops will make a big impression and add to the value to your home. For that reason, your choice in countertops is absolutely crucial. Quartz is a wonderful option, and beginning to rival Granite in popularity. While they are similar, there is a difference between Quartz and Granite. The biggest difference is that Quartz is not porous and therefore doesn’t need the kind of maintenance, like re-sealing, that Granite does.
#4 Luxury Vinyl Flooring. Tile isn’t the only popular option for kitchen flooring, though. Luxury vinyl flooring is becoming increasingly popular because of how classy, yet affordable it is. If you opt for this type of vinyl, you can choose a wood or even stone style and your kitchen will look absolutely stunning! No one will know you didn’t pay for the real thing!
#5 Range Hood. A range hood sends air outside through a duct, meaning it gets rid of cooking odors and filters out heat, smoke, grease, and moisture. This means you can make “smelly” dishes like fish and veggies, without the odor. Plus, you won’t be sweating while you do it. No wonder they are so popular!
#6 Open Concept. Just because your home was built several decades ago and not in a floor plan you love doesn’t mean you are stuck with it. Our Remodeling Team can come in and give you the open concept kitchen you’ve always wanted! This way, you can be more actively involved in what is going on outside of the kitchen while you prepare the food.
