Whether you are buying or selling a property, it is worth paying attention to the details in the kitchen. If you are buying, looking at the details will provide a better living experience especially if you love to cook, eat, and hang out together in the kitchen. If you are selling your house the details can make your house stand out among the competition. Here are a few broad categories to consider. It is important that all these categories connect and work together well.
Cabinetry, Counters and Appliances
Having nice cabinets, counters, and appliances builds the framework for a fantastic kitchen so start there. All the other details should connect to these in some way. Consider the finish on the cabinets, the type of countertops, and the color of your appliances. When the framework is in place and done well, it is time to think about the different finishes.
There is a wide range of options in this category. There is classic hard wood flooring that holds up well in the kitchen and can provide seamless flooring transitions to other parts of the house. If you have an open kitchen, hard woods are a good option. Hard wood can also be expensive, so laminate flooring with a hard wood look might be an excellent option. Laminates have come a long way in the last decade and are durable and beautiful. Next, tile is a really good option if your kitchen is not open to the rest of the home. It is durable and elegant. Some common different types include porcelain, ceramic, quarry, and marble. Finally, don’t forget about the accent rugs. Bring in a well-connected color pop into the kitchen with floor rugs!
Don’t let the area between your counter and cabinets be an afterthought! This is a cool opportunity to show some personality in the kitchen. There are so many options out there like 3D color tiles, pattern tiles, and bricks. Have fun!
Lighting is one of the main categories that can separate a nice kitchen from an extremely nice kitchen. So, besides the main lighting, consider under-cabinet lighting, toe-kick lighting, and pendant lighting. It will make a dramatic impact.
From historic Riverside to Atlantic Beach, we have seen some beautiful kitchens in the Jacksonville area, but we also see many kitchens that need some love. Although these broad categories will send you in the right direction, there are other smaller details that are important, too. There is furniture, cabinet hardware, appliance knobs and switches, and dishware. All these details should work in harmony together for a fantastic kitchen!
