Have you ever been to someone else’s home and marveled at how sensibly designed their kitchen was? When undergoing a kitchen remodel, there should not only be an emphasis on the design aspect of the room but it should be designed with functionality in mind too.
Kitchens are the heart of the home, where we spend most of our time. If you have kids in the house or use the kitchen to cook frequently, then you can understand and appreciate the consideration of a properly thought out kitchen design.
Below are some kitchen additions to add to your new kitchen that aim to make your everyday life a little easier.
Under Cabinet Lighting
Under cabinet lighting makes tasks much easier to do when you can see them easier. Tasks like cutting up vegetables, baking, and measuring out ingredients can be done with better accuracy with under cabinet lighting. This type of task lighting also sets a nice ambiance at night.
Hidden Spice Rack
A hidden spice rack is a nice way to conceal all your spice bottles in a location that makes it easy to grab and go while you’re cooking. Hide a spice rack behind your stovetop with sliding doors that can easily be slid to the right or left when a recipe calls for grabbing your salt, pepper, garlic powder or onion powder.
Multi-Functional Kitchen Island
Multi-functional kitchen islands are the solution to many kitchen needs, such as seating, work space, storage, and entertaining. You have all of this in one when designing a multi-functional kitchen island that is big enough for your space.
A designated area to conceal trash and recycling bins is a nice feature for your newly remodeled kitchen. The last thing you want is for your trash to be sitting out for your guests to see and smell and for your pets to rummage through. Create custom cabinet space just for your trash and recycling to solve this problem.
Bar areas, complete with a wine fridge, cabinet space for stemware, counterspace for cutting lemons and limes, and a sink to wash your barware is a wonderful addition to your new kitchen. Entertain your guests in style with a bar area that has it all in one space.
