For every kitchen remodeling project we’ve done, we’ve always asked our clients to have a checklist of kitchen essentials they want for their kitchen. From backsplashes to water-resistant flooring, these are must-haves in any modern kitchen.
Kiernan Remodeling and Design Inc. explains our top five picks for the kitchen:
Backsplashes cover your kitchen walls with stain- and water-resistant panels. Typically installed behind stoves and sinks, backsplashes keep your kitchen walls dry while also adding aesthetic appeal to the room. With so many tile patterns and designs to choose from, every kitchen can have their own special backsplash installed.
2. Lights and Lamps
Installing multiple light sources should be a top priority during your kitchen remodeling project. It’s important to keep your kitchen well-lit at all times for visibility while cooking. As a bonus, proper lighting adds depth to your kitchen, making it look more captivating than ever.
3. Kitchen Hardware
The placement of cabinets and countertops is critical as you do work in the kitchen because they provide an efficient work space and storage. Have your cabinets installed near your stove and sink to provide easy access to your everyday utensils. Countertops, on the other hand, should be your kitchen’s centerpiece and be placed in the middle to provide space while preparing food.
Like in bathroom remodeling projects, choosing water-resistant flooring is important since your kitchen will often be exposed to spills from liquids while cooking. Fortunately, there are many water-resistant flooring options on the market like tiles, vinyl, composite wood and many more.
5. Kitchen Windows
Another kitchen essential, windows bring daylight into your kitchen and also act as a natural way to ventilate the room while cooking. Ask your contractor which window style best suits your kitchen.
