The flooring is another major part of your kitchen remodel. For a warm feel, most homeowners opt to install hardwood flooring. There is so much variety available, including wide plank flooring, dark wood, and distressed. If your budget allows, you can opt for more expensive options such as marble or slate.
Cabinets are another obvious target for your renovation. When choosing cabinets, do not just think about your storage needs, consider how they will impact the décor. Make sure that the wall and floor cabinets work well with the rest of the kitchen.
Two other important areas to take into account when renovating include the backsplash and cabinet tops. Here you have to make many choices including color, style, and materials.
There is also lighting to choose, which is extremely important to the function and look of your kitchen. Let in more natural light to make the kitchen more stylish and create the perception of space. You can enlarge the windows, knock down a dividing wall for better flow of light or install a skylight. At night, make sure your lighting options are well placed for the best lighting and décor. Some ideas include adding more light directly above the work area and adding smaller lights under the cabinet.
