Kitchen Remodels - Best REI

Almost every home we flip gets a really nice kitchen remodel. If you are thinking about updating your kitchen, here’s some ideas.

Cabinetry

We frequently just replace the doors and drawer fronts on the existing cabinetry, rather than replacing the entire cabinets. It’s a lower cost, and the cabinets look brand new afterwards. Doing this allows the doors to be rehung with invisible hinges, that homeowners especially like now. And, you can stain or paint the entire cabinets a new color.

Countertops

We usually replace existing counter tops with granite counter tops. There’s lots of different materials, but we love the granite, and it comes in so many different colors and styles. We find the best prices are found at some of the independent companies, rather than the big box stores, so shop around. They’ll come measure and install with sinks, making it so easy!

Backsplash

This extra touch just makes a kitchen so beautiful. There are so many colors, styles, and materials to choose from, but the biggest thing to remember is creating a cohesive look with the rest of the kitchen. I love creating the backsplash looks. Another consideration is the grout color. Using a lighter color grout creates one look, while a darker color grout works better sometimes. If you’re not sure, ask your contractor!

Appliances

We almost always install all new appliances in every home we flip. Folks love brand new appliances, just like I do in my own home. Stainless steel appliances are really popular right now, but I see white coming back into popularity right now!

Island

If there’s enough a room, an island is always a great kitchen addition. Folks love to gather around the island, while food and drinks are created and served. And it provides additional counter space and cabinets, plus extra seating most of the time.

Don’t forget your walls, ceilings, and floors. Update the flooring where necessary, and a fresh coat of paint on the walls and ceilings will make your kitchen look perfect. I love updating kitchens. What was the last room in your home you remodeled?
