Kitchen Renovation: Upgrade or Expand Your Space

Posted on: May 20, 2011

Do you feel like your kitchen caters to your lifestyle and needs or is something missing? Your kitchen is the heart of your home, the place where your family spends the most time, whether it’s cooking, eating, entertaining or just hanging out and helping your kids with homework. Therefore, it should look, feel and function exactly how you want it to. Life is too short NOT to have the perfect kitchen!

Sometimes a new kitchen design can help you see that your kitchen space isn’t being fully utilized and highlight different ways it could live up to its true potential. Do you wish your dark galley kitchen was more light and airy? Could your small kitchen use more space? Is it finally time to upgrade and modernize the historic kitchen you’ve had forever? Call Jack Rosen Custom Kitchens for your kitchen renovation design in Maryland, Washington, DC or Northern Virginia – we’ve done literally hundreds of kitchens over the years, and in all likelihood, we’ve seen what turns out best in kitchens just like yours!

What to Consider for Your Kitchen Renovation

We understand that your kitchen needs to do more than just look beautiful – function is the most important aspect of a great kitchen renovation project. Ask yourself how the kitchen is primarily used. Do you mostly use it for serious cooking and entertaining? Or do you eat out more often than not and mainly use your kitchen for a quick few minutes on your way out the door in the morning?

Think about your lifestyle and how your kitchen will be best suited to match it – and we can help with this process. The beauty of a custom kitchen renovation lies in the individuality of the style – the design for your kitchen renovation is custom-tailored to meet your every need.

Would a breakfast bar with stools be more compatible with your modern, on-the-go lifestyle than a beautiful table with a chandelier above it? Could your kitchen benefit from more natural light? Consider a large window or even some sliding sash uPVC windows. If your kitchen is already light but is too cramped, our expert kitchen designers can help you come up with a smart kitchen renovation that maximizes space without sacrificing the existing architectural style (or figuring out a new one if you want to upgrade the style of your kitchen).

Kitchen Renovation: Expansion Project

One great way to maximize space in your kitchen is a bump-out addition. By removing an adjacent wall and creating more space, you can give your home a more open feel and facilitate easier movement; this is especially handy for those who cook and entertain a lot and need to walk to and from the kitchen and dining area. Or, for instance, if you have a back porch or deck you rarely use, consider expanding your kitchen and making better use out of that space.

If storage is an issue and makes your kitchen feel a bit cramped and chaotic, don’t worry – there are many potentially easy fixes. Several design features – including roll-out shelving, vertically stacked drawers and frameless cabinets – can help expand the space and make your kitchen less cluttered (as well as increase usable cabinet space)!

Upgrading Your Kitchen

Have you had the same kitchen forever and feel it could use a more modern flair? Stainless steel is more contemporary than wood – and is extremely easy to clean! A combination of wood and stainless steel makes for a good transitional look if you want to upgrade your kitchen while preserving some traditional design features.

So many possibilities – but the most important decision is choosing the right kitchen design and renovation company. Whether you want to upgrade or expand – or both – we can help you with the design of your kitchen renovation project!
