8 Kitchen Remodeling Ideas

An updated kitchen can serve more than one useful purpose – not only can it help bring people together, but it can also serve as a selling point. In addition, many homeowners spend a lot of time in their kitchen and a renovated space can make it more enjoyable.

At Oliver Heating & Cooling, we also offer home remodeling services that can transform the look and feel of your kitchen. Here are some remodeling ideas to give you some inspiration:

A Backsplash

Whether you already have a backsplash that you want to update or you want to add a new one, a backsplash is a great way to protect your walls and add an element of design. Backsplash ideas are nearly endless, so you can easily create one that blends in with the rest of your decor or one that stands out.

New Floors

One of the biggest things that draws your eye is flooring and when it comes to kitchens, there are plenty of materials to choose from. Some prefer the classic look of laminate or ceramic, but there are also some interesting choices like distressed wood, bamboo, concrete, stone, or even carpet tiles.

Open Shelves

Open shelves are a great way to make a small kitchen seem bigger. Instead of taking up space with cabinets, try storing your dishware, appliances, and more in an open area. You’ll not only save on cabinet cost, but you’ll create a modern, minimalist look for your kitchen space.

Lighting Fixtures

While large remodels like new countertops or new floors can completely transform your kitchen, there are some smaller replacements you can make to still give it a whole new look. Lighting fixtures can make a big difference in your decor, so play around with new possibilities. Consider things like chandeliers, track lighting, pendant lights, or even sconces to add a specific look and feel.

Updated Hardware

If you already have cabinets that are still in good shape, you may not need to replace them. Instead, you can easily give them a fresh look with new hardware. Choose handles that are modern, yet timeless to update your cabinets and drawers.

Ceiling Tiles

Many people neglect their ceilings when remodeling; because they’re nearly out of sight, it’s pretty easy to. However, unique ceiling tiles can add a creative touch to your kitchen. Try ones that mimic antique tin or ones with a recessed stamped pattern. You can even paint them a bold color and make them the focal point of your kitchen.

Paint

Paint can make a big difference in your kitchen’s ambiance – warmer blues can promote relaxation while cool greens can bring a sense of comfort. Turn to a shade of yellow to communicate happiness or simply stick to a neutral color that you can brighten with decor. You can even get creative and add a section of chalkboard paint to your walls for a whimsical place to write your shopping list.

A Modern Sink

Your sink is more of a focal point than you realize (especially if you have a smaller kitchen), so why not replace your current model with a more modern style? Try a design that’s under-mounted, one that features brushed steel, or even a deep double-bowl sink. Then, finish the look with a sleek new faucet.
