If you are a century home owner, you know that century home kitchen renovation is a big and important project. The kitchen in a century home is the heart of the home recognizable by charming, old time features. We are here to give you ideas on how to update your kitchen, without removing the charm you fell in love with in the first place!
Upgrade The Flooring
Many kitchens have very worn and tattered linoleum flooring. You may find several layers of linoleum flooring with a pleasant surprise underneath. You may find the original hardwood flooring, which you may opt to restore to the original condition. If you’re not so lucky to have hardwood floors that are in good shape, consider installing new engineered hardwood, laminate, or vinyl flooring. The hardwood and laminate flooring options will give you a more authentic look of the original home, but should your dishwasher leak, your floor could be ruined. Vinyl flooring is 100% waterproof and has many wood styled options that are perfect for a remodel. Choose the flooring that best fits your style and needs.
Removing old wallpaper is a pain, but once you remove it, the possibilities are endless. Freshen the place up with a new back splash and paint and you’re ready to go!
New Cabinet Hardware
If you like the shape and color of your cabinets, but something just looks off, try new cabinet hardware. Century homes can have aged and outdated kitchen hardware like glass knobs, so switching them out for more modern design pulls can make all the difference.
Remember to combine the look and feel of today’s freshness, as well as the character that your century home has to offer. When you combine the crisp, clean lines of the 21st Century, your home will be ready to take on another 100 years.
