No matter how big or small your kitchen at home might be, there are many ways to turn it into a more comfortable, organized and happy family space. Here are some remodeling tips you can use from award-winning home renovators, Trust Company.
Make It Brighter and Breezier
Improve your kitchen by making it brighter and bigger. You can expand your kitchen to include an adjacent room. Have the wall between the two areas removed to create a single large space. If you don’t have the floor space to spare, consider having new windows installed. Choose windows that let a lot of natural light into your home and help with air circulation as well. A brighter room can appear much bigger than it actually is and even more so when it is well-ventilated.
Increase Seating Capacity
If you have a large family or intend to host meals for friends and relatives more frequently, include seating capacity considerations in your kitchen renovation design. Account for the number of seats you want to have and where to place them throughout your kitchen. At Trust Company, for instance, we go forward with construction only after a final design, which includes locations for fixtures and appliances, has been approved.
Being organized is key to maximize kitchen space, particularly for small ones. Get rid of items you haven’t used in a long time or have of which you have unnecessary duplicates. Allocate space for your kitchen items depending on their use. For instance, keep cooking utensils in drawers near the stove area and dishes in the cabinets near the sink. Have your cabinets redone to fit your appliances. Take advantage of vertical space, and consider mixing in a few open shelving units to add some style.
