If you’re looking to open up your kitchen and share the view with an adjacent dining room or living room – consider knocking down some partitions! This method works well for non load-bearing walls that don’t carry any structural value. Your kitchen can grow in size or it can just get opened up to other areas of your home.

Remove items that can find a home in other places: in many kitchen pantries the storage is adequate, but the pantry is being used for a catchall of other items too. The kitchen trash can, recycle bins, and storage of large items like pet food, and bulk beverages can find a new place in your home. Consider installing under counter/sink trash cans and recycle bins to free up space in the pantry. Bulk items may be able to be housed in the garage in an air tight bin, or in a laundry room or utility closet that has more space than the kitchen pantry.

Consider installing a dimmer switch for versatility while entertaining, cooking, or just relaxing for a midnight snack!

Ovens/Stoves: When considering an oven and stove, think about how you typically cook and if you’re a novice or an experienced cook. The oven or stove you choose can have a great impact on how you cook and whether the energy you use to heat them is worthwhile. Convection over conventional ovens tends to use more energy but for expert cooks they enjoy the even distribution over heat and can usually cook their food faster and with more control. For those interested in buying a stove or cooktop, there are several options: induction, gas or electric all have their pros and cons. Most beginning cooks appreciate electric for its slow heat up, while experienced cooks prefer induction and ultimately gas stoves for its fast heat up and ability to cook under precise conditions.

The trend has been around for some time, but this basic, stream lined look is here to stay in 2014. To avoid a cold uninviting kitchen experience, add some natural wood accessories, which will do wonders to the aura of the room.

Shop at outlet stores: Similarly to discontinued appliances, outlet stores offer models that are no longer in production, as well as scratch and dent selections, or appliances that home owners have returned but are in good working order. Consider looking in your local area for appliance store brands that offer outlet stores. They usually will be located away from mainstream shopping centers, and they usually will still hold up to their warranties and servicing options on the appliances they sell. Outlet stores are a good option for house renters!
