1. Inlaid screen on the refrigerator
Have you ever wanted to listen to your favorite song while cooking but were too afraid to ruin your electronics in the kitchen? Wouldn't it be really convenient if you could look up recipes from a screen inlaid right in your refrigerator door? Thanks to modern technology, all of this is possible. By choosing a new refrigerator with an inlaid tablet, you can check ingredient substitutions, control the other appliances in the room and enjoy your favorite tunes all without leaving the kitchen.

2. Smart appliances
Many modern appliances have been designed for optimal energy efficiency. Dishwashers that are capable of load sensing, coffee makers that self-clean and smoke extractors that make stovetop cooking more pleasant are just a few of the many potential smart appliances on the market. A kitchen remodel is the perfect time to incorporate these items into your kitchen.

3. Media
Many people enjoy having a television or music player mounted in their kitchen. This element is great for watching cooking shows as you craft a gourmet meal or keeping up with the big game while you refill the snack tray. A television or stereo system can also serve as a focal point for your kitchen, giving you the opportunity to experiment with design styles.

4. Smart panel
This inlaid screen is about the size of a tablet. From the smart panel, you can control many other devices in your kitchen, like the oven, stovetop, faucets and ventilation. Smart panels can be connected to your mobile devices to alert you when the oven is preheated, when the kitchen timer is done and when your refrigerator isn't maintaining the proper temperature. You can even create grocery lists on the smart panel so you'll never forget another item.

5. Creative storage
Traditional storage was all about cramming everything in a one-size-option space. In your kitchen remodel, you should consider varying your cabinet length to accommodate cookie sheets and other elongated bakeware. Sliding storage racks and bins are another modern convenience that can make your life easier in the kitchen. You even have the option of adding in-house wine rack.

6. Dimmers
The kitchen is one place where lighting really matters. Dimmers are a great way to ensure that you'll always have the lighting you need. Turn them up to cook at all hours of the night, and turn them down for a romantic meal at the island bar. Dimmers can also help you save energy since you're in control of how bright the lights will be. 

All of the technologies above can help make your kitchen the most convenient room in your home. What better time to install these useful features than during a kitchen remodel? A home improvement expert should be able to assist you with choosing and installing the right technologies in your kitchen. So, no matter if you're the top chef or just a master microwaver, you deserve a kitchen that will leave others in awe.
