Checklist: Setting Up Your New Kitchen

Moving into a new home offers a fresh start and opportunity to create a space that serves your family and lifestyle. As the heart and hearth of the home, your kitchen is a top priority for being set up properly. From lighting and storage to appliances and accessories, there are so many things to consider that it can feel overwhelming. Use this checklist to get organized and make decisions on how to set up key areas of your new kitchen.

Light Things Up
Task lighting, under-cabinet lighting and recessed lighting are all great ways to brighten up your kitchen. You might even consider adding natural light with a new window or door to let in as much sunlight as possible.

Every kitchen has its own spaces for storage, so you’ll want to figure out how to maximize the capacity. Whether you add a lazy Susan, drawer liners or an island with shelves, moving into a new kitchen gives you the chance to get organized.

Cleaning Supplies
Whether you make your own green cleaning products or prefer to buy from the store, you’ll want to develop a strategy for keeping your kitchen clean. From the garbage disposal to your dishwasher and refrigerator, everything deserves to be spruced up now and again. Don’t forget to clean your Delta faucet!

A New Faucet
Since you’ll be using your faucet so much, indulge with a new faucet featuring Touch2O Technology. Available in many collections to coordinate with your style, you’ll thank yourself every time you touch it on and touch it off.

After selecting your faucet, choose accessories in the same style family—traditional, transitional or contemporary. From new drawer pulls and cabinet hardware to beautifully crafted cabinetry, you can put the finishing touches on your new space by adding flourishes and accessories to dress up the kitchen.
