There are a lot of things that are pretty much must-haves in a modern kitchen that you should consider as part of your kitchen renovation.
Before we continue with the article, it is important to keep in mind the cheapest way to build a kitchen is to have some boxes with doors on one shelf. However, the better way to design a kitchen is to have rollouts, including some good internal items that roll out to meet you as well.
Unfortunately, that pushes your cost up and it becomes a balancing act for all of us to decide which way we wanna go.
Efficient Kitchens Allow You To Have More
Nowadays, besides all of the internal things we can have in the kitchen such as roll-out oils and spices racks, pull out drawers, pull out tools and equipment fittings, drawers etc, you can put a drawer in the bottom of the kicker space down under the cabinets.
This is a good place for some wine bottles or platters or serving trays, that sort of thing. You can also have a lift-up door that goes up so the door is out of the way of your headspace. There’s a range of must-haves in the modern kitchen.
Whether you must have them of course is a choice between cost and efficiency. The more of these really lovely must-haves we put into our kitchen, usually the more costly we make the end result.
However, and interestingly enough, a lot happier the client ends up when they include the must-haves that may stretch the budget somewhat. I’d much rather have a client ring me up in two or three years time and say, “I’m glad we did that” than say, “Gee, I wish we had done”. I reckon the must-haves really enter that part of the equation. There are some things in the kitchen you just gotta have.
