The kitchen is the heart of the home. It’s likely one of the most popular rooms in your house. It’s where you cook, share a meal, and chat with friends and family. The kitchen must always look fresh, neat, and welcoming.

As professionals in home renovation, we can advise you on the best design to adopt and make them a reality in your kitchen. In fact, here are some kitchen renovation styles you can consider. Keep in mind that these are just some ideas. As we explained in our process, we emphasize the importance of listening to our clients and making sure to make their dreams a reality. In case you need some more ideas, we can certainly help.

Kitchen Renovation Ideas to Consider

1. New cabinets can do wonders!

We always advise our clients to start with the kitchen cabinets. They have the most impact on the overall look and feel of the kitchen. Updating your cabinets by refacing them or replacing them altogether will change the look of the kitchen. Many people choose to reface cabinets that are still in good shape but seem out of style. However, for those who choose to replace them, there are many styles of cabinets you can browse through our catalogues. That would be the best place to start.

2. Choosing your colours

The colour of the kitchen is one thing many people tend to dismiss. The truth is it can make quite the difference in the look and atmosphere. There are numerous options to consider, and keep in mind that trends come and go. One option to choose from is using a black and white theme. When used together properly, they can produce some exceptional results. Also, you could always add accent pieces to make your kitchen unique. One idea is to use a hanging rack in your kitchen for function and style.

3. Refresh your countertops

The countertops tend to take the largest surface area of any kitchen, so it’s usually a must to change them whenever you are renovating. There are many options of materials to choose from. Depending on the client’s needs, budget, and preference we might offer butcher block countertops with natural wood grain. It’s a bit hard to maintain, but it adds a rustic charm to the kitchen. Other options include granite, marble, or quartz. They tend to add a sort of timeless elegance to the room.

4. The appliances might need a change

New appliances can make the world of a difference. We always advise our clients to ensure their appliances match the rest of the kitchen, once it is renovated. With that said, if the kitchen appliances are in good condition and they match the new design, there is no need to upgrade them. One last thing to think of is that new devices will usually look better, and they’ll also add improved functionality to the kitchen.

5. A wood kitchen island would look great!

Another kitchen renovation idea to consider is adding a kitchen island. An island adds more counter space for cooking and can increase the number of seats in the room. There are different kitchen islands to choose from, but we normally recommend an island with cabinets underneath and overhanging on one or multiple sides. As a home renovation company, we offer different crafts and designs for you to choose from. The right island for your kitchen depends on the space available, your preference, and budget.

6. Flooring is crucial

There are many trends in kitchen flooring, including: wood, ceramic tiles, or porcelain tiles. Redoing the flooring could be just what your kitchen needs. We have refinished and installed flooring for many previous clients and it was just what was needed to improve the looks of the kitchen. The styles for flooring vary and are plenty. We have many samples that we can show you to help you with choosing a style that is right for your kitchen renovations

7. Lighting can make a difference

Many people tend to go for the same style of lighting in the entire room. This is not a bad idea, but it can become boring. Adding different lights in the same place is a new trend which adds spice and elegance. You’re going to need expert designers to make this work. Our company offers different design options to make the various aspects of your kitchen stand out. For instance, we use decorative lightings like pendant lights to make a particular section of the kitchen stand out. Pot lights are also a great idea that adds both functionality and great looks.

8. Take advantage of your space

There usually is plenty of unused space in many kitchens. By using specialized cabinets and drawers, this space can be utilized appropriately. As part of our kitchen renovation ideas, we add functionality by using the available space in your kitchen. For instance, long narrow sliding cupboards can be installed in the space between your fridge and countertop. This space can be used to place your utensils at an easy to reach length.

What to consider when renovating your kitchen

Many kitchen renovation ideas can be used to make your kitchen look better. What we can advise you is to always hire a professional home renovation company for the best results. That should be the first step. The company can help guide and support you in the kitchen renovation process.
