5 Things Every New Kitchen Needs

Are you in the process of designing a new kitchen? If so, there are a few things you’ll want to make sure to include. Here are five essentials that every new kitchen needs. With these features in place, your kitchen will be ready for any cooking adventure.

Insinkerator – the easy way to dispose of garbage

If there’s one thing we could never do without in our kitchens, it would be a garbage disposal unit. As anyone who’s ever tried to dispose of scraps and leftovers knows, garbage disposal makes for quick and easy cleanup – not to mention that it saves time on dishes as well.

Insinkerator has been a leading brand in garbage disposals for over 70 years. In addition to exceptional performance, Insinkerator also offers a stylish appearance that fits in seamlessly with any kitchen décor.

An Insinkerator offers a quick and efficient way to deal with food waste. Find out more about how the Insinkerator works and the benefits they provide from our plumbing team in the video above.

Kitchen lighting

Great kitchen lighting

Make sure there’s ample lighting in your kitchen. If you’re switching from an older design, chances are that your kitchen lighting was inadequate. Adding additional lighting fixtures is a great way to enhance the appearance of your kitchen as well as make it easier for you to see what you’re cooking up.

Consider having LED lights installed above the counter for crucial task lighting. This style of lighting has the advantage of being both energy-efficient and long-lasting. Another option is to install under cabinet LED lights, which not only give you great lighting for cooking but also add an attractive touch of style.

Whether you go with sconces or pendant lights, simply adding more light can transform your kitchen.

Install a water filter to purify your tap water

Unless you own a spring or a well, your local tap water may not be the freshest or purest thing to drink. While you can always buy bottled water, it’s not environmentally friendly, a better solution might be to install a water filter in your kitchen. This will make it easy for you to conveniently enjoy fresh and delicious drinking water at any time in your home.

Find out more about the benefits of an under sink water filter in the explainer video above; especially a high flow model that filters the water to your main tap, meaning you don’t need to have a second tap on your kitchen sink.
