 Get ready for a wild ride…….making more choices designing your kitchen project.

kitchen remodeling orlando fl


When we left off, we were sitting in the kitchen with our cup of coffee.   We were taking a look at the present space and imagining what changes we would like to make. The key to a stress free whole home remodeling, or any project, is to make as many decisions and selections as you can early into the process. 

 I suggested you keep a folder (on a website, your computer, or pages torn from magazines).  The websites Pinterest and Houzz have great tools that let you keep ideas in an organized format.   Today take a long look at each picture you saved.  Circle or notate what it is about the picture that you absolutely love.  It could be the floor in one picture or just a pendant light.  I find that I may not like the whole room but really love one feature in the room.

 As you look at each picture, a style preference may begin to reveal itself.  The style of the kitchen (in this scenario) may coincide with the age or era of the home.  In remodeling, an outdated kitchen can be transformed yet compliment the prevalent features on the home and home furnishings. 

Preferences and style are most noticeable in the cabinetry, the light fixtures, and in some cases the flooring materials.  Because these items have the largest impact on a kitchen remodel, these are the next choices that have to be pinned down.  So let’s consider the flooring next.  The cabinetry will complement the flooring choice so keep that thought while you look at the flooring choices. Easy enough? 

Kitchens are the heart of the home.  Questions have to be answered. The kitchen floor must tolerate tremendous foot traffic, spills, dropped silverware and dishes.  The floor must also be easy to maintain, easy on your feet and legs, not prone to stains and water resistant. Is the space open to other rooms in the house and what flooring is there or is it being replaced?   You may not want to change the floor you have, in that case you must work with what you have.

The options are hardwood, ceramic tile, natural stone, cork laminate, vinyl, linoleum, slate, and concrete. There are pros and cons to each floor covering and for each option there are considerations as to budget and the condition of your subfloor and personal preference.

I have created a Flooring Choices board on our Pinterest page with great links to various flooring gurus.  Just go to http://pinterest.com/wpdb/flooring-choices/  for some great information.    Get ready for some hard choices……..cabinetry is next.
