If you are planning a kitchen remodel, you’re probably thinking about updating those outdated kitchen appliances as well. At Titus Contracting, our motto is function, form, and feeling.  When it comes to kitchen remodels, function takes first priority.  How do you cook? What appliances do you use most? Once we’ve decided how you utilize your kitchen in terms of adjacencies, we will then help design a layout that meets both your design and functionality needs.  Here are some things to consider:


The refrigerator is often the largest appliance in your kitchen, which means you’ll want to make sure it’s placed in the proper position—both for space and plumbing purposes. You’ll also want to consider how much you utilize your fridge in general.  Are you a fresh food shopper? If so, then you’ll likely need a larger, side-by-side refrigerator with extra storage space.  Additionally, consider the size of your family.  A slim, one-door refrigerator—even if it fits perfectly in your current space—will only become more of a hassle down the road.  Oftentimes it’s worth it to go with the more practical appliance option even if it requires you to rearrange the layout of your kitchen space.


Even dishwashers have innovative designs that you may want to consider when planning your kitchen remodel. One option available now is a multiple-drawer dishwasher. This gives you the option of using one or both drawers – you can even set the temperature and settings differently for each drawer to customize washes.  Talk about luxury!

Ranges and Cooktops

Ranges have evolved immensely, with many cooking options available, but choosing the right high-end range for your space, cooking style, and budget can be tricky without guidance. The idea is to combine many of the separate small appliances into one larger range. Choose from double ovens, induction heat, air frying functions, and convection. In addition, many ranges are now “dual fuel” to enjoy the benefits of gas heating for the cooktop top and electricity for the ovens. 

Many modern kitchens are designed without a range and, instead, contain separate cooktops and ovens. This can give you more options for adding convenient storage spaces for each element during design. 


If you opt for a separate cooktop from your ovens, you have more customization over your baking appliance options. You can choose from many unique features and designs, from double to triple wall ovens and more. These ovens can also include air fry, sous vide, convention, and even auto baking settings for ease of use. Additionally, french door designs can add uniqueness and beauty to your new kitchen.
