What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think about the holidays?
Family and food.
Food is the pinnacle of every holiday gathering. The kitchen is occupied – often by more than one person at a time – frantically mashing potatoes, checking the temperature of the turkey, and topping off your Uncle Jerry’s champagne. Meanwhile, you are bumping elbows with your mother and your sister because the island countertop is just a little too close to the oven. You attempt to grab a pan from the cabinet, conveniently located in the corner next to the refrigerator, where both can not be opened at the same time. All of this toil and trouble while the children laugh and yell in the other room.
We are all familiar with this type of situation. The holidays are a time of chaos and peace. Mitigating these stressful moments in the kitchen is as easy as hiring a kitchen remodeler. A kitchen remodel can be your holiday gift to yourself and your family for years to come!
Every family home is different, with each resident with individual needs. Do you need new wood floors to cover the old sauce-stained linoleum? How about sturdy cabinet handles with a brushed metallic flair? What about kitchen appliances to match your cooking level or a better functioning kitchen island for food preparation?
Simple, yet necessary changes to a kitchen can bring some peace back into your home. If that island countertop was just one more foot away from the oven, or if the refrigerator could be moved so the door doesn’t intersect with a cabinet, these are the changes that can make all of the difference. A real open concept kitchen can breathe new life into your home. A kitchen is more than a place to prepare food, it’s a gathering place, a place to teach your kids how to make their first holiday cookies, a place to share vintage wines with your best friends, a place to make holiday meals with your favorite people, without bumping elbows. Here are some examples of what Varian Construction can do for you!
Out with the old and in with the new. Kitchen fixtures can make or break the look of your new kitchen. Deciding what to choose is no easy feat, that is why we compiled a list of popular kitchen fixtures in 2021.
- Sleek metallic or black handles on cabinets. Bar handles are preferred over knobs due to their increased accessibility and sturdiness.
- Touchless kitchen faucets to keep your sink looking clean and new.
- Flexible kitchen faucet head, bring the water to the plates, not the plates to the water!
- A Larger kitchen sink. Sometimes we forget that appliances showcase the beautiful cabinetry work of a kitchen! A larger kitchen sink would be perfect for all of your holiday platters and dishes. A custom-built countertop will allow for this.
If you can get away with it, a kitchen island should be no less than 3-4 feet away from the cooking station of the kitchen, kitchen sink, or oven. People who prepare the food will appreciate some extra breathing room, especially when you’re rushing to see if your turkey is up to temp. There should always be ample space for multiple people to walk around the kitchen especially during the holiday season when multiple dishes are being served.
When you’re in a rush to get your holiday dishes completed, some automatic closing drawers would be a great choice to include in a kitchen remodel. The lifespan of your drawers will bring value to your home and keep unnecessary equipment out of the way when you’re moving about the space.
A finicky spice cabinet is the last thing you need when seasoning your Thanksgiving yams. Instead of the traditional spice rack, keep those spices stored properly by having a custom vertical pull-out drawer by the refrigerator. This keeps your spices organized and out of the way while you prepare your favorite dishes.
Last but not least, you will want a kitchen island. Preferably with storage and items you can show off to your guests. A kitchen island is the centerpiece of any functional kitchen. It is a place to eat, prepare food, display your decorative fruits, and show off your hard-earned copper pans and dishware. Installing an island creates a functional space for guests and cooks alike, an open inviting environment that inspires collaboration and fun into your kitchen!
