If the layout of your kitchen flows well and functions the way you want it to, you likely don't need to do a full remodel. Instead, consider a partial renovation of the space--a makeover, if you will.
When partially remodeling a kitchen, keep these four elements in mind. A good interior designer will help you make the right choices so that you don't regret your decisions on color, tile, and more. Change can be scary for some homeowners, but we're confident that you can move forward with the right team on your side.
#1 | Reface or paint your upper and lower cabinets
Since replacing cabinetry is a high ticket upgrade, we always try to use and refurbish the existing cabinets during a partial remodel. Having the cabinets professionally refaced or repainted and paired with updated hardware is a great way to feel like you've gotten new cabinets without the lead time of ordering and installing a custom design.
#2 | Select a new countertop and backsplash
Is your backsplash dated? How old is your countertop? Make a statement with a new tile backsplash and a Cambria quartz countertop.
To dress it up, we suggest using a different countertop color on the kitchen island, if you have one.
#3 | Specify new flooring and wall colors
If you love your existing tile or hardwood, feel free to keep it. However, if you're looking for a flooring upgrade that withstands moisture and high traffic, look no further than luxury vinyl planks (LVP).
The wood appearance of LVP brings high end design to any kitchen and means you don't have to worry about standing water damaging real wood floors. Plus, LVP won't warp or shrink with use.
#4 | Update your dining set & bar stools
New dining furniture is a must, as this dresses up your space. Whether you add new upholstery to your chairs or fresh linens on the table, you need to make furniture and soft furnishings a priority.
