The Kitchen Specialist lists down efficient kitchen designing tips for a well planned kitchen.
Store frequently used cutlery and utensils in the top drawers, below the countertop for ease of accessibility. Place other utensils and food storage according to the frequency of usage.
Plate trays can be placed above the sink. The excess water through the plate can automatically drip into the sink.
The minimum height of a kitchen countertop should be 90 centimetres. If your height is shorter or longer than usual, adapt the height of the countertop accordingly to your comfort.
Keep a distance of at least 60 centimetres from the chimney so that you don’t bang your head to the chimney every time you are using the hob.
Use the space under the sink for waste bins; fit the bin holder to the shutter of the undersink cabinet. A single pullout can be mounted on the other shutter under the sink, and can be used to store detergents and washing agents.
Mount the spice pullout near the hob, to access it easily while cooking.
The tall unit or pullout is a great idea for maximum storage in minimum space, plus the pullout makes it very easy to access the back of the unit without a hassle.
The Work Triangle concept makes working easy by placing the three main zones of cooking, cleaning and storage in a triangular formation.
Do not waste the corner units by filling unnecessary stuff. Corners can be converted into most efficient places with corner units, where you can easily store your heavy utensils like pressure cookers and big pans conveniently.
A good sense of lighting under the cabinet makes the kitchen appear larger and more pleasing.
