How to Make a Better KitchenPosted by at January 18, 2011 in Home Improvement | Interior Design | kitchen
Do we have a kitchen in our house? Have we felt comfort with our kitchen now? Eating will never go out of fashion. And we will always need a place in the home where we can easily and safely prepare our food, so we need a better, safer and more efficient kitchen to work in. It is very important for us to know how to make a better kitchen.
To make it come true, some studies have shown that lighting is probably the most important thing to get right. Strip or spotlights located under wall unit work best to provide good, unobtrusive lighting. Then, hard wearing flooring that’s easy to clean is essential, too. Carpeting on floors surrounding kitchen worktops is a big mistake. Besides, electric sockets in abundance will make life so much easier. But remember to keep them at least a meter from any source of water, to maintain the safety in our kitchen.
Next, we must have all our regularly used utensils stored close to the areas where they will be used. This increases efficiency and reduces accidents. After that, we should think and choose the right type of kitchen sink that’s best suited for us. They come in all shapes, double or single, and in a variety of materials. The type of taps on our sink is quite important too. Get taps with plenty of height. The swiveling type adds flexibility, but it is better the look of double taps. We should really think what we want.
Moreover, we have to keep children out of our kitchen. Toddlers have greater ingenuity than we give them credit for. Fit any cupboard or drawer they can reach with childproof catches. Store all sharp objects such as knives, etc, high up in a locked drawer. So, by doing all of these things, we can really make sure that our kitchen is a better, safer and more efficient place for us to work in.
