We’ve been remodeling kitchens in Southern Florida for more than a decade. During that span, we’ve seen a little bit of everything. In South Florida, you get one of the most humid climates in the world. This weather can take a toll on your home. Not to mention all the other elements we have to worry about in Florida. None the less, if you found this article, you’re likely thinking about a new kitchen model. If you’re looking to remodel your Florida kitchen, you’re always welcome to give us a call.
Upgrading a kitchen is full of possibilities, and even a few simple budget ideas can refresh, modernize your kitchen design.

From DIY ideas to hiring a pro, our design advice and how-to ideas tell you everything you need to know about planning your kitchen remodel.
Now, let’s talk about some great kitchen remodeling ideas for your own remodel. I want you to take out a piece of paper, grab a pen and start thinking about what you like. Write down the colors and color combinations that you like. Do you life natural tones or dark tones? Do you like a lot of light or prefer shades? Do you like open space in your kitchen or something.
Kitchen Ideas And Inspiration
Research is going to be your first task. Why? Simple, this is how we can get some awsome ideas for the kitchen of your dreams. I love Pinterest, so many great ideas for remodeling the kitchen. Some are inexpensive, while others may be a tad more. None the less, you get the ball rolling, let the inspiration run. Write down your favorite colors, design patterns you adore, the types of appliances you may like.
At this point, it doesn’t matter what you write down. Don’t worry about cost, just write down what you like. Take the time to visit our kitchen remodeling gallery. We have hundreds of pictures displaying some of the kitchens we’ve remodeled in the last few years. Take the time to view them, jot down some ideas, what you like, what you don’t like. You’ll be surprised how the ideas start to roll.
Kitchen cabinets are one of the most expensive elements in kitchen remodeling and rightfully so. Kitchen cabinets are the heart of kitchen. Simply replacing your kitchen cabinets can make a huge difference in the look of your kitchen. And there’s a lot that can be done with your kitchen cabinets. Just a coat of new stain can make a world of difference and that will only run you a few dollars, and a little bit of your time.
Painting The Kitchen
Nothing can help your kitchen remodel stand out more than a fresh coat of paint. A gallon of paint will only run you around $20, you’;ll likely need 2 gallons depending on the size of your kitchen. The hardest part is choosing the color that you want to go with. From white to earthy tones and pastels, the kitchen can reflect a wide array of colors. You may also want a theme in your kitchen, perhaps apples or strawberries.
This is where you can get creative with your kitchen remodeling for a price likely cheaper than what you first thought. I like a good mixture of lighting myself. Having the ability to dim is always important, you’ll likely want that flexibility. As for the kitchen lights itself, the sky is the limit. You can use stainless steel or aluminum lighting for a more modern touch or you can go earthy tones for a natural look. Consider swivels for your kitchen lights as you can move them in any direction that you wish.
Tile or solid wood, what kitchen floors do you prefer? Anything but carpet, right? You may want to go vinyl on your kitchen flooring. Again, you have a lot of options. Perhaps your kitchen has a hidden gem of 100 year old solid wood kitchen floors, it happens. We pulled up some carpet in an old victorian house and found wood flooring.
If you’re looking to add space with your kitchen remodeling, you may want to consider adding storage in your kitchen walls. There’s a number of great ways to accomplish this. We recently remodeled a kitchen in Boynton Beach and rather than having more kitchen cabinets for storage, we were able to add some good looking shelves in the kitchen walls.
