Believe it or not, remodeling your kitchen could actually encourage you to make healthier choices. In fact, one-third of homeowners say they change to a healthier lifestyle after remodeling their kitchen. Why? For many, kitchen remodeling encourages them to cook at home more often, meaning healthier eating habits. If you’re looking to live healthier and eat better, here are a few additions to ask your kitchen remodelers about.
- Double up: If you’re hoping to have more than one cook in the house, having extras of kitchen essentials can be a huge help. Look at options like double sinks, stoves with extra burners, and so on to make sure you’ve got enough space in your kitchen for all the cooks you’ll have.
- Extra counter space: We’ve all been there; you’re cooking a larger meal, and you run out food prep space. You’re left having to get creative with where you’re resting a cutting board or bowl full of food. Instead, talk to your kitchen remodeling contractors about extending any existing counter space you have. This will give you plenty of space to work without your kitchen feeling cramped.
- A kitchen island: If you’ve got enough space in your kitchen, you might be able to add a kitchen island. This will give you not only space to cook more, but will allow you to more easily entertain any guests you have. Just check with your kitchen remodelers first to be sure you’ve got enough room for this without making your kitchen feel smaller.
- New appliances: If you’re already going to be remodeling your kitchen, take a look at what appliances you have. If you haven’t updated them in a while, it’s worth looking into what newer options are available. Many of these will help you save energy, and some even use smart technology to help you lead a healthier life.
