Kitchen Remodeling Ideas in Chicago – Part II

Adding or updating a backsplash can instantly change the look of a kitchen. Backsplashes can be done with many different materials including copper, stainless steel, mosaic tiles or stone. Mosaic tiles come in just about any color, size and shape to match your kitchen and décor. If you want to go a little further than the backsplash, adding granite or marble countertops will update your kitchen as well as add more value to the home. Existing countertops can also be updated by resurfacing them and removing and dents or scratches.

Refinishing existing cabinets is another way to change the look of your kitchen. You can have dark or drab cabinets refinished with a different color or stain. If you determine that your existing cabinets are in good shape then consider having them resurfaced instead. If you decide to go this route there are thousands of options you can choose from including different stains, paints, textures and veneers. At the very least this will eliminate any scratches from the surface of your cabinets.

If you are looking to go even further and change structures in the home you can consider knocking out a wall or adding a pantry storage area. Many times adjacent closets can be changed so that they are included in the design of the kitchen. Open or unused space can be perfect for adding a small pantry area to store extra food and kitchen items. Knocking out or adding walls can also drastically change the look and feel of your kitchen. If your dining area is currently separated from the kitchen by a wall it may be worth removing the wall and making your kitchen and dining area one large open space. Even beyond these suggestions the possibilities are endless and most times the kitchen of your dreams can be achieved in no time.
