For most homes, the standard cabinetry, stove, oven, and appliances are enough.
#1 Double Trouble
Double sinks are a must! Each chef can have their own or one can be designated to cleaning fruits and vegetables while the other can store dirty dishes. Double ovens are another great option, especially if you love cooking and baking!
#2 Counter Space
Make sure your kitchen has spacious quality counters of either stainless steel or natural stone like quartz, marble or granite. Installing two islands or just an extra large island can provide that extra counter space you are missing! If you have the space to install two different islands, consider transforming it into a prep area and the other into hidden storage.
#3 Open Floor Plan
When designing a kitchen to accommodate a great cook, movement is essential. Don’t make any corners or other spaces too tight! If your kitchen is closed off to the dining space, it may be a good idea to knock down that wall to create a breezy atmosphere.
#4 Heaps of Storage
If you have enough space, installing a walk-in pantry should be at the top of your list! This way, all of your food and ingredients will be directly in sight and there will be no more rummaging through overfilled drawers. A large pantry may also help you tackle countertop clutter!
#5 Quality Appliances
While this isn’t a renovation, it’s certainly a necessary addition! Especially when cooking at home, investing in some cool and time-saving appliances like steamers, crock pots or sandwich makers are definitely worth the splurge.
