With over 30 years of experience in the kitchen design and remodeling business, we have accumulated a list of our favorite kitchen features that maximize efficiency and add luxury to any kitchen.
Our Favorite Kitchen Features
1. Caddy Corners
45-degree corners allow for extra cabinet space where it might otherwise go unused.
2. Corner Sink
90-degree counter corners are often underutilized and become a place for clutter to collect. Rather than this space going to waste, we can place a sink here to make the space useful.
3. Inset Sink
Inset sinks not only allow for a seamless, clean look but are also much easier to clean where grime could otherwise build up.
4. Lower Drawers
Traditional lower cabinets can easily become a cluttered mess of serving dishes and cookware. Opting for drawers can maximize your storage and keep you organized. We especially love drawers below built-in stovetops where pots and pans can stay organized and easily reachable.
5. Custom Hooded Vent
Whether customized to match your cabinetry or stainless steel to make a statement, hooded vents take a kitchen’s look to the next level and are a favorite among those who love to cook.
6. Glass Upper Cabinets with Lighting
The space above your cabinets can be hard to reach so it’s the perfect spot to display beautiful but rarely used china.
7. Built-In Pantry
If you don’t have a walk-in pantry, a custom-built cabinetry pantry is a perfect option, especially because you can customize shelving and drawers inside to best suit your storage needs.
8. Paneled Refrigerator
For the ultimate custom look, opt for a paneled fridge that matches the rest of your kitchen cabinetry. It brings the whole kitchen together and screams luxury.
9. Kitchen Island with Seating
Kitchens are often the heart of the home. Creating a hub for the favored gathering place can make it more welcoming and comfortable. Plus, it will encourage someone to keep you company while you cook.
10. Contrasting Countertops
Choosing a complimentary countertop material or color adds another level of interest to the kitchen. This works beautifully for kitchen islands.
