At Prince & Sons, we focus our business model around the renovation of kitchens more than any other area of the home. This is for a variety of different reasons, but primarily because it is the focal point of the home and there are countless ways to integrate function with aesthetics. In this blog we will highlight some of those, starting with these six kitchen updates.
Pot fillers (small faucet on an extendable arm that swings out over the cooktop) make filling pots easier with less heavy lifting and spillage. They are an excellent choice for large kitchens because they provide a water source at cooktop location. Choose from a variety of metallic finishes to match your sink and appliances or consider a black and white color to add contrasting, contemporary appeal.
Solid surface countertops are the epitome of style and function. The durability of granite and quartz is unmatched, and any look is achievable with the wide variety of styles between both granite and quartz. While quartz and granite have a few different qualities between the two, either are exceptional options to consider when designing your kitchen.
Touchless, or motion censored, faucets eliminate the need to manually switch taps on and off as you work in your kitchen. This feature has many benefits including increased efficiency during meal preparation and clean-up as well as maintaining a sanitary work space. Since we know that touching anything with your hands spreads germs, eliminating hand contact at the source will prevent cross-contamination and viruses from spreading between family members. Aesthetically, touchless faucets make kitchens more stylish and high tech.
Adding a backsplash behind your sink or stove is a great way to create more depth and texture in your kitchen. A properly installed backsplash is more durable, eye-catching, and interesting than paint textures alone. If you choose materials such as glass, ceramic, marble, or smooth metal, you will also find it easier to clean up splashes and spilled grease.
Even the most organized homeowners occasionally forget where items are stored in their kitchen cabinets – especially if they don’t use the item frequently. Installing glass kitchen cabinet doors can help you see what’s inside at a glance, but it also gives kitchens a lighter, more open feel.
