Ways to Make Your Kitchen Remodel Easier

Posted by Daniel Mizrahi on Tuesday, January 19, 2016

You’ve decided to remodel your kitchen…but now what? If you’re completely overwhelmed by kitchen layout ideas, kitchen renovation costs, and ideas for custom kitchen cabinets, take a second to breathe. Below are our tips for ways to make your kitchen remodel easier.

Splurge Once

Adding up the costs for an entire new kitchen can be daunting. Between the appliances, the flooring, the counters, and the cabinetry, you can be looking at a pretty hefty kitchen remodeling price tag if you don’t plan. Don’t feel like you need to update everything at once if it’s not in the budget. Start with just one splurge: new cabinets, maybe, or that marble countertop you’ve been dreaming about. You can then center your kitchen remodel around that one piece: and fill in the rest as your budget allows.

Mix Materials

Mixing materials and textures in your kitchen remodel comes with plenty of benefits. Aesthetically, it creates a visually interesting space, one that will draw the eye from surface to surface. But it’s a practical choice, too, especially if you’ve just chosen your one splurge purchase. You can decide where you want to put your money with a mix of differently priced materials. And if you’re ready to remodel parts of your kitchen, but not all of it, using a variety of materials allows you to lean into that choice. Pattern a particular material throughout your kitchen. For example, reclaimed wood on a kitchen island, as part of your breakfast nook, and maybe as a backsplash. Your mix of materials will end up looking both deliberate and beautiful (while secretly also being economical and practical).

Don’t Overthink Color

If you’ve ever spent two hours completely frozen in the paint color aisle, you know how overwhelming the seemingly endless color options can be. If you’re tempted to be doubly stressed by the kitchen, don’t be. Keep it simple: cabinets in a clean white look good in any kitchen. For the walls, color can be fun, but if you’re stuck, you can’t go wrong with a neutral: it will complement whatever materials and textures make up your current kitchen.
