Little Upgrades Make a BIG Difference in Your Kitchen Remodel Project in Anchorage, Alaska

Tackling a kitchen remodeling project is an exciting and sometimes daunting task. There are a lot of details to consider and a thousand choices that need to be made before your dream kitchen is ready for you and your family to enjoy. So during this holiday season in Anchorage, Alaska we want to share some fun, small upgrades that will make your life so much simpler.

A built-in soap dispenser. Consider not only a soap dispenser for hand soap but also for dish soap. This helps your sink area stay cleaner with less clutter and soap rings on your sink and counter.

Traditional Kitchen

Large kitchen drawers. Well utilized, deep drawers offer all kinds of opportunities. Usually, lighting is better seeing down into said drawers instead of into deep, dark cabinets. If you are vertically challenged, getting items out of drawers is much preferable to overhead cabinets.


Soft-close hinges. Regardless of whether you go with all drawers or the average amount of drawers, invest in soft-close hinges, and you can enjoy the peace and quiet of softly closing drawers.

Contemporary Kitchen

Undercabinet lighting. There are different styles of under cabinet lighting, but many who go the way of fluorescent lights report later that they regret not springing for LED lights. Having lights, that can precisely illuminate the wide variety of tasks we do every day in our kitchen is well worth the investment.

Special garbage disposal switch. Install a switch to the baseboard under the sink for your garbage disposal, and you have the surprisingly fantastic convenience of switching it on and off with your foot.
