Undertaking a kitchen remodeling project is both exciting and overwhelming. There are a myriad of decisions to be made with regard to layout, color palettes, materials, appliances, and more. Don’t embark on this journey alone. Instead, allow the home design team at Tom’s Best Quality Remodeling to guide you through the process. Here are some of the most commonly requested kitchen design features you should consider:

Kitchen Design Features

1. Islands

Kitchen islands top the charts as the most commonly requested kitchen design feature. If you have a spacious kitchen, a large island is a major perk: it increases counter space and provides extra storage, in-kitchen dining, and more. Homeowners with smaller kitchens, however, are not left out of the equation. In fact, long, narrow islands suit a galley kitchen quite nicely. Similarly, small center islands create a bit of extra storage and workspace while maintaining clear walkways.

2. Large, Single-Basin Sinks

Small, two-compartment sinks are virtually a thing of the past. Nowadays, virtually every kitchen remodeling client requests a large, single-basin sink. Whether you prefer a recessed or apron sink is entirely your choice. The main takeaway here is that homeowners are tired of struggling to wash large pots and pans in a tiny sink.

3. Lots of Counter Space

If the primary goal of the kitchen is food preparation, then homeowners must prioritize food preparation space. While prep space was traditionally located immediately next to the sink, today’s homeowners are asking for more. Many clients prefer to have two separate prep areas. This can be accomplished through the inclusion of a peninsula and uncluttered counters. 

4. Storage Space

Similarly, homeowners also want more storage space. While not every kitchen has room for a walk-in pantry, there are plenty of other storage options available. For example, our kitchen remodeling contractors can transform an existing closet into a pantry. Likewise, we can incorporate roll-out shelves, drawer storage accessories, and a trash compartment, to minimize clutter and maximize counter space.
