What to do if you are tired of your dark kitchen

There are many ways to address a dark kitchen and knowing what to do depends on a host of factors. Here are a few questions I ask in a consultation to determine which solution might be right for a customer:

  • How long do you plan to stay in your home?
  • What is the age of your home?
  • What is the value of your home?
  • How much are you willing to invest in this project?
  • How much dust and inconvenience are you willing to tolerate during this project?
  • Are there work flow issues in your kitchen you would like to improve?
  • Do you have adequate storage?
  • Do you have adequate work space?
  • Do you love everything about your kitchen, except the color?

You see, with so many things that can be adjusted, there is not one way to improve things. I look at paint, lighting, cabinetry, countertop material, floorplan and appliances before deciding. Carefully weighing my customer’s responses, here are 3 possible solutions from most expensive to least:

Complete Renovation - Start from the ground up
Paint the Cabinets - Cosmetic change only
Minor ChangesChange the granite, paint the walls, add lighting.
All these can make a nice change!
