Most homeowners looking to refresh their kitchen in the new year will be loaded with questions like, how much to remodel a kitchen, what are the newest trends in home kitchen design, and how can I cut corners and increase value at the same time? After all, a full kitchen remodel can sound vexing for your pockets.
A kitchen makeover can cost anywhere between $10,000 and $50,000 — less if the changes you intend to make are minimal and more because, well, the sky's the limit if you can afford it. This leaves a lot of room in between to personalize your budget as well as the changes you want to make. Whether it’s a fresh coat of paint, new cabinets, countertops, or floors, you can allow yourself to be inspired by the latest trends and update your kitchen without breaking the bank.
2020 Kitchen Remodel Trends
2021 has been the year where our lifestyles dictate interior design trends and not the other way around. Extended hours at home have changed the way we regard and interact with our home and this has affected design trends as well.
The space our kitchens take in our lives (or in our homes) is not small, which is why it’s not surprising that one of the most popular kitchen remodel ideas homeowners have been considering in 2021 is to enlarge. This can be done by breaking down a wall that separates the kitchen from a fairly flexible and communal space like a dining room, living room, or hallway. A more cost-effective approach is to create the impression of more space by bringing in more light and choosing surfaces to reflect that light.
