7 Inspiring Kitchen Upgrades To Match Every Kind of Lifestyle

7 Inspiring Kitchen Upgrades To Match Every Kind of Lifestyle

There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to renovating your kitchen. What might appeal to a new homeowner or a Gen Y renter probably wouldn’t make much sense for a young family of five.

Below, we share the best ways to upgrade your kitchen based on your lifestyle;

If you love to cook…

Smartly designed appliances should take center stage. Devices such as LG Studio’s French Door Counter-Depth refrigerator features a front compartment to store the things you need easy access to, so you do not have to open the entire fridge every time you reach for them.

It’s terrific for cooks because they don’t have to dig into the back of the refrigerator—and let out cool air doing so—to find the things they are constantly using.

 If you love entertaining…

People who entertain and cook should invest in the best appliances out there. The truth is, it doesn’t matter how much time you spent picking out the backsplash if you stick something in the oven and it doesn’t work.

Also, if you have the room, add an island, whether it’s free-standing or built-in—there are a million options. It helps change the traffic pattern of the space.

If you are a design junkie…

Go deep into the accessories. What’s the runner in front of your sink? What’s that fabric you have upholstered your counter stools in? Do you have gorgeous pendant lights hanging down? What do your cutting boards look like, and how are they displayed?

Upgrade the tactile things that you touch every day and incorporate patterns and colors that you love.

If you are an empty nester…

Do an edit. You do not need a cabinet filled with dozens of cereal bowls anymore. Save a few for when the grandkids visit. Keep your best cookware and your prettiest linens, and donate the rest.

If you moved into a fixer-upper…

Start with the kitchen. It is the single most important renovation in terms of adding value to the home. Build exactly what you want, but always remain on the classic side of things. If it does not look like it was around in 1920, then it’s time to move on from the idea.

If you are a minimalist…

I like kitchens that are primarily designed to be under the counter, except for the range, the hood, and the refrigerator. Consider skipping upper cabinetry so that you have a wall to hang a black-and-white photograph or a favorite painting.

If you have an unlimited budget…

Use natural materials, like stone countertops that are an inch-and-a-half or two inches thick. Add custom cabinetry that is designed with anything you could dream of: spice organization, dividers, drawers lined in anti-tarnish cloth for your sterling.

Incorporate architectural salvage pieces into the design. For instance, a plaster hood with an old stone medallion. Or, you could use an 18th-century French marble fireplace to frame the hood over the stove. In general, just focus on improving the quality of the materials that you are using.
