Let’s Get Cooking!
Probably one of the easiest upgrades you can do is replace your oven or stove. There are several models that are very popular for home remodeling in Atlanta. Commercial ovens, made famous by some of your favorite television cooking shows, are all the rage right now. They offer that rugged, stainless steel look but with more eyes than a traditional range and a higher BTU range. Island cooktops are especially helpful for the cook who loves entertaining and wants to get the whole family involved.
No matter how big your kitchen, there just never seems to be enough room. Corner cabinets can be especially tricky when it comes to maneuvering pots and pans, but with a built-in lazy Susan, organizing your cookware just got a whole lot easier. Deeper drawers are also great for storing bakeware and small appliances while full extension drawers are perfect for holding all your dishes and fine china.
The perfect lighting can set the mood for any occasion. Pendant style lighting over a kitchen island controlled with a dimmer is great for parties and while also coming in a variety of colors and styles. Recessed lighting under or on top of cabinetry provides soft ambiance for intimate dinners and midnight snacking. Start your day off right with the perfect cup brewed in your own specialty coffee bar. That small niche in your kitchen can easily become your morning brewing station or just as easily converted into a wet bar for evening cocktails. Don’t forget the under-the-counter warming drawer to keep your hors o’devours and dinner rolls ready for company.
When there are too many cooks in the kitchen, a second sink built into your kitchen island is great for washing vegetables and food prep. High-mounted and extended-reach faucets, also known as pot fillers, are a modern essential especially for big families who love big meals. Trade in your old dishwasher for the latest built-in dishwasher drawers. You heard right. Finally, there is a dishwasher that can be seamlessly built into your new or existing cabinetry with options for half loads and full loads. These new models not only save you time on chores but money on your water bill as well because they are more efficient.
A licensed residential general contractor can easily, and professionally, install any of these amazing fixtures into your home. There are literally endless possibilities for your remodeling project. Let the Atlanta contractors at Aboud Inc. help you plan your ultimate kitchen makeover.
