Improving Kitchen Safety with a Remodel

Offering the best craftsmanship and an elevated customer service in MA since 2019

The kitchen represents one of the communal spaces of a home. It can also represent one of the more hazardous areas of a house. If you have kids in the house, improving the safety standards of this space is an advisable strategy to take when remodeling. 

Some of the effective ways you can enhance the safety levels of this area during a Newton MA Kitchen Remodeling project include: 

Installing Slip-Resistant Flooring 

The kitchen is an area that frequently suffers from wet patches on the floor as a result of spilled, water, oil, and the like. Opting for soft glazed ceramic tiles, textured vinyl, or matte-finished laminate material is an effective way of lowering the risk involved with slips. 

Improved Lighting 

Many activities in a kitchen can be dangerous if an individual’s vision is impeded. Simple actions such as chopping vegetables, tuning food on a grill, or even examining a cooking meal can lead to accidents when poor lighting is involved. Installing LED lights is a good way to overcome this impediment and lower your energy bill. 

Installing Electrical Outlets in Safe Positions 

All electrical switches, outlets, and lighting fixtures should be kept away from wet regions and dusty areas. Building codes require wall-mounted switches to be between 15 to 48 inches above the ground. If you’re looking to enhance the safety standards of your kitchen with a remodel, call us today!
