Updates Without Costly Renovations?


<< More From Moss Building & Design




Dear Moss Building & Design,

How can I update my kitchen without the cost of a major renovation?


Dear Dulles Mom,

There are several ways to update your kitchen! Here are a few examples of how to remodel your kitchen to fit your family’s needs:

A breakfast nook!
Meal time is one of the best opportunities for family bonding. Having a designated place to eat within the kitchen not only adds monetary value to your home but creates space to make a lifetime of memories.

Add closet, storage, or pantry space.
Update your cabinets to be aesthetically and functionally pleasing. Then you’ll need to fill them in an organized manner. We recommend putting the rarely used kitchen appliances in the harder to reach cabinets as a means of storage. This way you can free up valuable “storage real-estate” in your new, cozy kitchen!

Move around your appliances.
Sometimes simply moving your kitchen appliances around to allow for a better kitchen triangle can be a life-altering way to open up your kitchen!

The kitchen is the heart of the home, so isn’t it about time you loved yours? At MOSS, we’ll provide you with innovative design concepts that add space to the kitchen and recommend layouts, cabinets, and accessories that will help you maximize your space!
