4 Simple Things to Avoid When Remodeling your Kitchen

Your kitchen is the focal point of the home and where families spend most of their time. The kitchen is also one area of the home that sees the most wear and tear. Think about all the water, heat, and food spills that can add up quickly. Whether you are thinking about remodeling your kitchen or are in the market to purchase a new home, it’s important to focus on quality and lasting appeal. Here are a few things you should look out for and avoid at all cost:

kitchen remodel

Cheap Laminate Countertops: The bottom rung of laminate is extremely susceptible to wear and tear. It can melt easily if you forget to place a hot pad under a pan that’s fresh out of the oven and the edges can chip off from repeated exposure to moisture and heat. The longevity of laminate is not ideal, so in order to avoid redoing countertops every few years, we suggest avoiding laminate.

Flat Paint: A flat or matte finish is great in rooms with lower traffic, but it’s a bad idea in the kitchen where the walls are regularly exposed to splatters and spills. You need paint that can withstand an occasional heavy scrubbing, so opt for gloss or semi-gloss finishes.

Trendy Backsplash: If you watch any home remodeling show, you’ll certainly see kitchens with expensive, elaborate backsplash designs and materials. Those trends can be pricey to pursue and can look dated in a hurry. Subway tile is a cheaper, classic option that you’ll never regret, plus you’ll have more room in your budget to purchase quality materials to be used elsewhere.

new kitchen

Cheap Flooring: Just like the countertops, your kitchen floor needs to be strong enough to take on some tough wear and tear. Cheap flooring easily scuffs and peels (especially from moisture). Quality flooring is well worth the investment and will look 10x better.
