The Most Common 5 Kitchen Styles
- Classic- The classic kitchen style is characterized by white or cream kitchen cabinets, simple architectural details, and black accents. A pristine and simple design gives homeowners a blank slate to decorate how they please. The style is versatile enough for various decors to be implemented easily.
- Coastal- The color scheme in a coastal kitchen is key to maintaining a calming mood. Cool shades of blue, seafoam green, light beige, and soft pinks provide an atmosphere that feels like vacation. Whites and cream colors are the base color of choice which creates a lively, refreshing atmosphere. You will see elements such as wicker seating and fabrics on the floor that can stand up to the wet clothing you wear outside. Light-colored curtains or blinds should be used so that the most sunlight can enter the home during daylight hours. Accents and backsplashes will feature beach themes or sea life features.
- Cottage Kitchen-Cottage kitchens are inspired by a smaller kitchen of the past and designed to feel comfortable and unpretentious. Beadboard, soft colors, vintage hardware, wood floors, colorful accents, and curtains will infuse your kitchen with a comfortable cottage look. It allows for personal collections of eclectic collectibles and antiques as design accents. Appliances can be either white or color such as retro.
- Contemporary Kitchen- Contemporary kitchens are a mix of new and old, casual and polished. The renovation will include modern gourmet cooking equipment, comfortable seating, and open space for guests to interact with cooks during entertaining. This kitchen has a sleek and simple look with strong horizontal features like frameless cabinetry.
- Modern- Sleek and sophisticated, the modern kitchen is designed to keep clutter to a minimum. Frameless cabinets, sleek and simple hardware, strong horizontal lines, a lack of ornamentation; are all things considered when thinking about modern kitchen designs. Reflective surfaces and high-tech materials are a central part of the most modern kitchen. Some aspects of industrial style might be included, such as an unfinished concrete wall.
Important Factors to Consider Other Than Major Elements
It’s not always the cabinet and countertop; we also have complementary aspects such as,
- Flooring, and
And always, it’s something which you need to consider. For example, if you’re looking to install a double sink in your kitchen, the type of sink is something we need to know during the remodeling process.
If you’re hoping for a single kitchen factor that embodies “more,” and an even more comprehensive process, the choice of your faucet is something that should be considered during kitchen remodeling, not after finishing the project.
To remodel a kitchen successfully you need to know what you’re looking at the kitchen, and what you need specific details for.
Not just sinks, flooring or tiles walls are important. Think about your white countertop with a lighter backsplash such as gray or black, to create contrast. What color and style are you going for? Knowing these details will shape your project from start to finish.
The Importance of Personal Preferences
In addition, it is essential to take into account your personal preferences. Because let’s say; If you like a lot of detail around you, then the mosaic tiles are perfect. If having to clean your tiles day in and out isn’t something you want to do, though, it’s better if they’re plainer– easier to clean.
So if you are searching for something easy to clean, we will not offer you a kitchen design with mosaics.
These considerations will factor into the decisions you make, and affect your final selections, it’s up to you how your kitchen is looking. Whether you’re picking a backsplash or accent piece, make sure to give your floors some love as well.
Because it is a part of your kitchen and the most important fact you need to keep in mind is that, while you are considering your kitchen remodel, consider every element as a whole. But don’t worry that you are going to be overwhelmed, we will guide you from the first step to the end step.
The Most Common 5 Floor Choices
- Wood- Wood has been a traditional material in kitchens, but the latest improvements make it a viable option again. Open-floor plans allow you to use the same material throughout adjoining living areas. Also, wood adds warmth to any size and style of kitchen.
- Cork- This often-overlooked natural material can be found in various colors and patterns, and it is a sustainable, warm, and slightly cushioned option. You should seal it to prevent water damage and clean the same as you would a hardwood floor.
- Ceramic Tile- As the market is bursting with offerings in this category, most of the choices are highly durable and fairly cheap. Select large pieces if you want your tile pattern to look more seamless. On the other hand, ceramic can be cold and uncomfortable if you stand on it for long periods.
- Linoleum- Linoleum, which is easy to clean, comes in sheets or as tiles in many colors. Linoleum has color throughout while vinyl can have a pattern imprinted on top of it.
