Find great design ideas and inspiration for all your home remodeling projects including kitchens, baths, bedrooms, dens, outdoors and more. Tip for homeowners: For those with a budget under $25,000 for a kitchen remodel, Anundson recommends focusing on resurfacing the countertops with a quality laminate finish, installing new lighting (recessed and under-cabinet), adding a tile backsplash and replacing the sink and faucet.
When you think about it logically, the kitchen is very often the hub of the home – it is the place that people choose to socialize when parties and entertaining occur, it is the place where great culinary delights are created and not only that but it is the place where happy families sit to enjoy a delicious meal while spending the time talking about their day.
We still want to spill more details about how we organized the kitchen (what we store where), what mistakes we made (oy, the mistakes!), how we made/stained our reclaimed shelves, and how we constructed these new built-ins in the living room (one of my favorite parts of the entire project!).
And I already had a kitchen faucet before where hot/cold where two separate knobs and hated it. They are gorgeous, but completely impractical when you have raw chicken or enchilada sauce on your hands—hmm, let’s get the temperature correct, a little turn of the knob on the left, a little turn of the knob on the right, nope too hot, let’s try again.
Whether you make the decision to simply change your kitchen countertops and cabinets, or change your kitchen counters, cabinets, sink, oven, floor tiles, and wall paint, there is a good chance that your kitchen may appear as if it is a whole, brand new kitchen.
