If you are planning on remodeling your kitchen in time for Christmas, now is the time to get started on the project. Part of that planning will be your countertops, backplash and flooring. The popular trends have been using stone in the kitchen, such as granite countertops with a tile backsplash and granite floors.
First and foremost, you need to plan. Determine traffic patterns, kitchen layout for ease of use, how much drawer and cabinet space is needed and what type and color of stone countertops, backsplash and flooring you want. Consult with a European Marble and Granite Specialist who can help with your selection process.
Try to keep the location of your plumbing and electrical in the same places. It can become costly to start moving these utilities.
If you plan on replacing your appliances, you’ll want to do your homework on the various types that will work best for your kitchen layout. European Marble and Granite has good relationships with several professional appliance companies. Consult with them first.
Don’t overlook the power of lighting. Properly placed kitchen lighting can add great accents to your kitchen.
Don’t cut yourself short on quality. Going for the cheap, less-expensive materials will have your kitchen looking “cheap and less-expensive.” Putting quality into your kitchen will give you longevity, as well as a good looking kitchen.
Make good use of your space by adding taller cabinets and putting in a lot of drawers. You’ll love having the additional storage space.
Communicate early-on with your contractors. Give European Marble and Granite a call. They can introduce you to contractors that have good track records and have been reliable and easy to work with. This will save you a lot of time and headache in the future.
Have a Merry Christmas with your new kitchen!
