Make a Statement with a Kitchen Remodel


If your kitchen is looking a little out of date, then it may be time for an upgrade. With the right elements, your kitchen can make a statement that matches your personal style and taste. See what small changes you can make in your kitchen to make a big impact.

Paint it White


Many homeowners make the mistake of following paint fads that quickly go out of style. If you want your remodel to stand the test of time, white is a timeless colour that never goes out of style. Give your walls and cabinets a fresh coat of paint to update its look and give you a blank canvas you can easily coordinate decor with.

Be Creative with Space


Over time, our needs change, especially in rooms such as the kitchen. Sometimes your space simply needs an update to make your room fresh and easy to navigate. You don’t have to knock down walls and tear up floors to make a statement with your kitchen remodel. Simply changing up the arrangement in your room can transform the way you look at and utilize your space.

Make a Splash


Backsplashes are a great way to show off your personality. Because of their location, they’re one of the most noticeable aspects of a kitchen. Change up your backsplash to make a bold design statement that will turn heads. You can mix colours to create fun patterns or use pre-cut pieces that do the work for you.

Choose Counters Wisely


You can find kitchen countertops that make an impact without overextending your wallet. Thanks to a wide variety of materials available, you can find almost any type of countertop to match your kitchen’s overall look and your unique style. With the right counter installed in your kitchen, you can create a beautiful space to cook and entertain.

Light It Up


Many people neglect the lighting when they complete a remodel. Don’t spend money updating your kitchen only to have it look dark and uninviting with improper lighting. Any great renovation includes the right lighting, especially in the kitchen where you need ample light while cooking. Mixing a variety of styles such as track, pendant, and cabinet lighting can ensure you have enough light while providing an element of style.

Add Interest


Bring your renovation together with extra details that will give your kitchen a polished finish. From adding stone elements to your walls, installing bronze finished fixtures, freeing up counter space with organization solutions, or installing smart outlets and light bulbs, small details can take your kitchen to the next level.

Update Cabinets


Updating outdated cabinets can take our kitchen from drab to fab. If your cabinets are still in good structural condition, rather than replacing them you may want to consider a resurface upgrade. If, however, they’re on their last legs, you may find more value in replacing them. Use a mixture of open shelving and closed-door cabinets to add personality and style to your room and allow you to showcase your best dishes.

Your kitchen remodel can be a success when you use the right materials and design. These ideas can make it easy to bring your dream kitchen remodel to life.
