Do you have the recipe for that? – 4 key “ingredients” for your dream kitchen makeover

Vancouver Dream kitchen makeover - renovate me!

Your kitchen is the heart of your home – a place to prepare a grand culinary feast or a quick two-bite morsel, to receive and entertain friends and family alike, to chat, share and cherish. Vancouver North Shore-based RenovateMe! Design and Construction can transform your existing kitchen with a dream kitchen makeover. Whether you want a partial remodel or a full kitchen renovation, RenovateMe! can help design, reconfigure and build your perfect kitchen makeover complete with improved flow and increased functionality and practicality – including the installation of new cabinets, counters, tiling, flooring, electrical and plumbing. RenovateMe! has compiled a list of key “ingredients” to consider when imagining your dream kitchen.

Open-Plan Living & Sightlines

Consider integrating your home’s living space with your kitchen to create an open-plan layout. Eliminate superfluous walls, partitions and bulkheads to reveal boundless space and limitless opportunities – to create an open-plan, family-friendly space better suited to today’s interactive and busy lifestyle. Incorporate an island or peninsula complete with additional storage, work surface, breakfast bar and even a serving buffet.


Why not take the opportunity to transform your kitchen by incorporating cabinetry that offers improved accessibility and storage options with the use of drawer equipped units instead of entirely traditional shelved cabinets? Lazy Susans and pull-outs may further assist in maximizing storage and functionality in otherwise inaccessible spaces, while value-added tall floor to ceiling pantries, deeper and extended height cabinets, or built-in appliance cabinets may also be incorporated in a redesign to help improve practicality.


Consider the plethora of countertops available to you when redesigning your kitchen. Depending on your needs and expectations, RenovateMe! recommends solid surface tops in quartz, granite or marble. Quartz counters in 2 or 3cm or double edge 4cm slabs are an excellent choice as they are non-porous and resist staining, never need sealing, are National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) certified food safe and are man-made consisting of 93% quartz and 7% proprietary colouring and resins. When determining your ideal top surface, keep in mind the activities you wish to undertake (and enjoy) in your new kitchen.

Adequate & Efficient Storage

Attempt to maximize the quantity and efficiency of the storage alternatives that you incorporate into your kitchen renovation. Try full extension drawers that are easy to stock, clean and maintain, and empty – you will never again lose another can, box, dish or small appliance, for that matter, in crammed, disorganized and inaccessible cabinetry.
