If you’re the kind of person who loves cooking up new recipes, you probably spend most of your time in the kitchen. Careful planning can turn your kitchen into a relaxing and enjoyable space, whether you’re preparing meals, cleaning, eating, or hosting guests.
The most important thing to remember during your kitchen renovation is that your lifestyle should guide your layout and design, not the other way around. Here are some of the most efficient fixes for a kitchen you’ll never get tired of.
Let your cooking needs plan the countertops
Before making any decisions about your countertops, give some thought to your cooking habits and demands. People who prepare elaborate meals daily (perhaps multiple times a day) need more counter space. Consider getting granite countertops since they’re resistant to heat and stains, durable, affordable, and easy to maintain. And if you want to encourage your kids to help out in the kitchen, consider installing counters at two different heights so they can work at their own level.
Assess your space requirements realistically
It’s good to determine how much space you have to work with and then include storage solutions in the overall kitchen layout. Optimize storage space at eye level, or hang some upper cabinets to show off your beautiful silver cookware.
To create a kitchen that will serve your family well for years to come, you may need to go against the grain. Open shelving may be trending, but if you want to optimize storage, top cabinets are the way to go.
Embrace the open floor plan concept
If you’ve ever tried to prepare a meal while sharing a kitchen with another person, you know how challenging it can be. Changing your kitchen layout allows for maximum efficiency if you have a large family or multiple cooks in the home.
Open layouts are also better for hosting guests. A kitchen island is a great place for friends and family to wait or sit and chat while you prepare a meal. This way, you won’t feel left out of the action because you’re stuck in the kitchen while everyone else has fun in the living room.
Consider getting more kitchen appliances
You may want to consider adding more of your most used kitchen appliances if you have a large family or a lot of food preparation to accomplish. Divide and conquer the cooking duties by installing an extra microwave oven and mini-fridge or a fridge in your kitchen. Create an after-school hangout for kids by adding barstools around the kitchen island.
