As the saying goes, the kitchen is the heart of the home. It is the room where we go to fuel ourselves, our families, and our guests. It is often the room where we start our day with a morning cup of coffee or where we end the evening with a glass of wine or dessert. With such an important function and place in our lives, having a kitchen you love is truly essential.
At Beaulive, we believe that kitchens should reflect the unique needs of the owners and we are happy to lend our expertise in tackling such a project. Here are some of the advantages of upgrading your kitchen.
Why take on a kitchen renovation?
1. Add your individual design touch
Perhaps the most enjoyable aspect to a kitchen renovation is designing your dream kitchen. Do you like custom marble and a colorful backsplash or are you a modern minimalist? As one of the rooms where we spend most of our waking hours, it is important that you enjoy your kitchen’s aesthetic.
2. Match your lifestyle
Everyone has a different relationship with cooking and the kitchen, so your space should reflect your own lifestyle. Are you a home chef that needs a proper gourmet kitchen? Or perhaps you never cook, so only need the bare minimum. From bachelor spaces to kitchens that can accommodate large families—and everything in between—the team at Beaulive is well-equipped to help you discover and build your perfect kitchen.
3. Increase functionality
New York City has some of the country’s most revered homes, but oftentimes these more historic properties require some renovations to bring them up to today’s standards of modern comforts and technologies. An example of a functional renovation is trading a galley-style kitchen for one with an open floor plan perfect for entertaining. Not only will the renovation appease your personal sensibilities, but improving a home’s functionality and flow is also one of the easiest ways to add value to your home.
4. Improve energy efficiency
Older homes often come with outdated appliances that can be both unattractive and inefficient. Adding energy-efficient appliances to your kitchen not only reduces your carbon footprint, it will also lower your utility bill. Many of our clients also find adding windows or skylights bring in more natural sunlight and reduces the need for artificial lights.
5. Upgrade to high-end, luxury appliances and finishes
As the heart of your home, your kitchen should be a focal point. It’s design aesthetic should match the luxury of the home in which it resides. Upgrading your kitchen’s accessories and appliances will breathe new life into the space while allowing you to leave your unique stamp on the room. Your kitchen is more than just a room, it can be a work of art built exclusively for you.
