Kitchen Essentials

Every room has their needs and wants, and every room has only enough of just that; room! The struggle with needing and wanting things to fill up space in your home is that there just doesn’t seem to be enough square footage for everything you want. We complain and bicker about not enough space and try to find ways to fit our home appliances and toys (and by toys I am speaking of the in house gym you just purchased last month and that new 65” flat screen sitting in the garage just waiting to come hang on your living room wall). So while we’re doing mathematical measurements and brain storming ways to make room, lets take a moment to talk about the area of the house that is built precisely in a way to make sure the essentials fit in perfectly!

Let’s talk about the kitchen! Besides the laundry room, the kitchen is the only space in the house that’s built with its main appliances in mind. You have your dishwasher, fridge and oven. Not to mention the counters that separates those essential appliances. With these every day must have’s nestled perfectly in your kitchen space, you don’t really have to worry about anything else to move in there. Having those larger appliance’s already in place can make it easy to do kitchen renovations if you plan on keeping what you already have in place so that way, matching cabinets, handles, tile flooring and backslashes to go with the color and style of your appliance’s can save time and effort during renovations. The best way to have a kitchen looking spectacular is to have your appliances match the floor and backslash in your kitchen. I’m sure you have friends or family member’s who have a questionable look to their kitchen because it seems outdated or mismatched in one way or another. Some advice for those people? Look into a kitchen renovation project to change things up a little! Check out the local marketplace, it is no doubt home to some great flooring or tile renovation companies, but find one that stands out in particular, is great at their craft and efficient in their service. You want a job well done with fantastic looking tile and backslashes, Tile Winnipeg is the company for you! They are one of many reputable tile contractors Winnipeg has to offer.

Some say that the kitchen remodel is one of the toughest. I tend to think of it as a job half done for you already. That is, if you’re satisfied with the appliances you have in place already. If that’s the case, then your remodeling project can be worked around those appliances to suit their style and color scheme.

When remodeling or renovating your home, think of the essentials for each room. Form a list in your head of the must have appliances or furniture pieces each and every room is going to need (or what you want in each room) and navigate around those items! In the end, designing a space you planned to have big enough for everything to fit in will have worked so much easier as opposed to finishing the renovation and realizing there isn’t enough space. Not the mention your stress levels will a lot lower! And low stress makes everyone’s lives just that much easier to live!
