Today I want to talk about the remodeling and painting that you might want to do in your kitchen. There are so many important decisions to make with such an important job. The kitchen is the heart of the home and it needs a lot of careful consideration. Where do you begin? First you want to consider the layout of your kitchen and how to tie it in to the rooms around it. We want to make sure the flow into the dining room or living room works for your lifestyle. Some people prefer for the kitchen to be away from sight, and compartmentalized. Others love the new open kitchen concept where the kitchen is open to the rest of the living space. If there is an eat-in kitchen area that you no longer use in favor of a dining room that space can be available for a kitchen expansion that will make the kitchen work area so much larger.
When designing a kitchen we want to consider the work flow- the triangle work space between the refrigerator, stove, and sink are super important for efficiency when cooking and working in the kitchen. You want to keep that in mind! Then you want to decide if you are using the existing cabinets or replacing them. Cabinets are a big investment so if your old ones are in good shape it may be better to either refinish them or sand and paint them. If there is budget for it during your Coweta remodeling and painting, we definitely recommend updating the hardware. It is definitely worth it to update them to a newer finish. The more common finishes are chrome, brushed nickel, satin nickel, and oil rubbed bronze. You can also get black, white, or brass finish on hinges. The nickel finishes and oil rubbed bronze are very popular right now. Be sure and consider the colors going on the cabinets, countertops, and walls when you choose your hardware finish!
Another important thing to consider is lighting for Coweta Remodeling and Painting. Many older homes have drop ceilings that can be removed to open up the room, or older style tub lighting. The newer fixtures have brighter LED lighting in them, and can lights are super popular for task lighting in certain areas. Some people install can lights evenly throughout the kitchen as the sole lighting. In addition there are great options for undercabinet lighting, giving even better work space light to the cabinets.
Many kitchen updates now include an island or bar, to include the family in on conversation while the meal is being prepared, or for ease of use as working space or homework space for children. If your space can be reworked to include an island or bar it also gives you extra storage space! The bar area can be raised above the regular counter height for taller stools. It is popular to install pendant lights over bar or island areas for task lighting there. These are all important things to consider!
As we begin to decide on finishing touches for your Coweta remodeling and painting in the kitchen, we need to decide on the finish for the appliances. Common options with Coweta Remodeling and Painting are black, white, and stainless steel. Less common options are almond, other colors, or the brand new fingerprint resistant stainless steel. Stainless steel is considered the premium, most sought after finish, and usually costs a little bit more. Whatever finish you select, be consistent in the microwave, hood, dishwasher, stove, and refrigerator. A matched set really makes everything come together in the finished kitchen.
In countertops there is a plethora of options, depending on your budget. Most budget friendly is the old standby, Formica type products. These can be ordered in prelaminated counters that simply need trimmed and installed on the existing or new cabinets. Install is easy and quick. If you chose an in-stock color the job can be finished in two or three days. Other options which vary greatly in price depending on rarity and availability are granite, quartz, and manmade surface. They all have pluses and minuses. Granite is generally the most sought after finish for it’s durability and heat resistance. It must be sealed every few years to keep it in good condition and continue to repel stains and moisture. It comes in many different colors and patterns, and price varies widely depending on those choices.
Once the countertops are chosen we need to think about the sink and faucet. Porcelain? Stainless steel? Stone? Will it be surface mount? Flush mount? Undermout? Obviously you want to match or compliment the finish with the hardware and other things in the kitchen in your choice of faucet finish. There are thousands of kitchen faucets to choose from- we are not limited to the types available 20 years ago! Built in sprayer heads that extend for use are extremely popular right now, replacing the older set up with a sprayer installed on the side. You can replace that side sprayer with a built in soap dispenser if you wish, for dish soap or hand soap. There are lots of options to chose from!
Last but not least you need to consider the paint choice for your Coweta Remodeling and Painting.
