Remodeling Your Kitchen? 3 Unique Additions To Consider

Posted on: 14 November 2019

Your kitchen is most likely an important part of your daily life, so ensuring it is both appealing and functional is imperative. Remodeling your kitchen can be a great way to improve the look and overall function of the space, of course, but it can also be a great way to incorporate some unique details and elements that make your kitchen a fun and enjoyable space. Here are a few additions to consider when remodeling your kitchen.

Chalkboard Wall

Whether you have children or not, a chalkboard wall can be a great addition to your kitchen. Chalkboard paint applied to a wall by your breakfast nook or island would be a unique and whimsical addition that would also serve a function for you and your family.

If you do have children, allow them to draw and write on the chalkboard wall to pass time. The kids can also practice their writing skills and math problems while you prepare meals. For busy families, the chalkboard wall can be used to document scheduled events on the calendar.

Even if you do not have children or a busy lifestyle, the chalkboard wall can be used as your own personal calendar, to-do list, or background for artwork. Consider writing inspirational phrases on the wall or different quotes each day.

Antique Pantry Door

If you are fortunate enough to have a pantry, replace the traditional door with an antique door. If you visit a local salvage yard, consignment shop, or antique store, you will most likely find a few options that would work for your pantry. For example, an old door that was used in an old farmhouse can become a great accent for your kitchen. Simply hang the door on the same hinges and enjoy the rustic, antiquated charm of your new pantry door.

Another option to consider is an old screen door. While this type of door may show the interior of your pantry, the antique screen door adds a fresh, surprising element to your kitchen.

Concrete Countertops

Granite may be the most popular choice for homeowners replacing their kitchen countertops, but this hard stone is not your only option. Today, more and more people are seeing the benefits of concrete countertops.

Not only are they easy to install, but concrete countertops also provide your kitchen with a durable surface for cooking, serving, dining, and prepping food with ease. They add a rustic yet modern feel to any space, making them a truly worthwhile investment.
