Kitchen Top 5 for Remodeling or New Homes

Whether you are remodeling or building a new home, you will probably want to include the following top 5 Kitchen features:

5. Furniture Finish Cabinetry

Whether your taste runs to light, natural woods, to dark cherry and walnut or to something in between, most, so called, stock cabinet manufacturers offer high-end finishes that once were only available on custom cabinets. As oak has faded in popularity, cabinet manufacturers have introduced cherry, maple, birch, hickory and pine cabinets.  More choices in stain, available glaze finishes and concealed European style hinges allow homeowners the opportunity to give their kitchen cabinetry the look and finish of fine furniture.  Pair those finishes with the many styles of door hardware available today to provide the finishing touch for your new kitchen.

4. Islands

Kitchen islands have gained popularity over the last 15 years.  The reason for this popularity?  Partly because of appearance, but mostly because of function.  Islands allow multiple cooks to work efficiently, even in small kitchens, with a minimum of traffic conflicts.  They’ve become the center-piece of any new kitchen.

3. SS Appliances

Black, white and a variety of colors have come and gone, but stainless steel continues to be in demand for appliances. Always the choice of commercial restaurant kitchens because of durability, stainless steel has gained in popularity for the home kitchen, first with the availability of professional style ranges and cooktops, and now with refrigerators, dishwashers and ovens.

2. Granite Countertops

When it comes to countertops it starts and ends with granite.  No other material comes close in popularity in today’s market.  Granite offers a wide range of colors and price points, with the durability and time-less good looks that savvy homeowners demand.

1. Walk-in Pantry

With today’s big box stores, buying in bulk is the new norm.  A Walk-in Pantry is a must have to store all those items.  It also allows you to quickly see everything you have on hand.  If you are remodeling, find a way to include one.  A clever designer can find a way to put one in.  Everything can be stored in your walk-in pantry, including all those odd-sized cooking and serving pieces that don’t seem to fit in any cabinet.

Find a way to include these top 5 features and your new kitchen will provide you with functionality, good looks and durability for many years to come.
