Are you getting the most of your kitchen design?
There’s a knack to sussing out how to get the most out of the space you have in your home, especially in the kitchen. To ensure that you’re not leaving any part of your cooking area unused and you’re utilising the area in the best way possible, here are three savvy space-saving kitchen design solutions.
Full height cabinets
It’s no secret that cabinets are a must in any cooking area. However, if your space is seriously lacking in square footage and you’re keen to make the most of the room you have available, a traditional style kitchen with separated lower and wall mounted cupboards might not be the best use of your space. In this case, you could include some full height kitchen cabinets. Usually, these tall cupboards extend from the the floor all the way up to the ceiling, and you can often choose how it’s assembled. For example, you might like to have it as one long shelved cupboard or you could break it up with a mixture of smaller cupboards, perhaps leaving space for an integrated appliance, such a microwave.
Curved corner units
Although typical, straight-edged units may suit certain types of kitchen, they might not be the ideal fit for your cooking area. As an alternative, you could opt for curved corner units instead. Due to their arc-shaped design and absence of protruding corners, these units can help you make the most of the space you have without missing out on crucial storage opportunities. What’s more, curved corner units can also help promote the flow of the room, allowing you to move around your kitchen with ease.
Pull-out pantry cupboard
To maximise even the most awkward shaped spaces in your kitchen, you could install a pull-out pantry style cupboard. These units are ideal if you don’t have the space to go full size, and they’re perfect if you have an unused nook or cranny in your kitchen that’s going to waste. Normally, pantry cupboards can be drawn out by a handle, rather than having a hinged door that swings open like a regular cabinet. This means you don’t have to worry about factoring in extra space when you need to pull it open. Usually, pull-out pantries are fitted with internal shelving or racking from top to bottom, giving you the perfect place to organise and store all of your cooking essentials.
Regardless of the size of your kitchen, thinking about how you can max out the room you have available is a must.
