Kitchens: Today's Kitchens

By: Ruby J Nowell

You don't have to be stuck making meals in a kitchen that's as dead as a doorknob. With a little imagination and some effort, you can create a great personalized look that will make your kitchen one of the best features in your home. Here are a few kitchen decorating ideas you can use to create a beautiful new space.

There are many options for updating your kitchen, ranging from easily accomplished, bare-bones budget plans, to a full kitchen remodel. With a full remodel, you can do a nice job with a relatively small budget or go for a complete luxury kitchen remodel. When it comes to what is available to update and remodel your kitchen, the sky is the limit!

Keep in mind also, that short of committing to a full kitchen remodel, it can be surprisingly easy and cost-effective to update your kitchen with a few new items and make it as welcoming and useable as possible. You could start by resurfacing cabinets, for instance, or installing new countertops or flooring.

How about re-tiling the backsplash with beautiful tiles that will complement your kitchen decor? Or consider getting new appliances. A beautiful new range or the spacious refrigerator you've always wanted can make change the look of your kitchen. Even something as simple as choosing new knobs and handles for cabinets and drawers can freshen the look of your kitchen and make a dramatic difference in how you feel about spending time there.

Many people choose to do a kitchen remodel to get rid of cramped, dark spaces. Adding light and an airy feel to kitchens is a big trend.

Your flooring should always reflect the theme of your kitchen. If the idea of being outside cooking is more your thing, consider an outdoor kitchen. A well-designed outdoor kitchen can also be an added bonus for your home with hours of fun for family and friends. No more indoor messes! The animals and kids can have a blast being loud!

To start, visit home improvement stores and wander the aisles, looking for ideas for your kitchen remodel. Leaf through kitchen magazines and study the ads and read the articles to familiarize yourself with what's available, including the many new products that are constantly being developed. Start to form ideas about what will and won't fit your budget. At this step, when you see all the possibilities for a new kitchen, you may decide to put a bit more into it than originally planned.

Once your eyes are open to the possibilities, visit your home improvement store or hire a kitchen designer or space planner and soon you'll be preparing a meal in your newly remodeled kitchen, surrounded by admiring family and friends.
