The Big Picture
It’s important for a homeowner to think of their kitchen as a whole. Even if they’re only renovating one aspect, that aspect should suit its surroundings well.
For instance, a new kitchen countertop will need to match well with the flooring, wall color, fixtures and cabinets. Perhaps you’d rather have the countertop stand out rather than blend in. Even so, you’d have to consider the many other features surrounding it.
If you’re planning a complete kitchen remodel, then you’ll need to consider all aspects of the kitchen. Not only for design purposes, but also for budgeting purposes.
Do your research on the different types of kitchen materials or visit your local home improvement store. Perhaps you can narrow down your choices online and then visit a store to look at samples. That’s probably the best way to go about it!
Toscana Remodeling will help you make the many important decisions. We can come up with an estimate so that you can determine whether or not what you chose will fit in your budget.
The kitchen remodeling aspects to consider:
- Countertops: Material, slab/tile, type of edge, installation
- Flooring: Material, square footage, installation
- Wall Color
- Cabinets: Size, installation
- Appliances and furniture: refrigerator, oven, dishwasher, microwave, kitchen table, etc.
Kitchen remodeling in Dallas can be quite complicated, but reputable remodeling contractors will greatly simplify the process from beginning to end.
No aspect of your kitchen will stand out more than countertops. With the many different materials available, you’ll be sure to find the best material for your kitchen!
Granite and quartz are most popular for countertops. They’re nearly eye-to-eye with regards to appearance, functionality and price. Every slab of granite and quartz is different from the others. The unique grain of each material will grab the attention of anyone who steps into your kitchen.
Marble and slate are your classiest, but most expensive options. Marble is porous, meaning that moisture can damage the surface by staining and discoloring the surface. That’s why most homeowners choose to install marble in less risky areas, like the entryway or living areas (usually as a flooring material).
Slate is also typically used as flooring. Homeowners tend to choose more economical options for countertops, like the granite and quartz we mentioned earlier.
You want your floor to fit in well with the rest of the kitchen. It shouldn’t detract from the elegance of the countertops, but it should provide a strong, bold base for the entire kitchen area.
Popular flooring options are porcelain or ceramic tile. Both types of tile come in a wide variety of colors. Both are also able to withstand heavy impacts, moisture, and humidity.
What’s the difference between porcelain and ceramic tile?
Porcelain has a moisture absorption rate of less than 0.5%. Any tile that has an absorption rate above 0.5% is labeled as “ceramic”.
Natural stone tile is becoming more and more popular as a flooring in Dallas kitchens. As long as the surface is sealed, natural stone materials like granite, travertine and limestone make for appealing flooring in a kitchen. The tile grout tends to be quite thin with natural stone flooring, so it’ll be easier to maintain.
Maintaining tile flooring is quite easy. After sealing the tiles, there’s not much to be done other than simply sweeping the floor every so often.
Hardwood is starting to become a popular flooring material as well. It’s a beautiful material, but it’s risky in a kitchen. Hardwood is more prone to moisture absorption than pretty much any type of flooring. Spills and steam will definitely threaten its structure.
The interior of your kitchen will get most of the attention, so don’t overthink wall color. Just know that white is a no-no these days. It’s too basic and reminds people too much of offices and retail stores.
Let your wall color compliment the rest of your kitchen design. Consider shades of gray, beige or green. The more natural light that your kitchen lets in, the bolder color choices you can make.
Your contractor will be able to give you advice with regards to your cabinetry. You’ll just have to confirm the style and type of cabinetry you want. Maybe you want your cabinets to rise all the way to the ceiling. Maybe you want adjustable shelves or pull-out droors.
You wouldn’t believe how many small adjustments can be made for cabinets. The experts will walk you through the different trypes of cabinetry so that you know you’re getting exactly what you want.
Fixtures are underrated aspects of kitchen remodeling in Dallas. They may be small and seem insignificant, but they can give a kitchen tons of character.
A pendant light is perfect to hang over a kitchen island or peninsula. Additionally, it’ll contribute to the overall kitchen design. Your contractor will have plenty of suggestions when it comes to choosing fixtures.
Finally, you’ll need to update your appliances. Honestly speaking, you can’t go wrong with stainless steel appliances. Stainless steel has been popular for many, many years. Either stainless steel or solid black appliances will be perfect for you modern kitchen.
Don’t worry about measurements, your contractor will handle those. Before we begin the renovation process, we’ll go over a detailed layout of how your kitchen will look once the project is completed. Your feedback is encouraged, but we have feeling you’ll like what we come up with.
