Turn kitchen time into qual­ity time

The Progress-Index - At Home - - NEWS -

If you’re con­sid­er­ing a kitchen ren­o­va­tion, keep in mind the value of up­grades that will en­hance the ef­fi­ciency, prac­ti­cal­ity and beauty of the space. Here are three key kitchen up­grades that can el­e­vate the ap­peal of your kitchen:

Im­proved nat­u­ral light­ing: If your kitchen is small and dark, it can feel dingy and tired, no mat­ter how new your ap­pli­ances or shiny your gran­ite coun­ter­tops. Con­sider adding nat­u­ral light sources such as sky­lights and roof win­dows. Not only can th­ese nat­u­ral light sources im­prove the feel of your kitchen, they can de­crease the need for ar­ti­fi­cial light­ing.

Up­graded fix­tures: Re­plac­ing a ba­sic, dated faucet and swap­ping out an older sink can have a sig­nif­i­cant im­pact on the over­all look and util­ity of a kitchen — for a frac­tion of the cost of grander ren­o­va­tions. It’s pos­si­ble to find new sinks that fit vir­tu­ally any de­sign taste. Stain­less steel pro­vides a sleek, mod­ern look while de­liv­er­ing out­stand­ing dura­bil­ity.

En­ergy-ef­fi­cient ap­pli­ances: Ap­pli­ances are a kitchen el­e­ment well worth a lit­tle ex­tra in­vest­ment, and im­prov­ing the ef­fi­ciency of th­ese ap­pli­ances can both el­e­vate your en­joy­ment of the kitchen and save you some money. Re­plac­ing older ap­pli­ances with newer, more en­er­gy­ef­fi­cient mod­els can re­duce your en­ergy costs.
