Components of Kitchen Remodeling

Many homeowners like to update and upgrade their homes, be it for added comfort, regular maintenance, or to increase the resale value of the house. The kitchen is one of the most common areas of remodelling and usually the one with the biggest potential.

And there are many different types of kitchen remodel. Aside from cosmetic upgrades such as the colour palette, there are many benefits, such as upgrading the appliances, adding more natural light or better utilization of space. There are many important aspects to take into consideration, and our free guide will give you some insight into the major components of kitchen remodelling.

5 Major Components of Kitchen Remodelling

Generally, we can identify five main components of kitchen remodelling.

The Kitchen’s Layout

While kitchens are mainly used for cooking, they are far more than that. In many homes, they also play an important role in social life, to socialise with family and friends, so it is important to study the layout of your kitchen to see if and how it can optimise the available space.

The core of the kitchen is the so-called ‘magic triangle’ of the stove or oven, the refrigerator and the sink, so it is important to ensure to have these three elements placed as efficiently as possible. However, beyond this, you should look at the available space to see how you can maximise and optimise it for other activities than cooking, such as eating, socializing and more.

One great way to achieve this is through a kitchen island. It can add additional counter space but also provide room to set out food and drink or socialise while preparing food or after. It can also hold additional storage space or feature extra electrical outlets to operate or charge small appliances and devices.

Your Materials

The choice of materials is very important for kitchen remodelling. It will not only be a major factor in the visuals but also affect the quality and cost of your project. With the help of a designer, you can define the colour palette of your kitchen and, through this, choose materials and colours as well as get an idea of which options you have available within your budget.

One of the trending kitchen remodeling ideas in 2023 is to opt for neutral colours for your flooring tiles, a monochrome palette on your cabinetry and marble or quartz countertops. Don’t be afraid to invest in light-coloured wood flooring with white or light grey cabinets and a beautiful marble countertop for your dinner table.

The right choice of wall or cabinet colour also can make a big impact on your kitchen. While light colours will give your kitchen a timeless look, vibrant colours can add more life and energy to a kitchen. And whichever choice you make can have a significant impact on the resale value of your property.

Lighting and Electrical

While a kitchen works best with a lot of natural light, sometimes the layout of a house does not allow for additional windows. In cases like this, an investment in quality light fixtures is a must. There are many options, such as lights within the countertops or on the wall above your stovetop. You can also opt for recess lighting, a nice ceiling lamp over your kitchen island or a standing lamp to finish a corner. Lighting can be as much a matter of convenience as it can be of style.

Invest in Good-quality Appliances

Many homeowners consider the kitchen to be the heart of a home, so they often put extra care into making sure that it has all the amenities and luxuries possible. One area that most homeowners will invest in is high-quality, luxury appliances.

In the last few years and decades, appliances have made big technological advances that not only have added many additional features but also have increased their energy efficiency and durability.

Think About Storage

There is a saying that there is no such thing as having too much storage. Depending on the size of your kitchen, storage can be a highly valuable space. So when looking at your kitchen layout, it is important to take this into consideration. As mentioned before, a kitchen island can add a lot of storage space, but another great idea is a walk-in pantry, which is not just a potential design feature but also a great utility to organise your kitchen.

If you have a smaller kitchen, then creating a visual illusion of more space is vital. For instance, you can opt for open cabinets rather than keeping your plates and mugs stored in a closed area, which will give your kitchen a more open feeling.
