The kitchen is perhaps the most important space in your house, the hub of family activity. For many people, it is not only a place for food storage and food preparation, but also the room for eating, for sitting down as a family and talking. It’s often where kids do their homework, where adults share a relaxing glass of wine after dinner, and where the family pets are constantly being shooed away from the counters. Regardless of your family dynamics, it’s quite likely you all spend a large part of every day in the kitchen, cooking, cleaning, putting away shopping, and interacting with each other.
With that in mind, it’s essential that the space you have works efficiently. So many different jobs are undertaken in the kitchen that storage spaces and work spaces are crucial. Even simple tasks, like making a sandwich, become mammoth assignments if you cannot find the butter or nobody remembers to put the chopping board back where it belongs.
Careful redesign can make this space work seamlessly, meaning that anything you’re trying to do becomes easy and straightforward, saving you time and frustration in your busy schedules. These design were created by the expertise of a Melbourne kitchen designer – assisting with the overall functionality of the kitchen without sacrificing on aesthetic, letting you neatly store your pans, recipe books, spices, seasoning, ingredients, and even your kid’s backpack which always gets left on the kitchen table.
Many kitchens are poorly designed and don’t allow for the sort of open plan layout many people want; a lack of sideboard space can lead to a pile-up of clutter, which will frustrate your attempts to cook or clean. It’s also important to consider how many more gadgets are found in kitchens today; kettles, toasters, and microwaves have been standard for a while, but these have been added to by blenders, juicers, soda siphons, coffee makers, bread machines, and so many other things. While these are great for making our lives easier, storing them certainly doesn’t, so rethinking your kitchen layout to incorporate these devices while maintaining a clutter-free space will seriously improve your kitchen.
