Dare to Imagine your Dream Kitchen

There’s a reason the kitchen is called the heart of the home: It’s where you and your family gather to cook, to eat, to socialize, and, sometimes, just to catch up over a quick snack or a cup of coffee. In many homes, the kitchen has evolved into an all-purpose room, including a dining table, computer desk, entertainment area, even a fireplace. At Remodeler’s Outlet we think of our Viking Brand product line as the pulse that affords the kitchen a heartbeat. Whether selected for newly constructed homes or in home renovation, Viking ranges, dishwashers, refrigerators, ovens, ventilation hoods and kitchen accessories bring an unsurmounted touch of class to the kitchen and offer cooking possibilities you’ve only dreamed possible.

Today’s kitchens are practical, welcoming, and fun. They feature sophisticated colors and innovative components. They also look more like the rest of the house, complete with furniture-like cabinets, wood flooring, and artwork. Viking offers many appliances in both rustic wood panel finishes and custom colors to compliment any space in your “Dream Kitchen.” The perfect recipe for a beautiful kitchen calls for giving a lot of thought to both the components and the activities that take place in the room, from cooking and cleanup to snacking and socializing. How many kitchens have you visited with a built in ice maker or a beautiful wine cellar and thought, “one day if I’m building my dream kitchen, those will be definitely be a part of the space I want to create for my family?” Viking has all that and more to offer while you consider this most important room. Above all, the perfect kitchen is both comfortable and a pleasure to work in. Here are a few simple elements to consider for your well-planned kitchen.

Style

The design of your kitchen may be classic or contemporary, casual or formal, high-tech or homey—whatever reflects your style preference. Because the cabinets, countertops, and appliances comprise the major components in a kitchen space, you’ll want to decide what your overall style will be before choosing them. If you’re worried about combining looks with practicality, many designs strive to blend traditional looks with modern conveniences. A generously proportioned kitchen with classic materials and up-to-date amenities proves to be both stylish and practical.

Layout

Kitchen layout studies in the 1950s introduced the term work triangle, whose three legs connect the refrigerator, sink, and range or rangetop. An efficient work triangle reduces the steps a cook must take during meal preparation and, whenever possible, is not interrupted by traffic flow. Today, the work triangle is being challenged by other options; nevertheless, it is still a valuable starting point for good kitchen design. If your space is small, you might want to consider a one wall kitchen or a galley kitchen. Gaining in popularity are minimalist kitchens, in which obvious kitchen elements such as the refrigerator and upper cabinets are downplayed or tucked out of sight and the kitchen area has the same sensibility as the living space it has merged with. Deluxe kitchens are expansive spaces that often have two or more work zones.

Appliances

These include products like the Viking Professional 5/7 Series refrigerator, Viking Professional 5/7 Series range, and Viking Professional 5/7 Series dishwasher. You may also want to look at a Viking Professional Series rangetop, combination ovens, wine coolers, warming drawers, and much more. The trick is to figure out just what you need and the Remodeler’s Outlet Southern Home Collection is just the place to start.
