Sure, we now know how to increase the visual size of a small kitchen, from layout and design to color. But consider this: When decorating a smaller space I’ve often found it’s not necessary to increase the size of the room through interior design. The reason: by going with the existing architecture of the small area, you can often create a wonderful well-designed cozy space. So instead of using tricks to enlarge the space, maybe you want to embrace it just the way it is. Instead of going light or sleek, maybe you go country cozy. Perhaps you make sure there is a little nook where you can sit with a visitor knee-to-knee. Or choose a dark, rich color that creates a sophisticated feeling — and use accessories that emphasize that look. The kitchen is small, yes; but it sure is sexy.
When planning a kitchen makeover, or a new construction, the countertop presents one of the most common sticking points. Everything else can fall in line once you get this out of the way. Kitchen Remodeling Los Angeles can walk you through every possible combination until we find something that fits your taste. Apart from the countertops, we will also cover other fixtures such as lighting, flooring, appliances, and cabinets. We can adapt our designs to meet your functional needs and cosmetic taste.
In an upscale major kitchen remodel, you may take many of the same actions, but the finishes will be higher quality — think top-of-the-line custom cabinetry, stone countertops, high-end appliances, an imported ceramic or glass tile backsplash, an undermount sink, a faucet with water filtration, and upgraded lighting, which could include general and task lighting, as well as undercabinet LED lighting. The flooring material will be tile, wood-look tile or wood.
Remodeling your kitchen is a great investment for any homeowner. In addition to creating a beautiful, functional place to cook delicious meals, entertain guests, and spend family time, a kitchen remodel offers a high return rate in the real estate market. Such a large project does require careful planning to ensure its affordability, since certain factors like the amount of labor, the kitchen's size and the chosen materials can greatly affect the overall cost.
