If you’re planning a kitchen remodel or are simply looking to make some upgrades, the sheer number of available kitchen renovation features can be overwhelming. It’s important to hone in on the features you like best, and prioritize them in your kitchen renovation project.
Here’s a rundown some common kitchen features that add aesthetic appeal and functional convenience. These kitchen remodeling ideas should have you well on the way to your dream kitchen.
Double ovens enable you to have a main oven that can be accessed without bending over, and a secondary additional oven that can be used to cook at a different temperature when needed. They also open up the possibility of an island cook top, allowing more flexibility for your kitchen’s floorplan.
An island cooktop sits flush with the kitchen counter on a kitchen island. This allows for ample counter space surrounding the cooktop, and can also be outfitted with a downdraft exhaust system, eliminating the need for a view-obstructing range hood.
An appliance garage keeps frequently used appliances accessible, but keeps them out of sight when they’re not being used. This tidies up counter space, allowing a sleeker look.
A built-in refrigerator is customized to your kitchen, and is flush with kitchen cabinets or other appliances. This keeps the look of your kitchen smooth and integrated, and makes more efficient use of square footage.
Warming drawers can be used to warm plates or keep food hot while other dishes are prepared. This adds a lot of functionality, but doesn’t require a lot of space.
Built-in Trash/Recycle Drawer
A trash and/or recycle drawer that’s built into your kitchen cabinets is very convenient, and also keeps pets and small children from accessing your kitchen trash. This is another very convenient, functional kitchen upgrade.
