The Holiday Season Approaches: Is it Time for a Kitchen Remodel?

HolidayKitchensWith the holidays on the horizon, we start to make plans for opening our homes to friends and family to celebrate the season together. Looking around your kitchen, how ready do you feel? If you have been delaying a kitchen remodel until the time is “just right”, the holidays provide the perfect impetus for taking action. Imagine how much easier and more festive your holiday season could be with a beautiful new kitchen designed to be more efficient, energy-conscious and welcoming.

Here are some ideas for how the holidays can inspire your kitchen remodel:

Storage and Organization: An organized kitchen makes all the difference when it comes to preparing meals for the larger groups we tend to host during the holiday season. The wealth of new storage provided by ample cabinetry, innovative drawer systems, and slide out or stand alone pantries cuts down on the time it takes to find the right tool while you’re cooking and the right serving ware and dinnerware when you’re ready to set the holiday table.

State-of-the-Art Appliances: Today’s appliances offer a combination of sleek built-in design and innovative energy-efficiency. Both trends mean you can have that extra large refrigerator or stove you’ve been dreaming about without detracting from your overall room design or adding significantly to your energy bill. Beyond the fridge, stove and dishwasher, consider appliances that make entertaining a breeze and everyday life a little more luxurious, such as a built-in espresso machine or wine cooler.

A Gathering Place: Perhaps most important for a kitchen remodel design, especially during the holidays, is that the room provides a warm and welcoming atmosphere that encourages people to gather together. Space planning is essential when it comes to this aspect of designing your new kitchen. A professional designer can help you determine how best to reconfigure the space you have now for optimal efficiency and appeal.

If you’re inspired to open your home to guests this season and share the joy of your stunning new kitchen design, now is the time to get started!
