Kitchen remodels are often the most fruitful of construction endeavors when it comes to home remodeling. When you upgrade your kitchen, you are upgrading your entire home. The value of your home dramatically increases when you put work into the kitchen, as this is usually the area of the home that gets the most traffic flow. It is the central location of a household where people gather, celebrate, and of course, cook. Therefore, a kitchen should be warm, inviting, and above all, functional. How a kitchen functions is highly individualized, but there are ways to upgrade a kitchen with the necessary accessories that will benefit you and your family personally as well as future owners if you ever intend on selling. Here are some ideas of the most necessary kitchen accessories that will improve your kitchen’s functionality and feel:
One of the first noticeable aspects of a home is the countertops. Not every countertop is as functional as the next, so it is important to do thorough research on what type of countertop material will best suit your needs, but retain the highest value simultaneously. Granite countertops are popular, but are no longer the most easy to maintain—especially because there are granite alternatives, such as quartz, which is much easier to clean and can be far more functional because of their durability and resistances to stains and scratches.
Perhaps as equally important as countertops, your kitchen needs to have adequate storage space. If you have a smaller kitchen, with the help of professionals you can come up with some really creative, functional, and aesthetically pleasing options for kitchen organization techniques. For instance, pantries that have multi-level pull out drawers are a great way to organize spices and maximize the space available. It also makes pantry items easily accessible and visible at first glance. Cabinetry is critical to the overall appeal of kitchen, but it can be a little costly. Luckily, cabinetry and countertops can be purchased at whole sale prices if you find the right contractor to help you locate materials.
Hanging Pot Racks
As mentioned before, small kitchens pose somewhat of a challenge for homeowners, but there are still great, cost-effective ways to maximize space and efficiency without costing a fortune. One of the most highly underrated kitchen accessories that will improve your home value is a hanging pot rack. Not only are pot racks decorative and customizable, but they are highly functional for smaller spaces. You can free up plenty of cabinet space when you utilize hanging pot racks, which can greatly improve the value of your kitchen and home. Furthermore, there will be no more bending over and digging for pots and pans in low cabinets.
Another more recently popular kitchen upgrade is installing a pot-filler. A pot-filler may require some light plumbing work, but in the end it will be worth the install. The convenience of having a water line right on your stove where you can fill a pot easily without hauling the heavy pot back and forth between the sink is a great way to impress buyers and increase the ease of cooking in your kitchen. If there is room in the budget, this is a great way to enhance the appeal of your kitchen for prospective buyers, and will add an elegant touch to any kitchen space.
