Kitchen Remodeling Ideas for the New Year

A prep sink in a kitchen island and an apron-front or farmhouse sink for a kitchen remodel in Los Angeles.Everyone—and we think almost everyone—is looking forward to doing something different and fresh for the new year, since the previous year was kind of, well, stuck in a rut. If you’re looking for a way to reinvigorate your home during 2021, arranging for kitchen remodeling in Los Angeles, CA is one of the best ways. Perhaps this idea has been in the back of your mind for a stretch, but now that your brain is fully engaged in getting a new start, it’s a task you want to tackle this year.

We’re here for the job: we offer full kitchen remodeling services, starting from the early design phase and continuing through putting in the last of the lights and hooking up the plumbing. Let’s start with the design: below we’ve put together a few ideas to consider for your new kitchen. This is just the beginning—we have many more concepts to help you realize your dream new kitchen.

The Island

If you have the space available, or you’re planning on enlarging the kitchen space, the island kitchen is one of the most popular remodeling concepts. You can remove the old peninsula you once had that blocked off easy movement and add additional workspace while allowing for better workflow in the “work triangle.” Putting in an island allows for more chances to show off design creativity and put in additional luxury appliances.

Open Shelving

This is a daring approach to storage for a kitchen, and it’s not the right one for everyone since it requires taking a new look at how items are stored now that they’ll always be visible. However, for some homeowners, open shelving brings in the bright look they want for a kitchen space that feels cramped. And if you love your cookware, you’ll want it to be on display—not only functional, but as decorative as well.

The Creative Backsplash

The backsplash behind the sink and range may seem like a small part of the overall kitchen design, but it’s one of the most eye-catching. A small investment here goes a long way toward beautifying the kitchen and creating an overall design aesthetic. 

Create a Bar and Open the Kitchen

Do you have an older kitchen that is walled off from the rest of the house and doesn’t have a bar with seating? Here is your big chance: take down one of the walls to open the kitchen to the rest of the house and put seating at it. This creates a greater sense of space, and it also makes the kitchen into a new social focal point, ideal for small and large gatherings, from intimate family interactions to expansive parties.

Higher Ceiling, Better Lighting

Better lighting is a crucial part of any kitchen remodel, but it’s easy to forget this among the other tasks that can get your attention in a remodel. If you want to make a major change to the lighting, consider raising the ceiling and putting in more elaborate and lighting fixtures that are both attractive and task-focused. You can create a range of different moods for kitchen lighting this way.
