Cabinets in the Kitchen

Cabinets of all Kinds

Updating your kitchen to keep up with what’s trending can be a lot of fun. What is trending now days though? When updating anything in your home you always want to be in the loop on what’s in and what’s not. You could always just decide to go with what you like vs. what’s trending. Just know you have more than plenty options.

Types of cabinets

Depending on your preferred style, you can be sure there are many options to choose from. Don’t be afraid to head to your nearest Home Improvement store to explore a little. Things like this take time. You can go with stained wood, rustic alder, maple and even oak. You can also choose the texture and even grain patterns. It all boils down to type, color and grain.

Handles or no Handles

Each household likes different things. Some homes have cabinets with handles and some don’t. it is good to have handles on the cabinets in your home if you have little one’s running around. This way you only really have to focus on wiping down the handles when cleaning instead of the whole cabinet. Greasy or food filled hands can eventually take a toll on your finish. To keep them looking new I recommend handles.

Working with a budget

Give yourself a budget with plenty of room for adjustments. Take into consideration all of your options and plan accordingly. Most companies require 4 to 6 weeks in advance for orders. It generally takes that long for the product to be shipped out. Sometimes ordering your cabinets online may come with a discounted rate.

The finished product

After all the hard work and effort you can finally enjoy the finished product. You might feel like you have a whole different home. Adjusting one area might give you a whole new outlook. Show it off to friends and family. Be proud and enjoy your new kitchen.


Backsplash says a lot

Backsplash for looks

When you go into someone’s kitchen their Backsplash is easily noticed. A Backsplash can say a lot about the kitchen itself. Some have it for looks. Some add a little piece of themselves into it. They can be used to show someone’s personality or the style of decor they enjoy. Others may just take the simple look.

Brighten up the Kitchen

The beautiful green color in this kitchen really makes this area stand out. It brightens up the room and gives it a nice touch. Using bright colors can make a room look bigger in almost all circumstances. That’s why most people say not to paint your walls with dark colors if you want a more spacious look.

Getting Crafty

Some Backsplashes are full of family memories and they turn out beautiful. You can take some old coffee cups, bowls from your grandmother’s cabinet or even use plates you have no use for. Break the dishes into a lot of creative little pieces and use them to decorate. Paste them on the walls for a more creative and different outlook. You will have made some space in your cabinets, but you will still have the memories to enjoy for years to come.

Which style fits you?

There are many types of Backsplashes you can choose from. Ceramic is one of the more popular styles. Stone gives a beautiful look as well. You will want to have a backsplash that will match well with your counter tops and cabinets. Also plan to use something that cleans easily or doesn’t hoard grease.

Modern Kitchen

The modern style has a very elegant look to it. It’s not often you see a kitchen done in a modern style and not like what you see. Most modern kitchens are seen with two walls covered in cabinets rather than shelves. The glass and marble look is a great idea and it fits perfectly with most cabinets. There is more room for your dishes and spices. Use a Backsplash that best represents you or your family; and your styles as a whole.

Remodeling Your Home

Remodeling Your Home

Remodeling Pro’s and Con’s

When remodeling your home there are always a million questions going through your mind. How much can I afford? Do I want to spend that much? The cons to remodeling can be overwhelming and cause you to over think. But the pros are very rewarding. There are ways to renovate your home and do it without breaking the bank. Make sure to consider all your options.

Giving Yourself a Budget

Make sure to look at your finances closely to come up with a budget. Having a budget can be very helpful for most. This way you make sure to plan within your financial bracket. Do some bargain shopping online or at home improvement stores locally. Sometimes you can find better deals online instead of actually in the store itself. Don’t be afraid to take your time while planning.

Reorganizing can help

It’s okay to think about remodeling, that’s normal. Try reorganizing things first before you make the jump to remodel. It could help you make up your mind. Before you start buying new things, rearrange and switch things up a bit. Changing things around can make things look different and seem different. The same thing can go for any other room in your home.

Stay on top of Things

If you’re looking to remodel quickly, you have to be good at time managing. Staying on top of the project is a must. If you lose focus you lose track of time. If this happens a project that is supposed to take 2 months can turn into 6 months easily. Also remember to plan for problems. Like any project issues can arise, just be prepared in case.

Enjoying Your Renovations

Once you are finished with all the hard work, be sure to take the time to enjoy what you have. Invite friends and family over for a dinner party or a gathering of some sort. Show off your hard work and enjoy it with them. Who knows maybe after they see what you have done to your home, they will consider doing theirs. You could have started a new trend!
