Size of your kitchen:
One of the most important factors in designing the most functional kitchen is size. Considerations have to be made for workspace, storage and of course foot traffic to ensure maximum efficiency from your new kitchen.
Maximize your counter space:
If there's one rule to redesigning your kitchen, that you can never have too much counter space. Between countertops cluttered with appliances, prep stations and areas for eating, it can become an issue very quickly. Try to maximize the area you reserve for countertops the next time you remodel.
If you consider yourself a master chef, convenience and accessibility are the keys to a happy and stress free experience when preparing a meal. Consider appliance garages to maximize space when installing your microwave and other smaller kitchen appliances.
Some extra help:
In order to avoid needless movement when preparing dinner, consider adding an extra foldout faucet above your stove. Also be sure to equip your kitchen with numerous outlets. This way you will never need to walk across the kitchen to plug in a blender, or check the cook timer on your phone.
Do not waste space:
Every inch of your kitchen should have a purpose. Whether it is magnetic knives for easy storage on your kitchen backsplash or cabinets that go from floor to ceiling, no space should go unused.
You are working with sharp knives and extreme heat. Be sure to include the proper lighting to ensure concentration and visibility is never an issue.
