There are a few things you’ll want to think about when choosing a design for your kitchen.
When deciding on a design while preparing for kitchen renovations in Oshawa, it is important to think of both functionality and luxurious style. As the centre of your home, your kitchen will have multiple functions – workstation by day, homework desk in the evening, a chef’s kitchen for dinner, and a comfortable space to entertain on weekends. This has forced designers to really look at cloaking and dual functionality for everything in the kitchen.
These days you’ll see stove tops that disappear under the counter, cutting boards that hide in drawers, sinks that have covers to mimic the counter top, and fridges are no longer a vertical mainstay of the kitchen. They can now be a set of drawers under a counter top. Everything is about creating more space and natural flow.
Nevertheless, whatever your vision, we have the ability and the manpower to craft it into reality.
Not only will your kitchen renovation turn your home into a hotspot for hosting friends and family in Oshawa, it will also add exceptional value. Traditionally, kitchen and bathroom renovations bring the highest return on investments for homeowners

The Top 6 Hottest Kitchen Renovation Trends For 2016.
#6 – Cloaking makes your appliances disappear
Some of our clients don’t want a giant fridge as the focal point of their kitchens, and have asked for the cloaked option: refrigerator drawers.
- Refrigerator drawers are fridge and freezer models that fit underneath countertops in place of cabinets.
- These super handy units fit in the space of a traditional cabinet and slide outwards just like a regular cabinet drawer door.
- Food doesn’t seem to go to waste when you can see your food.
- Forget bending down and the awkwardness of trying to find the hidden veggies in the veggie drawer. Set up your juicer and grab them from the island drawer!
- Both Sub Zero and The KitchenAid Architect Series II line offer an under-counter solution.
#5 – Hide Your Electrical Outlets
You invested so much in your backsplash, so let’s face it; an electrical outlet might stand out like a sore thumb. Luckily, electrical outlets no longer have to be placed on your back splash. Think it through in advance. Below a few design tricks consider in advance during the planning stage for your kitchen renovation in Oshawa and surrounding areas:
- Consider running a plug strip behind the under-cabinet lights.
- Think of designing a purposeful secret compartment. You can hide an outlet behind a little trap door. When you need the plug, just open the door and plug in the appliance. This is especially handy on an island.
- Think of moving the outlets to a lower, horizontal position. This helps keep outlets out of the design-critical parts of the backsplash. And because you won’t have long cords snaking up to a higher plug, they’ll be mostly out of sight when in use.
- Ask the designer if they can hide light switches or incorporate them into the design.
#4 – Downdraft Ventilation
Stove top ranges: Hooray! Homeowners are no longer limited to venting from the ceiling. There are due to beautiful new products like Bosh Benchmark wall ovens and downdraft ventilation cooktops (which means sight lines are no longer compromised). Your stove top can be by a window.
#3 – Incorporate Kitchen Technology
Get ready for a high-tech makeover! Also consider motion-activated lighting for under your cabinets and or island. Think of hidden storage docks for your phones, tablets and laptops. Think surround sound. Think wireless. Think automation.
#2 – High End Smart Appliances
Have you considered bringing your Air Conditioner, Vacuum Cleaner, Refrigerator, Coffee Makers, Dishwasher or Freezer to life? Think of planning for a new suite of high-end household appliances that will all link to your smartphones and tablets via mobile apps.
Your internet connection will allow you to perform a wide range of slick tricks like receiving alerts for when the bread is baked, when your ice tray is full, or the status of the dishwasher and what food needs to be replenished in your refrigerator. Imagine receiving a heads-up in the event of a power outage and if internal temperatures exceeds a safety zone.
#1 – Incorporate a Kitchen Workstation
Is your kitchen a dumping ground for the never-ending school work and paperwork? A kitchen workstation is a place to help organize your work, kid’s school activities and the clutter in your life. A perfect place to store cooking books, access a laptop containing your favorite recipes, hide the clutter, do homework or simply give a temporary home to your mail and unopened bills.
The design can seamlessly be integrated to look like part of your kitchen, add an accent with a chair, and storage space for convenience. You too can have an aesthetically pleasing workstation designed for a professional chef and busy family.
