Designing a fantastic kitchen can be quite a challenge. It’s one of the most important rooms in any home and should be functional yet comfortable. There are numerous design elements to consider, from appliances to countertops to cabinets and backsplash. Creating a design you love can be overwhelming, with so many choices available. However, a few essential kitchen design elements can be useful in just about every kitchen, no matter its size or style.
The efficient use of space is critical for a great kitchen design. Most people add dishes and tools to their kitchen over time, so it’s best to have plenty of room to accommodate future storage needs. To make the most of your space, corner storage is a must. Corner cupboards, tiered lazy susan shelving, and more can be a great place to house extra kitchen cookware and small appliances.
The pantry is an essential kitchen design component for a good reason. You can store almost anything in your pantry, including cleaning supplies, snacks, dry and canned goods, and tools. Before installing your pantry, however, you should consider how you plan to use the space to maximize your particular design.
Instead of under-counter cupboards with little shelving, deep drawers are becoming increasingly popular elements of kitchen design. Toe-kick pull-out drawers also use the space between the floor and the under-county storage to keep items like trays and dog bowls out of sight.
Every lighting fixture in your kitchen should have a purpose. Each kitchen niche should be lit, as should every area with kitchen appliances. Recessed lighting, under-cabinet lighting, and pendant lighting can all add dimension to your kitchen design and guarantee that you won’t be operating any devices in the dark.
Ample Cooking Space
Another must-have for your kitchen design is ample cooking space, especially around the stove. No matter the size of your kitchen, you will want everything within easy reach. A cooktop along the wall or on an island can also lend ample counter space.
If you aren’t sure which features to add to your kitchen design, consider these elements that will undoubtedly add function and space to your kitchen.
