When it comes to kitchen design and layout many people feel that they need the walk in pantry that houses everything. This is a huge mistake in modern kitchen design.
In today’s world people are generally time poor and they need to get things done quickly and in tight time frames. The clever kitchen layout places everything exactly where you need it without having to run from one side of the kitchen to the other.
Great Kitchen Layout Ideas:
- Placing the oils and spices near the cooking area eliminates the need to walk to the panty every time you want to add a pinch of spice here or a drop of oil there..
- Placing the everyday condiments, spreads and breakfast cereals not in the pantry but in the appliance area that houses the toaster, electric jug etc which is located next to the cutlery and crockery make a huge amount of sense..
- Positioning the dishwasher next to or opposite a larger kitchen drawer system that houses all the crockery, cutlery, pots and pans for easy packing.
Remember a kitchen cupboard only has a bottom and middle shelf and everything is only accessible at the front. Kitchen drawers with full extension runners give you great storage, greater access and ease of use. So next time you are thinking of kitchen designs and kitchen layout, think of drawers rather than cupboards. This way you can make the most of your usable space and create a large amount of kitchen storage space.
