Always dreamt of that perfect kitchen – where everything is organized and fully functional? Well, you may not have the best kitchen, but if you’re planning to renovate it, you can incorporate these unique features which will make not only make your kitchen look great, but will also make it more organized and systematic. It’s just a few things that we generally tend to overlook, introduce them in your kitchen and see the difference it will make!
- Pot Filler:
Fed up of constant trips to the tap and the cooktop? Get Pot filler installed! These taps are very useful, and you’ll find water within your reach anytime you want! Plus it’s fixed at a height that can reach the tallest of your jars and pots! A great time and energy saver!!
- Coffee bar:
It’s a great way to keep non-cooks out of the way! You can have a Coffee bar that is equipped with an oven, a tiny refrigerator and a coffee machine. A couple of bar stools and this will become the favourite place for family time or party conversations!
- Optimise corners:
No matter how big your kitchen is, space never seems to be enough! So use every tiny corner that’s available. The corners on top of the kitchen counter or below the sink have a lot of potentials to store not so often used pots and pans.
- Spice drawers:
Spices are something we need to keep handy. So have a tiny drawer that holds all your spices and is easily accessible, probably below the burner.
- Divided drawers:
While drawers help to organise your stuff, divided drawers are even more systematic. You can keep your hand blender and other equipment in one drawer yet separately. This makes sure they don’t get entangled with each other and ensures easy access.
- Utensil racks with S hooks:
These racks with the ‘S’ shaped hooks are indeed space savers. Plus, your ladles and drainers will be kept at easy access. You can install it along a wall or under a cabinet or any other space that’s available.
- Tray compartment:
Make a separate compartment for your trays. You could opt for vertical divides and keep your dishes and large plates neatly arranged.
- Silent hinges:
No one wants cabinet doors that make a loud noise when shut. Opt for silent hinges that will help you cook even while people are asleep.
- Opt for closed cabinets:
Open shelves may look great and allow you to keep your utensils on display, keep in mind they’re not feasible when it comes to maintenance. As much as possible, incorporate closed cabinets. They give a more organised look.
- Cover the space with cabinets:
Empty space means settling of dust in it. Preferably cover all the areas with cabinets. It will not only give you more space but also help maintain the kitchen. Even faux cabinets are an option.
Make sure you consider these ideas and give a thorough thought in creating a kitchen that looks good and functions better!
