Having enough kitchen storage is a dream for many homeowners. The dream can become a reality with a knowledgeable kitchen renovation contractor.
Start With The Pantry
A walk in pantry is wonderful, but make sure the entire pantry is being utilized. Add pull out racks for cans, even double stacking racks if the space between shelves is ten inches or more. In fact, the pulling out racks can be extremely efficient in storing food boxes, chips, crackers, drinks and cooking staples. Should the pantry have a wall without shelving, use that space to add spice racks.
Small kitchens can be challenging, but your kitchen is a powerful statement about who you are. You’ll need to make tons of choices that will impact how you live your daily life when you remodel. Here are some items you may want to look at which will give your small kitchen a deeply customized look and have all your guests drooling.
The great thing about a faucet is that no matter that kind you chose, it would take up basically the same amount of space. So even the smallest of kitchens can use the same beautiful faucets as large kitchens. There are so many different styles to choose from industrial/restaurant chic to downhome farmhouse. You can have a single handle, 2 handles or go handleless. The finish can give your faucet a total custom look, such as an oiled rubbed bronze or brushed nickel.
One of the major decisions in a kitchen remodel is the counter material and style.

Different styles exist to cater for differing personal tastes and kitchen environments.
A job worth doing is worth doing well. That’s why when planning a home renovation, bring in a professional.

The problem is, some weekend warriors believe they can do that, and more. So when all is said and done, the cost of the home renovation has skyrocketed; no permits were pulled, the wrong materials have been purchased. The renovation is amateurishly completed so the work must also be ripped out and started all over before the house can be sold. Creating a bigger and more complicated job than originally intended.
