4 Kitchen Must-Haves That You May Not Have Considered

The kitchen is the heart of your home. It’s where most families spend most of their time, and it’s the room that potential buyers rush into first during open houses. When you are planning for your kitchen renovation make sure your kitchen contains these must-haves.

The kitchen is the heart of most people’s homes.

Anti-Fatigue Mats – Your Feet will Thank You

As discussed in the article “7 Reasons Why Anti-Fatigue Mats Deserve a Place in Your Home,” anti-fatigue mats take stress off the legs and feet for people who are standing on hard surfaces. Because of the nature of kitchens and the frequent cleaning required, kitchen floors are hard – which means you can benefit from a mat.

Every Kitchen Needs an Island

If you’re buying a new home, put a kitchen island on your must-have list. If you’re renovating, make an island first on your list. Kitchen islands improve functionality, provide storage and are aesthetically awesome, as they make your kitchen look wide and open.

Magnetic Chalkboard Wall

You can make your own magnetic chalkboard wall – and your kitchen will never be the same again. Scratch out ideas and adjustments to recipes you have stuck to the wall with magnets. Turn it into a to-do list when it’s not in use. Do you have kids? They’re going to love it – and it will keep them so occupied that they’ll finally keep their hands out of the sauce.

Chef’s Knife

The single, but most often overlooked item in any kitchen is a good chef’s knife. It’s better to have one good knife than an entire set of mediocre cutlery. You may also get a paring knife and a utility knife, but a classic, traditional 8-inch chef’s knife will handle most jobs you do. Get one good knife and get good at using it.

A decked-out kitchen will be the center of the entire house.

If you can only put money, time and energy into one room, make it the kitchen. It should be comfortable to work in and eat in, and it should be functional and aesthetically pleasing, as well. Take tame to make your kitchen great, and it will be the one room you’ll never want to leave.
