People often think of remodeling their kitchen as a process that starts with tearing out all of the existing materials and replacing them. Sometimes, this approach is necessary. For example, if your kitchen is 50 years old and really worn out, a full remodel is almost certainly in order. However, you don't always have to demolish a kitchen before giving it a new look or more functionality. A remodel can be much less extensive. Consider using one or more of the following additions to transform your current kitchen design.
Add a Backsplash
If you do not have a backsplash, adding one to your kitchen can change its entire look. You can make the backsplash from materials in an entirely different color than the rest of your kitchen, which will brighten things up. The backsplash will also hide any stains that have accumulated on your walls in the past few years. Plus, from now on, when you splash something up onto the wall, it will be easy to wipe off. Most backsplashes are made from tile, and there are thousands of options to choose from, so examine them and decide what you like.
Add a Second Beverage Fridge
Is your fridge often cluttered and crowded? Adding a second fridge, which you use only for beverages, can clear out a lot more space in your everyday fridge. You may need to have a remodeling contractor remove a few of your lower cabinets to make space for a small beverage fridge. Or, you may need to have them add a second fridge box for another full-size fridge elsewhere in your kitchen.
Reface Your Cabinets
Replacing all of your cabinets—boxes and all—can be a big and expensive project. It's often not necessary. You may instead want to hire a kitchen remodeling company to replace just the doors on your cabinets. This service is known as refacing. You can choose doors in a whole different style and color, and it will have a dramatic effect on the look of your kitchen. Going from natural wood cabinet doors to painted ones, for example, will introduce more color to the space. This service will also address any worn, loose, or sagging doors.
The additions above can really help transform your kitchen design. If you'd like a remodel but don't want to tear your whole kitchen apart, contact a kitchen remodeling contractor in your area to learn more.Share
