Reenvision The Heart of your Home

Our families spend a good portion of each day in the kitchen, grabbing snacks, filling water bottles, making meals, and spending time together.

This space is often called “the heart of the home.” A lot happens in the kitchen, and when it isn’t up to par, it creates frustration and can be unproductive. Remodeling and renovating high-traffic areas of the home can be overwhelming. At Northfield Construction Company, we understand that shifting your life around to complete a large-scale project is frustrating. But when you work with our team, we strive to ensure that the transition is as efficient as possible.

Of course, before a project like this can even begin, inspiration needs to be found! Think of this blog post as your first point of reference. Let’s dig into projects big and small that can add value and functionality to your kitchen.

    • Incorporate ample counter space. We’ve never heard a client complain about too much counter space. You deserve room to spread out when prepping meals and organizing food and utensils. It doesn’t matter if you have a big kitchen or a cozy one — there are many ways to incorporate countertops. The result is more usable space!




    • Get creative with your cabinets. Cramped cabinets? It’s time to get creative! Cabinets can be reconfigured and added into an existing kitchen in various and unique ways that satisfy the needs of your space.

    • Find the right flow. The layout of a kitchen is integral to its functionality. If you’re constantly running into countertop corners, if having multiple people in your kitchen at one time causes stress, or if you just don’t know what to do with the space that you have, these may be signs that it’s time to change things up.

    • Invest in appliances that fit your style and needs. Appliance options feel endless these days, but there truly is something out there for everyone. Finding what’s right for your kitchen is not as simple as it may seem. There are many things to consider — including the size of your family, how often you make home-cooked meals, and the types of appliances that you frequently find yourself using. Take all of that into account, along with appliance size and your budget.

    • Achieve optimal organization with a new pantry. Adding a new pantry area to your kitchen provides an excellent opportunity for additional food and small appliance storage. There are many ways to incorporate a pantry. Some may choose to include a walk-in pantry, and others may prefer it be the size of a small closet or even style it similarly to a bookshelf.





    • Add an island. Kitchens benefit greatly from the addition of an island, because islands serve many needs! They provide more counter space, an option for seating, and storage. They all can be uniquely styled as well, meaning that it can easily fit the design of the rest of your kitchen.

    • Expand the kitchen itself. Sometimes, you just have to go all in. If you have the space in your home, expanding your kitchen may be the best option. It’s amazing what taking down a wall can do!


Are the wheels of inspiration turning in your head yet? We hope so! Once you’re motivated to make some moves with your kitchen, call Northfield Construction Company. We can turn your ideas into designs that would make anyone want to kiss the cook!
