A remodeled kitchen in a modern farmhouse.

What You Need to Remodel the Kitchen

If you feel like your kitchen is the design equivalent of an overdone casserole, it’s time for a change. Your cooking and meal prep space should be more than utilitarian or good enough—It should make you feel happy, proud, and eager to spend time in it. That may mean a few minor changes, like swapping out cabinets, or a floor-to-ceiling kitchen remodel complete with new countertops. So where should you start to create a kitchen that reflects your tastes, both in form and function? Keep reading for some remodel tips to help you get the kitchen of your dreams:

Kitchen with blue countertopsFlavor to Your Taste: Cabinets

Cabinets are one of the first things you see when you enter your kitchen: if they’re outdated, creaky, or small, the room will feel the same way. Switch it up with a new glaze or finish or redo your cabinets entirely to add convenient storage space. Shaker-style doors, when paired with the right hardware, can make an old kitchen feel fresh and new immediately. When added to other kitchen improvements, cabinets set the tone for your new kitchen style. They may even inspire you to try a bold new recipe or two, now that plates and ingredients are at your fingertips.

Spice it Up: Countertops

The second most noticeable feature of your kitchen is the workspace: your countertops. Scuffed and scratched-up countertops will make your kitchen feel more like a worn-out throwback than a trend-setting space. Quartz, stone, and other durable modern materials look impressive and perform admirably. The Window Depot can make customized countertop material recommendationsbased on your kitchen layout. Whether you’re picturing slicing French bread for dinner on a quartz countertop or dicing onions for a breakfast omelet on butcher block, a durable, sturdy countertop is an excellent kitchen helper.

Add a Little Warmth: Windows and Skylights

Natural lighting energizes a room—an especially important task when you’re spending hours perfecting a favorite soup or a tray of baked goods. A new replacement window and a new skylight from the Window Depot will help you make the most of your kitchen space. Imagine reading cookbooks in the afternoon sunlight as you prep for lunch or dinner or enjoying an impromptu cup of coffee with a friend by the counter. It’s a culinary dream when you make the most out of your home’s natural lighting capabilities. And, well, if that pie crust is a little more well-done than you’d like, an easy-to-open window will help air out the oven in moments.
