Kitchens Renovations today are drastically different from the past; they now usually requires extensive improvements to accommodate latest changed lifestyles. They involve numerous upgrades that are needed for expanded cooking areas within the house, as well as substantial electrical, plumbing, and HVAC work to support improved appliances and lighting requirements etc.
The most common upgrade is the open concept. Walls are now being removed and the kitchen is becoming part of the living area. Kitchen countertops are also now mostly solid surface materials that include materials such as engineered quartz, granite, wood, and stainless steel. They are easy to clean and allow for under mount sinks that are very much desired. The kitchen island (with seating and large work surface areas) acts as a social connection between kitchen and living activities. And appliances and finish materials are now far more practical and aesthetically appealing, as they are in full view of the living area. Improved lighting and electrical has also played an important part; potlights, additional outlets, and undercounter LED lighting are typical additions to even the most basic kitchen.
It is an excellent choice of design for any kitchen renovation. Originally, this kitchen was closed off from the rest of the house with a bearing wall dividing it from the dining room, and a block wall partially cutting off the view to the backyard. Both were removed making the first floor an entire open concept, bright, and spacious.
