The Fun Extras You Should Consider for Your Denver Kitchen Remodeling Project

August 22, 2018

If you are planning your Denver kitchen remodeling project, you might have already made decisions on a new layout for your kitchen. Perhaps you are investing in new natural stone countertops and custom-made kitchen cabinetry. But what about the fun little extras that can really take you kitchen from so-so to spectacular? Read on for some ideas.

Utensil Racks

Utensil racks offer a practical feature that can really personalize your kitchen. You can hang up pots and pans with a beautiful copper pot rack. Or you can install a utensil rack below the cabinets to keep frequently used kitchen tools and knives within easy reach. Take a look at some of utensil racks and other creative storage pieces you can find at Ikea that will save you money—and space in your kitchen.

Kitchen Island

Islands are one of the most popular features of kitchens these days—and for good reason. Not only do they provide extra counter space for cooking and baking, but they can also be used as a gathering place for friends and family. When you design your island with an overhang, you can add seating with barstools.

Double Ovens

Remember last Thanksgiving when the mashed potatoes were already cold by the time the turkey came out of the oven? Well, say goodbye to that problem with double ovens. With double ovens, you can be baking in one oven and use the second oven to keep other food items warm—or be baking a pie. This convenient option for a kitchen has been seen in high-end kitchens for years, and it is a design feature that will certainly stand the test of time. Looking for other ideas that won’t go out of style? Don’t miss our recent blog post: Denver Kitchen Remodeling Trends That Will Stand the Test of Time.

Pot Filler

If you love pasta, why not invest in a pot filler? It’s usually mounted high enough on the kitchen backsplash to make it easy to fill even the biggest pot for soup or pasta. It’s convenient—and it adds a high-end look to your kitchen.

Countertop Garage

Do you have a large Kitchenaid mixer that looks a bit unwieldly on the countertop out in the open? Now you can have a “garage” custom-built into your cabinets to store this type of equipment. It’s still easily accessible because you just open the garage door and slide it out whenever you want to access it.

Coffee Bar

If you love coffee, why not pick an alcove in your new kitchen to put in a coffee bar? Think of all the money you can save over the long run by having your own place to make coffee, espresso, or lattes. You can keep all the condiments and coffee cups above or below the area. You might even consider putting in a small microwave and mini fridge to keep things convenient and out of the way of the main part of the kitchen.
