Are you planning a home renovation to make it more enjoyable to live in? While at the same time increasing its value? One of the most important upgrades you can make is the kitchen.

The kitchen is central to any home. It’s where homeowners and families spend lots of time. And it’s also one of the most important considerations for homebuyers, who prioritize a nice, updated kitchen above almost everything else. 

A kitchen remodel is a huge project. With kitchen remodeling, there are so many factors to consider and so many individual choices to make.

But if you really want to add some pizazz to the final product, look beyond the custom countertop and think about doors. Swinging doors can take a bland kitchen and turn it into a masterpiece.

So why are swinging doors perfect for the kitchen? Read on below to find out why these should be front and center in your kitchen remodel plan. 

  1. Great for Closed Floor Plans

While many new homes offer an open floor plan, with the kitchen opening to the dining and living area, older homes don’t have this luxury. To get to the kitchen, you have to navigate hallways, tight corners, and doors.

The kitchen is the center point of a home, with constant traffic. Swinging doors make it easy to get into and out of the kitchen with full hands, like when carrying groceries in or serving dinner out on the table. 

  1. Impress Guests

When you have swinging doors as one of your main kitchen features, your kitchen is going to feel like it belongs in a high-end restaurant. When your friends and family make their way into your kitchen for appetizers, you can bet they are going to be jealous.

Few things feel as cool as walking through a swinging door. 

  1. Unique Kitchen Decor

Standard interior doors are almost all the same. They’re basic, made of wood, and don’t add any appeal to the rooms they are in.

But swinging doors like these mid century modern doors are unique and add charm and character to your kitchen. They are a design centerpiece that can tie your entire kitchen together.

If you ever wonder what your kitchen is missing when you look around, it’s probably a swinging door. 

  1. Easy to Prop Open

Swinging doors are easy to open with your foot, back, or shoulder, so you’ll rarely feel the need to hold these doors open. But if you’d like to keep them closed, it’s easy to add a propping mechanism to hold the doors in place. 

  1. Have Windows

Most swinging doors will have windows on them. This makes it easy to see if someone is on the other side of the door before you open it. No more surprises when carrying a stack of dishes.

Make the Most of Your Kitchen Remodel

You are likely only going to perform a kitchen remodel once. You might as well go all out and make all of the upgrades you are hoping for, as you often only have one chance to get it right.

Do yourself a favor and get swinging doors installed the first time around. You’ll be very glad you did.
