Storage is paramount
Storage in the kitchen is paramount to the functionality of the space. There is a special need for deep drawers and strategically placed storage areas throughout your kitchen’s design.
Start by adding customized cabinets, specialized dividers, and inserts that will allow you to bring true organization to your kitchen space. You’ll have space for everything you need to do some serious cooking in your newly remodeled kitchen.
Add an in-house grow room
One of the coolest new kitchen features making a splash in the design industry is the in-house grow room. Before your mind wanders too far, it’s not that type of grow room. The in-house grow room is the new wine fridge in American homes.
By adding a lighted, temperature controlled grow room in your kitchen, you’ll have fresh herbs to use in your food at all times. You won’t have to worry about planting a traditional outdoor garden. You can grow your food right in the comfort of your home.
A multifunctional island
Adding surface area and extra storage space to your kitchen is easy with the addition of a functional island. Make sure the island countertops compliment or match the rest of the kitchen.
Some kitchens are even best served when the island includes the sink or cooktop. Whatever the case may be, adding an island to your design adds more work space.
Add a pot filler
For a kitchen that is purposed to please the cook of the house, you’ll find that adding a pot filler is a huge perk. Place a pot filler over the stove, and grant your cook the ability to fill pots with hot water in an instant. A pot filler can also be used to pour water for tea, oats, soups, and it’s great for making gravy.
Invest in energy efficient appliances
Add energy efficient appliances to your new kitchen, and cut the cost of supporting all the fancy contraptions you plan on adding alongside those fancy appliances. Make sure you invest in Energy Star rated appliances, so you can reap the full tax benefits next year.
