Modern Kitchen Design Must Haves - What You Need to Include in Your Design

Those spacious and modern kitchens that we often see in Pinterest look like a dream. And of course, we all want to have those functional and stylish designs. Afterall, the kitchen is one of the most important and commonly used rooms inside our homes.

Whether you want to do-it-yourself or hire a contractor to do some minor or major renovations, here are the things that you should have in your modern kitchen.

Custom Cabinets That Fit Your Space

Not all kitchens are created equal - some are spacious, some are tiny, and some are unevenly shaped. Make the most out of your space by using smart storage. Create your own custom cabinets that specifically fit your kitchen perfectly.

When creating custom cabinets, here are some things you may want to consider:

  • Pull out spice racks

  • Drawer dividers and separators

  • Slide down cabinets for your kitchen appliances

  • No-slam cabinets

  • Deep sliding cabinets for pots and pans

  • Cabinets built around appliances

Create a Walk-In Pantry

If you’re planning for a kitchen remodel, having a walk-in pantry is non-negotiable. No matter how small or big your home is, you need to have a space for your food and other supplies.

Make sure your walk-in pantry has a lot of shelves and cabinets so you can store as much as you can. Here are some ideas for your walk-in pantry:

  • Shelves for Spices

  • Cabinets for larger cooking tools like pressure cookers, slow cookers, griddles, and more.

  • In-pantry fridge for beverages like beer, pop, and juice.

  • Accessibility to basic cooking needs

  • A space for your pet food or a feeding area

A Custom and Optimized Kitchen Layout Specifically For Your Needs

Every kitchen is different, so when you’re planning for a revamp, you need to think about your needs, your routine, and how you want to use this room. Sure, we all love something aesthetic but we also need to consider the functionality of each and every design.

Plan how your kitchen layout can make your events and daily tasks simpler. Here are some things you can consider:

  • Easy access to the fridge

  • Additional counter space (Perfect for meal prep)

  • Double wide sink

  • Expanded Dishwasher

  • Added seating space

  • Large windows for natural light

  • Kitchenette nooks

  • Open entryway
