Classic Choices For Your Denver Kitchen Remodeling Project


March 22, 2017

Are you preparing to remodel your kitchen? Some homeowners choose countertops, cabinets, and flooring based on what’s trendy at the moment. But, if you want your kitchen to look timeless and classic, you shouldn’t make your decisions based on what’s trending. Here are some classic choices for your Denver kitchen remodeling project:

Tiled Backsplashes

If you flip through an interior design magazine, you may see that many trendsetters are recommending that you use mirrors, metallics, or even wallpaper for your kitchen backsplash. But, these are trendy options that won’t be in style forever. If you want your backsplash to be timeless, choose a tiled backsplash in a neutral color. Tile is durable and easy to clean, so if you cook a lot in your kitchen, you don’t have to worry about ruining your backsplash. See the 30 trendiest kitchen backsplashes so you know what to stay away from.

Counter Space

It’s common to hear a homeowner say that he wishes he had more counter space in the kitchen, but have you ever heard someone say they wish they didn’t have so much space? Of course not—you can never go wrong with planning for plenty of space in your kitchen. If you don’t already have one, try adding in an island to give yourself more counter space, storage space, and seating. On one side of the island, you can chop vegetables or prepare food, and on the other side, you can place a row of small bar stools so guests have a place to sit and relax while entertaining.

The Color White

There are dozens of different color options for your countertops, cabinets, appliances, cabinet pulls, backsplash, and flooring. Sorting through all of the different colors and narrowing down your choices can be difficult. What should you do? When in doubt, pick white. White is a classic choice that never goes out of style—especially in the kitchen. Consider white marble for the countertops, white subway tiles for the backsplash, and soft white wood for the cabinets. You can either go all out and create an all-white kitchen, or you can choose white for one area and use color in another. For example, pair white cabinets with a colored granite countertop or brightly colored tile backsplash.

Big Sinks

Homeowners often make the mistake of choosing a small sink so they can have more counter space. But if your sink isn’t large, you may have trouble doing the dishes or filling a pot with water, so be sure to choose a spacious sink when remodeling your kitchen. Look for a sink that is both deep and wide so you can maximize the amount of space you have. You should also pick a faucet with a flexible neck to make cleaning the kitchen after dinner much easier.
