Kitchen Layout Tips
When it comes to your kitchen, you want it to be a space that looks good but makes cooking easy and convenient. You don’t want to have to constantly move from one place to another to get the utensils and supplies needed for dinner, so planning the kitchen layout with certain these things in mind is the best way to approach the remodel. Below are some things to consider for your kitchen layout.
The trash should be close to the sink
In a lot of kitchens, the trash is located under the sink, and this make it incredibly convenient and easy to access. Having the trash close to the sink means that when chopping or peeling, it’s not hard to get rid of the waste.
Knives should also be stored near the sink. The less walking around the kitchen you have to do with a knife—whether it’s to clean it or put it away after being washed—the safer it is for everyone.
Have a spot for larger appliances
While it’s totally fine to store mixers, blenders, coffee pots, and toasters on top of your counters, they take up a lot of space. If you need that space for cooking, you should have a dedicated space to store your appliances. You may consider getting an appliance garage installed or save room in your pantry for these items.
Have cabinets with pullout drawers near the stove
When you’re cooking, the last thing you want to do is get down on your hands and knees and dig for the pot or pan you’re looking for. Having cabinets with pullout drawers near the range will make it easy to find and access the cooking implement you need.
Keep the area open
Being able to move freely around your kitchen space is a must, and it could reduce the amount of injuries that occur while cooking. Keep your kitchen area open and clutter free for ease of access and safety.
