If you have looked at kitchen cabinets for any amount of time, you’re very much aware of the myriad of options that are available. From wood species to paint, stain, and glaze finishes, your choices can seem endless. Lest you think your decisions are confined only to the cabinet’s exterior, here are just a few examples of what can be done inside your cabinets.
Tilt-Out Sink Trays take the drawer front and transform it into storage that is not only convenient but also out of sight. Small items such as jewelry are kept safe in these trays while items such as soap and scouring pads stay close by for use and hidden when not needed.
Spice Racks incorporated into a kitchen design can eliminate the jumbled mess that often occurs when numerous bottles of spices inhabit one cabinet, saving you time and frustration during meal prep. They are available in different forms, including simple drawer inserts, shelves on the back of cabinet doors, and dedicated cabinets. They can also be hidden behind decorative molding or legs.
Waste Basket Kits keep the trash can hidden in a base cabinet, allowing a cleaner look in your kitchen. Multiple bins can be included for purposes such as recycling or housing soiled kitchen linens.
There are a variety of Cutlery and Drawer Organizer Trays available in numerous sizes and designs. Some are even designed to protect valuable silverware or provide safe storage for sharp knives.
Vertical Tray Dividers create partitions for items such as cookie sheets, serving trays, and baking pans. Not only does this make storage more convenient, but retrieving them when needed is much easier.
The options do not end here. Whether it be an Appliance Garage that provides out-of-sight storage for small countertop appliances, Rollout Trays that maximize the storage space in your base cabinets, or a Lazy Susan that allows for easy access of dishes or pantry items, there is no shortage of ways to fit your cabinets to your needs, giving them that personal touch.
Stop in at our Carmel, Indiana showroom and let our designers show how to get the most out of your new cabinets.
We don’t often think about the kitchen sink in terms of anything glamorous. After all, its purpose is almost entirely utilitarian. It washes everything from dirty dishes to dirty hands. You may use your sink for basic things, but that doesn’t mean the sink itself has to be basic. Today’s kitchen sinks are created to not only look appealing but also make your time in the kitchen more enjoyable. With options in accessories and sizes, your sink can have its own sense of style.
More than just a basin for piling dirty dishes, today’s sinks offer a variety of convenient options for the busy homeowner. Custom cutting boards made to fit inside the sink offer a place to prep veggies and fruit near the sink, making clean up quick and concise.
Looking for a way to keep everything handy AND save space? Some sinks offer accessories where everything from your soap dish to your utensil holder can attach anywhere on the basin.
Metal grids made for the bottom of the sink not only give produce a resting place while washing but also protect the sink from the scratches or scuffs of pots and pans.
There are sinks available with a built in knife block and a cubby for larger kitchen utensils, such as spatulas. Other options include hanging racks for dish clothes and sponges as well as built in colanders.
Besides the various accessories, the size and shape of your sink can be personalized for your kitchen needs. The more standard double bowl sink is still very popular and quite practical in some kitchens.
Other kitchens are ideal for a larger deep basin sink or perhaps an apron front sink, which looks right at home in both traditional and contemporary settings. If countertop space permits, some may prefer a three-bowl, multi-depth chef sink. Before deciding, consider the size of your kitchen as well as how you will be using your sink. A large sink might be overwhelming in a small kitchen. Also, if you primarily use a dishwasher and only wash occasional dishes, a single bowl would likely be a better choice for you as opposed to someone who hand washes most of their dishes. They would benefit better from a double bowl sink.
There are many decisions throughout the kitchen remodeling process, including choices regarding the kitchen sink. Let The KitchenWright's designers help you navigate these options to make the best decision for your home. Give us a call at 317-848-1111 or stop in our Carmel Indiana showroom.
In many areas of life, we tend to think in terms of the here and now. This is often evident in the areas of buying, building, or remodeling a home. We seek out design elements that are representative of our current stage of life. Life, as we know, is fluid and ever changing. Our situation today may not be our situation tomorrow. That is where Universal Design comes in.
Popularized by architect Ronald Mace, Universal Design is the idea of taking a space, then designing it in such a way that it is functional and practical for all age groups, ability levels, and life stages. With Universal Design, you are designing your home so that it not only works for you today, but also in the future. You are planning with tomorrow in mind.
Universal Design does not need to be clinical or institutional-like in appearance, nor should it be. When implemented correctly, its features will flow smoothly into the overall design of the house, almost to the point of not noticing them. There are a number of areas within the kitchen where you can implement Universal Design and demonstrate that functionality can also be stylish.
Other ideas in Universal Design include lowering light switches, using slip resistant flooring such as cork or ceramic tile, and widening doorways to 36”.
Universal Design is all about making sure your home will be as perfect for you in the future as it is today. Implementing this concept in your home design or remodeling project will help ensure your kitchen remains both functional and enjoyable whatever the future may hold. Stop in to The KitchenWright in Carmel, Indiana showroom and let us help in designing an accessible space for you.
"I am in love with my new kitchen and The KitchenWright played a huge part in that. I had specific ideas and they educated me and made it happen. They knew what I wanted and seamlessly made decisions based on that. I've had other contractors try to pass things by on me, thinking I wouldn't know the difference, but in this case they anticipated issues and fixed them before they were permanent. They were a delight to work with. My kitchen even made the Facebook page! Thanks for making this a great experience!"
"Thanks so much for your help and input! We love our “refreshed” kitchen now. I really enjoyed working with you and have already given your card to a friend!"
"They did a fabulous job. They were real professionals, it was the type of job that I could leave them alone and not worry about my house."