- Vinyl- One of the most budget-friendly flooring and smooth flooring materials this year (about $10-$13 per square feet) is still giving traditional surfaces a run for their money as new technology helps it keep pace with many popular finishes: stone, wood, tile, and leather. Vinyl flooring is available in 6-foot wide sheets or 12-inch tiles for DIY enthusiasts. Easy to clean and soft underfoot, it can even be installed over hardwood floors for a hassle-free update.
How to Start, Budget for and Finish Your Kitchen Remodel: The Easiest Way
How does a kitchen remodeling project go from start to finish?
First, you must make a budget and decide what you want in your kitchen. You may have a $50,000 budget or maybe $5,000. You never know what’s going to happen when you’re looking at your situation. Your personal preferences and personality will shape your project and give you the best kitchen. It’s always important to know what you are working with when setting your budget.
The next step is to come into our showroom and talk with a kitchen designer. We have two options; a showroom appointment and a Zoom appointment. It is always possible to get a rough approximation of measurements before coming in and looking for structural changes. You can measure the width of each kitchen wall (taking into account any walls or windows) and then draw straight lines across all the walls that meet at right angles. Just a word about this, that’s what we need. And maybe the appliances.
We do know that most of the stones are 30 inches or so. Your dishwasher is going to be 20 or 24, just look at it and just tell us. Because when we are giving you an estimate, we just want to make this estimate as accurate as possible.
After Your Appointment, We’ll Design: Making Sure You Get Exactly What You Want
After our appointment and measurements, we’ll design. This phase is not available for Zoom because we can always show different samples and talk about your style according to your choice. So you have to come and we have to see you in person because we need to talk about that a lot. No worries.
The following steps are to finalize your plan. How do you plan out your project? For example, we give you a quote for one of the options that are in your budget.
If you confirm it, then we’re going to come to measure your kitchen and will give you some other quotes that match what you’re looking for.
We need to see how many square feet this project is going to keep for you and then we can make those final measurements. Then we’re going to come back to our showroom and make the final cut. That’s going to be our last decision. We’re going to add the final touches and if you like what we’ve made but, then you’ll agree with us on that.
Cabinet Delivery Process: Determining the Turn-Around Time
And then when we have the initial payment that we’re going to go ahead and talk about the delivery because we’re going to confirm that you ordered your cabinets. The turn-around time for an order should be 3 to 4 weeks, but it can sometimes take as long as 2 to 3 weeks or up to 6 or 7 weeks and on rare occasions more. Availability is the determining factor in how fast we will get you your order, though we have a very quick turnaround time most of the time.
When we have the cabinetry ready, the installation is going to start. We’re going to do something different in this phase because we don’t need your whole cabinetry ready to start the countertop installation. At the base cabinetry stage, our countertop team will be onsite to evaluate what’s been done and plan the next steps.
They will then start cutting the stone to final measurements as they cannot go with estimated drawings. They will do the countertop installation next. Probably your cabinet installation will be done at the same time as the countertop installation. After all, the backsplash, flooring, and all other details will be installed.
As the last step before you move on with your life, it’s time to enjoy your new kitchen! Everything is going to be ready and everything is ready to use- enjoy your new kitchen!
Working Collaboratively on Your Project
When you look at these six steps one by one, designing is just one day, give us one day working, we’re going to uh book your appointment, then walk in and then we’re just going to talk about that. In the next few days, we’re going to schedule another visit to your place to see the final measurements and then we’re going to order the cabinets. Then in the first phase installation usually takes about a week and countertop installation, it’s another week to come and do the template into the cut and come and bring and install it. So, this is how we work. We’re aware of the fact that you may have questions along the way and that there might be things in your home or project which may not get addressed because it wasn’t mentioned above. That’s why we’ll be answering any questions you might have, so when you work with us, everything will feel more familiar.
How Much Does a Full Kitchen Remodel Cost?
The first thing that needs to be considered when estimating Kitchen Remodel Cost is the type of materials used for your project. You’ll find there are various options related to what material will be installed: stainless steel appliances, low-gloss cabinets, natural stone countertops, etc., and each has its own prices per square meter in terms of price range as well as installation time required for completion (e.g., granite slabs.)
The national average for remodeling is about $22,000. The number you’ll see on the sticker will set a baseline, but many other factors affect cost. Your new kitchen could cost anywhere from $5,000 to $50,000 or more depending on the scale of your project. Most of the kitchen designs are customly created, so depending on the size, details and functionality, this cost may go up or down on a linear scale.
