4 Must-Have Features for Your Kitchen Remodel

4 must have features for your kitchen remodel

Remodeling your kitchen is one of the best ways to improve your home. Your kitchen is the hub of your home, so it's important that it's inviting, attractive, and easy to work in. At Renaissance Renovations, our Brighton remodeling contractors can help you design and build the perfect kitchen for your home. We'll work with you directly to design the kitchen and ensure that you're happy with the project every step of the way.

A great kitchen design immediately improves your entire home, and it can raise your home's resale value. When you're remodeling your kitchen, you need to make sure that you're getting the best features possible. Here are a few of the best features to include in your kitchen remodeling project:

1. Island Cook-Top

Kitchen islands are almost essential to a great design, and adding an island cook-top is a great way to enhance work-flow. Island cook-tops can make cooking for comfortable, and they're also a a great aesthetic improvement. 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

You may never have thought of needing more than one sink in your kitchen, but once you've been in a kitchen with a bar sink, it's easy to start to feel like they're a necessity. Bar sinks can be used as secondary prep stations, or they can be the perfect place to fix a drink.

3. Tray Storage Cabinets

Storing things like cutting boards and baking sheets is one of the biggest problems that people have in their kitchens. They take up more space than they need to when they're stored flat, and retrieving one of them requires moving a whole stack. Tray storage cabinets can solve those problems.

These thinner, taller cabinets can be designed specifically for these items. Store them upright, and you'll save a ton of space.

4. On-Counter Garages

Storing larger appliances away in cabinets can be difficult. Moving them up and down takes a lot of effort, and you're likely already working hard enough in your kitchen. But leaving these items out on the counter means that they'll be taking up valuable space and making your kitchen unsightly.

Adding appliance garages to your counter tops can keep bigger items accessible yet out of sight. Make sure that add electrical outlets to this cabinet to keep it as convenient as possible!
