Aspects to Consider When Remodeling Your Kitchen Friday, December 20, 2019

As we enter into 2020, you may want to give your kitchen a new look. While you can get a great ROI from a kitchen remodel, you don't want to dive into it headfirst. Before you begin the process, you should have an idea for what you want for your new kitchen. After all, it's the only place in your house that simultaneously facilitates food preparation, eating, cooking, and socializing.

Here are some factors to consider when remodeling this vital space in your home in Winter Haven, Plant City, Lakeland, and nearby areas of central Florida.

Do you want to expand your current kitchen space?

If you are happy with the current size of your kitchen, we can work with the space available. However, if you want to expand it so you can accommodate more guests and have a bigger cooking and dining area, our team can make the changes necessary. We can knock out a room or expand into a different space. Our expert contractors have the experience necessary to re-do any plumbing work and electrical wiring in accordance with industry standards. Our kitchen remodeling contractors work safely as to not compromise the structural integrity of your home, but we also get the job done efficiently so you and your family can resume your everyday lives.

Can your kitchen hold an island?

If your kitchen doesn't already have an island, you should consider getting one because of the various benefits it offers:

  • More counter space
  • More storage space
  • Possible seating space

However, before you fall in love with the idea of a kitchen island, you need to consider if your current space can hold one. The National Kitchen and Bath Association recommends that if you do have a kitchen island installed, there should be at least 42 inches of working room available. Otherwise, your kitchen area may become cramped and lose its functionality.

If you are unsure if your kitchen can accommodate an island, give us a call and we can evaluate the space you have available.

Consider the new appliances you want for your kitchen.

Some of your current appliances, including microwaves, refrigerators, and ovens, can be transferred over to your new kitchen. However, some of them may need to be replaced due to factors like:

  • Age
  • Functionality
  • Energy efficiency
  • Fuel source (for stoves)
  • How they complement (or don't complement) the design of your new kitchen

What kind of flooring do you want for your new kitchen?

When it comes to flooring, you want to opt for something that's both aesthetically-pleasing and practical. Consider some of the best flooring options available:

  • Cork flooring: Cork flooring is eco-friendly and slip-resistant.
  • Hardwood flooring: Hardwood flooring is great for heavily-trafficked areas and resists moisture well.
  • Vinyl flooring: Vinyl flooring is a cost-efficient option that's easy to maintain.

Consider the material you want for your countertops.

For easy and efficient food prep, it's essential to have sturdy, well-built countertops. Consider some of the materials we can use to construct your countertops:

  • Concrete
  • Quartz
  • Recycled glass
  • Marble
  • Granite

Think about the lighting that you want for your kitchen.

When you are planning a kitchen remodel, don't neglect the lighting you want to be installed. You can illuminate your working space with the following lighting options:

  • Recessed lighting
  • Cabinet lighting
  • Hanging lamp fixtures
  • Spotlights
  • Track lights
  • Dining area fixtures
