Want To Redesign Your Kitchen? 2 Tips To Help You Get Started

by Sara Cook

If your kitchen has not been updated in some years, you are likely ready for a change. There are many choices to make when it comes to making these changes and it can become overwhelming. To help you out, below are two things you can do to help you get started with your project.

Countertops

The kitchen countertop is well used, and if have had your current countertop for many years, changing it can make a big difference in the way your kitchen looks. There are many types of countertops you can choose from, including:

Natural Stone: Natural stone countertops are durable and they look elegant. Many natural stone countertops are naturally resistant to bacteria. There is also a wide variety of colors and designs to choose from.

Granite: Granite countertops may be expensive, but if you plan to stay in your home for a long time, this expense is well worth it. Granite is a natural stone and is durable and easy to care for.

Laminate: If you are on a budget, laminated countertops would be a good choice. They are available in a wide range of patterns and colors. Laminate countertops are easier to scratch than other countertops, however.

Quartz: Quartz is made of quartz crystals that are combined with resin. They are available in a wide variety of colors. The surface of this countertop will not stain, and wiping it down with warm water and a cloth will keep it clean.

Cabinets

Along with new countertops, you should consider new cabinets. There are stock cabinets, which are cabinets that you can purchase at a home improvement store already assembled. There are also semi-custom cabinets, which have more finishes and styles as well as more features. There are also custom cabinets that let you design the cabinets when it comes to the wood and finish that is used, as well as the many other features you can use (such as pull out side drawers or a type of lazy Susan inside a cabinet for your spices).

If you are on a budget, you can change your current cabinets to make them look new again. Consider painting them a different color. White can brighten up a room, or you could choose colors like aqua, yellow, bright red, or blue. You can also refinish the cabinets, which is a DIY job if you prefer.
