5 Kitchen Remodel Ideas You Can Tackle This Spring

Now that we are officially in spring, it is once again that time of year when homeowners begin planning out home improvement projects. After a long winter, there certainly are an abundance of options to choose from. You could finally finish your basement, update your bathroom, build a deck, and countless other tasks. The spring weather really does make this the perfect season for home renovation projects. 

Have you considered how much time you spend in the kitchen? Between cooking, eating, entertaining guests, and relaxing, it’s probable that you spend countless hours amongst your kitchen appliances. Since kitchens are always universally seen as a spot to congregate and converse, perhaps you should consider a kitchen renovation this spring. 

If you’re thinking about remodeling your kitchen but aren’t sure where to start, the team at Tandem Contracting has outlined some specific kitchen renovation projects we can tackle for you! 

Liven Up Your Space with Bright Colors

There are a plethora of actionable tasks Tandem Contracting can perform that can completely change the feel of your kitchen. However, there are few that prove such immediately dramatic results as swapping out your kitchen’s current color scheme for a fresh set of paint. 

Did you know that lighter spaces make rooms seem more open and inviting? Conversely, dark walls and cabinets can make a kitchen feel increasingly cramped and small. Because of this, the Tandem Contracting team has repainted countless kitchens, and it always yields beautiful results. 

Since the Tandem team works exclusively with top-quality Benjamin Moore paint products, our clients have their choice of countless colors. However, we understand that narrowing your painting color options can be daunting. That’s why we’re willing to work with you through every step of the way. If you’d like a color consultation, we can gladly provide you with one so we can help you choose the perfect paint color. 

Consider Changing your Cabinets and Storage

Throughout the spring and summer seasons, the team at Tandem Contracting usually loses count of how many cabinets we install. It seems as though everyone wants new cabinets and storage spaces. Considering how many options there are, we’re not surprised that so many people are excited to switch up their current cabinetry.

Whatever your specific needs are, we can plan a kitchen renovation that will check off all of your boxes. If you’d like an open shelving unit installed, we can certainly do that. Have you ordered custom cabinetry with which you’d like to replace your current wood cabinets? That’s no problem! 


With every passing year, more and more people seem infatuated with the idea of adding an island to their kitchen, and we completely understand why. These large units, typically located in the center of a kitchen, can simultaneously serve as a table, storage unit, and a focal point to your beautiful kitchen. 

If you’ve been thinking about adding an island to your kitchen, what’s stopping you from making that daydream a reality? If you’d like to begin the island installation process immediately, consider reaching out to the team at Tandem Contracting

Wine Coolers

Most kitchen designers don’t plan for wine coolers when they’re drafting their blueprints. However, many homeowners realize that a wine cooler is their top desired addition to their kitchen. Thankfully, Tandem Contracting has quickly become an expert at installing wine coolers into your kitchen cabinets.

No matter the specifics of the storage you’re looking for in your kitchen, whether it be new custom cabinets, the addition of an island, adding a wine cooler, or simply upgrading your current cabinet’s doors for a fresh, new look, the team at Tandem Contracting can gladly handle your kitchen storage needs.

Consider Swapping Out Your Current Flooring

It’s not surprising when messes happen in the kitchen. With so much delicious food being prepared, it’s only a matter of time until something is spilled on the floor. If over the years, your kitchen floor has lost its shine, consider upgrading your current flooring option. 

There are so many different floor tiles that can give your kitchen floor an elegant, suave look. If messes often happen on your kitchen floor, you might want to consider a stain-resistant tiling option. 

Of course, tiles aren’t the only option for your kitchen floor. Many homeowners have begun favoring hardwood kitchen floors. While many are averse to this idea because of hardwood’s susceptibility to moisture, modern sealers and polyurethane finishes are making it a much more practical kitchen flooring option. 

If you’re not satisfied with your current kitchen’s floor, why not begin planning for a new kitchen floor this spring?

Think About New Light Fixtures

What kind of lights are currently illuminating your kitchen? The vast majority of kitchens have traditional, recessed lighting implemented within their ceilings. While there’s absolutely nothing wrong with recessed lighting, if you’re looking to elevate your kitchen to the next level, have you thought about some of your other lighting options?

There are so many different types of lighting fixtures, and all can yield beautiful results when installed within the right kitchen. 

Decorative pendant lights come in a wide variety of sizes, shapes, and colors, meaning you’ll surely be able to find a pendant light that fits within your kitchen’s theme. These hanging lights are especially eyecatching and can give your kitchen an added level of sophistication. 

Similarly, multiple lamp fixtures and/or chandeliers can hang over your island or kitchen table. These types of kitchen lighting fixtures can elevate your current kitchen to the next level of classiness!

If you’d like, we can install lights directly into your upper cabinets, so you’ll never again need to worry about not being able to see what’s on your counter. 

The installation of new light fixtures throughout your kitchen is a fantastic home improvement project to take on this spring. If you’d like to begin planning, get in contact with the professionals at Tandem Contracting!

Are You Satisfied with Your Current Countertop?

Over the years, your countertop may have taken a beating. Between hot pots and pans being placed on it from the stove, water building up within it, excessive weight being placed on it and the occasional spill, your counters probably don’t look as fresh as when you first purchased them. 

Lucky for you, there are now more countertop options than ever before! Whether you’re looking for granite, marble, stainless steel, concrete, ceramic, or even wood countertops, each type has an abundance of options. We have faith that you will definitely be able to find one that fits perfectly within your kitchen’s aesthetic. 

Of course, the team at Tandem Contracting will happily install your new countertop and get rid of the previous counter. If you’re having difficulty settling on one specific countertop, give Tandem Contracting a call!
