The kitchen is more than a place to prepare meals; it’s where homework is done, holidays are shared, and memories are made. When it’s time to breathe new life into the heart of your home, choose trusted kitchen contractors that have the skills to make your vision for the space a reality. 

Make your kitchen replacement a time update not only the style, but the functionality and overall layout of your space. As you discuss your Albuquerque kitchen remodel with a design professional, here are a few ideas to toss around. 

Add an Island

An island adds lots of workspace, additional seating areas, and plenty of storage. Even if your kitchen isn’t spacious enough for a large island, there may room for a smaller option that will still provide many of the same features. A kitchen designer will be able to show you all the possibilities. 

Open it Up

Are you tired of being closed off from the rest of your living space when working in the kitchen? Consider taking down a wall to open up your kitchen. You could remove the wall completely or create a half wall that still provides a separation between the kitchen and other rooms while also allowing you to be part of the action. 

Color Pops

Even if you have a clean, minimal design style, a pop of color adds visual interest to your kitchen. This can be accomplished with a jazzy backsplash, a few random colored tiles or even something as simple as an accent wall. 

Go All the Way Up

Rather than leaving space between your cabinets and ceiling, choose cabinets that go all the way up. This not only eliminates the need for climbing on a ladder to dust up there, but it provides lots of extra storage as well. Even if you find it difficult to reach those high shelves, you can use it to store rarely used items such as holiday items. 

Stash the Goods

Many kitchens have little nooks that are currently useless, but that could be—with the help of a talented designer—transformed into places to stash spices, brooms, and other items. From skinny pull-out storage to custom shelves, you may be surprised by all the options!
