If you’ve ever watched the food channel, you’ve likely experienced kitchen envy. Wishing you had all the features they had at their disposal, making cooking and baking look so effortless and fun. But you know what, you too can have the perfect kitchen. Below are some features you can easily add to your kitchen to make it more functional.
1. Island Cooktop
Recent trends split up ovens and cooktops. When you install your cooktop on your island countertop, your workspace doubles or even triples as does your storage space. What’s even better is that you don’t have to stare at the wall while cooking. If you have an open plan, you can easily communicate with guests or even watch your favourite tv program.
If your kitchen doesn’t have enough natural light, you can install layers of light to cover each area. Hanging lights over the island can add some light to work surfaces while under-cabinet lights will provide proper light on countertops.
3. Corner Storage
Storage space is always a problem in the kitchen which is why you need to make every centimeter count. Make sure you use the space wisely so that nothing goes to waste. You can use a corner cupboard to store your groceries and if you want to get even more out of the space, add carousel shelving to easily access items at the back.
4. Divided Storage
Every kitchen has that one drawer where you’ll find all kinds of treasures. It’s a drawer that just never seems to stay organised and when you’re looking for something specific, it’s never there. Divided storage is great for storing your kitchen utensils and give a more finished look.
5. Bar Sink
Adding an additional sink to your kitchen can be extremely useful. Double your prep areas by installing a bar sink on your island.
6. Built-in Trashcan
Trashcans are gross, and no one likes to associate grossness with kitchens since that’s where you prepare your food. Consider hiding your trashcan in a built-in drawer.
7. On-counter Appliance Storage
Let’s face it, appliances aren’t necessarily pretty. And while you don’t want to store it away deep in your cupboards, you also don’t want to show them off. On-counter appliance storage is perfect for this scenario and should be incorporated in every kitchen.
