Sometimes a design process can feel both exciting and overwhelming, with the kitchen being one area where a home buyer will focus a lot of their attention. So to help guide you in the right direction during the selection process for your new kitchen, here are a few quick tips.

Countertops

Countertops are one of the most impactful selections that you can make in the kitchen. But before you jump one way or another, consider a few things first to help guide you toward the right material.

  • How much will your kitchen get used? Will there be a lot of cooking and prep work, or do you have a small family and tend to eat simple?
  • Will care and cleaning be a problem? If you are looking at either granite and engineered quartz, cleaning each surface is easy by using a mild cleaner. However, when it comes to marble countertops, you need to avoid using harsh chemicals and watch out for acidic food and beverages that might remain on the surface for too long because they can stain the surface.
  • Are you willing to seal your countertop once a year? Marble, limestone, and granite countertops are all porous and need to be sealed at least once a year since. While this effort is actually not a big deal to do, it still is another item to add to your homeowner “To Do” List.

Cabinets

Every home, even a home in Mays Landing, NJ, can never have enough storage- especially when it comes to the kitchen. If you have the option to expand the size or amount of cabinets, then make the investment.

If you have several nice items to display, then be sure to add a glass front door to 1 or 2 of the cabinets. You can even add some lighting to help those pieces shine inside the cabinet. Consider upgrading to the next level of cabinet because it isn’t just about aesthetics, it’s about durability. Upgraded cabinets can withstand wear and tear better, and include solid drawers that are designed to endure heavy usage over time.

Flooring

Consider again the amount of wear and tear that your kitchen will receive. There will be things that will fall or be accidentally dropped on the floor – from food to utensils. You also might be standing a lot in one area. Chairs and tables might be moved around a lot. So, select a floor that takes those things into consideration, flows well into the rest of your home and can endure how you foresee that space getting used the most in your new home in Mays Landing, NJ.
