For me, the desire to always be changing and improving my home is strong. While I love my house, as a home owner I have an endless list of things that I’d like to change, improve and redesign. It’s true that I was able to find a home that was pretty much as close to my dream house as possible without building it from scratch but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t always items on my list that could be improved upon. I’ve made all the easy changes like switching out towels and mirrors in the bathrooms and rearranging furniture to change the look of the space. But one area that’s not quite as quick of a fix but is generally high on any homeowner’s list is completing a kitchen makeover.
We all know that the kitchen is the heart of any home….it’s where meals happen and memories are made. It’s where families cook together and special moments are celebrated. For us, it’s the room of the home that we spend most of our waking hours in. The kids love to help me cook, the hubs usually shares his stories across the kitchen counters and it’s just the place where I want to be the most.

Decide on a Look that Works for You
Everyone’s idea of a dream kitchen is different. For me, I’m all about rustic elegance. However, I know my darker look is not a fit for everyone. Many people light bright, light kitchens while others like to make a statement with tile and accent pieces. While personal style is important to consider, it’s also nice to see what’s on trend and how it can help increase the value of your home! Start by checking out these 7 Hot Kitchen Design Trends for 2017! From easy fixes like lighting to completely changing your cabinets, it’s a list of ideas that are sure to have your kitchen remodel on point with the current trends!
Once you’ve considered these trends however, be sure to stay true to what YOU really love! You may need to blend your own style with the trends that are hot right now! Or you and your spouse may need to find middle ground to ensure you’re both happy with your kitchen remodel. Try these easy tips for blending kitchen styles to come up with a look that makes your entire family (and your budget) happy! Once you’ve decided on a general look and style that will work well for your new kitchen, it’s time to move on to the layout.
Consider Changing up Your Layout
While it’s normal to simply think of giving your current kitchen layout a little facelift, if you’re really going to tackle a kitchen remodel with help from Sears Home Services, why not take a look at your layout and make sure you’ve got the look that is right for you. It’s important to remember that you will need to work within the current structural limitations of your home but some easy changes like cabinet placement and built in appliances can make a HUGE difference! Not sure what I”m talking about? Check out the infographic below and you might just be shocked at how much of a difference little layout changes that are totally doable with any level of remodel can make!
Simple tips like placing your pantry next to the fridge or using built-in pull-out cabinets for garbage bins can make a huge difference and I’ll admit, I wouldn’t necessarily have thought about them! Check out more inspiration with these 9 Kitchen Layout Ideas and be sure to talk to your Sears Home Services consultant about ideas for making the most of your space!
Make Cabinets and Hardware a Priority
Once you’ve decided on a layout for your brand new kitchen, it’s time to start bringing your vision to life. One of the most important steps is choosing the right cabinets and hardware for your space. I know it seems like all cabinets are the same but it’s amazing the difference that cabinet style can make in the look of your overall room! With eight different styles at Sears that deliver very different feels, how can you make sure you get the right cabinet for the look you’re going for? Start with this easy infographic that explains not only the different cabinet types but the overall look that they fit best with.
I had no idea that such small differences could make such an impact on the final look of a kitchen! Once you’ve narrowed down your cabinet choices, finish the look with these kitchen hardware trends and you’ll be well on your way to the kitchen you’ve dreamed of!
Finish Your Look with Amazing Countertops
With your cabinets and hardware chosen, you’re rounding third base and heading home with a kitchen design that’s just right for you but the final consideration is your countertops. I’ll be honest, while they are a little pricier I tend to lean towards quartz and granite countertops. However, there are upsides and downsides to these choices. While they are a little pricier initially, for me they give the look I want and the function I need! However, that may not be the case for everyone. It’s important to take durability and function into account when choosing countertops as well as their appearance! Before you go with your first choice, do a quick comparison of quartz, laminate, acrylic and granite countertops here and see which one meets your most important needs!
Once you’ve chosen the perfect countertops, you’ll need to make a few more choices like what flooring to use to finish your kitchen and then you’ll be ready to let Sears Home Services begin the transformation of your kitchen!
