When we talk about renovations, we must remember that kitchen renovations and bathroom renovations are among the most complex. It all depends on what we intend to do, but we must consider this because there are water pipes, drains, and wall coverings, among other things.
What has been said above should not scare us since it is a matter of doing things step by step and not in a hurry. Whenever we go into renovations, the question is how to save money. Can you save money on a renovation? Of course! The ideal is to get several estimates for reforms, then make the decision. Here are some handy kitchen renovation ideas.
Change the wall covering in the kitchen
Changing the kitchen walls’ look, especially behind the sink and the fire area, is crucial for a kitchen renovation. Today we can find a wide variety of porcelain, tiles, even stone cladding on the market. Carrying out this reformation in the kitchen may not be so difficult; after all, we are not moving anything from its place. If we are looking to renovate the kitchen, this is a possibility to consider.
Take advantage of high ceilings
The space we get above the kitchen can be beneficial for many purposes, from setting up a study, using it as a storehouse space, or even a guest bedroom. If we are lucky enough to have high roofs, the best idea is to carry out a reform in such a way as to have a double height. With this type of renovation, our house will gain more space to use.
Wooden floors in kitchen
Although many assume that wood in the kitchen is not a good companion, decorations lately show us that wooden floors are used more and more. There is also something important to know: porcelain tiles imitate wood, and the truth is that the result is impressive. In small kitchens, a dark wooden floor might not be a good ally, but fortunately, there are different types of wood or imitations of this material. The optimal thing for small spaces is always to use light colors, so picking a color as light as possible would be convenient.
Kitchen renovations: Integrating spaces
Many homes are being built with the kitchen combined into the dining room. Many reforms are carried out in homes where clients decide to integrate the kitchen with the dining room and even the living room. It depends on each home, is generally accomplished by pulling a partition or wall. We cannot remove a wall or column because certain walls support the house’s structure, and if a company or contractor that understands the subject does not do it, our house may be at risk. For this type of reform, it is necessary to go to specialists.
Finally, we will talk about an element that we love, and they are the kitchen islands. It is reasonably one of the kitchen renovations that take more budget and time. To be able to install an island in the kitchen, you need space. These islands are generally executed in very spacious kitchens or kitchens integrated into the dining room. That is why it is often necessary to reform before installing a kitchen island, and we refer to removing a wall. For those who like to cook and have plenty of space for it, kitchen islands are heaven. They also serve as a bar for breakfast or even to eat quickly. We hope they inspire you when it comes to undertaking a reform.
