The kitchen is where many homeowners spend a lot of their time. Cooking may be fun, but it becomes a tedious task when the kitchen is not properly designed. If the furniture and equipment are not properly positioned, you’d have to walk back and forth to get something from here and there. A good kitchen arrangement goes a long way to having a satisfying cooking experience.
But before you call a custom home builder to improve your kitchen, you should know that you should not only rely on your own intuition. There’s a sweet science behind kitchen design that can guide you on your kitchen remodeling project, and the foundations for it were laid down by the Department of Agriculture as far back as 1949. It’s quite old but still effective until today.
Experts have devised systematic research to formulate the perfect design for kitchens, which can dramatically reduce the time and work you spend on kitchen activities. It’s a perfect remodeling project for people who want to boost their performance in the kitchen.
Let’s take a look at some of the key features that you definitely want to apply to your modern kitchen.
- A Workspace Near the Telephone
Cooking needs planning and preparation. You’re practically running your own restaurant here, so a small table near the telephone can help you plan every cooking session.
- Picture Window Across the End
Let the natural light bring extra space in your work area. The picture window allows natural light to shine over the work surface.
- A Cookbook Holder at the Cabinet
While some homeowners today prefer their cookbooks digital, others are old-fashioned and keep theirs in the cabinet. If you want to keep it old-fashioned and organized, use cabinets for storage.
- Revolving Corner Shelves
A good storage facility makes the kitchen organized and reduces the time spent finding a specific item. Revolving corner shelves make it possible to store heavy and frequently used food supplies.
