Turn kitchen time into quality time
If you’re considering a kitchen renovation, keep in mind the value of upgrades that will enhance the efficiency, practicality and beauty of the space. Here are three key kitchen upgrades that can elevate the appeal of your kitchen:
Improved natural lighting: If your kitchen is small and dark, it can feel dingy and tired, no matter how new your appliances or shiny your granite countertops. Consider adding natural light sources such as skylights and roof windows. Not only can these natural light sources improve the feel of your kitchen, they can decrease the need for artificial lighting.
Upgraded fixtures: Replacing a basic, dated faucet and swapping out an older sink can have a significant impact on the overall look and utility of a kitchen — for a fraction of the cost of grander renovations. It’s possible to find new sinks that fit virtually any design taste. Stainless steel provides a sleek, modern look while delivering outstanding durability.
Energy-efficient appliances: Appliances are a kitchen element well worth a little extra investment, and improving the efficiency of these appliances can both elevate your enjoyment of the kitchen and save you some money. Replacing older appliances with newer, more energyefficient models can reduce your energy costs.
