3 Small Kitchen Remodeling Ideas for Any Condominium

There’s no need to forgo elegance when renovating a kitchen for your condo. Many options will stand the test of time, from an open-concept layout to refinishing cabinets. Here are a few ideas from Varian Construction to help create a modern condo kitchen that will impress your guests and make every meal preparation more enjoyable.

Open-Concept Layout

Open condo kitchens are prevalent in today’s condominium plans. Creating an open kitchen will make your entire space look more extensive, spacious and brighter. Islands and peninsulas add storage, workspace and functionality. Chairs or stools can be added to turn your island or peninsula into a multifunctional working and dining area.

The island in your kitchen can be modern or rustic, depending on your preference. If unsure about the size, one of the best tips for a condo kitchen remodeling is to work closely with a contractor like Varian Construction.

A few kitchen layouts include:

  • Gallery
  • L-Shaped
  • U-Shaped

Statement Lighting

Statement lighting comes in many shapes and styles. Fluorescent light has long been a flaw in kitchen design: it can give a harsh, blue tint to the the space. One easy way to instantly make your condo kitchen feel welcoming is to rely instead on hanging pendant lamps with a warmer tone, recessed canned lights, or vintage fixtures for an elegant touch.

Still, one thing is for sure – your guests will take notice! Whether your space features an exquisite chandelier or a set of eye-catching pendant lights, fabulous lighting can transform a room.

Resurface/Replacing Kitchen Cabinets

Cabinets experience a lot of wear and tear. Often, they’re the most worn and damaged parts of an older kitchen, and that tattered look can be a subtle detriment to the sophistication of the entire room. A new coat of paint, perhaps in a pastel shade, will be transformative. And if the budget allows, replacing them entirely with modern, flat cabinets can make a world of difference.

If you don’t have a floor-to-ceiling cabinet or pantry, this is the time to consider doing so. Be sure to use lighter colors on the walls and cabinets. Lighter colors tend to open up the feel of a space.

While replacing cabinets, you can also update or add a backsplash to enhance the modern feel of any new kitchen layout.
