MAKE YOUR KITCHEN MORE ENTERTAINING FOR THE HOLIDAYS

EVERY DINNER PARTY HOST WANTS TO WOW THEIR FRIENDS AND FAMILY WITH A WELCOMING KITCHEN DESIGN.

WHILE YOU MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO COMPLETE A GRANDIOSE KITCHEN REMODEL BEFORE THE HOLIDAYS THIS YEAR, YOU’LL STILL BE ABLE TO MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR SPACE THROUGH THE UTILIZATION OF LIGHTING, COUNTERTOPS, AND SEATING. OUR EXPERTS HAVE GATHERED SEVERAL HOME IMPROVEMENT TIPS THAT CAN ENHANCE YOUR GUESTS EXPERIENCE DURING A HOLIDAY PARTY.

HIDE COUNTERTOP APPLIANCES

FEW THINGS BRING DOWN A SPACE MORE THAN UNNECESSARY CLUTTER. REMOVE SMALL APPLIANCES FROM THE COUNTERTOPS TO CREATE A SLEEK, OPEN APPEARANCE. 

REFRESH WINDOW TREATMENTS

RETIRE YOUR DATED CURTAINS AND REPLACE THEM WITH STYLISH NEW WINDOW TREATMENTS. THIS SIMPLE UPGRADE WILL CHANGE THE AESTHETIC OF YOUR ENTIRE KITCHEN.

UPDATE LIGHTING

CHANGE YOUR CURRENT LIGHTING FIXTURES AND OPT FOR AN ELEGANT CONVERSATION PIECE SUCH AS A STUNNING PENDANT OR CHANDELIER. 

CREATING THE ILLUSION OF STAINLESS STEEL

APPLYING A PAINT-ON STAINLESS STEEL FINISH WILL GIVE YOUR WORN-OUT APPLIANCES A MUCH-NEEDED FACELIFT UNTIL YOU CAN SCHEDULE YOUR KITCHEN REMODEL. TAKE CAUTION AS THERE ARE SEVERAL OPTIONS OF LIQUID STAINLESS STEEL AVAILABLE DEPENDING ON THE INTENDED APPLIANCE AND ITS USE.

MODERNIZE CABINET DOORS

UPGRADE YOUR CABINET DOORS WITH A FRESH COAT OF PAINT. IN SOME AREAS, YOU MAY CHOOSE TO REMOVE DOORS ALTOGETHER TO ALLOW SPACE TO SHOWCASE YOUR FINEST PIECES. 

REPLACE HARDWARE

EXCHANGING YOUR OUTDATED HARDWARE WITH UNIQUE DRAWER AND CABINET PULLS CAN INSTANTLY REJUVENATE THE OVERALL LOOK OF YOUR KITCHEN.

ILLUMINATE SPACE WITH LIGHTER COLORS

REFRESHING YOUR KITCHEN WALLS WITH A COAT OF LIGHT COLORED PAINT WILL BRIGHTEN YOUR SPACE AND GIVE THE ILLUSION OF A LARGER AREA TO ENTERTAIN IN. 

INCORPORATE ARTWORK

ADORN YOUR WALLS WITH LARGE, BOLD ART PIECES TO INSTANTLY ELEVATE YOUR ROOM AND CREATE THE APPEARANCE OF A LARGER SPACE.

ENHANCE DINING AREAS

ADD FINISHING TOUCHES LIKE CHIC CENTERPIECES AND FRESH FLOWERS TO BUFFET TABLES, COFFEE BARS, AND DINING AREAS TO PROVIDE YOUR GUESTS WITH A POLISHED AND FESTIVE AREA TO ENJOY THEMSELVES IN. 

PAY ATTENTION TO POTENTIAL PROBLEM AREAS AT YOUR NEXT HOLIDAY GATHERING TO PLAN YOUR PERFECT KITCHEN REMODEL

YOUR UPCOMING HOLIDAY GATHERING IS THE PERFECT TIME TO DETERMINE AREAS OF YOUR KITCHEN THAT AREN’T INDICATIVE OF YOUR CURRENT LIFESTYLE. 

DETERMINE THE STATE OF YOUR KITCHEN SURROUNDINGS

ARE YOUR COUNTERTOPS CHIPPED, CRACKED, OR SIMPLY UNATTRACTIVE?

ARE YOUR CABINETS OUTDATED, DAMAGED, OR FAIL TO MEET YOUR CURRENT STORAGE NEEDS?

ARE YOUR WALLS DINGY, DAMAGED, HAVE CHIPPING PAINT, OR RIPPED WALLPAPER?

IF YOUR KITCHEN IS CARPETED, IS THE CARPET WORN, THIN, OR BEYOND CLEANING? IF YOU HAVE A TILE FLOOR, DO YOU HAVE MISSING, LOOSE, OR DAMAGED TILES? IF YOUR KITCHEN FLOORING IS LAMINATE, IS IT TORN, LOOSE, OR DAMAGED?

ARE YOUR APPLIANCES WORN OUT AND PAST THEIR PRIME? 

DETERMINE YOUR CURRENT NEEDS

DO YOU HAVE ENOUGH STORAGE SPACE? WOULD YOU BENEFIT FROM HAVING MORE CABINETS OR SHELVING INSTALLED?

DO YOU HAVE ENOUGH MEAL PREPARATION SPACE? WOULD YOU FIND A KITCHEN ISLAND OR EXTENDED COUNTER SPACE HELPFUL?

DO YOU HAVE ENOUGH SEATING SPACE TO ENSURE YOUR GUESTS ARE COMFORTABLE WHEN THEY VISIT? WOULD ADDING A BREAKFAST NOOK SOLVE THIS ISSUE OR WOULD YOU PREFER TO INCREASE THE SIZE OF YOUR KITCHEN AREA?

DO YOU HAVE THE APPLIANCES YOU NEED SUCH AS A DISHWASHER OR GARBAGE DISPOSAL?

IF YOU ENTERTAIN OFTEN, WOULD A SEPARATE BAR AREA BETTER ACCOMMODATE YOUR NEEDS?
