Kitchen Updates for your Maryland or Washington DC Home

Posted on: March 12, 2014

Kitchen Updates

As the heart of your home, your kitchen should be exactly how you want it-in terms of both aesthetics and functionality. Is yours up to par? If not, it’s the perfect time for an update! A kitchen update can not only help you better enjoy your space, but it also can help improve efficiency.

A good place to start is to consider what you don’t like about your current kitchen. What would you change first? Talking to professionals can get you on the right track and ensure your remodel goes smoothly and you get what you want. However, here are some generally popular kitchen upgrades you can start thinking about:


The cabinets take up a good portion of your kitchen space-they should be efficient but also look nice. Installing custom cabinetry can easily transform a room, even without a complete remodel. And there is no shortage of options to choose from!

A kitchen update that can have a major impact is the countertops. At our showroom, you can see different samplings of countertop materials-including quartz, granite, and marble.

Hardware & Fixtures

Installing new hardware and fixtures is another easy, cost-effective yet big-impact kitchen upgrade you can make. New faucets, cabinet hardware, light fixtures, and even a new range hood can enhance the look of your kitchen. Have a rustic style kitchen? Consider wrought iron or copper.

Stainless Steel

Do you like to do heavy-duty cooking? Often prepare large meals? A chef’s kitchen design can be helpful-and stainless steel, especially near the range, can complement that cook’s kitchen design and give the kitchen the authentic industrial look of a commercial kitchen, especially if you fill it with equipment from somewhere like Ian Boer. It can also give a kitchen a sleek, modern look.

Kitchen Upgrades

No matter your reasons for re-doing your kitchen, remodeling offers a number of benefits, including:

  • Higher efficiency
  • Better enjoyment
  • Enhanced aesthetics
  • More space
  • Improved storage
  • Higher home resale value (beneficial for those who are moving in the near future)
