Read This Before You Start Your Kitchen Remodeling Project
When people start plans for a kitchen remodeling project, there are a few different approaches that are taken. Some will grab any and all of the most eye-catching home remodeling publications and tear out or dog-ear all of the best looking pictures. Some will walk into a home design warehouse setting where they can lounge in entirely pre-fabricated rooms, and pick one that feels best. Others, envious of their neighbor’s kitchen, will try to emulate their kitchen for their own space. While there is nothing wrong with any of these approaches (to each, their own), we wanted to add a few points to consider that may help you as you go about your kitchen remodeling project.The Value of a Custom DesignWe live in a fast-paced world with hundreds of one-size-fits-all solutions made available to us for almost anything and everything you can think of. The impact of this on our quality of life runs deep within us, whether we realize it or not. People and moments become as forgettable as the pre-fabricated, cookie-cutter environments that they reside in.Your kitchen is the heart of your home, and should be a space for you and your loved ones to get away from the fast-paced anonymity of today’s world. All of your senses are constantly processing your environment, and affects the way your mind perceives thoughts and shapes memories. You want your kitchen to be as unique and special as you are, so that your shared experiences in your home are truly warm ones.Natural LightNatural light is probably the most desired and positively effective elements in a space. We need natural light for our physical and emotional well-being. Most of us spend much of our days cooped up in an office. You don’t have to feel the same way when you’re at home! Having a skylight installed in your kitchen makes for a livelier, more pleasant space. You will also be able to have enough sunlight in your kitchen to be able to house more plants. Breaking up any space in your home to incorporate more nature elements is probably one of the best design choices you can make!Color & TextureThe selection of colors and textures available can be daunting. Simplify things by first deciding what the general feel you are going for (and stick to your decision). If you want a very rich, deep feel to your kitchen, use contrasting colors and textures such as a very rich walnut colored natural wood, juxtaposed with white cabinetry & white subway tile backs splashing. Details such as sleek, straight stainless steel bar handles and appliances will keep your kitchen remodeling design clean and modern. If you desire a more uniform, open-feeling space, try a lighter to medium color scheme, with less of a contrast.ConclusionWe are here to help you make your dreams a reality.
