Design, function, and practicality are all priorities when embarking on a kitchen renovation. On top of being beautiful, its important to have proper lighting and appropriate seating, and optimize storage all at once. Here, we’ve compiled a list of kitchen renovation ideas for you to consider.
Think About a Cozy Nook
Does your kitchen have an open, unused corner? If so, consider transforming that spot into a multipurpose nook. If you work from home, a nook can give you a more scenic view than an at-home office. If you have a few friends over for dinner, it’s much easier to set up at the nook than the overextended table. And don’t forget about breakfast with the kiddos; it can be easier to clean up a small area than the family dining room table.
Keeping things organized is hard enough as it is! So when renovating your kitchen, make sure to keep storage top of mind. For example, consider storing infrequently used dishes in lower drawers or hiding a coffee or wine bar behind farmhouse cabinet doors. Extra storage will never steer you wrong
Hardware Is Easy-Peasy
If you’re on a budget or don’t know where to start with your kitchen renovation, begin with an easy category: hardware! New pulls and knobs can completely transform a kitchen. Plus, there are endless metal finishes and sheens to choose from. Be sure to measure your cabinets and drawers before selecting your hardware to ensure it fits.
Add an Island
Nowadays, kitchen islands aren’t just for food prepping, though it is nice that the center countertop is ready if needed. They are also used for gathering, a bar style sink, as an extra place to sit and eat, and for providing additional storage!
