How many times are you going to renovate your kitchen? If you are like most homeowners, the answer is probably once in your lifetime. So why not make the most of it?
When you are done updating your kitchen, the last thing you want is for it to look pretty much the same. Instead, you should be bold, go big, and make major changes that will make your kitchen more modern, more functional, and add more value to your home’s resale value. Here are some must-have upgrades to consider for your kitchen renovation.
Upscale kitchens should have luxurious countertops. Marble, granite, or other stone countertops add visual appeal to kitchens. They can transform drab kitchens into stunning showpieces.
Stone countertops also increase your kitchen’s usability. Sealed marble counters are resistant to stains. Treated granite is more resistant to chipping or cracking. And all stone countertops can handle temperature extremes better than composite, wood, or laminate.
When you are renovating your kitchen, it almost always pays to replace your old refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, and other appliances with the latest state-of-the-art models. Not only are they more stylish and attractive, but many are more environmentally safe.
And most of today’s appliances offer convenient features that you and your family will wonder how you ever lived without.
Worn, dated, or broken cabinets are usually the main motivation for most kitchen renovations. So cabinets tend to be the one element that is replaced by homeowners most often.
The best thing about new cabinets is that you can configure them any way you like. You can customize your cabinet design to match your specific needs, making your kitchen not only more attractive but more functional as well.
It may be decades before you renovate your kitchen again. So make your kitchen renovation count by shooting for the stars.
