4 Considerations When Remodeling Your Kitchen

4 Considerations When Remodeling Your Kitchen jim amos contracting

A well-planned kitchen remodeling project can give you the kitchen of your dreams.

Have you ever wished that your kitchen looked a little different? In that case, the solution could come in the form of a well-planned kitchen remodeling project. Universal design is one aspect that you should consider, and then keep ADA guidelines in mind. Safety, accessibility, and aesthetic designs are all crucial elements of a long-lasting home. So, what can you do to make all of this happen? We have some suggestions.


Put in a Pullout Pantry 

One of the first things you should do is to place a pullout pantry. Pullout pantries are so amazing because you don’t need to rummage around to find what you need. Everything is conveniently visible. This configuration means you won’t have to worry about crouching down and balancing yourself on your knees. That position can hurt your knees and your back, which will, in turn, leave you feeling miserable. Now that’s not very conducive to cooking! You can also use these pantries to store blenders, slow cookers, and coffee makers when you don’t need them. 

Rethink Your Microwave Placement

We recommend that you pick somewhere else for the microwave to go. Although it’s easy to assume that all microwaves are built-in, that’s not the case. Sometimes they are standalone appliances set up on a cart in an alcove between the kitchen and the dining room. It all depends on the amount of space you have and what the floor plan of your house is. In any case, make sure the microwave is set up at around counter height. Doing this reduces the chances of bending and straining as you put food in or take food out. Likewise, it diminishes the chances of unpleasant spills that create gigantic messes.  

Reduce Corner Cabinet Reach Problems 

Corner cabinets are wonderful elements of kitchen design. Unfortunately, they might be underappreciated and not utilized to their full potential without a thoughtful approach to remodeling. One way to resolve that problem is by making them more readily accessible. Consider adding a lazy Susan slide-out shelves and drawers. All of these options decrease the need for that dreaded bend-reach-lift routine. 

Select Easy-to-Open Drawers

Drawers and doors are mundane mechanisms that we find all over the house. They’re so common that you’ve probably never thought about how inconvenient they can sometimes be. That’s why it’s so important to choose easy-to-open drawers. As with the pullout pantries, this design choice makes your life so much easier!
