There are all kinds of home improvement projects that can be done, and upgrading your kitchen is up there among the most popular.  If this is a project you plan on tackling then Top Rank has a few tips and ideas for you to consider.  Taking the proper time to research and plan means you’ll end up with the kitchen of your dreams.

Discuss the Cabinets  –  Cabinets are the most important part of a kitchen upgrade project.  Cabinets are used on a daily basis, and they really do set the tone of the kitchen.  With so many options available when it comes to style, color/stain, and hardware, this part can actually feel a bit intimidating.  A great way to narrow down your options is to first figure out what sort of style you’re going for – country, contemporary, modern, vintage, natural/earthy, or something else.  The most common style of cabinets is shaker, inset, flat, distressed, and custom.  Top Rank can discuss notable features of each design with you.

Choose Your Countertop  –  Another area that plays a huge role in the overall look and feel of your kitchen is your countertop.  Typically people go for granite when they want to upgrade their kitchen, but the fact is that there are all kinds of beautiful, luxurious, and durable materials to choose from.  Outside of granite other options include soapstone, quartz, plastic laminate, tile, concrete, cement, recycled glass, stainless steel, and wood/butcher block.

Considering an Island?  – If the space permits, you may want to consider adding an island to your kitchen.  An island provides extra workspace, as well as extra storage space if you build cupboards under it.  If you’re a baker, you can choose a specific countertop that will work with rolling out your various creations.

Flooring is a Focal Point.  – Lastly, it’s very important to think about the flooring you want to use in your kitchen.  Flooring can actually end up tying the whole house together, and also act as a focal point in your kitchen.  It can literally bring the whole home improvement together.
