Whether it’s your first time hosting for the holidays or you’re a seasoned pro, you might be feeling the stress that comes with having friends and family over at your home. Every homeowner wants their kitchen to look its best before people arrive. In this blog, we’ll explore three kitchen upgrades projects that can help get your home ready for the holidays.
A new kitchen won’t just look good, but will help you better utilize your space and kitchen ahead of a hectic season. That’s more time to spend with your friends and family.
Upgrade your countertops
During the holidays, your kitchen countertops will go through it all. Between raw turkey and sticky pie fillings, you’ll find yourself wiping down this surface a hundred times before the new year hits.
If your countertops are worn out, chipped, or even cracked, then it’s time for a refresh. New granite or quartz countertops are durable enough to last for decades, and it’s a breeze to wipe the surface clean.
Reconfigure your cabinet system
Of all the possible kitchen upgrades, new cabinets will make the biggest difference in your life. If you’re not very well organized when cooking several large meals, it’s easy to get stressed out.
Well-configured cabinets make the job easier. Cabinet design today goes beyond a box with shelves. Superior Stone & Cabinet has many options that can help you maximize your underused space and keep you organized during the hustle-and-bustle of holiday meal prep:
- Corner cabinet with “lazy susan”
- Cabinet with slide-out drawers
- Skinny cabinet for tight spaces
- Drawer dividers
- Pull-out trash can
Not only will new configurations get you organized in a snap, but you’ll be able to free up counter space by tucking everything in its place. This means you’ll have more room to work.
Redo your floors
As guests gather in your home, many will congregate in the kitchen to lend you a hand or simply watch you prepare the meal. With so much foot traffic coming in-and-out, you should have flooring that can stand up to the strain and look great. There’s nothing better than being complimented on your choice in flooring decor!
Dirty or stained flooring will make any kitchen appear drab and dated, which is surely not the impression you want your holiday guests to get when seeing your kitchen. In contrast, fresh flooring gives your kitchen a nice base to build up from. Consider something modern and long-lasting, such as a wood tile or wood laminate.
