Kitchen Remodel Must-Haves
Everyone wants a fully remodeled, functioning, beautiful kitchen. But, so many put it off for so long that it remains, sadly, just a pipe dream. But, a Costa Mesa, CA kitchen remodel isn’t as grueling and expensive as many homeowners believe it to be. In fact, a transformation is possible without emptying the bank on new countertops, cabinets, and rerouted plumbing.
Check out these suggestions that will have a big impact on your kitchen’s look and feel.
These don’t just look great, they support the serious cook in the family. If your household hosts gatherings, seasonal celebrations, and parties, cooking for a crowd is much easier with two ovens. This dual feature provides a main oven that cooks don’t have to crouch over to use, and a second oven for warming and additional baking. Further, a double oven sits apart from the stovetop, so this addition allows for a new floorplan—one that makes more sense for kitchen use.
Homeowners who’ve incorporated the double oven often complement their kitchen workspace with an island cooktop. Benefits of this feature include:
- Substantial work surface (when built into a large island).
- Eliminated need for a range hood (when a down draft exhaust system is installed). This often results in an opened view from the kitchen to adjacent rooms or added space for more cabinetry.
- Better visibility (rather than having your back to the rest of the kitchen, as in traditional stove and range hood setups).
Designate a corner or an alcove in the kitchen for a coffee bar complete with a coffee maker, filters, coffee mugs, condiments, and an espresso maker. Not only is a coffee station an efficient use of space for the average homeowner, it’s a charming touch to the kitchen design.
Next to the cooking range is where most homeowners find the best use for deep drawers to place their large cook pots and pans. These are much more functional for storage of large items than a cabinet which requires you to bend and dig for what you need.
Hanging Pot Rack
If you’re not a fan of putting your cookware away and out of sight, have a pot rack installed above your kitchen island or sink area. The shiny addition of stainless steel works well as a unique decor feature.
Rollout Tray Storage
There’s nothing like digging through a stack of cooking trays and cutting boards in a cabinet when you need a specific item. A rollout drawer with vertical dividers is a huge space saver and a stress-free way to store the cookie sheets, racks, trays, and cutting boards.
