Does your kitchen need a little TLC to look its best? Known as the “heart of the home”, kitchen remodels are one of the most popular renovations on the market. As a surefire way to add value to your property, remodels are a fantastic option both for owners looking to make the most of their space in the present, as well as plan for the future. If you’re ready to create the perfect space but need a little help figuring out where to start, Carmax Consulting is here to help. Below are few areas to consider that will take your kitchen old and drab to cutting edge.

First Things First

Before jumping head first into a project it’s important to consider your the end goal of your changes, as well as your budget and timeline. While both minor and major renovations will help add value to your property, having a clear picture in mind makes deciding where to start easier. Once you know how you’d like to proceed as well as your overall budget, working with an experienced contractor will make the rest a breeze!

Options to consider include:

Overhauling Old/Damaged Cabinetry

Older cabinetry can begin to show its age and bring down the aesthetic of your kitchen. Replacing damaged shelves with custom pieces can go a long way towards revitalizing your space and breathe new life into your home. If the internal parts of your kitchen are still in good shape but you want to change the colour or style, you can simply replace the door and drawer fronts with minimal damage or down time.

Swapping Out Older Appliances

Still using the same oven that’s been in your home since the dawn of time? Has it been ages since you swapped out the fridge or gave your kitchen a refresh? Updating to modern appliances will not only give your space a face lift but could also save you a considerable amount in energy bills each year.


Still stuck with vinyl from the 70s? Installing new floors is an instant way to transform the room while also increasing the value of your property in the long term.

Open Things Up

One of the most common reasons homeowners choose to remodel their kitchen is the fact that older houses tend to have a small, cramped layout. This can be problematic when it comes to food preparation, family time, and entertaining. An open concept remodel allows you to have plenty of space for everyone to enjoy, and can often seamlessly blend multiple rooms with a stylish flair.
