If you want to make an impact in your home and get the most out of your remodel the room to start in is the kitchen. The kitchen has the biggest impact on a home’s resale value. The kitchen is often the room that a new buyer will use when making the final decision. That is why it is important to make the room flow and have a great look. There are several aspects of a kitchen remodel you need to consider. You also want to know what type of remodel you want and a modern twist is a great way to go. A modern look is a way to add sophistication and design that will look great. Although it will be a more modern look the lines are usually so clean that it can last a long time without going out of style. Abco Design & Remodeling outlines what will make your kitchen remodel look and feel modern.
Bold Kitchen Cabinet & Wall Color Combination
One of the most common things that a modern kitchen has is the use of cold and white colors. The entire room is laid out using white for the paint color, white cabinets, white tile and counters. This sterile look does lend to a real focal room but more and more people want to go back to a bold look. You don’t have to drop the white color all together but you don’t want to wash out the room anymore. The best thing that you can do is to use white as a backdrop color and use a fun bold color for other areas. You can use a bold color such as red, blue and even green on the walls or even the cabinets. The bold color will give the room an area of focus and allow the room to be brought together.
Kitchen Countertop Materials
If you want to make a huge impact in the room and but you are not willing to use a bold color on the walls you can use the countertops. The countertops are a cool way to modernize the room. Many people choose to have the counters light and bright but a dark bold color is best. You can use natural stone that is then cut to fit your cabinets or the size of island that you choose. If you go with slate or granite as the material for your countertop you can go with a darker color such as blue, black or grey. You can use the same stone for a backsplash or to wrap the entire island.
Kitchen Layout Design Planner
The other aspect of remodeling your kitchen is to ensure that the room has a good flow. If you are already making changes it is a good time to look at the layout and to make any changes that are needed such as placement of appliances, sinks and windows. You can also look for chances to add windows and lights.
