The Best Upgrades For Your Kitchen
Plenty of people are considering a Crofton kitchen remodel, but of course, not many people have the luxury of an unlimited budget to spend as much as they want wherever they want. A Crofton kitchen remodel is one of the most cost-effective ways to add value to your daily home life and your overall property value. However, even if you can’t upgrade every single aspect of your kitchen, there are a few upgrades that will give you the most bang for your buck.
A Multipurpose Work Area
This is a relatively new concept, but it’s gained much traction since the pandemic and the rise of more people working from home. A general “work area” is just an evolution of the old days when kids or other family members would do homework or other tasks in the kitchen.
Now, more people work from home, and home office space may be at a premium; a desk or other general work area in the kitchen can often be a useful addition for the family working at home.
An Island Counter
This should be a serious consideration for any large kitchen with an open, central space. Island counters add more convenience and functionality to a kitchen. Depending on your styling preferences, they can also double as dining tables in the kitchen, but with a quality island counter installation, this not only changes the look of a kitchen, it also provides more convenience for how the workflow in the kitchen is managed during food preparation.
Sometimes the best way to noticeably change the kitchen experience is to improve performance. If you’re generally happy with your kitchen’s current layout and condition, switching out old appliances and installing new ones can make a huge difference.
New stoves, refrigerators, microwaves, and others can all add further convenience and, in some cases, interconnectedness with your home’s digital network. And if you’re still washing dishes by hand, maybe now is the time to change that with the installation of a dishwasher.
Update Or Replace Cabinets
The single biggest expense in any Crofton kitchen remodel is the cabinets, so if you want to spend a lot of money on just one thing, this is typically it. While it’s possible to simply update cabinets by using simple techniques such as painting the doors, another option is to go for a full upgrade and get brand-new cabinets.
This is especially true if you’re not happy with the current amount of storage space and want even more.
This is another upgrade that can dramatically alter the look of a kitchen. Like the cabinets, kitchen countertops can often be one of the first things to “date” a kitchen in terms of what decade major work was done. The speckled granite countertops that were all the rage at the turn of the century are starting to look far less trendy and modern 20 years later.
New countertops add to the longevity of your kitchen but are also important work surfaces for food preparation and should not be ignored. If you’re thinking of remodeling your kitchen, contact us today.
