Four Kitchen Design Projects to Finish Before the Holidays

With so many new options for kitchen design Long Island homeowners like you might be thinking of doing some home renovation before the upcoming holidays. Thanksgiving is right around the corner, though, so you might think there isn’t enough time to get it all done on top of your shopping and decorating. Not to worry – it isn’t too late to get your kitchen ready for all your guests and gatherings if you do it right! Here are four kitchen redesign projects that you can get underway now and have finished in time for holiday dinner parties and other upcoming get-togethers.

Fresh Cabinetry and Fixtures

After a quick stop at our kitchen showroom Long Island homeowners can easily choose the colors and materials that will create an entirely new look without remodeling the whole space. With a touch of cleaning and decorating your guests will think you orchestrated a full remodel when you only made a couple of quick upgrades!

New Backsplash, New Look

Adding a new backsplash to the walls behind the sink, stove and countertops is another easy way to update the look of your kitchen without a complicated remodeling project. A colorful tiled mosaic, for example, will dazzle your holiday guests without breaking the bank or tearing up the whole kitchen.

Add a Cozy Breakfast Nook

Wouldn’t you love to enjoy a holiday breakfast with your loved ones around a cozy nook in the corner of your kitchen or dining space? After a quick but carefully planned kitchen installation Long Island homeowners can breathe new life into this often neglected area of the home and get ready for a season of classic entertaining from morning until evening. Remember, the breakfast nook isn’t just for breakfast! It can also be a perfect spot for a bright and cheerful lunch, casual dinner for 2-4, a hosting area for drinks or serving area for plates and cutlery, or an additional table to accompany a larger service at the dining room table.
