The trend toward open kitchens shows no sign of reversing. Modern homeowners continue to tear down the walls. They like the ability to socialize while preparing meals. They like having more light to work with and improved traffic flow in the main living area. The right connection between your living room, kitchen and dining areas will allow your family to communicate and engage with each other more.
However, a kitchen update needn’t be a colossal undertaking. Replacing the backsplash or concealing the storage works wonders. Kitchen cabinet refacing goes a long way. Open shelving brightens the space.
You’re hardly limited to black, white or stainless appliances these days, and in cabinet refacing, the possibilities are virtually endless. You needn’t be afraid to experiment with eye-catching colors.
