4 Kitchen Remodeling Ideas for Today’s Family

Most homebuilders design the kitchens in their homes based on the number of bedrooms, with the thought that most families have about the same number of people as bedrooms. However, today’s families often differ significantly from what builders plan for. Blended families may have a varying number of people in the household on any given day. Some families bring aging parents into the home, while empty nesters may welcome their grown children and families back. All of these situations are great reasons to call your local remodelers.

4 Kitchen Remodeling Ideas for Todays Family

Open Concept

This is a common request for families with small children. They prefer to be able to cook dinner and still keep an eye on the rest of the family. It’s also popular among families who love to entertain. The biggest hurdle with an open-concept kitchen remodel is determining if the wall or walls we’re removing are loadbearing, and installing new support. 

Adding Space

If your family has grown (or is about to), you may need more space. The additional space may be needed for a larger table or more storage. Of course, if you’ve recently bought a home with the intention to do a kitchen remodeling project, you may already know you need more space. The space may come from creating an open-concept living area, an addition or from another adjacent room. If you need more space, we’ll help you find the best way to get it.


A big kitchen remodeling request is from families who love to cook and want a chef-style kitchen. If this is your reason for remodeling, you may realize that because you want bigger appliances, you’re going to need more space – which either means an addition or taking the space from another room. Creating a gourmet or chef-style kitchen means different things to everyone, so your remodelers may ask a lot of questions to determine what you really want and need.

Modernizing the Space

The most basic type of kitchen remodeling project doesn’t include much change. It is simply a modernization of the space. For some people, that might mean deep drawers rather than cabinets. New light fixtures and modern elements are certainly part of this remodel. You may even decide that you want specialized storage, two-toned cabinets, a coffee bar or cabinet-style appliances. Modern means different things to different homeowners, which is why working with experienced remodelers will make a difference in how well your new kitchen reflects your vision.
