Create an Oasis with a Kitchen Island Remodel
Are you thinking about a kitchen island remodel? A multi-use kitchen island is one of the most requested features in a kitchen renovation. Islands are the perfect place to enjoy hors d’oeuvres or sip a glass of wine after a long day. Extra cabinets and drawers keep cookware and kitchen necessities within easy reach, and the countertop above provides more elbow room for preparing your favorite dish.
Kitchen island remodeling can not only provide tons of extra storage and prep space, but additional seating, as well. These central gathering spots provide much-needed counter space where lunches are made, ingredients are mixed, homework is done, and parties are hosted. You’ll never have to worry about not using your kitchen island enough — it’ll naturally become one of the most-used spaces in your home.
The key to kitchen island remodeling to make it more efficient and useful is to ensure it’s the right size and layout for your space. Our kitchen island remodel experts will ensure nearby appliances are located in places that enhance workflow rather than disrupt it. And while having an oversized kitchen island is appealing, we’ll make sure the size of your kitchen can support it.
Kitchen Island Remodeling Ideas
A live edge countertop slab adds natural character and makes the kitchen island even more of a focal point. It’s the perfect way to set your kitchen apart.
Adding custom panels to your kitchen island remodel will give it a unique flair. It takes ordinary island cabinets and gives them a personality that matches the rest of your kitchen.
With a countertop overhang and toe kick, your kitchen island can function as a casual dining area, too. Work with your designer to create a custom island big enough for the number of seats you want.
A PLACE TO GATHER
The kitchen island is literally in the center of your kitchen — making it the focal point and central gathering space. If you live in Columbus, Ohio create one that’s both functional and beautiful through kitchen island remodeling with The Creative Kitchen.

Refacing Kitchen Cabinets: What Style Is For You?
When it comes to choosing from cabinet refacing styles for your kitchen, it’s a personal choice. Whether you’re into shaker-style, mid-century modern, contemporary or traditional kitchen cabinets, they’re all well-loved by designers. And if you’re looking for a seamless cabinet refacing option, inset cabinets may be an ideal choice.
Yes, there are many options, but we’ll expertly guide you through various refacing styles for your kitchen to help you choose the right one for you.
Your Cabinet Renovation: Reface or Replace?
You have two options for upgrading your kitchen cabinets: refacing the fronts, or completely replacing them. With replacing, all of your existing cabinets are removed, then new upper and lower cabinets are installed. Refacing doesn’t replace the entire cabinet, just the front (plus hardware and backsplash, if you choose).
Types of Cabinet Refacing Styles
Don’t like the look of your current kitchen? Is it far from the style of the rest of your home? Luckily, there are dozens of cabinet refacing styles to choose from. One of the best reasons to reface your cabinets is the ability to change the style of your existing cabinets to something fresh and new — without completely removing the entire cabinet.
Some of the most popular cabinet refacing styles right now are flat-front cabinets (also called slab doors), shaker cabinets, and raised panel cabinets. If you want to jump on current trends, choose cabinets in bold colors or deep stains like walnut, and ditch the hardware for an ultra-modern look.
No matter which cabinet refacing style you choose, you’re going to love the finished product.

Flooring ideas for Columbus, Ohio kitchens
From hardwood or laminate to tile or luxury vinyl, kitchen flooring has to be functional, efficient, comfortable, and clean. Beyond that, it has to look good. You should love whatever type of kitchen flooring you use, and it’s a good idea to choose something that’ll stay trendy for years to come.
Every family — and every home — is different. We’ve worked with many clients to help them select the best kitchen flooring for their unique needs. Here are a few of our favorites:
- Luxury vinyl plank flooring: This material is fully moisture-proof and impervious to wear and tear. It’s completely resistant to water damage and most stains — something kitchens see often. When it comes to appearance, luxury vinyl plank flooring is attractive. It comes in a variety of colors, textures, grains, and sizes.
- Hardwood flooring: Available in a variety of grains, textures, colors, and sizes, this type of kitchen flooring holds up well over time and is easy to care for (as long as the type you select is high quality and installed and sealed properly). Bonus: Hardwood almost always adds value to a home and is ideal for resale.
- Tile flooring: This is a classic, functional and appealing material that many homeowners gravitate towards, and for good reason. There are so many options with colors, patterns, and sizes. Many homeowners choose ceramic tile because it’s stain and spill-resistant — perfect for the kitchen environment. Messes are fairly easy to clean up and it’s not high maintenance.
- Natural stone: This is a one-of-a-kind, beautiful way to finish a kitchen, and it’s elegant, classy, and sophisticated. Marble looks wonderful with almost any color scheme and style, too.
Kitchen cabinet hardware goes beyond pure functionality
A simple change of cabinet or appliance hardware can make a huge difference in a kitchen. With the right materials, cabinet or appliance hardware can give an older kitchen a new, modern look. Pair this upgrade with cabinet refacing and you’ve got yourself a fresh, updated space.
Appliance and Cabinet Hardware Ideas
If you’re considering replacing your cabinets’ old, out-of-date doors and knobs with more modern ones, we suggest the following trendy options:
- Modern, sleek knobs and pulls in brushed nickel or chrome
- Brass knobs and pulls in a brushed or polished finish
- Black knobs and pulls in a satin or matte finish
Work with our design professionals to define what kitchen hardware and accents make sense as you consider the kitchen as a whole. As a general rule of thumb, finishes like oil rubbed bronze, warm coppers, gold or the always versatile chrome.
