5 Kitchen Remodeling Ideas

Kitchen Remodeling Ideas to Impress Your Guests 

When food, family, and friends gather, a kitchen becomes a place for fellowship and rejuvenation. Oftentimes, as we reflect, we find that some of our favorite memories are born in the kitchen. With the importance we place on this room, is it time for you to consider a kitchen remodeling? 

What kind of kitchen design matches your preferences? Do you prefer a trendy, chic environment, or a more timeless appeal? These and a plethora of other questions arise when we begin to think about kitchen remodeling.

The possibilities are endless, and the process is quite enjoyable when you take the proper approach. Whether you’re remodeling your kitchen for a sale or to freshen up your home, here are a few Houston kitchen remodeling ideas that will impress your guests. 

Bold Lighting Decisions 

Lighting can be easy to ignore throughout the kitchen remodeling process. However, it truly deserves a bigger spotlight and much more recognition for its impact on your space. Thoughtful lighting can be a showstopper in your home if you allow it to be. To add a sense of drama and charm to your kitchen consider hanging pendant lighting. 

These lights make a bold statement that can steal the spotlight from your decor. When you elect to opt for LED lighting that perks up your kitchen island and cabinets, it can also be an energy-efficient option. 

Energy-efficient lighting lasts longer and contributes to smaller bills as well. When you bring in an experienced design team such as ours, you can work with experts to find a balance so that these bold lights don’t become an overwhelming aspect of your kitchen remodel. 

Remove Walls for an Open Concept 

Tearing down walls has become a common process in remodeling for many homeowners. When it comes to kitchen remodeling, though, you can accomplish quite a bit with open spaces. 

Open concept layouts often allow for more communal time in the kitchen. This is due to the fact that they foster a warmer, more inviting environment. Open kitchens often translate to a more casual appeal that encourages interaction. They blend into your adjacent living spaces, allowing for more conversation and entertainment while cooking or cleaning. 

Strip Down with Minimalism 

The trend of minimalism has found its way into kitchen remodeling as more people embrace the lifestyle. The kitchen can often become a crowded place, but a minimalist kitchen design can give your home a sleek appeal. A reduction in the number of upper cabinets will allow for an open, airy feel. 

End-to-end cabinets can clutter your space, so you might opt for open shelves to display artwork, travel memories, or other media. Kitchen remodeling experts often suggest no-frills designs that are more enduring. For example, they might choose horizontal cabinet pulls that maintain a clean, minimalist look. 

Brighten Up Your Space with Color 

No longer are kitchens expected to bear bleak creams and grays. People often love a pop of color in the kitchen remodel that energizes the space. It may seem to be a simple touch. However, this small note of color can add a new look and appeal to an older kitchen. 

Choosing an appetizing color can motivate you to cook and relish those meals with your loved ones and guests. When you don’t wish to paint an entire wall with a bold color, consider opting for colorful upholstery, pots, and pans, or even lights.

Add an Exciting Accent 

During a kitchen remodel, the backsplash of the kitchen can often go unnoticed. When you want to upgrade your home and consider it an investment for the future, adding a new backsplash can be an excellent accent. 

The backsplash can have a small impact on your budget while offering a high impact on the aesthetic. From metal tiles to shimmering glass, a wide array of options are available. Be sure to match it with the rest of your kitchen decor to harmonize the look and feel.

Remodeling Your Kitchen? Choose the Perfect Cabinets

Remodeling Your Kitchen? Choose the Perfect Cabinets  

Kitchen cabinets are perhaps one of the most useful upgrades for remodeling your kitchen. All of your appliances and kitchen goods will finally have the home they deserve. Moreover, kitchen cabinets can be strategically placed during a remodel so that you never struggle to find anything. But, what’s the best way to plan for remodeling in your kitchen? 

Choosing the Best Cabinets While Remodeling Your Kitchen

When you begin to remodel your kitchen and want to focus on your cabinets, you need to choose the type that best suits your needs. Do you need to focus on efficiency? Trying to make your space feel more open? Selecting the right type and style of kitchen cabinet can be draining. Here are a few types to consider while planning your remodel: 

  • Base: These sit under the counter and typically come with a toe kick – a recess on the bottom of the cabinet. This allows you to stand directly at the counter without stubbing your toe on the cabinet door. It improves balance and reduces fatigue by ensuring you never lean over your counter. 
  • Tall: These are standalone units often ideal for pantry or equipment storage. Their floor-to-ceiling height makes them an excellent storage solution for remodeling. 
  • Wall-Mounted: A front-opening wall-mounted cabinet can prove quite ergonomic and be an incredibly efficient use of space. 
  • Specialty Cabinets: Not seeing what you need when you look around for inspiration? Customized cabinets will help you maximize efficiency during your remodeling project – bottle racks and corner cabinets are just two examples of utilizing space creatively. 

Going for Quality While Remodeling 

Once you know what types of cabinet you need in your kitchen remodeling, finding the right quality grade comes next. There are four standard categories here, all based on the quality of construction: 

  • Ready-to-assemble: These are often available in home stores and require assembly. 
  • Stock: Contractors are able to construct size-specific units for your kitchen from modular units. These are attractive and affordable without losing quality. 
  • Semi-Custom: These cabinets will offer a broad array of styles and features. They can be altered for depth or decoration to enhance your remodeling design. 
  • Custom: Custom units are diverse in style and functionality because they’ll be designed to meet your needs and specifications. You can also opt for hand-built cabinets from artisans for a special touch in your kitchen. 

