Get ready for that annual labor day party in style by remodeling the kitchen. Not only can remodeling increase kitchen functionality but it will also impress your friends and make you feel great. Seattle contractor, Better Builders, is here to talk about three components of kitchen remodels that will help improve your kitchen and your life.
One of the most important parts of your kitchen is the countertop. You use it all the time whether that be to to set your groceries on or to prepare your food. Nothing is worse than disgusting old countertops. Granite is a highly demanded countertop upgrade because it is extremely durable and will last a lifetime. Its a very beautiful natural stone and comes in many varieties. It is also extremely easy to clean which is one of its greatest functional benefits.
Appliances are only meant to last for so long but there are people that seem to miss the benefits of upgrading your kitchen appliances. Technology has gone a long way in the past 30 years and kitchen appliances have improved along with it. You can save space by buying a microwave/convection oven combination or trick your friends by disguising your refrigerator as a cabinet. Everything is much more efficient these days and although it's a big cost now, it will create huge savings in the long run.
Lighting is another exciting kitchen upgrade which is functional but also visually appealing. Lighting can be used in a variety of ways to maximize its effectiveness just for you. You can set up lights in multiple areas, facing multiple directions so that anywhere you need light, you have light. This is a great help when trying to cook when the sun’s gone down or before it has risen. It’s also nice to have the ability to dim the lights when you come in at midnight looking for a snack. Also, improving lighting can help to reduce energy costs by utilizing efficient light bulbs and being able to isolate lights so that they only light where they are needed.
These are just a few remodeling ideas that you could implement this summer but there is much more that can be done. These changes will make your kitchen look a lot brighter and more interesting while also increasing functionality and saving energy. A home remodel can be a huge task, so choosing a contractor is generally advisable to those with little experience in the field. Seattle based Better Builders can help you with all of your home remodeling needs be it a kitchen bathroom or your whole home.
