Kitchen remodeling is one way you can put some spark back into your cooking space. As these popular ideas show, livening up your kitchen can be a huge breath of fresh air.
Sometimes remodeling your kitchen can be as easy as changing the countertops. Concrete countertops are all the rage in 2014 because they can provide a variety of stunning looks for your kitchen without breaking the bank.
The concrete countertop is very customizable. It can come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. Not only can you have that beautiful look of stonework, it can also be simpler because the concrete countertop can include the sink all in one piece.
Revamp Kitchen Space with Open Shelves
A big trend in 2014 for kitchen remodeling is making your kitchen space feel and appear open. Even if you have a small kitchen a great way to achieve this feeling is open shelving. Martha Stewart magazine dubs this the ‘Open and Organized’ style and the best thing about the trend of open shelving is that it can be incorporated fairly easily with a variety of styles from modern to country style kitchens.
An All White Kitchen with Edgy Color
An all white kitchen is never out of style, matching the cabinets and countertops is a classic traditional trend. Far from looking stark or cold, the all-white kitchen allows you to be versatile, edgy and stylish by adding color that pops with your kitchen appliances and décor.
A Slab Backsplash
Why settle for a traditional row of tiles for a backsplash? An entire slab that continues up the wall, either to the ceiling or to the cabinets, is proving a winner in 2014. Continue that look of marble or granite from your countertops. It can even be done in concrete and still have the grain and textured appearance of stone.
The slab backsplash is easy to clean and frames your kitchen features superbly.
An Outdoor Kitchen
With Florida’s gorgeous weather, you don’t want to be stuck inside in the kitchen preparing a meal while everyone else is on the patio or in the pool. Consider having a kitchen installed outside under cover, possibly against the wall of your house. You can have a sink, countertop and cabinets integrated with your barbecue.
Install a concrete countertop that includes the sink in one piece because it will handle the climate for years and there won’t be any metal sink that can rust.
Be sure there’s a space for a fridge built in and you can prepare entire meals while enjoying a cool drink and never missing the action of the party.
