My mother shows love and hospitality through cooking. Beyond entertaining family and friend, she organizes dinners for non-profits. Every Christmas she buys boxes of apples, peels them, and bakes up to 100 pies for charity fundraisers. For her birthday, my sisters and I treated her to the movie, Julie & Julia. She loved it, as did we. It has inspired so many to take the love of food preparation to another level! The impact of portraying Julia Child’s passion for creating good tasting food had Mastering the Art of French Cooking flying off the shelves. It became #1 on the New York Time’s Best Seller List 48 years after publication! Right after the movie, my sister bought a dress to host her own Julia Child themed dinner party.
Is it time for you to have the kitchen you love to cook and entertain in?
October is National Kitchen and Bath Month, a popular time of year for kitchen remodeling and bathroom remodeling to make the home seem new again. People especially love to showcase their kitchen, and trained home remodeling professionals can offer creative design solutions for every need and every budget. Our Pinterest Best of Kitchen boards illustrate that there are many ways to have a beautiful and unique to you kitchen.
Perhaps you are ready to redesign your kitchen for more space and storage. Do you have frameless cabinets that offer more drawer space? Do you have the right size refrigerator for your needs? Do you have an island that can provide more countertop space for food preparation, lots of storage, and ease in serving buffet style? It can also be an informal dining spot.
Are you a multi-cook family and you need two sinks? Or you love to entertain and need a speed oven, a warming drawer, and under the counter beverage center? A butlers pantry with a second dishwasher or walk in pantry?
How are the ergonomics of your kitchen? A cookie cutter kitchen in a typical home doesn’t have a lower countertop for rolling out dough! Many homeowners prefer to have ovens, or the dishwasher at a higher height. Do the bottom cabinet shelves roll out?
Do you have sufficent and efficient lighting? Does it create the ambiance you want, that you can dim the task lighting for the kitchen countertops when its time to dine?
There are lots of kitchen remodeling design details for those who have pets, who garden, juice, or like to cook pizzas, use a griddle to name a few. An experienced kitchen remodeling professional will be able to incorporate those needs into the kitchen remodeling design for a clutter free, functional and fabulous kitchen.
You know what you want–do not want to lose another day of enjoying the kitchen of your dreams!
Happy Home Remodeling!
