Kitchen remodeling is no more about shuffling some shelves or adding
a new paint color to the walls. Like any other room of your house,
a kitchen is also about style and luxury. A modern and stylized
kitchen can be the envy of everyone. With attractive decor and different
ideas, kitchen remodeling can be done in a budget now.
Todayís modern day kitchens have broken out of the confinements and now have come out with the modular kitchen concept that are open faced and invite a comfortable ambience for all. The kitchen spaces now open up to an extended dining space giving the entire family an easy communication to everyone else.
So letís look at the different kitchen remodeling tips and ideas and give a completely new look to our kitchens and homes.
One of the easiest ways to brighten up your kitchen space is by giving it lively interiors. Mostly in the modular kitchens the look and feel is blended in with the rest of the living spaces. Your kitchen will incorporate a dining space as well, so keep uniformity but also on the same time break the monotony. One simple tip to do this is by avoiding ceiling touching cabinets that makes the kitchen look closed and stuffy. Keep your kitchen space separate while at the same time keeping it as a part of the entire dining space.
Remodeling an Old Kitchen
If you want to give a fresh look to your already existing kitchen then avoid making solid walls all around. Keep your kitchen adjustable and easy to approach. Have open spaces so that while you cook you can also maintain a conversational contact with your family members and even guests in the close by areas. This will also keep you in a better frame of mind without cutting you off from everyone else. Keep in mind how an island or peninsula works and keep that approach.
Add to the Kitchen Space
While going about kitchen remodeling one can even add to the kitchen space. Go for coffered or pitched ceilings, as this will easily help you to divide the kitchen space from the rest of the house. Also another idea is by having a high ceiling in the kitchen so that it can add to the feel of added space. On the other hand having a low ceiling in the dining area will add to the intimate and cozy ambience of the place.
Kitchen Cabinet Space
Most of us like to fill our kitchens with over stuffed and towering cabinets. But with modular kitchens, storage space is a bit less. But having too many cabinets will also not solve the problem. If you have a storage space other than your kitchen then keep all your rarely used goods there like your special dinner set, party crockery etc. and whatever crockery can go on display should be displayed like in the dining area.
Break Up with the Dull Look
What gives the kitchen a very plain look is the rigid and static way it is designed. Once you set about remodeling your entire kitchen experiment with the height, length and depth of the cabinets. Break away from the horizontal lines and add some rows and racks in between so that your kitchen also looks attractive like any other room in the house.
Another remodeling tip is to have the counter tops at different heights. Like your cooking top can be at a lower height as compared to the other space. Also keep in mind the electrical appliances that you are going to have in the kitchen. Make individual spaces for them so that they are not all lined one after the other on your work counter.
Have Variety in the Cabinet Doors
If you look closely thereís a lot you can do with the cabinet doors. Avoid having rigid cabinet doors in the entire kitchen. Use a mixture of glass paneled doors and solid doors so that it gives an attractive look to the kitchen. One can also go for different colors for cabinet doors.
So no matter how big or small is your kitchen space you can always give a completely new look to it by these simple kitchen remodeling tips and ideas.
