When it comes time to renovate your kitchen, every single family, particularly the main cook or caregiver, has an endless list of wants, and needs, things that they feel will make their kitchen more useful to them, more convenient and more functional for what they want to do in the kitchen.

The only real variable in doing those things you want to do, is how much you want, or are able to spend on the renovations in your kitchen, however, according to designers at DDK Kitchen Design, here are the areas that most people think they would like to have changes and the things they would like to implement in their kitchen.

** Warming drawers that will keep food at the idea temperature, a must have for the upscale kitchen, owned by the affluent, but also wanted by those who are less wealthy who have many guests and more frequently.

**Designer Appliances, which give the look of a custom kitchen, and often times look as though they are part of the cabinets or will dissappear into those cabinets.

**Custom designed range hoods, made of brass, copper or perfectly tiled in the French country design.

**Wine coolers built into the house, are one of the more popular, as well as smaller low level refrigerators that are easily accessed by children to store juice, water and snacks for their own use.

**Deep chocolates and dark woods with the feel of another century have become a must have as well, along with custom kitchen islands with the highly decorative feet.

**Glass cabinet doors, which are backlit to show up the design on the glass or copper faces.

**Granite or soapstone countertops are more popular than ever with even the smallest kitchens, even some in apartments or premanufactured housing being turned into stone.

From the smallest apartment to the largest home, it seems people are not all that different in their tastes and what will make their kitchen space more convenient and more readily able to be what the owner needs to help him in his quest for convenience, with style and elegance, while being as utilitarian as possible.

If you are curious as to what you might need in your own kitchen, what areas could use improvement, try making a list of what you use most often, what features could be added to help you in your entertainment or daily work and then visit with an interior designer for a consult.

While you may not necessarily want to use a designer, it couldn’t hurt to speak with one to find out the current trends and whats hot.
