Remodeling your kitchen can be a big job with many expenses and a lot of time investment. Many homeowners choose to take on this task themselves and while we applaud the Do-it-yourselfers out there some tasks, depending on your skill level, can really require a skilled tradesman who is knowledgeable. They are not only able to get the job done right but also if you aren’t familiar with all of the issues that could arise it can be dangerous or costly to complete a job yourself.
Your kitchen is many times the heart of your home. It’s a place for family to gather, kids to do homework, friends to talk, and where warmth and love thrive. For many people a small outdated kitchen can yield just the opposite. It’s cramped, hard to maneuver, and stressful when more than a few people are in the area. Multitasking many jobs in a kitchen can become disorienting and demanding instead of fun.
Opening up a kitchen and living room can not only change the aesthetics of a home but also the flow and ease of your day. It provides an open floor plan that is functional and allows you to multitask. Changing the look and feel of your home can offer many benefits other than just improving the appearance.
As you can see in the picture to the left opening up a wall to offer a look through into the next room can be functional as well as pleasing to the eye. You can see that making a bar out of the space makes additional room for 4 stools on each side of the bar which is an added 8 seats for company. It also allows the light from the kitchen windows to shine through into the dining room making using electric lighting less necessary and is a more efficient use of natural light. The warm colors make the space feel comfortable and inviting, and the granite used not only looks elegant but offers easy clean up and rare staining.
There are many different ways to remodel your kitchen to allow for better functionality. Installing new cabinets and shelves can create a lot more space in a small kitchen and offer a space to hide trashcans or canned goods. Even dishwashers can now be hidden under the veneer of cabinet doors. Recessed lighting can be a great way to brighten up a kitchen as seen in the photo to the right. You can also see in the photo the tiered space by the sink offering a level to clean dishes and prepare meals and a level for others to sit and watch, help prepare, or do their own work while still being able to be near you and socialize. Since the kitchen tends to be a gathering place for socializing it is important for it to be functional to your needs and inviting for you and your friends and family.
