Kitchen RemodelingYou’ve decided to go all out with your kitchen remodel and create a chef’s kitchen that will be the envy of all your friends and family. You have lofty dreams of creating culinary masterpieces and hosting countless parties in your home. You need a kitchen that can get the job done. As you work with our design team at Booher Remodeling Company, be sure you consider including these elements in your chef’s kitchen.

1. High-end appliances

When you think of a chef’s kitchen, you probably automatically think of that extra wide, professional-grade refrigerator, an induction cooktop, or deluxe side-by-side double oven. You definitely want to invest in your appliances if you’re upgrading to a chef’s kitchen, so make your list of must-haves, and be sure to research reputable brands. Side note: When remodeling your kitchen, pick out your appliances early on. That way, your home designer and contractor knows the dimensions of each appliance so they can plan the remaining layout around those items.

2. Extra refrigeration or freezer space

If you’re installing a chef’s kitchen, we’ll assume that you cook often. To have space for all your food (and those delicious leftovers), you will want to have plenty of refrigeration space and perhaps an extra freezer. Many people keep a deep freezer in their garage or opt to get a extra-wide refrigerator that already has extra space built in.

3. Food prep area

A designated food preparation area is a must-have for the aspiring chef. Make sure your food prep area includes (or at least has easy access to) a washing station, cutlery, chopping board, and storage space for all your measuring cups, pans, and so on. Many people use their kitchen island as the food prep area, selecting countertops that can double as cutting boards and that can easily withstand the rigors of food prep.

4. Ultimate storage space

When you have a chef’s kitchen, you’ll need the chef’s tools. Therefore, make sure you plan on including plenty of organized storage options for your pots, pans, utensils, serving dishes, and small appliances—not to mention plenty of space for pantry items and baking supplies.

5. Deep kitchen sink

A standard sink can fill up fast when you’re using a lot of pots and pans. However, if you install a deep kitchen sink, you’ll have plenty of space for all your supplies to be washed or to fill up your pans with water. We recommend that you consider a stainless steel sink for its durability, modern style, and longevity. Want to find out more about remodeling your kitchen into a chef’s dream?
