6 Tips for a Successful Kitchen Remodel

Use Lighting – Light is one of the most crucial factors when determining a new kitchen design. When we design a new kitchen, clients pay close attention to the use of multiple natural and artificial light sources; this allows light to radiate throughout the kitchen. This process typically involves identifying space for new windows, expanding existing windows or incorporating glass doors to the outside.

In some instances, it is quite difficult to incorporate natural light into a space. When this is the case, try using artificial light to achieve a glow and balance. Under cabinet lighting is a great way to illuminate the kitchen at night without having wires visible.

Less is More – Clutter can make your kitchen look absolutely chaotic. In order to stray away from the mess, use clean and simple lines to make your kitchen feel larger. By minimizing the amount of upper cabinets, you’ll be opening up counter access which offers a more spacious feel.

Make it Timeless – When investing money in a kitchen renovation, you’ll surely want a design that offers a timeless aesthetic. Simply put, you shouldn’t have to worry about a kitchen going out of style. While functionality and minor décor can be adjusted, the foundation should be good to use for years to come.

Add Storage – The designers at Granite State Cabinetry can easily add storage space to your kitchen without taking up any space. Say goodbye to clunky boxes and mismatched shelves! Our designers can identify pantries that offer a unique and fun space to store belongings. There is also an abundance of storage products that fit into drawers and cabinets!

Invest in Top-Notch Cabinetry – While it’s easy to replace appliances, cabinets are a more difficult process so it’s best to purchase a brand that withstands the test of time. If you purchase mediocre cabinetry, your cabinets will go out of style and you will end up spending much more in the long run.

Make a Seamless Transition – Islands are a smart way to transition the new space to the old. However, if an island does not work in your kitchen, implement another piece that provides a seamless transition between and the new space and the old.
