Things to Keep in Mind When Planning Your Kitchen Layout

Your kitchen is one of the most utilized areas in your home, and creating a good layout can significantly improve its appeal and functionality. There are many things to consider when it comes to your kitchen layout. Here are a few tips to keep in mind when planning your kitchen layout.

 Kitchen Layout

Size of Your Appliances

To make your kitchen layout more appealing and efficient, it’s important to consider the size of your appliances. Knowing how much space is available and ensuring your appliances fit will make your kitchen more organized. Moreover, well-fitted appliances can also reduce the amount of cleaning you have to do and prevent small objects from falling into tight spaces.

Proper Lighting

Lighting is another crucial factor to think about as it provides your kitchen with the necessary illumination needed to do your tasks. Without proper lighting, you are at risk of bumping into objects and injuring yourself when handling knives or other sharp tools. 

For kitchen lighting, recessed lights are the standard for many contemporary homes, but there are also other ways to provide your kitchen with proper illumination – such as hanging lights and chandeliers. Finally, lighting is also important in increasing the appeal of your kitchen. If you’re unsure of how to plan it, consult a kitchen or home remodeling expert.

Adequate Space for Movement

Kitchens are traffic-heavy areas, so it’s vital to have enough room to comfortably move around in them. Measure the space in your kitchen, and make sure your aisles are wide enough to fit one or two cooks depending on your needs. Remember the kitchen triangle concept, too. The stove, sink and refrigerator must be close to each other, but the space between these areas shouldn’t be too narrow.
