It’s easy to imagine a gourmet kitchen equipped with the high-end gadgetry. But the truth is, you can have a gourmet kitchen of your own just by choosing the right set of features. In today’s post, local kitchen and bathroom remodeling company Evergreen Renovations & Roofing shares the must-have features of a gourmet kitchen.
1. Custom Countertops — Your gourmet kitchen should serve your strengths as a chef or home cook. If you do a lot of baking, this means you need a countertop that has enough space and can withstand a lot of kneading. If you make your own pasta, you need a countertop that will let you install a clamp for a pasta maker. Gourmet kitchens that serve a bigger-than-average household will need large countertops that will allow multiple cooks to work at the same time.
2. Large Ventilation System — The ventilation system should match the kitchen’s size. Multiple stovetops release a lot of heat, steam and smoke, all of which you don’t want accumulating in your kitchen. Your kitchen remodeling plans should include plans on integrating powerful range hoods into the kitchen design using panels that match the rest of the cabinetry. Custom panels can be designed in such a way that they can be removed for easy cleaning and maintenance.
3. Stovetop Faucets — Filling large stock pots with water and lifting them to the stovetop can take some heavy lifting. A stovetop faucet makes it easy to fill large stock pots while on the stovetop. It can also provide hot water on demand, which can help you save time cooking. Note that stovetop faucets may require new plumbing.
4. Custom Storage — Gourmet kitchens need plenty of storage. In addition to spacious cabinets, you will also need custom storage like roll-out storage that can function as a spice rack, knife storage, or cooking utensils. Custom storage solutions make efficient use of narrow spaces and helps reduce clutter in the kitchen.
