Pro Kitchen Design Ideas to Make You a Food Star at Home
Create the ultimate culinary dream space with these kitchen design essentials.
Do you often feel like you're in an episode of Chopped? Crammed in a tiny, confined space, bumping into your blender or food processor? It's time to pare down and turn your kitchen into the hard-working kitchen of your dreams.
Counter Space Is Essential
Let me reiterate: counter space is essential. Even the simplest of recipes require countertop real estate for preparation and ingredient layout. To ensure you have the space to get the job done, keep your counters clear...except for what you really need.
Organization Is Key
Decide how you work best in your kitchen. Do you like having your plates and glassware within reach on open shelves? Or, do you like keeping everything concealed behind cabinetry? Maybe you like glass-front cabinets for a compromise? Either way, the key to an efficient kitchen is an organized kitchen. Think about it this way: if it's difficult to get to, you won't use it. Opt for clean, clutter-free ideas like magnetic knife strips, pot racks and clear canisters for baking essentials.
Get Only What You Need
Buy your appliances according to your lifestyle. If you only make waffles once a year, then nix the wafflemaker. Keep small appliances concealed until you need them. The coffeemaker is our one exception. #butfirstcoffee
Keep It Casual
Depending on the layout of your home, your kitchen may double as a workspace and party hub. During a party, you may be prepping cocktails and hors d'oeuvres with your guests in the kitchen. Keep your space warm, inviting and casual no matter the size. Your island can serve as a multipurpose spot for cooking and prepping while guests hang out during get-togethers.
