How a Professional Chef Would Remodel Your Kitchen

Watch any TV cooking show, and you’ll notice that a chef’s kitchen looks
quite a bit different than what you’d find in most homes. But, that doesn’t
mean you can’t have one just like it in your home! With a little remodeling,
and splurging on some new items, you too can have a kitchen worthy of
Gordon Ramsey, Jamie Oliver, or Rachel Ray.
Chefs love counter space. So, when remodeling, plan to create as much as
possible. If you have an existing island, for example, you can replace the
countertop with a larger one. Just adding eight inches in both directions will
make a big difference.
Most chefs have more than one oven. If that’s impractical for you, consider
buying a double-oven stove. Also, chefs prefer gas burners for quicker heatup
times and exacting control of cooking temperature.
One thing you’ll notice about chefs is they love stainless steel.
That’s because it’s easy-to-clean, hygienic and durable (assuming you take
care of it).
Finally, because chefs spend so much time in the kitchen, they want the
space to be attractive and comfortable. So, when remodeling, keep decor
in mind.
Even if you’re just an amateur chef, creating a chef-worthy kitchen will make
the foodie in you smile.
