If you are planning a kitchen remodel, you probably have a clear vision of some of the larger aspects of the finished product. You know that you want a multi-functional island, a large double-bowl sink, white cabinetry, an open space for the dining room table, stainless steel appliances, and whatever other features you’ve had your mind set on for so long. But are you sure that you have the very basic features of your kitchen in place as well?
A Few Things to Remember When Remodeling a Kitchen
If you’re in the process of a kitchen remodel, don’t forget these details, some of which make your kitchen a lot easier to use and some of which you cannot be without.
- Outlets and Switches: These are some of the most overlooked parts of any remodel, but also some of the most important. Having outlets in convenient areas to place your microwave oven, blender, coffee maker, and all of the kitchen components you need to cook large meals is something that should be considered carefully. You don’t want to take out the food processor for a quick meal prep only to realize there is no convenient place to plug it in. The same is true for switches, such as the switch for the garbage disposal.
- Lighting: We recommend that you put some thought into your lighting. It’s so vital that you can clearly see what you are doing while you are cooking and cleaning, so you want adequate lighting in every area of the kitchen, and perhaps fixtures that add some style to the home.
- Easy-to-Use Storage Solutions: The basic shallow drawer and cabinet setup is no longer your only option. You can install deep drawers that offer more room for storage and easier viewing of pots and pans and other kitchen items. You can also install cabinetry that extends to the ceiling.
