Are you less likely to want to host dinner parties or simply invite friends over because your kitchen is no longer your favorite part of the house? If this is the case, or if you’re just looking to upgrade, then a kitchen remodel is exactly what you’re needing. After making the decision of remodeling your kitchen, you may want to look into the specifics of what you should prioritize before jumping right in. You are going to want to know as much as you can before taking on this project. Which is why you’re in luck as we have come up with our list of kitchen remodeling tips.
Update Your Appliances
We recommend getting this step out of the way first, as your appliances have the ability to set the tone of your kitchen. It’s much easier to build the rest of your kitchen around the way you want your kitchen appliances to look. With that being said, you also don’t want your appliances to clash, so we recommend buying them from the same manufacturer, and you can even save more by purchasing a kitchen bundle. You can read our previous blog on the benefits of kitchen bundles here. As far as kitchen packages go, we recommend the brand ZLINE Kitchen and Bath as they offer bundles ranging from 2 to 5 piece packages. These packages can include ranges, wall ovens, range tops, microwaves, dishwashers, range hoods, and refrigerators. You also have the option between classic Stainless Steel and Black Stainless finishes for the appliances available with the kitchen package. Shop ZLINE Kitchen Packages through The Range Hood Store here.
Match Your Hardware
To work off further from the previous step, we found that once you have your kitchen appliances, it is much easier to make decisions and build the rest of your kitchen design. One easy way to tie your kitchen together is to match the handles and hardware across all cabinetry with your appliances. Typically, the best timeless hardware finishes that we recommend are black, stainless steel, gold, and bronze. If you choose to have a stainless or black look on your handles, you’re in luck as most appliances will seamlessly match. If you choose to go with a bronze or gold finish for your handles and hardware you may have trouble matching these to your appliances. However, ZLINE’s Autograph Edition appliances allow you to have the option between matte black, champagne bronze, and gold-finished handles and knobs. The appliances included in the Autograph Edition collection include ranges, range tops, range hoods, dishwashers, and in the future, refrigerators. Shop ZLINE Autograph Edition Appliances here.
Choose Your Cabinets
Finding the right cabinets for your kitchen goes hand in hand with matching the hardware. This will further help you in making your space harmonize together seamlessly. The cabinets are one of the most prominent elements in your kitchen due to how much space they take in the area..You are going to want to love the cabinets that you choose, and if you do, you may even want the cabinets to be more than just drawers and storage spaces. Luckily, this is possible with panel-ready dishwashers from ZLINE. ZLINE offers a variety of different colored panels along with Autograph Edition models, but this doesn’t limit your creativity. They also offer a panel-ready option that allows you to implement a panel to match flush with your kitchen cabinets. Shop ZLINE Panel Ready Dishwashers here.
Comfortable Cook Space
Not only will you want your kitchen to serve looks, but also provide high functionality as well. Nonetheless, you should feel comfortable cooking in your kitchen to provide and make a great meal, whether it’s for yourself, a small group of friends, or you’re entertaining a large group of people. You should also plan ahead as to what size meals you are going to be cooking on a regular basis. Ranges can be sized from 24 to 60 inches, with the larger models offering double ovens. Additionally, you will want to plan out the arrangements of all your cooking appliances, so they aren’t in the way of each other but also not inconveniently placed too far apart. Be sure to shop all cooking appliances at The Range Hood Store here.
Don’t Forget The Details
Lastly, you will want to be sure to cover the details of your kitchen remodel. They may seem small compared to the other steps taken during the remodel, but they can play a large role in the final look and feel of your kitchen. Kitchen details can differ from the lighting, the backsplash, or small decor pieces throughout the area. The details in your kitchen can really change it from just a regular kitchen space to a great place to cook, hang out, and entertain.
