Turn Your Kitchen Into A Dream With This Remodeling Strategy
It has been said time and again to homeowners throughout the Palisades and Chevy Chase neighborhoods that kitchens and bathrooms sell homes. No matter how many times we say it, we mean each time the words are spoken. Rather than starting from scratch or buying a new home, investing in a luxury kitchen remodeling project can make you think twice about selling your home and make you just as happy.
Creating islands and peninsulas are today’s equivalent of building additional walls that was so popular in years past. Open floor plans are the hottest trend in the home remodeling industry — especially in McLean VA — so rather than building a wall – tear one down! Opening the kitchen into the family room, dining room or other living spaces provides the best of both worlds. You are able to cook, while maintaining visual and vocal contact with your friends, family and guests.
Just because your new kitchen is more open and inviting to other areas of the home, that does not mean you should mask it from looking like a kitchen. Use dropped soffits, shallow ceiling-mounted kitchen cabinets and other low- to mid-hanging fixtures to subtly define the kitchen as its’ own space.
Have you considered the visual appeal of including a raised ceiling in your luxury kitchen remodeling? This growing trend in kitchen remodeling brings with it a sense of spaciousness, and is a complementing contrast to a lower ceiling in the dining room to create a sense of intimacy.
The creation of an expanded pantry will allow you the convenience of additional storage space, without cluttering your newly remodeled kitchen. Not only does this provide storage for food, you also can design your pantry to house little-used appliances until the need arises. For example, if you do not normally bake but do around the holiday season or when the mood strikes, storing your stand mixer and decorating supplies in the large pantry area will free-up counter space and keep your tools within reach.
