Renovating a kitchen in a house is very different from renovating a kitchen in a condo. Renovating a condo kitchen is all about making smarter choices.
If you own a condo and you’re looking forward to selling it, you might as well plan to sell it at a handsome price. A condo in Toronto is valuable and you can make it more worthwhile by renovating its kitchen.
Consider renovating your condo kitchen for the following five reasons:
- If the stove and oven in the kitchen look like fully depreciated assets.
- The cabinets do not compare to the modern trends.
- The kitchen sink is simply too old-fashioned to bear.
- To increase the counter space so that at least two people can work in the kitchen at the same time.
- To add a mini bar or bar fridge for drinks.
This article will give you 4 ways in which you can give your condo kitchen a striking and downtown city style look. So let’s begin!
1- Choosing the Color for the Cabinets
The first thing to start with is choosing the color of the cabinets. Instead of going with white or typical wood finish, go for a medium gray finish that goes well with the white windows and walls of the kitchen. It’s a contrast that appeals to all eyes for sure. And try to get the cabinets custom made because it’ll be difficult to find off-the-shelf cabinets that would fit your kitchen size.
2- Select the Right Hardware
Next comes selecting the hardware that goes with the kitchen and is trendy. Get stainless steel lip pull handles. They’re simple and you hardly see them, which is the best thing about them. Another feature you can add is a pullout on the left side of the cooking range for all the spices and condiments.
3- Planning the Counter Space
If you want to redesign your kitchen in a way that it has more counter space, then the one way of doing that is to choose slightly smaller kitchen appliances. You can opt for a 24-inch fridge, cooktop, and oven in order to save some space in the kitchen. Installing two piece cooktop and oven is also a smart choice.
4- Lighting and Flooring
If you think the flooring is fine and doesn’t need a renovation or if you’re on a budget, then you can simply add carpet tiles. You can choose any pattern and combine them or use just one pattern. As for the lighting, just keep it simple by adding a pair of decorative pendants over the island.
