The idea behind remodeling your kitchen is to give it a brand new look and feel. Even if you don’t completely transform the room, you can make it a place you can be happy to be in. Efficiency is the point. Here are some ideas and tips for turning your kitchen into a place worthy of being the heart of your home.
Outlets Are In
When it comes to the outlets in your kitchen, you want to get as much out of them as you can. After all, there will probably be a charging hub for everyone in the house to recharge their devices. However, you need to make sure they are placed in a smart location, so they’re easy to access and won’t look out of place. Some considerations include coordinating the color of the faceplates with the backsplash or the color of the wall in the kitchen. You can also think about hiding the outlets behind appliances that never need to be unplugged. On the other hand, you can pair hidden outlets with ones that are easier to see so you can always find one when you need it.
Light It Up
Think about the lighting in the kitchen. Maybe part of the reason you avoid spending time in there to cook is that you can’t see what you’re doing. One option is to add more task lighting when you remodel. Task lighting over the stove or the countertops can let you chop vegetables and prepare meals easily and safely. Alternatively, you can put some lights inside your cabinet, giving the contents an appealing backlight for when you want to show them off, and when you want to find them.
Hide the Appliances
Another idea is to hide the appliances in your kitchen. This process mainly involves the dishwasher and the microwave, two of the most important appliances in any kitchen, even before it gets remodeled. Add some paneling by the dishwasher to help it blend into the cabinets around it, and then plan to put a wall cabinet into your kitchen. This wall cabinet should have a lift-up door to make it easier to access the microwave. That way, you can keep the microwave out of sight when you don’t need to use it.
