Brighten up your kitchen remodel in Highland Village, Frisco, Flower MoundTips to Brighten Up Your Kitchen

If your kitchen feels dark or outdated, here are three design tips to use in your kitchen remodel:

1. Paint the entire kitchen white

Painting the walls, ceiling and cabinets white or other bright colors will significantly brighten your new kitchen remodel. In addition, white creates a clean fresh look and is a popular design choice for homeowners in the Frisco, Highland Village and North DFW area. You can also add a splash of color with accents to provide contrast to the white paint.

There are dozens of Sherwin Williams white colors to choose from. If you are easily overwhelmed by the number of choices, you can instead select White Dove by Benjamin Moore if your kitchen has lots of light or Simply White by Benjamin Moore for a darker kitchen.

2. Upgrade Your kitchen lighting

When you consult with our designers, we’ll walk you through the lighting choices we recommend, but only after we learn more about what you want to achieve with your kitchen remodel.

Windows are, of course, a great source of natural light. If you use curtains, make sure to use sheer curtains instead of dark ones. The more natural light you can use in your kitchen, the more open it will feel.

One easy choice is to augment your featured lighting with recessed lighting or track lights. This allows you to use feature fixtures more for the look they have rather than the amount of light they give off.

Installing recessed lighting in your kitchen will change the entire feel of the space. They’re tucked into the ceiling, so they are not in the line of sight. Another lighting option is to backlight upper cabinets. This bounces light off the ceiling, giving you diffracted, diffused light, which is much more pleasing to the eye. Lights should be installed where they are most needed, like above the sink and food prep areas. Under-cabinet lighting also creates a warm glow throughout the kitchen.

This is one area where you simply must get a true professional’s input when you set up your new kitchen design.

Open concept kitchen remodeling is very popular, because it transforms a space from closed and outdated to current, modern and spacious.

However, there are many considerations, and disaster stories are very common. Weight-bearing walls, proper electric and plumbing supply to newly designed areas (which often involves cutting into the slab), and other important considerations affect the long-term value of your home, and even your family’s safety.

There are some great kitchen remodeling contractors out there, and of course, we’d love to earn your business.
