Kitchen renovation ideas that deliver a big impact
Whether you're renovating every detail in your kitchen or just changing a few features, the selection of kitchen renovation items available makes it fun and easy to create the look you love. Items are available for every detail, from the plumbing to the countertops. So, whether you're focused on the functional elements that are hidden inside the counters or the details that show, it's easy to pick the products you need to make a big impact in your kitchen.
Plumbing fixtures for kitchen renovation
Tackle the hidden part of kitchen renovation and efficiency by making sure your water-purification system, water heater, and garbage disposal are in top condition. Water-filtration systems can mount under the sink or attach to faucets. You can also install whole-house filtration systems at the point in your home's plumbing where the water comes into the house from your municipal water supply.
If you just want to filter your drinking water, a faucet-mounted filtration system is ideal. If you want larger quantities of water filtered, such as for washing dishes and cleaning purposes, look to an under-the-sink style to deliver more filtered water than a faucet-mounted style is able to provide. A whole-house filtration system is ideal if you have hard water or a well and want to protect your pipes or any surfaces in your home that water touches. This option can also help keep your laundry fresher.
Water heaters are available in a variety of styles. Choose the energy source you need to use, including electric, natural gas, or propane. Another consideration when picking a water heater is the amount of water you expect to need on a regular basis. For example, if you have a large family and run the washing machine, dishwasher, and shower frequently, you'll need a large water heater to keep up with the demand. Smaller families may find a smaller heater or tankless water heater sufficient to deliver all the hot water necessary.
Kitchen flooring options
Common kitchen flooring options include hardwood, laminate, vinyl, and ceramic tile. Each of these materials provides a durable, long-lasting finish, and choosing the design effect you want is one of the main ways to pick. When shopping for new kitchen flooring, begin with the dimensions of your floor. Start with the length and width of your floor space and multiply them together to get the square footage. If you're looking for a floor you can easily install yourself without the help of a contractor, consider laminate tiles with adhesive backings. You can install them atop your current floor. Look for designs with locking edges for better durability.
Kitchen cabinets for extra storage
Consider adding a freestanding kitchen island to your cooking area to create extra storage space. These cabinets come in a variety of colors and your choice of smooth-faced doors or embellished styles to match your existing cabinets. Look for an island cart with locking caster wheels that allow you to reposition the island as desired.
Replacing the cabinet and drawer hardware is another way to make a big change in the appearance of a kitchen without changing a lot of other details. New handles and drawer pulls add fresh style. Replacing weak hinges and closing hardware with new pieces makes the cabinet doors and drawers feel like new.
Countertops for your kitchen
Changing your countertops is a way to change your kitchen's aesthetic even if you don't switch up any other design element in the room. There's a variety of materials to choose from when replacing countertops, such as marble, granite, and wood. This can be a big expense, though. For an easier and much more affordable project, there are kits available that transform the appearance of your existing countertops without replacing them. These create the effect of natural stone on counters made of Formica and other synthetic materials.
Kitchen sinks and faucets
Replacing the sink and faucet is one last way to change the appearance of your kitchen. Sink options include double and single bowls in your choice of finishes. Faucets come in different styles, too, to give you the effect and functionality you want. Shorter faucets provide a classic, low-profile effect, while pot-filler faucets and pull-down faucets give you extra control over where you direct the flow of the water.
