Kitchen Remodeling Ideas You’ll Enjoy for Years

kitchen remodeling ideas

Good planning opens the doors to a future of enjoyment in your kitchen.

When paging through the latest kitchen remodeling catalogues or going through Pinterest, it can be easy to get swept up in trendy kitchen designs that are popular today but will be stale within a year. Most Americans have the budget to remodel their kitchens once, so you have to get it right the first time. Opt for a timeless design and choose key kitchen features from these kitchen remodeling ideas that will stay beautiful, keep their usefulness, and maintain their value over time.

Keep it Bright

White is hands down the most marketable color for your kitchen. Year after year, white has topped the National Kitchen and Bath Association’s annual survey of kitchen colors, making it a safe and timeless choice. Why white? It reflects light and makes smaller kitchens feel larger and cleaner. It’s also easy to match. Regardless of your colorful kitchen remodeling ideas, you will always be able to find white cabinets, tiles, counters, faucets, sinks, and appliances.

Shoulda Coulda Hardwood-a

Hardwood flooring is an incredibly popular and beautiful choice for your kitchen remodeling. It’s easy to obtain and can be purchased at many different price points. Over half of homebuyers who bought a home without hardwood flooring say they would’ve paid over $2,000 extra to have them. Your hardwood floors make your home feel warmer, cozier, and more inviting. It can also match whatever kitchen style you love, whether it’s rustic Italian of fifties kitsch.

Keep It Simple with Shaker Cabinets

Shaker style cabinets are instantly recognizable for their clean, simple, and classic design. They reduce the busyness in your kitchen and instantly calm down an otherwise cluttered room. They match well with any style, whether you prefer a traditional or modern look.

Add Some Panache to Your Backsplash

Subway tiles are the classic white 3-by-6-inch rectangular tiles that have lined American kitchens and baths for decades. While colorful and elaborate backsplashes go in and out of style as tastes change, crisp white subway tiles will always compliment your kitchen remodeling ideas.

Store Smart

Families are using more storage than ever. The average family stores almost fifty percent of their kitchen items outside of the kitchen. You’re not the only one with casserole dishes in the linen closet and a food processor on a bookshelf in the basement! As Americans have started shopping at warehouse stores and moved to more open kitchen formats, cabinet space previously occupied by dishes is now taken up by food.

The solution isn’t necessarily to minimize stuff, even though that’s the current trend. The smartest kitchen remodeling solution is to incorporate smart storage into your design. Cabinets can be outfitted with shelves and compartments that unfold, turn, and slide.
