KITCHEN REMODELING TIPS BEFORE THE SUMMER HITS!
Your kitchen is supposed to be the heart of your home. It’s the place everyone gathers for every snack, meal, every dessert, every holiday. You meet in the kitchen each morning to pack lunches, make coffee, cook, meal prep. Sometimes, the kitchen is where bills are paid and homework is completed. Oh, and those midnight snacks—those are secretly eaten in the kitchen by the moonlight, too!
Now, if your heart of the home isn’t big enough for all that you do, or if it doesn’t function well enough for you, isn’t it time you do something about it? Here at Kitchen Cabinets & Beyond in Costa Mesa, CA, we want to help you transform your space! Let’s go over some tips for kitchen remodeling plans this summer!
- Don’t waste your steps
Think—really think—about how you use your kitchen space. Is your floorplan conducive to how you work in the kitchen? From where your refrigerator is placed to the counter space you prefer to pantry, cabinets, dishwasher, and storage spaces—do your steps make sense? Much of remodeling a kitchen has to do with making it efficient. In other words, making it make sense for If yours currently feels disjointed and haphazard, let’s fix it!
- Give your walkways some SPACE
There’s nothing quite like the frustration of bumping into your family members in the kitchen when you are trying to cook dinner. Paths through your kitchen should be at least three feet wide. And, paths through/near what we like to call the “cooking zone” are best at four feet wide (or wider, if you have more than one cook in the family!). So, if your layout isn’t leaving enough room, this should be at the top of your fix-list!
- Smart kitchen features
Anything you can add to make quiet, accident-free, hands-off efficiency possible is worth considering. Here are a few suggestions:
- Motion sense-equipped faucets
- Motion sense-equipped garbage cans
- “Smart refrigerators”—these let you know when you’re running low on mayonnaise, orange juice, etc. There are even options with WIFI, voice recording, televisions, menu planners…
- Soft-close drawers and cabinets
- Quiet dishwasher
- Double oven
Okay, this doesn’t appeal to everyone. But, those of you aspiring Iron Chefs—how great would it be to knock out 2, 3, 4, even 5 dishes all at once? Or, to host family gatherings with the efficiency of TWO ovens helping you?! Pretty great.
- Cabinets to last a lifetime
Truth be told, most homeowners who live in a home previously inhabited by another family do not love their cabinets. Either they’re too small, too tall, configured oddly—or something is undesirable and inefficient. Our experts can help you reconfigure the layout, replace inoperable or outdated cabinets, upgrade everything, or even just spruce them up with new hardware!
It’s summertime in just a few short weeks! Let’s get your kitchen cabinets in Costa Mesa, CA, ready for your family, shall we? The team here at Kitchen Cabinets & Beyond is looking forward to meeting you!
