A kitchen may look beautiful, but if it is not practical then it’s of no use. A dynamic kitchen should have sufficient space, allow motion and offer a good workflow. Solutions such as custom corner cabinets can be tailored to the specific needs of the kitchen and allow for optimal storage, even in those hard-to-get places.
A functional kitchen should be tailored to the needs of the users. As part of a successful kitchen, meal preparation and workflow are important when ensuring that distances between appliances and counter spaces are as short as possible, allowing the user to move around the kitchen space easily and quickly. To save time and energy, you should divide your kitchen into five zones, namely consumables, non-consumables, cleaning, preparation, and cooking.
The meal preparation zone is considered the main work area and therefore for optimal space, should be 90cm wide. This is to ensure that you have enough worktop space, making cooking easy and enjoyable.
Your design consultant will ensure that everything in your kitchen is easily accessible. Equipping base units with pull-outs instead of doors will prove to be far more ergonomic. In addition to this, we’ll organise your cabinets and drawers so that you have good visibility of the contents as this will make your life much easier as well as save time when busy in the kitchen.
Storage space is important. The amount of storage space you need will depend on your cooking and shopping habits, as well as the size of your household and your overall lifestyle. To maximise your storage space when doing home renovations or updating your kitchen design, you can use cabinets that offer greater depth, width, and height while pull-out drawers with high side panels allow you to make the most of the space without having to change the size and shape of your kitchen.
