Design feature ideas for your next kitchen reno

Every good kitchen renovation must have an eye-catching feature that pulls the entire look together. That may be the counter, tiles, cabinets, or something unique. As the heart of any home, giving your kitchen that “wow” factor will boost both its value and lifestyle enjoyment.

Artifex Custom Contracting in Winnipeg is a professional general contracting company. They share some custom kitchen feature ideas for your next renovation:

Not just a simple island

Kitchen islands are a standard in many modern kitchen layouts, but it doesn’t just have to be an island. Doubling, or even tripling, its purpose will add a multifunctional addition that can’t be beaten. Extend the countertop for more space to prep food, but also gather for socializing or meals. Add shelving and storage beneath the countertop to store baking supplies, dishes, or bulky cooking utensils. You can even install appliances in the island, or something special like a wine fridge. There are many possibilities, so start by prioritizing what will benefit your lifestyle the most.

Built-in refrigerator 

The built-in look is a perfect way to blend elements and save some space, especially with bulky appliances. Most refrigerators sit on their own or at the end of the kitchen area, making them stand out. However, if your cabinets are the main focal point of your kitchen, then keep that look by hiding the refrigerator. Shallow-designed fridges sit flush against the wall while still opening and functioning just as well. Custom-built panels as a cover will create the illusion of seamless cabinetry. The final appearance is modern, sleek, trendy, and highly aesthetic.

Walk-in pantry

Instead of building or allocating storage for spices, bulk items, and other less-used items, build a walk-in pantry. As a custom design, there is no limit on the space, layout, or storage additions. Just customize the layout to your specific needs and lifestyle goals. Storing lesser-used cooking ingredients or bulky countertop appliances is a great way to free up space in the rest of your kitchen. If you need ideas, browse online, or talk to your general contractor for help. They’ll be able to maximize the space in your kitchen and design a perfect walk-in pantry for your specific layout and design plan.

Coffee and tea bar

Sometimes it’s the little additions that add the most eye-catching appeal, especially in a kitchen. In addition to your main kitchen island, build a small mini bar to store all your hot drink appliances. Place coffee machines and tea kettles on the counter and build custom drawers or cupboards for all the teas and coffees. Not only is it a visually unique addition, but it’s also highly functional. You’ll never have to search for your mugs again, and it frees the rest of your counters of small-appliance clutter.
