Make Your Kitchen Renovation a Timeless One
A kitchen renovation is an important investment that adds value to your home, as well as years of happy returns from the memories you make within.
Homeowners seeking a kitchen renovation that’s both trendy and timeless will benefit from the following advice.
Our first recommendation is to consider a transitional design, which incorporates both classic and modern elements for a sleek, timeless look. Homeowners are also increasingly removing ornamental hardware on cabinetry for a more masculine design.
Take note that the traditional work triangle (stove, refrigerator, sink) is giving way to a more restaurant-style workspace, with several different prep areas and even a second sink located in a center island.
With the ubiquitousness of electronics, kitchens are also accommodating a larger number of electrical outlets, both for small appliances and for charging electronics. Kitchens are also becoming more of a gathering space for the whole family; meaning homework areas for children are often incorporated as well.
Additionally, homeowners are breaking up traditional cabinet blocks by installing a number of glass-fronted cabinets. This adds visual interest to the space, and is also a great way to show off gorgeous dish sets.
Lastly, homeowners are upgrading with high-end appliances that bring both energy efficiency and a professional atmosphere into the kitchen. For the aspiring gourmet, a six-burner stove or an extra-deep sink could be the centerpiece of your renovation.
