Modernizing the kitchen is certain to help improve the lifestyle and increase the market value of the property. But renovating the kitchen is something that shouldn’t be approached lightly and needs careful consideration. Here are five tips to help in the process of creating the perfect cooking space for the passionate home chef:
Use high-quality materials, hinges, and drawer slides to avoid constant issues with drawers sticking or cabinet doors that won’t stay closed. The preferred material for the cabinet doors and sides is wood veneer because it provides long-term strength and durability. Materials to avoid include particle board, MDF, laminate, and melamine.
Make the most of the available space in the kitchen by using the floor and wall cabinets that go from floor to ceiling. This makes it possible to increase the storage space and lowers the risk of not having somewhere to place new kitchen appliances at a later date. For ease in reaching the items stored in the cabinets, it benefits to avoid having the top of the wall cabinets at a height that exceeds eight-foot.
