January in Maryland isn’t exactly barbecuing weather. It is, however, the time of year when many of us begin planning our kitchen renovations or remodels. With that in mind, here are some things you’ll want to keep in mind:
Kitchen Renovations for Year-Round Happiness
Maryland is blessed in that we experience four full seasons of weather. With warm springs, long, steamy summers, beautifully colorful autumns and intense winters, we are given many opportunities to create menus and entertaining events to complement what’s happening outdoors. Gathering with friends to share hot cocoa and cookies while the snow is falling is great – but you want to make sure your kitchen remodel is flexible enough to accommodate whatever you plan to do when the weather is warmer.
Connect Your Kitchen To Your Deck or Patio with a Beautiful Door
Strategically positioned decks and patios provide the perfect platform for outdoor entertaining. Use your porch as a place to barbecue, dine, or enjoy cocktails under the stars. Don’t have a porch, deck, or patio? Don’t sweat it – we can build a great one for you! Make life simple for yourself by having your kitchen connect directly to your deck or patio with a beautiful door. Single or double French doors are by far the most popular option: they’re gracious and functional, making it easy to carry food to and from the grill and enjoy your time with your guests while still keeping an eye on the amazing dessert you’ve got finishing in the oven.
Understanding Active Families & Pets
If you’ve got kids and animals, you know that the kitchen is absolutely their favorite place to be. After all, that’s where the snacks come from! Family friendly living means making getting plenty of fresh air and sunshine simple for everyone. As part of your kitchen remodel, talk to your Maryland renovation expert about windows that let in the maximum amount of natural daylight: it’s a great way to keep everyone’s mood up. Also? Integrating features like a second sink for quick clean ups and smart refrigerators that make it easy for the kids to grab a quick drink while they’re on the go more than pay for themselves.
