Remodeling a Kitchen: Tips for You to Know
It is often said that the kitchen is the heart of the home. The kitchen is a central location for your family and guests, the source of sustenance, a place to gather, and the spot of memories in the making. Whether you want to improve its functionality or transform its look, determining how to renovate a kitchen to your liking is a big undertaking. Fortunately, Kitchens By Ambiance™ has the experience to help anyone remodel a kitchen to meet their needs.
Plan your Counter Space Wisely
Counter space is a luxury in some kitchens, and if you're taking the time to remodel, you can maximize functionality with minimal changes. Having adequate counter space close to the microwave, refrigerator, stove, and oven will help streamline the prepping and cooking process.
Another important consideration when choosing counters is counter height, location, and durability. A standard height of 36" is usually appropriate for most households. Staggered countertops may be a good option, if you want to designate separate cooking and eating areas. When adding counters or a kitchen island for more space, ensure it doesn't restrict the natural traffic flow. Choosing durable and stain-resistant kitchen countertops for your remodel will also help make cleanup and maintenance easier.
Kitchens By Ambiance™ hand-selects manufacturers that represent quality, like Cambria and Pompeii Quartz, to bring you custom selections. From laminate to natural stone to quartz, our many options will allow you to maintain the fresh, new look you want to achieve in your space without compromising functionality.
Add Storage, Not Space
There's rarely such a thing as too much storage. Even if you're not changing the layout, you can still add storage by installing kitchen cabinets that reach the ceiling. You can use additional height to store seasonal items like beautiful holiday platters, freeing lower cabinets for more frequently used items. Other unique storage options that we specialize in include spice racks, roll-out trays, 2-tier cutlery trays, and other solutions that mirror your unique workflow.
Another way to add storage is to utilize wall space. By incorporating storage as a decorative element, such as displaying an iron skillet collection on a mounted rack, or with our pot and pan organizers, you can maximize storage in an aesthetically pleasing way. You can create an uncluttered look by intentionally blending visual preferences with functionality. When choosing kitchen cabinets, a final consideration is to ensure the door can swing open without banging into other cabinets or appliances.
Working with an experienced designer from Kitchens By Ambiance™ will allow you to choose practical cabinets that ensure your kitchen is functional and beautiful. For instance, our best-selling lines of Ultracraft® and Omega cabinetry comes in exclusive colors like beige, smokehouse, gray, and super white to allow you to change your color palette but have a distinct look from other kitchens in Bonita Springs. Our designers will help you choose the perfect style of doors and cabinetry hardware to match your preferences for a customized experience.
Choose Flooring That Is Both Practical and Beautiful
Kitchen flooring is another significant factor when remodeling your kitchen. You not only want to choose the right color and design, but the material you choose is essential. Whether you're interested in stain-resistant vinyl flooring, or durable stone surfaces, we have a variety of different options to best fit your needs. Your designer can help you choose flooring from quality manufacturers like Shaw Flooring or CORETec while considering subflooring, appliances, and your other design preferences.
