— Kitchen up­grades can seem daunt­ing. From full ren­o­va­tions to hard­ware up­dates, the pos­si­bil­i­ties are end­less when it comes to cre­at­ing your dream kitchen. To make the process as smooth as pos­si­ble, Delta Faucet com­piled key tips to keep in mind as you em­bark on the re­mod­el­ing jour­ney. These quick guide­lines will help you fo­cus on the end re­sult and en­sure the over­all ex­pe­ri­ence is en­joy­able. Stor­age so­lu­tions De­ter­mine stor­age needs based on how you work. Take in­ven­tory of kitchen tools and ac­ces­sories to de­ter­mine your path for­ward. For ex­am­ple, in­stall a cabi­net near the stove specif­i­cally tai­lored for pots and pans, or add a nar­row cabi­net by the oven to house cookie sheets and trays within easy reach. If you rarely use your food pro­ces­sor or slow cooker, choose a cabi­net out of the way to guar­an­tee stor­age space for the items


you will need to ac­cess more read­ily. Plan a des­ig­nated place for ev­ery kitchen uten­sil and ap­pli­ance to avoid messy draw­ers and clut­tered cab­i­nets. An is­land for your needs A mul­ti­func­tional is­land de­liv­ers ad­di­tional stor­age and prep space to al­most any kitchen. Cus­tomize your is­land area based on your cook­ing and en­ter­tain­ing style. Make the most out of the space to fit your needs. Avid cooks who pre­pare many big meals might con­sider in­clud­ing a prep sink for rins­ing fruits and veg­eta­bles. Con­versely, those who love to en­ter­tain can use the is­land to add counter space for hors d’oeu­vres and ac­com­mo­date bar stools. Faucet func­tion­al­ity Few peo­ple en­joy rins­ing messy dishes, but the proper faucet can make this chore easy and care­free. Blend­ing de­sign and func­tion­al­ity, the Delta Ma­teo Kitchen Faucet with optional Touch2O Tech­nol­ogy is an ideal choice for any kitchen re­design. Touch2O Tech­nol­ogy with the Tem­pSense sys­tem al­lows the faucet to be turned on and off with just a touch, sim­pli­fy­ing kitchen tasks dur­ing food prep and clean-up. An LED light at the base of the faucet changes color from blue to red to alert users to the wa­ter’s tem­per­a­ture and avoid sur­prises. Beyond in­no­va­tive tech­nol­ogy, the faucet’s tran­si­tional de­sign — in­spired by the Ital­ian coun­try­side — works well with a va­ri­ety of style pref­er­ences, cre­at­ing a beau­ti­ful kitchen fo­cal point.

Quick and easy de­sign up­grades

When de­sign­ing the kitchen of your dreams, take into con­sid­er­a­tion that tastes and styles are ever evolv­ing. Peel-and-stick back­splashes are bud­get-friendly as well as quick and easy to in­stall. If your fa­vorite fin­ish or pat­tern pref­er­ence changes in a few years, sim­ply re­place with a new de­sign for an ap­peal­ing re­fresh.

Take the time to plan ap­pro­pri­ately with these four tips in mind and you will cre­ate a space per­fectly tai­lored to all your kitchen needs. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit deltafaucet.com.
