There comes a time for every kitchen where some remodeling will be required. From a full interior overhaul, to replacing appliances, to just a fresh coat of paint, as a homeowner you can expect to remodel your kitchen at least once in the lifetime of your home. Whether your goal is clean, modern lines, a country farmhouse feel, an airy space for entertaining, or one of many other designs – whatever you have in mind, the experts at T.R. Young can help bring your ideas to life.

As the heart of your home, your kitchen should feel warm and welcoming, but that can feel like a daunting task when you’re working with a smaller space. That’s why our team works alongside you to make sure that we build the kitchen of your dreams, no matter what size it is. If you don’t quite know where to start and need some guidance, we can help with that too. With a multitude of custom cabinets, energy-efficient appliances, and exciting design options, we can craft a blueprint that meets both your needs and your budget.

To help you get started, here are a few ideas for your next kitchen remodel.

Space-Saving Upgrades

If you live in a home with limited kitchen space, you might think it’s not worth remodeling your kitchen at all.  However, living in a smaller space can sometimes allow for more creativity. By adding features like hidden appliances, where your refrigerator and dishwasher are designed to match your cabinetry, you can visually expand your space to give it a larger feel. Additionally, using light, neutral colors, such as whites and light greys, can also make your kitchen seem bigger and brighter, particularly if you have nearby natural lighting.

Add an Island

Adding an island can give your kitchen a brand new look without altering much. By matching it to your current style, it can make your kitchen more functional while adding some flair. An island also gives you additional countertop space, as well as storage; and if you choose an island with a butcher block countertop, you’ll get a bonus meal prep area. Lastly, you don’t need a large kitchen area to add an island – there are plenty of options for smaller spaces, too.

Slide-Out Cabinets

If you’re planning to renovate your cabinets, make sure you talk to your remodel team about the various space-efficient options available to you. Features such as slide-out cabinets can be a substitute for regular cabinets, allowing you to easily access and store away small kitchen appliances. They can also house built-in cutting boards, knife blocks, spice racks, hanging cookware – whatever you’re looking to stow away, there are a multitude of uses for this type of cabinetry.

Don’t let a small kitchen stop you from realizing the potential of your space. At T.R. Young, we have over thirty years of experience working on home improvement projects big and small. To discuss your ideas and to find out what we can do for you, call us today for a consultation.
