Different Choices When Updating Your Kitchen Are you trying to find a great way to update the appearance of your current kitchen? Are you sick of dealing with chipped tile, gaps within the grout or stains on the formica? Are the floors damaged and dated? Are the current appliances that wonderful color of mustard or avocado? If you want a fresh look, or hope to add to the value of your home, you may want to look into the latest in interior design. New countertops could be installed in just days and they instantly change the style of your home. New flooring, updates your drab eating area dramatically. The latest appliances add a fresh zing to a used up atmosphere. If you'd like to brighten your existing space, or you want to determine what would work best for a new build, there are many areas of your kitchen to explore. Countertops When considering new countertops, you'll be able to choose from many different options. Because of its beauty and durability, the most popular choice is granite. Its seamless surface is easy to keep clean, and you can place hot pans on the stone without scorching it. Granite won't be ruined by chemical spills or scratches either. You can have the granite shaped to your specifications and smooth edges could be ideal for the safety of your children: there are thin rounded or straight edges available, with thicker versions or fancy double or triple-tiered edges. A large number of granite patterns exist: you can find styles that look almost solid, or some have muted hues with smaller specs of color; there's also darker tones on the market and others will include vibrant swirls of contrasting colors. Granite can be ordered in slabs that cover long spans of the counter without seams. It can also be laid out in tiles. The nice thing about granite tiles, rather than ceramic, is that the line of grout is incredibly thin. You won't have difficulties with chips forming in the grout or dirt and food becoming lodged in between the tiles. You can save a bit of money by choosing the tile option, but you're still able to enjoy the quality of natural stone. Corian is a good option for a smooth surface for less. Ceramic tile squares is an inexpensive update that come in a couple of various sizes. Flooring Hardwood floors make an amazing statement. The warmth and elegance of natural wood can drastically change the look of your home. To fit your individual taste, hardwood is available in an array of shades and slat sizes. Go country chic with wide, pale planks of honey-colored wood. You may want a feel that's more cabin-like by deciding on slats of sturdy oak. For the elegant touch, uniformed pieces in a deep cherry tone would be a good choice. For a modern style, small boards stained almost black will make a striking declaration. You can always choose tile if hardwood isn't your ideal choice for flooring. Ceramic tile comes in all different sizes, from large 16x16 squares, down to just a couple inches across. Unique layouts can be created from basic geometric patterns, to intricate floral designs. You can even intermingle varying sizes of tile to create a dramatic effect. Tile is durable and lasts for years, and with some training, you can install it yourself. It typically increases the value of your house and makes you a happier person to live there, no matter what choices you make on the update of the kitchen, whether you end up picking new
