Three Kitchen Remodeling Ideas
For many Minnesotan families, the kitchen is one of the most-frequented spaces in the home, and the one where the most precious memories are made. Whether it’s baking cookies with the kids or whipping up an heirloom dish to return to your roots, the opportunities for bonding and connection are endless.
Therefore, when you want to renovate your kitchen space, it’s crucial that you settle on something that reflects both your styles and sensibilities. GCM Construction & Maintenance, your Eden Prairie providers of home remodeling services, has a smidge of inspo below to help spark the creation of the kitchen of your dreams.
Kitchen islands are incredibly versatile spaces, no matter if you’re cooking or hosting. When you’re flying around the room trying a new recipe, they serve as an always-accessible counter space. Just turn around and it’s there! When company comes over, you can use islands as an informal dining area with a set of trendy stools; for larger gatherings, they work well as a centralized spot for distributing appetisers.
Your kitchen island doesn’t need to match the rest of your counters; an “accent” countertop, much like an accent wall, can add visual interest and style to a room. Plus, you can afford to splurge a bit on it during your kitchen renovation if you choose to leave your remaining counter space as-is.
Build Up Your Cabinetry
It’s no secret that kitchens accumulate a huge variety of miscellaneous trinkets, from cooking tools used once in a blue moon to small bottles of spirits broken out for special occasions. Storage space can thus feel like it comes at a premium—but it won’t for long with a set of stylish new cabinets. While you may not have much floor space, you definitely can build up, installing mini storage compartments even above pre-existing cabinetry.
This is a renovation that’s as practical as it is beautiful. No more fretting about where to put the extra dishes your family seems to accumulate!
Don’t Be Afraid of Color
While many people still prefer unobtrusive neutrals and gentle wood tones, bright splashes of color, like sassy reds and cheery greens, are as in style as ever. Hiring a general contractor to recommend modern-colored appliances, paint a wall, or even pick out a tiled backsplash can add some much-needed vivacity to your kitchen.
