5 Tips to Make Your Kitchen More Efficient & Functional
There’s something about a clean and bright kitchen that inspires us to cook or bake something special for our loved ones. We spend a lot of time in the kitchen each day, so it's natural to notice signs of wear and tear and areas that could be improved.
While preparing meals can be rewarding, it can also be tiring, especially if you're responsible for cleaning up afterward. If you're ready to upgrade your kitchen, prioritizing essential items and optimizing storage are just a few of the things you can do. Remember—working efficiently in a functional space can save time and allow you to focus on other tasks, or simply relax.
How to make your kitchen more efficient and functional
Maximizing your cabinets and drawers is a great start, but consider incorporating additional storage options such as hanging racks, corner shelves, and niches for frequently used items. If you have an empty wall in the kitchen, you can turn it into a vertical storage center by installing hooks and rods, where you can keep utensils, spice jars, and towels, to name a few.
2. Consider buying a new kitchen sink.
A brand-new kitchen sink can spruce up the overall look of your cooking area and improve the functionality of the space. When it comes to buying a kitchen sink, it’s important to consider the size, material, and type of sink to invest in.
Look into drop-in or undermount kitchen sinks to help you achieve a streamlined aesthetic. In addition to this, it also allows you to wipe water and food debris from the countertop to the sink swiftly. While looking at undermount sinks, make sure you also decide if you need a double or single bowl sink – both of which have their own set of pros and cons. The former lets you wash and rinse separately while the latter offers more space for getting things done. KOHLER has options you can look into, and in varying sizes, too.
3. Check if you need a new faucet.
A new kitchen sink pairs well with a new faucet. When shopping for a new faucet, ensure that it goes well with the size of the sink and that the spout reaches the sink’s center. Take into consideration the sizes of your cooking essentials as well. You must be able to wash dishes, pans, and pots easily without bumping the faucet. KOHLER’s kitchen mixers come in different finishes and features so you have options. It’s best to purchase the sink and faucet at the same time so you can be sure of the measurements.
4. Save on cleaning time.
Well-thought-out design and shopping decisions can make cleaning your kitchen easier. Choose finishes that don’t get dirty easily and install essentials that help catch or prevent spills. The MORAINE series of KOHLER includes an Anti-Splash Wall you can purchase as well as a colander and cutting board. These additions may seem minor, but make cleanup easy-peasy.
5. Invest in the right appliances.
Your kitchen will surely be functional if you have durable appliances that can help you accomplish your tasks. A durable cooktop, a refrigerator, and an oven are just some of the essentials you need to have, but make sure you also invest in a range hood. A kitchen hood helps reduce smoke, steam, and odor in the kitchen and is worth the splurge. SANITEC has traditional and decorative wall hoods you can look into.
