Not your grandmother’s kitchen

Thanks to Infinite Home Services for sharing this kitchen remodeling blog.

Whether you are grabbing a midnight snack, cooking breakfast or making a huge holiday meal, the kitchen is an important place in every American home. Kitchen bring families together in a meaningful way. Making yours the focal point of your home can be done with renovations.

Putting a lot of cash toward a full remodel is not always possible. However, updating some of the more important parts of your kitchen can be done as a small renovation.

Take a look around the kitchen and consider where the room is in most need of improvement. Are the cabinet handles falling off and shelves barely holding the dishes? Is your floor damaged beyond repair? Are your appliances ridiculously outdated, not energy efficient or failing? Do you have outdated wallpaper or peeling paint? Are counters old and dull? Pick the improvements you need to do right away and save the non-essential updates for another time.

If you are thinking about a cosmetic update, Infinite Home Services is happy to help. We can help you pick the hottest colors for your walls and floor. Using colors, you can make the room look larger and brighter.

New cabinet fronts and countertops will go a long way to changing the appearance of an older, dated kitchen. We’ll help your new kitchen come to life with updates that offer a new feel that matches your lifestyle. Add a backsplash above the sink with patterned tiles that complement your cabinets and walls.

Flooring can be anything from vinyl to tile to laminate – all repel moisture. Laminate flooring comes in a variety of colors and styles and can look like wood or other flooring.

Window treatments are another cosmetic update that can change your kitchen from dull and boring to bright and exciting. Change old drapes to blinds that open or close with the touch of a button.

Adding Storage

If you are looking for updates that will add storage space, lots of options are available. Infinite Home Services has professionals who can help you improve the storage space in your kitchen through small renovations.

A multi-tiered lazy Susan can make use of awkward corner cabinets. Adding sliding drawers instead of shelves to lower cabinets allow you to reach all the way to the back, making the space you have more user friendly.

If you really want to think outside the box, people often opt for open cabinets or even shelves as an alternative to cabinets. You can add shelves to complement your existing cabinets as well.

Under cabinet appliances or built-in appliances add space to a claustrophobic kitchen. Instead of having a microwave on a stand, having one under the cabinets will fill unused space and still allow you to have the countertops as areas where you can work. Add under counter lighting and actually see what you are chopping when you are preparing dinner.

Have you ever opened a kitchen drawer to a messy pile of stuff? You can’t find anything you need without removing several items first. Drawers with built-in dividers can make an orderly space from what was formerly a mess.

If there is enough floor space, an island will add an extra food prep area along with storage underneath. A pull-down ceiling rack that holds pots and pans is another way to add storage to your kitchen.
