Three Materials To Consider Avoiding During A Kitchen Remodel

If you’re planning to remodel your kitchen, it is important to research what you are wanting and what options are out there. There is a diverse range of kitchen remodeling options available and choosing the right materials for your project will be easier with preliminary research and an experienced remodeling company to team up with. To help you plan your project, our remodeling professionals are here to discuss three of the top materials you should avoid.

 

Low-Quality Vinyl Flooring

You will walk a lot of miles on your kitchen floor, so you need to invest in quality materials. Inexpensive sheet vinyl flooring tends to be very thin. If water leaks from your refrigerator or dishwasher then the underlayment beneath your flooring can get delaminated, causing bubbles to form. Luxury vinyl tile is a better alternative. It is still affordable and mimics the look of more expensive materials.

Flat Paint

Flat paint is not kitchen-friendly. Stains and splatters are unavoidable in a kitchen and cleaning up those stains and splatters can ruin a flat paint job. Consider using semi-gloss or high-gloss paint instead, since these finishes can stand up to multiple scrubbings, making cleanup in the kitchen a breeze.

Trendy Backsplash Materials

Investing in trendy materials and colors for your backsplash can be a bad idea. In addition, the materials for these backsplashes are often more expensive, and redoing a backsplash every few years isn’t a practical move for many homeowners. Instead, stick to classic designs and materials. An integrated backsplash that matches your countertop material is a good place to start.
