Kitchen Renovation Ideas: Inspiration to Create the Kitchen of Your Dreams
The kitchen is the heart of the home–and possibly the most used room in the whole house–so make sure it’s a space you love.
Whether you’re giving an older kitchen a facelift, or starting completely from scratch, take a look at these kitchen renovation ideas to get all the inspiration you need to make your dream kitchen a reality.
1. Choose An Interesting Backsplash
Selecting a kitchen backsplash might be one of the more interesting design decisions you’ll have to make. Subway tile is a classic look, but opting for a glass version with a hint of color is a great way to bring beauty and warmth to the space.
2. Invest in Family-Friendly Countertops
Considering marble countertops? If you’re going to be nervous about spills and stains, there are a variety of quartz products that are just as gorgeous and also a bit more family-friendly. This one looks amazing, but stands up to the wear and tear of kids, guests and cooking.
3. All-purpose Kitchen Island
If you have the space, a kitchen island can really help bring the family together. Just imagine the kids gathering around the island while you pack lunches, prep, and cook. An island is also a great opportunity to bring in extra functionality. This one includes tons of storage.
4. Elegant Waterfall Countertops
And speaking of islands, a kitchen island with a waterfall edge is the perfect way to show off your gorgeous countertops and take your kitchen design to the next level. Waterfall countertops create a seamless, elegant look in your kitchen.
5. Pick Out Some Pretty Pendants
Lighting is another decision that requires some careful consideration because of the various functions that lighting can provide. Pendants are generally considered to be the jewelry of the kitchen, and they should be as pretty as they are functional.
6. Ceiling High Storage
Having cabinets all the way to the ceiling is a great way to give your kitchen a more modern look. Soffits are a huge waste of space when you could be using that square footage for extra storage in the kitchen – which is something everyone could use!
7. Contrasting Colors
Another thing to consider when you’re picking out color for cabinets, countertops and a backsplash is contrast. Using lighter colors helps support darker accents, like this gorgeous dark backsplash paired with light countertops and cabinets.
8. Luxurious Appliances
Make sure you save ample room in the budget for appliances. No dream kitchen is complete without a stylish, six-burner gas range. We love Jenn Air appliances, a brand known for modern kitchen luxury.
9. Pop of Color
If you’re interested in a non-traditional kitchen, consider adding a pop of color to your kitchen cabinets. Since cabinets take up most of the space in a kitchen both physically and visually, cabinet color will have a huge impact on the room.
10. The Classic Kitchen
Last but not least, we’re serving up some style with one of our favorites – the classic all-white kitchen. Layered with texture and dimension, this look is anything but vanilla and will never go out of style.
