Kitchen Design Top Remodeling Projects

Christiansburg kitchen remodeling will never go out of style-it remains one of the top remodeling projects homeowners invest in. Even just a minor kitchen remodel can make a big impact in terms of both functionality and aesthetics (and add value to your home).

A partial redesign or minor kitchen remodel can include installing new:

  • Cabinets
  • Countertops
  • Backsplash tiles
  • Energy-efficient major appliances (ranges, refrigerators, etc.)


New cabinets-even new cabinet fronts-can give your kitchen the fresh look it needs. The Jack Rosen team offers custom cabinets that will give you plenty of options when it comes to style, design, and color. Need design inspiration? We have some cabinetry ideas!

Kitchen Design: Cabinetry


From granite to quartz to butcher block, your choices are nearly limitless-and you have different countertop finish options as well! There is something for everybody, whether your top priorities are beauty, low maintenance, or anything else. Just make sure your countertop material complements your lifestyle and needs, which we can help with.


A backsplash not only protects your walls from water damage, but it can serve as a beautiful focal point and enhance the overall design of the kitchen. For instance, if you want a more contemporary look for your space, glass mosaic or metal tiles can do the trick. Subway tiles provide a strong classic look.


More and more homeowners today prefer appliances that:

  • Don’t stand out
  • Are energy-efficient

Appliance garages are seamless, convenient ways to hide away everyday appliances, like toasters, blenders, and coffeemakers, while keeping them within easy access. For larger appliances such as fridges and ranges, energy efficiency is a top priority (and there are ways to seamlessly integrate them into the overall kitchen design). Homeowners tend to opt for energy-efficient appliances because it can save them from wasting energy, which should reduce their energy bills. With these energy-efficient appliances, homeowners should notice that they are using less energy. They could consider finding better energy deals if this is the case. That could save them some money. If any homeowners want some other ideas to make their homes more energy-efficient, it might be worth visiting some online websites to learn more.
