The kitchen is one area of the home that sees the most wear and tear. All the water, heat, and food spills add up quickly so it’s important to focus on quality and lasting appeal when you’re choosing materials for a kitchen remodel. Here are a few things you should avoid:
The bottom rung of laminate is extremely susceptible to wear and tear. It can melt if you forget to place a hot pad under a pan that’s fresh out of the oven and the edges can chip off from repeated exposure to moisture and heat.
A flat or matte finish is great in rooms with lower traffic, but it’s a bad idea in the kitchen where the walls are regularly exposed to splatters and spills. When designing your kitchen, you need paint that can withstand an occasional heavy scrubbing, so opt for gloss or semi-gloss finishes.
If you watch any home remodeling show, you’ll certainly see kitchens with expensive, elaborate back-splash designs and materials. Those trends can be pricey to pursue and can look dated in a hurry. Subway tile is a cheaper, classic option that you’ll never regret when designing your kitchen, plus you’ll have more room in your budget to purchase quality materials to be used elsewhere.
Just like the counter-tops, your kitchen floor needs to be strong enough to take some abuse. Cheap flooring easily scuffs and peels (especially from moisture). When designing your kitchen, quality flooring is worth the investment.
