There is one room of every home that is used by each member of the family. The kitchen is the heart of the home and is the place where so many memories are created. It’s usually the first stop for kids after the school day, to get a snack before tackling their homework. It’s the place where family meals are created, and lavish feasts are prepared during the holidays. It’s where the kiddos help ice the Christmas cookies. But if your kitchen is in need of an upgrade, it can become a place that no one likes to spend time in. Since kitchen and bath remodels are at the top of everyone’s list when it comes to buying a new home, it makes sense for you to spend your renovation money on an upgrade that will appeal to future homebuyers and which will be warm and inviting. Even if your home is cutting-edge modern, you can still make the kitchen cozy with modern grey kitchen cabinets.
How to Create a Modern Kitchen
The key to creating a modern kitchen is to have a minimalistic design using stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, and cabinets that trend toward the cooler side of the color spectrum. Grey cabinets are a great choice, since they allow you to veer off in any direction you want with the rest of the kitchen, adding spots of color with towels, plates, and countertop appliances. You want the room to have a high visual appeal while being totally functional. With a backdrop of grey cabinets, you can create whatever color palette you want. Choose a color that’s compatible with the rest of the house, especially if your home is open concept in design.
What Comes Next?
Since there are so many moving parts in any kitchen–plumbing, electrical, gas–and so many appliances in need of the proper hookups, you need to work with a designer who can help you properly address all these issues. Look for a company who offers expertise in kitchen design, who is committed to customer service, who will be transparent in their pricing and offer you a free estimate, and who is properly licensed and insured. They should offer a warranty on their work and be a member of the local Better Business Bureau (BBB) and have a rating on an independent website like Angie’s List or Houzz. These are a few things to keep in mind when choosing modern grey kitchen cabinets.
