Whether you’re completely gutting your space for a kitchen renovation Vancouver or making small alternations for a spring refresh, knowing how to get the most out of your remodel will not only save you money but also add value to your home in case you decide to sell.
So, what can we do to take our kitchens from drab to fresh and modern?
Don’t Underestimate Lighting
Lighting in the kitchen is huge. Whether you’re a chef and need immaculate and intentionally placed lighting to do your best work or use the kitchen as a hangout area, it can make all the difference in its functionality and level of comfort. You can install under-cabinet lighting for a modern look, as well as use pendant lights to light up the island. Lights that dim are a great addition to the dining area when you’re entertaining and have guests over.
Don’t Shy Away from Colour
Although the classic all-white bathroom is a universally great choice, if you have a favourite colour you want to see in your home, why not include it in the kitchen? You can introduce colour in the form of backsplash tile, wallpaper, or by painting your kitchen cabinets a different colour. You can even choose a more vibrantly coloured island.
Change Out Your Hardware
Hardware is the easiest and cheapest thing to change out in your kitchen, and it can actually make a big difference. By simply painting your kitchen cabinets and changing the knobs and handles, it can look like an entirely new space. Make these changes to supporting elements like pantry doors or island drawers and cabinets.
Quartz vs. Marble
Natural marble is adored amongst homeowners and renters alike, however, it can be hard to maintain, expensive and easily damaged. Quartz countertops are made from real quartz, the strongest material on earth, combined with resin. The result is an incredibly tough work-surface that is heat-resistant and can withstand scratches and dents.
