If you are doing some kitchen remodeling, you can incorporate small design details that go a long way to make your kitchen more practical yet still appealing. Make your kitchen cozier, more functional, and more appealing with the following ideas:
Add A Built-in Kitchen Soap Dispenser
Having a dispenser makes it easier to use soap without having to deal with slippery and sudsy plastic soap containers or slimy soap bars. You can choose a design that comes with a swivel top or some similar special touches to make using the dispenser easier.
To add appeal, you can choose one that fits the interior design of your kitchen. You have several options such as stainless steel, bronze, or chrome so that the dispenser fits in beautifully with the rest of the kitchen.
Opting for granite countertops for your kitchen may have a huge trendy impact. A well-chosen built-in soap dispenser may not have a similarly big or chic impact, but it certainly adds appeal and convenience to your kitchen.
Use Under-cabinet Lighting
Under-cabinet lighting adds both functionality and appeal to your kitchen. It is an easy, practical, and inexpensive way to promote task efficiency, mood lighting, and visual depth.
Research shows that women spend a lot of time working on a variety of tasks in the kitchen. It makes sense to install under-cabinet lighting to make this particular workspace easier, safer (read: improved sanitation in terms of food preparation), and more convenient.
The use of under-cabinet light fixtures is energy-efficient, particularly if you opt to install cost-efficient LED under-cabinet lighting. You can expect to save on your energy bill — savings which you can utilize for other home design projects you may want to pursue.
Layered lighting is also gentle on the eyes. It helps eliminate the harshness and glare of overhead kitchen lights.
Under-cabinet light fixtures are easy to install. You can even install puck, tape, or linear lights yourself. You can set them up quickly and without much effort or difficulty.
In addition, under-cabinet lighting makes the kitchen look more vibrant. You can bring your kitchen to life simply by adding accent, task, or ambient under-cabinet lighting.
Opt For Soft-close Cabinets And Drawers
When you’re undergoing kitchen remodeling, one of the best decisions you can make is to install drawers and cabinets with soft-close mechanisms.
Soft-close mechanisms allow you to shut a drawer or cabinet smoothly and quietly. It eliminates irritating slamming that may cause drawers to crack and fragile items to break.
The soft-close mechanism also ensures safety, particularly for little hands that may get pinched when drawers are slammed quickly and forcefully.
Drawers and cabinets are likely to function longer with this mechanism. There is less stress on the drawer rails, as well as on the hinges and stops on kitchen doors and drawers. There is less need for expensive maintenance and/or repair.
Kitchen remodeling does not have to be expensive. There are many simple yet remarkable details that you can add to include a touch of both convenience and luxury to your kitchen.