When you know what you need for remodeling your kitchen and in what fashion, it’s time to choose the style, finishes, and features of your dream kitchen.

Stone counter tops

Stone counter tops is not something you wait to the last minute to think about. You need to work it into your budget to get the most for what you can afford.

There are many types of counter tops to choose from: Corian, Granite, Quartz, Quarzite, Marbel, Concrete and more. There are man made products and natural products, which can all leave your head spinning. But when looking, you need to focus on functionality and care for the location it is being put, as well as the overall look. Some products do not do well in water areas or have pores that can allow wine and other things to soak in. If you are working with a natural product, be sure to find the slab you want and let your supplier know, because the look of the same granite can change from piece to piece.

For all of you wanting to have that oversized island in the kitchen or a wall in the bathroom. Most slabs only go up to a certain size. Very few suppliers offer an oversized piece and then only in certain items and colors. So if you are not prepared ahead of time, you can end up with seams in the middle of your island.

These are just a few things you need to know when choosing the right counter top for you.

Allow HG’s design team to assist you in getting the right look for you.

Kitchen Sinks

Kitchen sinks no longer have to be the same ones your grandmother had! There is such a variety of sinks available now, your sink can not only be functional, but beautiful!

When looking at kitchen sinks, you need to think about your budget, the overall care of each different type of material. the size cabinet you have in which to work with, functionality different sinks offer and the look you desire your kitchen to have.

I LOVE the new sinks with shelving added, where it changes the sink to multifunctional sink at one time. Yet they are beautiful and enchance the beauty of the kitchen.

Allow our design team to help create a kitchen for you that is not only functional, but the exact style you desire.


Flooring is one of the most important features when designing your home!

For when you open the door your floor says: Come, welcome home. Where you are more than family; It can say you have just arrived and will be made to feel luxurious. Or it can be fun and exciting, making you want to know more about what is inside.

From LVT to Hardwood and Ceramic to Marbel (and everything in between). Let our Design team help you create the look you are wanting to acheive.

Shower remodel

Taking a small area and enlarging it can be done in many cases. This home had flooded, so it was time for change!

We took a 3×3 shower and created a 6×4 oasis. We not only increased the area, we put in two shower heads, a light, a large bench seat, 2 nooks and a beautiful sliding door. This kept the center of the room open and free to move around.

Contact HG’s design team and allow them to create an Oasis just for you!

The world of tubs

When you start to try to install a new tub, you find that there is a whole world of tubs out there.

So how do you possibly find the right one that is the right size?

First you need to know what kind you are looking for; a free standing, an alcove, a drop in, undermount or walk-in? Second, you must know the size area in which you are working in. (How long and how deep.) Third, do you want to add a jacuzzi? If so, you will need electricy run.

Fourth what kind of material do you want your tub:

Acrylic: Lightweight, easy to repair, and available in many colors and shapes, acrylic tubs can be more moderately priced.

Fiberglass: These tubs are lightweight, reparable, and often more affordable than acrylic options.

Cast Iron: Enameled cast iron is durable, solid, excellent at retaining heat, and available in many colors.

Porcelain: Usually made with a cast iron or steel base, porcelain-enameled tubs have an affordable, luxurious look that’s resistant to scratching and will retain its glossy finish for years.

Copper: This artisan option, often constructed with hammered recycled copper, is a costlier but one-of-a-kind finish that grows richer with time.

Granite/Marble: With a one-of-a-kind natural look, stone tubs are often hand-carved and excellent at retaining heat.

With so many options, let our design team assist you in re-designing your bathroom with a tub that just right for you.

Paint Colors

When painting a room there are many factors to consider:

Room size, ceiling height, lighting by luminess and/ or natural, then desired overall look.

In the desired overall look, are you going for the dramatic? Are you wanting to acheive a calm peaceful enviroment? Do you want what is trendy and in fashion right now? Are you wanting to make your room look bigger? Or do you want a warm and cozy room.

Once you have decided this, are there any accents you want to play on when designing? Are there knooks or walls you want to pop, or do you want everything in the same color?

Now here is where the fun begins. DECIDING THE COLOR/S!

We recommend Sherwin Williams paint. They have a variety of types of paint and thicknesses. Some are great for scuff marks, etc. from kids. While others have a primer inside to make painting 1 to 2 coats, even over red paint! Also they are very good a color matching most any color you desire.

Once you have chosen a paint you want to try, buy a sample can and put a lot on one of the walls you are going to paint. A little is not going to give you the effect you are looking for. Remember the colors from the floor, furniture and drapes can change the way the color looks on the wall. So leave it there for a few days and look at it in the daytime and at night. Now you can see if this color is going to be pleasing to your eyes.

Think you got it down? Well think some more. There are colors that cause extra stimuli on the brain. While others are a color that can cause depression. So let the experts with HG Luxury Homes design team help you find the color that will best suit your needs and gives you that awe feeling when you arrive home!

Breakfast rooms

Breakfast rooms, lets make them extrodinary!

Windows give a open feel along with bringing the beauty of the outdoors in. While a decorative ceiling brings your eyes up and gives the room height and elegance.

Since the breakfast room is usually a place most people spend time in each day. Make sure to make the most of the space, no matter how small, and decorate it in a manner that is warm, inviting and makes others do a double take because its not the ordinary breakfast room most people see.
