Got New Kitchen Flooring For The Holidays? Other Things To Change In Your Kitchen
If you had old, run down flooring, and decided to install new kitchen flooring for the holidays, you should consider other things now that the holidays are over. Below are two of these things so you can determine if they would be right for your home.
If your cabinets are old, you should consider installing new custom cabinets in your kitchen. Because cabinets are a big investment, it is important that you make the right choice. The last thing you want to happen is to not like your cabinets after they are installed.
You have the choice of purchasing cabinets at a home improvement store or cabinet company, or you can choose custom cabinets instead. These cabinets will likely cost more money bit it will be money well spent.
There are many things to consider when purchasing custom cabinets, such as the type of materials, door style, hardware, design, and other things. You will need to hire a cabinet maker to make your cabinets. When choosing someone, make sure they are experienced and qualified. They should offer design services to help you maximize the storage space and fit the cabinets with your appliances. Sit down and talk about the different materials they offer, as well as things like sliding storage, pull out storage and other accessories.
Along with your custom cabinets you should also choose a new countertop for your kitchen. There are a variety of countertops to choose from including:
- Granite: Granite is elegant but can be expensive. It is a natural stone that is durable, resistant to heat, and resistant to scratches.
- Quartz: Quartz is durable and is available in a wide range of colors. It is resistant to scratches and is non-porous making it resistant to bacteria and staining.
- Laminate: Laminate is less expensive when compared to granite and quartz. Laminate is available in a wide range of patterns and colors, is durable, and is non-porous.
- Concrete: The concrete used for countertops is not the same concrete that is used for driveways, etc. It is much lighter, cannot be chipped easily, is available in just about any color that you could want, and is durable. The countertops can be custom formed so if you have an oddly shaped or sized area this would be a good choice.
- Tile: Tile countertops are made with porcelain, glass, or ceramic tiles. They are available in a variety of styles so you can custom make your countertop like you did with your cabinets.
Once you finish with these two things there are many other things you can do, such as painting your kitchen, adding new curtains, etc.
