Design Trends: Kitchen by Sheridan Road Contributor • June 1, 2022 • The experts at Kashian Bros. suggest these chef-inspired upgrades for your home kitchen. Hide extra electrical outlets and power cords inside cabinets and throughout the island. Create separate countertop spaces for prepping food and for serving food to guests while cooking. Install a built-in steam oven and place both ovens at eye-level to manage multiple dishes. Add task lighting to all workstations. Ambient and decorative lighting are important, but task lighting ensures you can prep with ease. Install wood floors, which are comfortable to stand on for several hours of cooking and are easy to clean. Plan enough sink space to rinse food and stow dishes as you cook. Make sure knives and other essential tools are easy to access.
