You Will Love These Tips for Designing a Functional Kitchen

Have you ever walked into a home’s kitchen and loved the look and feel — but couldn’t see how the kitchen design was functional for the family? Kitchens are all-too-easy to get wrong, with people crowded up in a single corner or a lack of necessary cabinet space. Keep these tips in mind when you’re looking at kitchen design, and you’re sure to have a functional space your whole family will love.

1. Scale the Walls

There is only so much horizontal space for storage in a kitchen, so why not go vertical? You can creatively create storage along the walls for spices, knives and other items that you’re using every day. Bonus: this helps keep your countertops clutter free!

2. Get Smart with Storage

Creating a functional kitchen starts with taking advantage of every nook and cranny. A smart storage solution such as a corner rotating cabinet provides you with a double dose of space that might otherwise be overlooked.

3. Plan Your Workflow

Putting your sink next to your dishwasher may seem like a no-brainer, but you might be surprised how many people make the rookie mistake of putting the dishwasher across the room from the sink. No one wants to drip dirty, wet dishwater on the floor as you’re shuffling items from the sink to the dishwasher for cleaning.

4. Everything In Its Place

Getting drawer dividers in place that will help you keep your organization in order is a great tip from the pros. Look for one place for every item in your kitchen and be sure to always put it back in that spot to minimize the mess and make your space more usable.

Creating a highly functional kitchen is easy when you stop to think about how you’ll be using the space in the future. When you work with the professionals at Connecticut Kitchen & Bath Center, you’ll be gaining decades of experience for your next project. Contact us today at 203-265-4002.
