If you want to change the look of your kitchen, there are many different options to consider for renovations. Instead of remodeling your entire home, changing the cabinet layout and adding new counter tops is a great way to change the appearance of your kitchen. There are also options for restoring cabinets by having the refinished and adding new counter tops. Here are some tips to change the design of your kitchen with new counters and cabinets:
1. Solid Surface Counter Tops to Change Your Kitchen
In older home's, kitchen counter tops are often made of particle-board products that are covered with a veneer laminate. The problem with these old materials is that the wood inside is easily damaged by water and the surfaces are prone to damage that cannot be repaired. To solve this problem in your home, have solid surface counter tops installed. Today, you have the choice of real stone like granite, synthetic materials like epoxy, and light-weight concrete counters.
2. Refinishing and Refacing Cabinets to Change Kitchen Design
To give you kitchen a new look, you will want to change the cabinets. What if you like the way the cabinet layout is designed but want to change their look? Today, you have options like cabinet refacing, which will completely change the look of the cabinets without changing the structure or layout. If you have wood cabinets, you may also want to consider options for refinishing them, such as sanding and new stain or painting them.
3. Adding Kitchen Island, Bar or Extra Counter Space to the Kitchen
Food preparation space is important in the kitchen, and there never seems to be enough counters. You may also want to have space for dining in the kitchen area if you have a busy family. Consider adding to your kitchen with an island or bar area. Bar space will give you an area to have meals with your family and an island will give your kitchen more prep-space. In addition, there are also solutions for islands with casters that can be moved out of the way or where you need them, which is great for smaller kitchen designs.
4. Changing the Cabinet Layout in The Kitchen for A New Look
If you have a smaller kitchen or cabinets that seem to be out of place, you may want to consider completely changing the layout of the cabinets. Work with the cabinet installers to create a design that works for your kitchen. This is also a great opportunity to add storage features, islands and bar space to your kitchen.
