It goes without saying that a kitchen is one of the most fundamental aspects of a house. Well, at least for me, be it early in the morning or late in the night, I can be found in the kitchen finding something to snack on.
Well, apart from being a place for snacks, kitchens play other primary functions such as being a place for preparing and cooking a hearty meal. But most people are unaware of small yet significant mistakes that are causing their kitchens to be a lot less functional.
That’s why we’ve compiled a list of common kitchen mistakes as well as tips and tricks to avoid (or solve) them.
The First Blunder
The first and one of the biggest blunders is incorrect or miscalculated space planning. This is all the more crucial for tiny or cramped kitchens. For this blunder, designers from all around the country have suggested creating a floor plan on your iPad or computer. This allows you to get an exact idea of what and where you want everything.
The Second Blunder
Irrespective of whether your kitchen is fully modular or not, it is important to optimally utilize storage space. Most people avoid taking the time to actually find the correct size of appliances and cabinets. Incorrect or oversized items cause a number of issues such as inefficiency, difficulty (in finding or reaching items), etc.
That’s we suggest taking some time in measuring the space and then comparing it with the size of the cabinet(s). You can find the sizing of each product on our website in the description section.
The Third Blunder
Another major mistake that people make when designing or renovating their kitchen is not making it “spacious”. What I mean by spacious is spacious enough for more than one person. I’ve been to kitchens where I feel so cramped that it is impossible for even a single person to do anything.
In order to avoid such a blunder, one has to ensure that their kitchen is divided into sections. Each section will be pertaining to a different purpose such as the cooking area or the preparation area.
People whose kitchens are relatively smaller can invest in stack-on shelves to minimize space usage. For the dining space, they can go with a minimal design. For instance, something like the aesthetically-pleasing Paso Gateleg table which can perform multiple functions?
The Fourth Blunder
Lastly, you must avoid storing or purchasing “unnecessary” items. Now, the defnition of unnecessary can be different for different groups of people. Some who have bigger kitchens have the privilege of keeping stuff that may be of no use for people with smaller kitchens. It is recommended by designers to fully utilize your space but optimally and smartly. Because sometimes it’s okay to keep less.
The Bottom Line
In the end, your dream kitchen is up to you and your needs as well as your budget. Better planning can help you design your dream kitchen more effciently and effectively. Check out our amazing collection of functional items for your dream kitchen.
