The kitchens in many older houses do not fit the needs of today’s homeowners. Old wooden cabinets and laminate countertops are often small and cramped, and unnecessary walls may shut the kitchen off from the rest of the home. A contemporary kitchen should serve equally well as a venue for informal parties and as a workspace for cooking a full sit-down dinner. If you have outgrown your old kitchen, an interior remodel can transform it into a modern space. Some of the most popular kitchen renovations are:
Laminate countertops are not heat-resistant. You must always place trivets under hot dishes to avoid melting or burning the counter. Many homeowners upgrade their countertops to granite or quartz composite, because these materials offer both style and durability. In addition, their smooth surfaces are easy to clean.
New Cabinets and Shelving
No one likes rummaging around the back of a dark cabinet trying to find a pan or a lid. Updated kitchen cabinets can have sliding shelves inside, so you can efficiently use all your space and quickly access the items you need. Moisture and stain-resistant materials and coatings can help keep your cabinets looking like new.
Often, homeowners like to open the kitchen up to the rest of the home by creating a pass-through or even removing a wall. Once a contractor determines that you can safely remodel or remove a non-load bearing interior wall, you can create a cut out or, for even more space, knock down the wall and add a breakfast bar or extend the counter space.
There are many more ways to renovate and upgrade your kitchen, including adding back-splashes to walls, installing or expanding kitchen islands, and changing the flooring material.
