Are you looking for a home remodeling project that will significantly boost your home’s value and beauty, while also improving your quality of life? Kitchen remodeling is one of the most valuable home upgrade projects you can undertake.
In today’s post, Highland Design + Build Birmingham suggests kitchen upgrades that improve both form and function.
Counter Islands With a Cooktop
If you like to cook, you’ll definitely appreciate the amount of working space a cooktop counter island provides. Kick it up a notch by installing a downdraft exhaust system. Warming drawers also work well for cooktop stoves. Choose longer drawer handles that can double as towel bars.
A Drawer for Everything
Kitchens are notorious for clutter, and disorganization is neither beautiful nor functional. You can avoid this problem by finding a place for all your kitchen things in drawers. Ask Highland Design + Build Birmingham, your home improvement company, to replace your traditional dishwasher with a dishwasher drawer. Organize garbage and recycling in a deep drawer. Install deep-bottomed drawers for large pots and pans right next to your cooktop or oven.
Out-of-the-Box and Practical
Find out where your plumbing line runs. You can install faucets pretty much wherever it goes. Consider placing a cold water faucet on the backsplash high enough to fill up a large pot. If you have a large and busy kitchen, install a second sink. For example, you can install a bar sink to create an additional prep area when you’re cooking a feast.
