Modern kitchens are generally built to give convenience and fulfillment in our hearts. It gives you easy access while enjoying what you love doing – cooking. However, not all kitchens are built that way. No worries, there are easy additions you may want to consider in rebuilding and maximizing your cooking area.
1. Kitchen Island
Add storage, style, and extra seating with a standalone kitchen island. Kitchen islands are a great way to add more seating and counter space. Many cooks also use the island as a staging area for large meals. The centralized location allows for easy movement around the kitchen without crowding out guests or helpers.
2. Wall Oven
A wall oven is an oven unit that is installed higher on the wall in your kitchen rather than on the floor. Since they’re higher up they make everything from checking on dishes to pulling food in and out of the oven much easier. A 2-compartment wall oven will provide you extra baking space and the availability of convection or rotisserie options.
3. Pot and Pan Racks
If you want to free up more space in your kitchen, you might want to consider getting wall-mounted racks to keep your most-used pots and pans within easy reach. Not only that it makes everything organized but saves your time looking for what you need.
4. Cabinet Organizers / Pull Out shelves
Often the biggest problem with kitchen cabinets is the ineffective use of space. Keep your kitchen clutter-free by considering having pull out shelves and other organizers built into your kitchen cabinets. The right kitchen cabinet organizers can make your kitchen more efficient and your cabinets more accessible.
5. Ventilation System
Let’s all agree, any food that smells so good won’t smell good as it is after hours or days. The smell is left in the kitchen and we don’t want a house that stinks. While some have windows, why not upgrade your kitchen’s ventilation system? With the right ventilation system, odors and other contaminants can be a not much of a problem.
