Kitchens are the Most Remodeled Room in the House

Kitchen Remodeling in Metro West Boston

Kitchens are the most remodeled room in the house. Typically the kitchen area is also the center of activity, the conference room of the home, the dining area, the absolute hub.  The kitchen is the most viewed area in your home and for that matter the greatest investment in a remodeling project.

People remodel for numerous reasons including design, functionality, resale value, entertaining, and style. Whatever your reason may be, here are a few ideas that may contribute to your ideal kitchen remodeling project.

  • When addressing the kitchen from a complete remodel or custom home build, design the kitchen facing east to catch the morning sun. But remember to use UV protection windows to protect wood flooring and furniture from fading.
  • Appliances – A few brands really rise above the rest. Stick to Energy Star Rated Appliances for efficiency
  • Walk-in Pantry Closet
  • Countertops – There are many viable options for countertops. The composition, grain, and color are all important aspects of the design of your kitchen. Granite, Quarts, and Concrete are among the most popular types.
  • Flooring – Two types of flooring are used in kitchen remodels, Wood and tile. After asking our professionals a stained wide quarter sawn oak floor is a nice option. Meet that with a 12×12 tile between the island and work zone and you have a beautiful combination.
  • Kitchen Island – are a perfect addition to a kitchen. The island can house the dishwasher as well as a recommended prep sink with a separate filtered cold water tap.

As we move away from the kitchen remember, functionality and accessibility are key aspects of a home. A well designed home will create open space. For storage and accessibility, a butler’s pantry separating kitchen and dining room serves as extra cabinet space and serving buffer zone.

With the kitchen being the focal point of the home, it is also nice for it to have a separate entrance. Entering the home through a mudroom with cabinetry and coat hooks is one way at achieving this feature.
