Is your kitchen in need of some updating?

You know it’s time for a kitchen remodel when you can’t stand being in there longer than you need to. So, when it’s finally time to plan your dream kitchen, it’s important to consider your budget and what you want to achieve.

Do you need more lighting? More storage space? Does your oven hail from the 1950s?

If you need some design inspiration, check out our seven must-have kitchen features to turn your kitchen from drab to fab.

1. Better Lighting

There’s nothing worse than a dark, dreary kitchen. Bring your kitchen back to life with good lighting and create a warm and inviting space for you and your guests. From pendant to wall-mounted, and fans to lamps, there’s a huge range to suit your needs.


2. Tiled Backsplash

A tiled backsplash allows you to create visual interest in your kitchen. It’s an inexpensive option available in a range of textures and patterns. They’re also easy to install, clean, and maintain.

For a classic backsplash that never goes out of style, choose a subway tile.

3. Wall Ovens

Is your oven in desperate need of an upgrade? Consider buying a wall oven. Whether you’re a baker or a home cook, a wall oven provides easy access, seamless design, and versatility.

4. Built-in Refrigerators

Built-in refrigerators visually enhance the design of your kitchen. This results in a cleaner, high-end appearance. And as a bonus, most new refrigerators are energy-star certified and will save you on your next utility bill.

5. Farm Sink

Farm sinks are deeper, wider, and perfect for those with larger families or those who like to entertain. Choose from a range of traditional bridge-style kitchen faucets to complement the rustic look of the farmhouse sink.

6. Custom Cabinets

The more kitchen cabinets, the better. When you remodel, you can decide how much storage you want and what color you want them. You may want to consider building custom cabinets around your appliances and deeper drawers to store your pots and pans.

7. Custom Countertops

More often than not, homeowners opt for an open-layout kitchen to create an ideal social atmosphere. To enhance your space, ensure you have multiple countertop spaces.

To achieve this, you may opt for a multifunctional kitchen island that provides additional storage space, casual seating, and a great focal point.
