Kitchen and Bathroom Remodeling

Kitchen and Bathroom Remodeling

Remodeling a home is a great time to think about all the new things you can purchase and make your place prettier, but also more functional than before. Since it can be costly to remodel a complete home, you might want to approach it partially and do one room at a time.

Statistics say that around 80% of homes in the US are at least 20 years old, so chances are you’ll have to do a remodeling of your home to maintain proper functions and update the style.

When it comes to interiors, you should consider both the functionality and aesthetic of the room you’ll be working on. As the kitchen and the bathroom are the two most important rooms in the house, you could start there.

The Functionality of the Kitchen

The primary function of the kitchen is to enable you to cook food. But to do so efficiently, you’ll need to put in some thoughts before starting a kitchen remodeling project. Think about where you’ll want your stove, fridge, workplace, and waste bin to be. Setting up a properly functioning kitchen will minimize the time and effort it takes to cook, but also prevent accidents. This is how you can improve the functionality of your kitchen:

– Add a lot of space and storage units
– Design the corners with pull-out shelves on tracks
– Set up a waste bin in a pull-out drawer
– Set up good lighting
– Create a workspace
– Use the walls for extra space

Steps of Kitchen Remodeling
Once you have planned out the functionality and the design of your kitchen, it’s time for action. The first thing you’ll need to do is remove the cabinet doors so that you could remove the cabinets. Check for the plumbing and valves, and replace what’s old. Next, you’ll want to replace the wiring and install lighting.

Hang the drywall, tape the seams, and mud it. Once the mud is dry, sand and mud again. Let it dry and sand one more time. Apply the finishing coat and paint the walls and the ceiling. Install flooring, cabinets, countertops, and hardware. Add the details that will fit the design of your new kitchen. Don’t forget to treat yourself with a nice homemade meal after your kitchen remodeling project is complete!

The Functionality of the Bathroom

The bathroom is, next to the kitchen, another essential room in the home. It’s also often the smallest one. That’s why it can be tricky to create a fully functional bathroom, mainly because it’s a multi-purpose space. Here’s what every bathroom needs to have so that it’s fully functional:

– A place for cleaning supplies
– Enough storage
– Good lighting
– Good ventilation
– Underfloor heating
– Good water pressure
– High-quality faucets
Aesthetic of the Bathroom
Just like for the kitchen, designing a beautiful bathroom will help you feel even better when you spend time inside. Depending on the size of it, sometimes you won’t have much space to work with, but it’s totally possible to design a bathroom in a way that allows you to jump-start your day energized and end it peacefully. This is what every carefully designed bathroom has:

– A mirror that fits the design
– Beautiful towels
– Accents – gold or metallic
– Wall-mounted toilets
– Diagonal tiles
– Plants
– Fancy containers
