5 Kitchen Remodel Must-Haves

Posted on: July 8, 2016

Don’t skip out on these top five kitchen upgrades, which we recommend for every kitchen remodel. Concerned about how you will fit all of these upgrades into your budget? Bath, Kitchen & Tile Center will work with each customer to make the most of their budget. These five simple upgrades are guaranteed to improve the overall value of your new kitchen.

Transform Your Kitchen With These Must-Haves

#1 – Large Sink

Having a large sink in your kitchen is our #1 must-have! If like most Americans, you can’t afford to have a live-in chef cook and clean up after your family, then you will be the one spending a majority of your time in the kitchen around the sink. The sink is a central hub for cooking and cleaning. To make cooking and cleaning an easier task, having a large sink can go a long way. Not only are large sinks esthetically pleasing, they are functional and allow you to clean large items easily.

One of the most popular large sink options for home owners has been the farmhouse sink. What is just as important as choosing a large sink for your kitchen? Strategically placing your sink near a window. Who wants to stare at a wall while they are washing dishes anyways? Allow natural light to fill your kitchen by adding a medium-sized window in front of your sink.

Bath, Kitchen & Tile Center offers custom sink installation. Choose between 6 different sink materials and 5 different sink styles! Our most popular sink styles include:

  • Divided
  • Vessel / Basin
  • Trough Sink
  • Farmhouse Sink

We even offer customized shaped sinks for those homeowners who want a more unique free-form shape!

#2 – Gas Stove

Not only do gas stoves look nice, they are also more energy efficient than electric stoves. Purchasing a gas stove is one easy way to cut back on monthly utility bills! Did you know that electric stoves use three times as much energy as gas stoves? According to California Energy Commission, a gas stove will cost you less than half as much to operate!

Bonus Tip: To help keep your bank account intact, be sure to invest in a gas stove with an electronic ignition and not a pilot light.

Gas Stove Pros: Energy efficient, affordable, easy flame control, pans don’t need to be completely flat on the bottom (as they do with electric stoves).

Bath, Kitchen & Tile Center chooses to work with a select few brand name appliance companies to ensure the highest of quality in every homeowner’s kitchen.

  • General Electric (GE)
  • GE Monogram
  • Wolf
  • Maytag
  • Sub-Zero
  • ASKO
  • BEST Range Hoods
  • Broan-NuTone

#3 – Backsplash

Adding a tile backsplash in your new kitchen is one easy technique to personalize your space in an esthetically pleasing way. Not only are backsplashes a great way to customize your home, they are also quite functional. Backsplashes can protect your walls from unexpected spills and sprays during cooking and make for a much easier cleanup! At Bath, Kitchen & Tile Center, we have been offering custom tile installation since 1963. With our expansive selection of tiles, you will be able to choose from limitless patterns to find a backsplash that compliments your unique space.

Bath, Kitchen & Tile Center offers custom tile installation with five different types of tile:
