Kitchens are the real heart of the home, and as such they are undergoing major changes to adapt to the new needs that have arisen in recent years. That's why kitchen renovations are top of the list in home renovation projects, with the quality of the material making all the difference in ensuring the right end result.
What is a complete kitchen renovation?
A complete kitchen renovation is one that involves changing all the elements, including floors and walls, as well as countertops and furniture.
For this type of kitchen renovation you need to turn straight to materials such as Coverlam and Coverlam Top, as this is the key to the successful execution of the project and will guarantee the durability, strength and cohesiveness, both aesthetic and technical, of the kitchen.
Furthermore, these complete renovations can be done in a much shorter time frame thanks to the fact that Coverlam can be laid on top of existing floor and wall tiles without the need for any demolition work.
Ideas for kitchen renovations
Once you've decided to renovate your kitchen, the search starts for ideas and materials for the design. These days, there are many options at hand, with the technological innovation of Coverlam and Coverlam Top being a game changer when it comes to taking on a kitchen renovation and ensuring the success of the project.
Kitchen renovations without demolition work
What was once unimaginable has now become possible with Coverlam. The minimal thickness of the slabs means they can be laid on top of floors and walls without removing the existing tiles and therefore without the need for any demolition work.
As a result, kitchen renovations can be done quickly and easily, doing away with the typical inconveniences involved in this type of work, such as noise, dust and debris.
Kitchens with an island
Including an island in the design is indeed a leading trend in kitchen renovations. This option lends functionality to the space, facilitating activities such as cooking or eating with family and friends.
On the other hand, in terms of aesthetics, kitchens with island represent a genuine game changer; they can be used as an element marking a change between the kitchen and the dining room, or as a central part of the room—even as an extension of the worktop, with the island being used as a kitchen bar or work station.
This is one of the most valued features in today's kitchen renovations. With the wide range of collections available in Coverlam and Coverlam Top, you can tile floors and walls, countertops the backsplash, and the kitchen furniture with the same design, providing unparalleled aesthetic continuity.
This continuity is further enhanced by the large size of the material, which helps to visually open up the room. In this respect, large-format Coverlam is the most suitable choice for both smaller kitchen areas—by maximizing the available space—and for larger kitchens, where the chosen design will be enhanced by the grandeur of the large format.
Integrating the sink into the countertop has become a well established design idea in today's kitchen renovations.
As well as being another key element for achieving aesthetic continuity, this integration is only possible with a material such as Coverlam Top, which does not scratch or require special treatment, unlike traditional sinks in stainless steel or resin.
The minimal thickness of Coverlam means it can be laid on top of cabinet doors and drawers; this makes it ideal for harmonizing materials, expanding and optimizing the design possibilities for this room.
