For most households, the kitchen area is the main hub of the household. Homeowners carry out a multitude of tasks in the area including meal preparation and cleanup tasks. Many kitchens also have a breakfast bar where family members gather after school or work for conversation and a light snack. Some kitchens also have a small area that acts as a mini-office or homework station. In short, the kitchen is typically a very busy place, requiring durable flooring that easily holds up under frequent stress. In this post, we will outline several points homeowners will want to consider as they select flooring for the kitchen, as well as provide some flooring options that are beautiful, durable, and easy to clean as well.
When it’s time to remodel your kitchen, you don’t want to simply “settle” for whatever you can get. Especially when it comes to your cabinets. Not only are cabinets functional and necessary, but they are as much a part of your decor as your flooring, lighting fixtures, and countertops. Going all out may not make the functional part any more functional, but they can certainly bring great joy, comfort, and pleasure for years to come.
When you want to update your kitchen, getting new countertops is an excellent way to start. However, if you don’t want to go through such an extensive renovation, you can also elevate the appearance of your kitchen by merely getting a new island countertop. Many types of materials are available that will give your island a beautiful, contemporary look.
Cabinets and Countertops
We spend a lot of time in the bathroom, what with morning preparation for the day, evening beauty routines, and relaxing in a hot bath after a long day. Although we may not consider it, the bathroom is also one of the primary rooms our guests are likely to see when they visit. Surprisingly, in spite of regular use, the bathroom is often overlooked when people consider options for home improvement. It’s true, bathroom redesign can be a daunting task. There is a large bathtub or enclosed shower, the sink and it’s associated plumbing, and of course, the toilet. But revamping your bathroom doesn’t have to mean a full-scale overhaul. Simple changes, such as a new cabinets and countertops, can bring renewed functionality and value to your bathroom space without major alterations to the plumbing components.
We recently had a complete remodel of our new home and selected Flooring Innovations for all the tile flooring, kitchen and bath tile, and carpet. From the selections at the Palm Springs showroom to our sales person, Steve, to the installation crew, it was professional and timely and we couldn’t be happier! The end result is spectacular.
