When performing a bathroom & kitchen remodeling job, there are several important things you will first need to consider, most of which are associated with the placement of the kitchen area. Kitchens which are on the first floors of a house generally have good ventilation. Most basements, however, are usually not too well ventilated. In order to make a basement kitchen safe to work in, you may have to install a ventilation system. Safety is crucial, which is why you need to have a plan for putting kitchen fires out, even when your plan is as basic as using a fire extinguisher.
Consider how you will use a basement kitchen. Will it be used as the main one? If so, it makes more sense to position it close to your dining area. If you are only going to use it to make light meals to be eaten in the adjoining room, then placement is not as important. Should it be the latter, consider putting in a galley kitchen, instead of going all out and installing all of mods and cons.
In most cases, putting in the plumbing and wiring is relatively easy. The reason is most houses have this already in their basements. For people who have no experience with this, you should speak to your kitchen remodeling contractor. Those planning on using a gas stove must be cautious and only use a professional to do this. Plus, make sure you understand all the pitfalls of using a gas oven in basement kitchens.
One disadvantage with a basement kitchen is some basements are prone to flooding. Flooding will ruin much of the equipment placed in a working basement kitchen. In order to protect your investment, make sure you take steps to prevent this from happening. One good way to do this is by diverting rainwater away from your house using numerous landscaping methods.
