Kitchen Remodeling Tips
The two most used rooms in your home are the kitchen and bathroom. If your kitchen or bath is outdated, you’ve probably been considering some remodeling for some time. This is a great year to move forward with your plans! Wouldn’t you love some new style? Renovating your kitchen will create an entirely new look for your home, and the results can be really exciting.
When you are considering a Long Island kitchen remodeling project, you will have unlimited choices available. Whether you just want to replace a sink or would like to completely gut out and remodel, you’ll be deciding from numerous manufacturers of fixtures, plumbing choices, surface materials, functional options, luxury options, and more.
To help you with your considerations, here are a few things to think about…
Lighting Options For Your Kitchen Remodel
Lighting is one of the most important aspects of any kitchen design. Homeowners enjoy customizing their lighting in the kitchen area because it not only adds ambiance but serves to provide you with better lighting.
Recessed down lights are extremely functional and serve a bar area well in the kitchen. Other lighting can enhance mood and give you the look you want.
If you’re thinking about replacing your existing lights, you’ll find that you have an unlimited number of choices. Fixtures and lights come in different sizes and shapes, as well as styles. There are so many types of fixtures for you to choose from that the process can really seem daunting.
Kitchen remodeling on Long Island isn’t always an easy process, but the reward is well worth it. As homeowner, it will be left up to you to make your final choices on all aspects of your project. It’s important then that you do as much research as you can handle so you know the options out there.
Ceiling lights are in most instances the most affordable lighting option. Traditionally, a kitchen had one light, maybe two, but in today’s homes a number of lighting types are installed including recessed lighting, pendant lighting, and chandelier lights.
Under cabinet lighting is usually an extra luxury in kitchens, not being installed during new construction. It is a wonderful feature for your kitchen because in the evenings you can leave them on for gentle lighting options. They also serve very well to light up space right where you are working to cut veggies or cook.
Ceiling fans can be great over breakfast areas. Installing a ceiling fan with a light kit will also serve for good lighting when you gather around the table with your friends or family. Imagine being able to have a light breeze going as well when you all sit down to play cards or enjoy some quality time together.
Flooring For Your Kitchen Remodel
Does your dream kitchen include some great flooring? If so, then you will have lots of options when it comes to your new flooring. Hardwoods and laminates are just two popular types.
Consider cork flooring for your new kitchen floor. It works well with just about any wood or counter top choices elsewhere in the kitchen and is naturally mildew resistant.
Whatever flooring choice you end up making, be sure it’s a good surface for the kitchen that will resist moisture problems. The kitchen and bath are normally tiled or laid with natural stone that is sealed against moisture.
