Think about each detail and how it’s going to work. Bring it down to the essentials.
You need places to store things as well as appliances that let you bake, boil, steam and fry. Your kitchen should reflect these priorities in every detail.
For example, start with the kind of appliances you want. Look for those appliances that do double duty. A microwave that also doubles as a convection oven lets you reduce the need for a second oven.
It’s also imperative to make the most of your storage space. You want to have storage that lets you reach in and grab what you need.
Put in a lazy susan in the corner. Twirl it around and you can find those spices or the crackers you need to make the perfect pie crust.
Lighting is imperative. You need see what you’re doing. Put in light where you can. Under the counter lights take up little space but make it easy to find things. Overhead lighting should include task lighting. This way, you can see the eggs you’re turning into that fabulous plate of scrambled eggs for breakfast.
Think about where you want to put in seating. You need space for guests and small children when possible. Stools on rollers can be moved from the kitchen to other spaces when they are not in use.
That makes it easy to keep your kitchen spaces functional and flexible.
Everyone can have a kitchen that works for them perfectly. No matter how small the space, you can always make it work for your needs.
