Ever wanted to refresh your kitchen without the burden of a full renovation? A remodel is your best chance of revamping your kitchen without tearing it down. With a few changes here and there, homeowners can transform their kitchens into a room they enjoy preparing meals in and dine with their loved ones.
Kitchen remodeling does not only include reinstalling new windows and floors to your space. Finishing is an essential aspect of remodeling, and homeowners should be just as invested in it. For inspiration, we have compiled some finishing ideas you can look into when remodeling your kitchen.
1. Paint The Cabinets
Most homeowners prefer leaving their cabinets with a natural wood tone. However, a splash of color is a great way to glam your kitchen remodel. A variety of colors will bring different moods to the room. Guess what? You can choose to repaint your cabinets as often as you want, so don’t be bummed out when you have several color options.
2. Add An Exposed Brick Wall
You can ask your contractor to leave one wall of the kitchen exposed. A brick wall does more than breaking the monotony of painted walls; it defines your kitchen. It can be used as a beautiful backsplash that brings an edge to the remodel. You will never go wrong with this finishing; it fits the aura of modern kitchen remodels perfectly.
3. Add A Kitchen Rug
Once homeowners finish updating surfaces and reinstalling the floors, the kitchen looks great. But let’s get real! The polished countertops, shiny silver cooktops, and cold stone floors homey feel the kitchen should give. It may not seem much, but adding a rug to the kitchen takes your remodel to the next level. A kitchen rug has a way of finishing off the remodel in a smooth tone. You do not have to worry about buying something new because worn-out rugs bring an aesthetic vibe to the kitchen.
4. Open Shelving
Homeowners are often skeptical about having open shelves in their kitchen until they try it and love it! During the remodel, ask a contractor to create a few shelves in your kitchen; open shelves add texture and personality to space. You can use it to display a couple of mugs, cookery, or even non-kitchen related things like photos. Step back and have a look at your handy work. Looks great, right?
5. Bring A Book Shelf
It sounds like new territory, but trust us when we say there is something about kitchens and bookshelves. Kitchen remodeling is all about creating a refreshed cooking space, so do not be afraid to spread your wings and explore. Get several copies of books and organize them on the shelf. We promise you’ll love it.
6. Oversized Lighting
We cannot stress enough the importance of turning up your kitchen lighting. Instead of going for several small fixtures, go bold, and add oversized lighting that brings personality to the room. There are a variety of lighting fixtures that would make a statement in your kitchen.
