One of the easiest ways to gather a return on your home investment is to update the kitchen. Not only will you reap the benefits from a remodeled space throughout the time that you inhabit a residence but should you ever decide to sell, the increase in value will definitely be a plus. One of the most used rooms in any home, the kitchen serves as a gathering point for all family and friends who come together to enjoy a meal and the fellowship that accompanies both preparing and partaking in a meal.
The details of a kitchen remodel
can make all the difference in exactly what the end result will be of an entire project upgrade. From color selections to lightning and hardware, the changes from old patterns or worn out cabinets to new, updated, fixtures and materials throughout the space can really make all of the difference. However, depending on the size and layout of your current floorplan, the modern trend of installing a kitchen island, breakfast bar, or peninsula becomes an issue of personal preference with a majority of different options to consider before installing your decision.
The centerpiece of a kitchen, an island can offer a variety of different benefits to any homeowner. Not only is the use of an island able to increase the available countertop space but storage underneath on both sides of the space allows individuals multiple places to store their kitchen gadgets and all other belongings.
Very similar to the kitchen island, a breakfast bar holds the same storage and functional countertop space on one side, but the other is extended beyond the base to create an area where bar stools or high top chairs can be slid underneath or used to eat. Also, both an island and breakfast bar allow for one of the top trends in interior design today - a contrasting kitchen
island. Using a different color here adds a bit of pop and intrigue to the room.
Depending on your design layout, the peninsula may be a better option to add some additional space or help to define your kitchen area. Unlike the kitchen island or breakfast bar, the peninsula is not a stand alone structure but remains connected to another portion of the main countertop. The most prominent use of a peninsula is to create a border which defines the kitchen in open floor plan concepts. Able to also be used as an area for eating, depending on the design layout, individuals can reap some of the same type benefits from its use. Ultimately, it’s personal preference and largely dependent on the amount of space you have for a remodel, but adding any of these to your kitchen will add value both in use and the pocketbook.
