5 Ways to Improve Your Kitchen Design , New Britain, Connecticut

The kitchen is the focal point of most homes. It is where meals are prepared, homework is completed, and families congregate to share in each other’s lives. A room that gets so much use should be comfortable, inviting, and always look its best. If yours feels drab, consider updating your kitchen design. Leo’s Kitchen & Stair Corp. in New Britain, CT, lists several ideas for renovating and remodeling your kitchen.

Install New Lighting

The way a room is lit can make a world of difference. A room too bright can feel harsh and unwelcoming, while one too dark may seem drab. A kitchen benefits most from soft, overhead light. Consider updating the lighting fixtures in your kitchen by adding overhead lamps, in-ceiling lights, or track lighting.

Add Backsplash

If you want to add some color and texture to your kitchen, try out backsplash. It can be made of tile, exposed brick, or a geometric print, creating interest in an otherwise minimalist kitchen. You can match your decor to the backsplash or let it stand alone.

Try Out an Accent Wall

An accent wall allows you to introduce a bold color to your kitchen without committing to it all the way. You can add a lively red or refreshing yellow while leaving all other elements of your kitchen design the same. Your guests will be intrigued and delighted by the difference.

Update Your Countertops

kitchen designCountertops get the most use out of any surface in your home, so it is important to choose a material resistant to scratches, water, and stains. A granite countertop looks great and meets all of the criteria. You can order a custom countertop or purchase a ready-made option.

Invest in New Tiles

Floor tiles can wear down or stain over the years. Brighten up your space and modernize your home with chic, new tiles. Try a black and white checkered pattern for a modern look or marble for a timeless, sophisticated design.
