4 Must-Have Features for Your Kitchen Remodel
Your kitchen is one of the most important parts of your home, and it naturally becomes the centerpiece of most homes. Every member of your household uses your kitchen every day, and probably multiple times per day, so it’s important that your kitchen is attractive, comfortable, and functional. At Christie’s Design Build Remodeling, our Denver remodeling contractors can work with you to design and construct the perfect kitchen for your home.
An excellent kitchen design will immediately raise your home’s resale value and transform the way that you use your kitchen on a daily basis. It’s important that the new features of your kitchen make it more functional and comfortable. Here are a few of our favorite features for custom kitchen remodeling:
1. Island Cook-Tops
Moving your cook-top from above your oven to your kitchen island offers a number of great benefits. Island cook-tops make cooking more comfortable and efficient, and they can improve the aesthetic design of your kitchen. Typically, if your cook-top is on your kitchen island, then your ovens will be built into the walls, making them more accessible, improving aesthetic design, and saving space.
2. Bar Sinks
Most people probably never think about needing a second sink in their kitchens, but adding a smaller bar sink during your kitchen remodeling project can help you maximize efficiency in your kitchen. You can use your bar sink as a secondary prep area, or just use it to fix a drink!
3. Tray Storage Cabinets
One of the biggest problems with organization in kitchens is the storage of things like cutting boards and baking sheets. These items take up more space than they should need to when they’re laid flat, and retrieving one of them may require moving a large stack. Upright storage cabinets can make it much more easy to store and access these items.
4. On-Counter Garages
Storing larger appliances away in cabinets can be very problematic. Moving large and heavy appliances up and down between uses can take a lot of effort and become very frustrating. But storing them on the counter top is unsightly. Adding an appliance garage to your counter tops keeps larger items more accessible, but it also keeps them out of site. Make sure that add electrical outlets to this cabinet to keep it as convenient as possible!
