When you’re remodeling the kitchen, you should never ignore the ceiling. This is an area of the room that often gets overlooked. You don’t glance up at the ceiling except when the lights are on or maybe when you enter the room, making it an easy space to ignore when you’re in the middle of changing the look of the space. Instead of a blank slate, add texture with ceiling tiles, painting them in a color that blends with other colors in the room. A benefit of ceiling tiles is that they are easy to install and remove if you ever want to change the design or color because they simply click into place.
Another area you want to focus on with the kitchen remodeling project is behind the stove. Subway tiles arranged in different directions create a modern appearance. You can also get mirrored backsplash tiles or mosaic tiles for a pop of color. A home remodeling contractor can help with installing the tiles and the other details that you might not be able to reach or get just right. If you’re working on a budget, consider laminate when remodeling the counters. The texture and appearance are the same as what you would get with marble but without spending a lot of money.
Once you’ve decided on the colors for the kitchen and an overall theme, you want to start painting. Paint everything from the cabinets to the counters to the trim in the room. This is one of the easiest and fastest ways to touch up the kitchen, and painting allows you to change the look whenever you want because you’re not changing the major components of the room, such as the appliances or the flooring. Clean corners are another option when it comes to remodeling the kitchen. Install hardware that makes doors close as quietly as possible. You can sand down edges on the counters and doors for a sleek look so that everything flows along the edges of the room. While you’re softening the doors and drawers, change the hardware out so that it’s bright against the new paint scheme.
