Let the demolition begin! If a kitchen remodeling project is in your future, it's time to drool over 12 possible kitchen updates to add to your wish list. From economical to luxurious, let's get started.
6. New lighting fixtures
Take your kitchen from drab to dynamic with new lighting fixtures. Highlight the old world style of your home by adding antique chandeliers and sconces, or go modern with recessed lighting and sleek drop-style aluminum fixtures. Consider a lighting fixture/ceiling fan combination to keep extra cool during humid summer days.
7. New kitchen cupboards and cabinets
The number one thing that gets replaced in a kitchen remodel is the cabinetry. But go beyond choosing a new finish or cabinetry pattern. Redesign your space. Consider building cabinets around the refrigerator, or placing storage cabinets on a wall that was once bare. Decorative corner shelving units also add extra storage space and a warm feel to a kitchen.
8. Mounted storage hooks
Want to look like a professional chef? Have a wall-mounted storage rack installed in your new kitchen. Imagine a flat panel of stainless steel with every type of sauce pan and skillet at arms-reach from the stovetop. Or have a grid-style rack hanging from the ceiling--above an island--to easily access drinking glasses.
9. A convection oven
If you're known for your sweet potato pie and can't imagine not baking dozens of cookies over the holidays, invest in a convection oven. These bake sweet treats more evenly than a traditional stove. If space is a premium, choose a convention oven with a standard bake setting for everyday meals. If you have the room, carve out a space just for your baking efforts: a convection oven, marble-top counter for rolling and kneading and a small range top for slow cooking syrups and candies.
10. Changing wall structures
Does your kitchen share a wall with the dining room? If you're taking the kitchen down to studs, this is the time to consider adding a serve-through counter or French doors, or getting rid of the wall altogether--if it's not a main support wall in your home.
11. A walk-in freezer or cooler
Older plantation homes often have deep kitchen pantries. Why not convert this room into a walk-in cooler or freezer? Consider this idea if you run a small catering business from your home, host huge holiday gatherings or simply need more cooled storage space.
12. New flooring
Tired of that old linoleum floor? Have stone, tile, slate or even wood floors put in the kitchen. With proper sealing and maintenance, your kitchen floor can look as great as the rest of your home. Add extra comfort by laying thick decorative foam mats by the sink and stove. Your feet and knees will thank you.
