While we work with homeowners to achieve all sorts of improvements, kitchen renovations are definitely the most popular project. There’s a lot of reasons for this, with the main one being technology advances and style trends causing kitchens to look dated far faster than any other room in the house.
Here is Weston, you see a lot of that classic New England approach to kitchen design in older homes. This means relatively small rooms, designed to stay warm and cozy during long winters. That often means a dark or somewhat depressing space, as windows tend to be few and far between.
If you’d like to achieve a brighter, more cheerful kitchen, here’s what you should be talking to your kitchen renovation contractor about:
Natural Daylight: Good kitchen design will maximize the amount of natural daylight entering the space. This can include adding multiple windows to the kitchen design, building a bump-out sunroom addition, or even adding a three-season porch that can be accessed via French or sliding doors. And don’t forget to look up – skylights can add lots of light, brightening even the darkest kitchens.
Smart Use of Color: Color is the easiest way to impact the mood. Talk to your Weston kitchen renovation team about ways to integrate the colors that make you and your family happy into your kitchen design. Your options run the gamut from paint and wall treatments, cabinetry, appliance and fixture finishes, artwork, stained glass windows, and more.
Make Life Easy Technology: For busy families, the happiest kitchen is the one that functions with a minimum of headache and hassle. Whether that’s opting for easy-clean sustainable surfaces, smart appliances that can keep track of your groceries & update your shopping list when supplies get low, or the convenience that comes with having a refrigerated drawer specifically for the kid’s snacks, your kitchen designer can help you make it happen.
