Kitchen Updates to Make in Your 2020 Remodel
The kitchen is the heart of the home no matter how it looks, but wouldn’t you rather have a kitchen you enjoy spending time in rather than one that you hate to look at? If you are considering a remodel, you have probably noticed that kitchen trends are constantly changing and it can be hard to keep up. If you want to stay on-trend not just in 2020 but for years to come, consider making these timeless kitchen updates.
Updating your kitchen counters is an update that requires a little more time and money, but it’s worth it. try to find counters that are made of high-quality and durable materials. Then, opt for a timeless neutral color rather than something bright or bold. New counters should be designed and installed by a professional for the best results.
Your kitchen cabinets are one of the easiest ways to update your kitchen, and you don’t always have to opt for a full cabinet replacement. You can do this upgrade in one of two ways. First, you can replace the kitchen cabinet doors to something more modern. This allows you to leave the base of the cabinets installed while still changing the look. Another even more affordable way to upgrade your kitchen cabinets is to paint them. This is the perfect time to add bright colors or funky designs that may not stay in style forever. When the trends change, you can just repaint the cabinets again! New hardware is a great addition to freshly painted kitchen cabinets. Changing the hardware on your cabinets is something quick and affordable that you can confidently do yourself. Choose matching hardware for cabinets and drawer pulls to create a cohesive look throughout the kitchen.
The floors in your kitchen see a lot of foot traffic, so they’re likely due for an upgrade! Floors, similar to counters, tend to be a more costly kitchen update. It’s best to upgrade counters and cabinets first, then choose flooring that compliments those design choices. There are more affordable flooring options you can install yourself that will still look great, such as laminate hardwood that comes in a wide array of colors and textures!
