Kitchen renovations are nearly always big projects. They are arguably one of the most time-consuming, expensive, and stressful rooms in the entire house to renovate, especially if the renovation involves gutting things down to the bones. So as the end draws near, and the kitchen is just about done, it’s normal to want to just wrap it all up and start enjoying the space. Before you do that however, there are a few must-have accessories that could really add those finishing touches. Let’s take a closer look.

Window Coverings

If you happen to have a window in your kitchen, there’s no doubt that you love the natural light pouring in while you’re busy with meal preparation. However, there will be times where that light may be a bit too bright, or perhaps you want a little privacy, and that’s why you don’t want to forget about window coverings. 

One option that works especially well in kitchens is roller blinds. There are roller blinds like these from DotcomBlinds which are made to measure, which means they are customised to fit your kitchen's window exactly. The blinds are made from material that is anti-bacterial (ideal for a kitchen), and they are moisture resistant and child safe, so you don't have to worry about them posing a safety risk. 

Not only that, but the blinds also come with a three-year warranty, so you have peace of mind in your purchase. Available in a wide array of colours, it adds a sense of privacy, yet still allows the light to come in when you want it to.

Additional Lighting

Another accessory you may want to add is additional lighting such as hanging pendant lighting over an island, under-cabinet lighting, additional ceiling fixtures, and any other type of lighting that you think would work well in the space. The fact is that you can never have too much available light in the kitchen, as you don’t want any dark spots when you’re busy rushing around trying to tidy up, prepare meals, and even when you’re enjoying a meal as a family.

The Perfect Hardware for the Cupboards

Whether you have included a kitchen cabinet remodel or not in your project, make sure you take a close look at the current hardware (handles and pulls). These can age the cabinets and not allow them to flow with the rest of the design. By swapping these out for something new, it will feel as though you have all new custom cabinets.

Plenty of Seating

Finally, there is the seating. You want to be sure that you don’t just think about how many seats you’ll need at the table on a regular daily basis, but also if you are entertaining. Think about what the space allows rather than how many seats you think you need. If the space allows for extra chairs, then you’re best to go ahead and add them. Chances are they will be used.
