Summer has arrived and is quickly approaching its end, but it still isn’t too late to start your summer kitchen project to get ready for those busy holidays ahead. The Rugrats are about to go back to school and you are going to have more time on your hands to tackle some projects at home while they are away. The kitchen is the one room in a home that can instantly increase the value of any home, so we recommend you don’t let it go untouched for too long. Here are a few musts for your modern kitchen remodel.
- Add Space! Living in a cramped kitchen is no way to perform your daily cooking task and certainly is not the way to entertain your guest. Adding space, by knocking down a wall or adding an extension may not always be a viable option for you or your home, but that doesn’t mean you can’t add space. Your kitchen could have 10 different layouts, you just have to get creative. You can always make your space feel larger by brightening it up with a white shaker style cabinet and you can utilize the wall space you already have to convert your kitchen into a cooking paradise.
- Add a large island! A large island or peninsula in your kitchen is absolutely a must have. This is a gathering point for anyone who enters your kitchen, the bigger the better. This area of your kitchen isn’t just somewhere to sit, it can also be used as prep space, a buffet style table, and the underneath cabinetry adds a tremendous amount of storage space.
- An appliance garage. You don’t always have to stop your cabinetry where the back splash meets it. Extend your cabinetry all the way down to your countertops for even more increased storage. This will allow you to keep some of your larger amenities out of your base cabinets and hidden on your countertop. No more bending over to pick up that heavy mixer!
All of these musts are to help make your kitchen the best possible space it can be, weather its adding more space to gather with friends and family or adding more reachable storage to increase the productivity of your daily cooking, you certainly can’t go wrong.
