Looking for a home improvement project that really pays off? Consider a kitchen remodel project, which recoups an impressive 92.8% of the costs.
Even if you don’t plan to sell your home anytime soon, perhaps it’s time for a kitchen makeover for your own needs and enjoyment. The question now is: Where do you start?
Keep reading for five of the best kitchen remodel ideas we’re seeing in 2021.
1. Update the Backsplash
The quickest way to breathe new life into your kitchen’s appearance is with a snazzy new backsplash. It’s one of the most used and abused parts of your kitchen, and it also tends to be a focal point.
To keep things simple, try a fresh coat of paint in a bright, fun color. If you’re feeling artistic, grab a stencil and add a floral or geometric design. Or, if you’re ready for a bigger project, consider doing a tile mosaic for a really standout kitchen design.
2. Add a Decorative Range Hood
Gone are the days of hiding the ventilation components in your kitchen. One of the more interesting design trends we’ve seen this year is the switch to a decorative range hood that becomes a focal point of its own.
Make a statement with a hood that features veneer porcelain, marble, or wood tones. Square shapes with minimalistic styles are all the rage in 2021!
And remember, you don’t have to tackle major remodeling tasks on your own. If you need help, don’t hesitate to contact a company that specializes in home renovations.
3. Mix & Match Metal Fixtures
Who says all your metal fixtures have to match? Create warmth and visual intrigue by mixing up your metals (on purpose).
Choose different metals for your sinks, appliances, faucets, cabinet hardware, and lighting fixtures. Mix antique with modern and silver with bronze. You’ll love the unique, quirky results.
4. Get Smart (Appliances)
COVID-19 has created a huge demand for touchless faucets, and that’s just one example of why smart appliances are becoming more popular. We’re also seeing more brass and copper fixtures since both contain anti-microbial elements.
In addition, it’s time to swap out those old ovens and fridges for smarter models. You can monitor and control them from the touch of a button, even when you’re not home! They’ll also add tremendous resale value to your home if you ever decide to move.
5. Add an Island
Until it’s safe to travel to an actual island again, your kitchen will have to suffice. We’re all spending more time at home these days, so why not open up your kitchen to create an airer, more welcoming environment?
A kitchen island is the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine or chat with family members while you cook. Choose natural stone like marble or quartz for an eye-catching addition to your kitchen design.
