Every homeowner has a room that acts as the centerpiece of their house. It may be your entertainment room with gorgeous leather couches and the best flat screen television the market has to offer, or your garage full of huge toolboxes with their contents immaculately organized. Or, if you are a fan of hosting parties, baking up a frenzy in the holidays, or just having a top of the line room to serve as the hub of activity in your house, you may choose to focus your home remodeling efforts on your kitchen.
Kitchen remodels can be quick, DIY projects that are finished in a Saturday afternoon, or deeply involved commitments that require construction and contractors. No matter how dedicated you are to your kitchen upgrade (or how deep your pockets are), here are three quick kitchen refreshers that have a high aesthetic and functional yield with relatively low efforts and costs.
You can choose your flooring material based on trendiness and visual appeal (like cork, hardwood, stone floors) or by its ability to stand up to wear and tear (like linoleum or porcelain tile). Keep in mind that choosing one quality of flooring may sacrifice others, so make sure you choose the material that fits your kitchen vision but is a sound long term investment.
A kitchen remodel will not only boost your morale, but also your home’s value. In fact, homeowners who have a minor kitchen remodel can expect a return on investment of over 80%. Whether you choose to spruce up your cabinets, modernize your lighting or rip out the 1980s vinyl flooring, your kitchen (and you) will emerge feeling brand new.
