Home renovators know that a kitchen renovation is one of the most popular changes that you can make in your home. A kitchen renovation not only updates the look of the interior space, but it also adds value to your home, improves your family’s quality of life and attracts future buyers. If your kitchen is showing signs of ageing, giving it a makeover is one of the best bang-for-your-buck projects that you can undertake to bring it back to life.
Increase the Value of Your Home
According to HGTV, kitchen improvements increase the value of your home more than most renovations. Since the kitchen is the heart of a home, it’s essential that you invest in a modern, fresh and desirable kitchen. Each year, the Appraisal Institute of Canada surveys its members and compiles a list of renovations that yield the best return on investment. Year after year, renovated kitchens top the list.

Top Cabinet Accessories Choices
Trash Can Pull Out
It’s time to get rid of your old plastic trash bin on the side of the island with a trash unit built-in to your cabinetry, preferably a double, for trash and recycling. This item is one of the most popular and practical requiring as little space as 18 or 21 inches of cabinet space to fit the double-trash can pull out.
Spice Rack Pull Out
A spice rack pull out is a really practical space saving solution and requires as little as 3-6 inches of space used in the upper cabinets or the lower ones below the counter. The most commonly used are the filler spice racks or units with tiered shelves that allow spices to be displayed so you can view everything that you have at a glance.
Vertical dividers are extremely practical and useful for any number of different kitchen objects. They are a great storage solution for cutting boards, cookie sheets, muffin tins, platters, baking pans, pie dishes, large lids and even cooling racks. They are often located in the upper portion of tall cabinetry, such as an oven cabinet, pantry or deep refrigerator upper cabinet. Because they require little space, they can also be used in narrow base cabinets from 9-12 inches.
A Lazy Susan is a corner unit that turns at a 90-degree angle on both sides. Typically seen in 36-inch sizes, they have two carousels with or without a center supporting pole. Without the supporting pole, they can spin 360 degrees and can accommodate a lot of kitchen stuff into them.
Roll Out Drawers
A must-have kitchen cabinet accessory is a roll-out drawer to avoid digging around in the back of cabinets for pots and pans. You can have one, two, or three, with three being the most practical and useful.
