We all want home spaces that we can brag about; let’s call it “instagrammable” if you will. However, your kitchen is among the areas of your home that should exude practicality. While other areas can be amped up to be glamorous, the kitchen should be designed for comfort and utility. It should be a place you can work, prepare and eat inconveniently. That said, here are key modern ideas you can incorporate into your kitchen.
Wide Counters are King
If your kitchen was designed to be a transition space, or somewhere people pass through to get to a different part of the house, make sure you have wide countertops. This fixture design allows for easier food preparation and gives you enough space for your kitchen appliances.
Consider everything that you use in a kitchen – plates, pots and pans, containers, cutlery, and more. Now, make sure you have room for them. Also, create partitions to make each space distinct from the item. Lastly, make sure you have a noticeable area for your rubbish.
Lighting and Ventilation
It’s a given that we need to see and breathe, but our kitchens need the best of these particularly. With the sheer nature of the activities in this space, we need the area to be well-lit and to have proper ventilation. That said, improvements on these two key aspects will make you look forward to kitchen time more.
