If you enjoy spending time in the kitchen, either cooking or sampling tasty dishes, then you probably have a rough idea of what your dream kitchen looks like. But with so many design options and ideas floating around out there, it can be difficult to really pin down what you really want. Here are three must-haves when it comes to remodeling a kitchen with the home cook and food enthusiast in mind.
1. An Organized Pantry
If you pride yourself on whipping up delectable feasts for friends and family, then having a kitchen pantry with ample storage space is a must. Not only does it create a storage space for your growing collection of ingredients and canned goods, you can also use it to stow away small appliances like toasters and blenders to free up space on your countertops.
2. High-Quality Appliances
Home renovations can be a money pit if you do not have a clear idea of what you want, but one thing you shouldn’t be afraid to splurge a little on is high-quality appliances, such as refrigerators, stoves and ovens. Setting aside a budget for good appliances can really enhance your cooking experience and make preparing dishes a breeze for both novices and experienced home cooks.
3. Good Lighting
This is one thing that many homeowners often neglect. When you are renovating or remodeling your kitchen, be sure that you make allowances for proper lighting. Work areas like countertops and stoves should have task lighting so you can see what you are doing. You should also consider installing ambient lighting so you can set the mood if you decide to host dinner parties in your kitchen.
