The Elements of Modern Kitchen Design

Regarding modern kitchen design, several elements may easily be missing in older kitchens, or in those flat-pack kitchens popular with many builders. To truly enjoy working in the kitchen, you need to have one that is more than just functional. Hotel kitchens are available, but that doesn’t mean they have all the elements a modern kitchen should have.

In fact, many kitchens, commercial or not, are poorly designed. They may not have good lighting, or the food preparation area may not be located conveniently to the sink or the stove. While they still work and the person who does the cooking gets used to the inconvenience, they could be much better.

Inconvenience in a kitchen is not only annoying and frustrating; it is also tiring. If you continually walk from one end of the kitchen to the other to get what you want, it takes longer to prepare the meal.  If you have to dodge doors that open into your standing or walking space, it can cause bruises when you bump into them.

Based on expert advice from Kitchen Professionals are some elements of modern kitchen design:

  • A workspace that is appropriately designed so the above problems are addressed.
  • Lighting that gives you spotlights for preparation rather than dark corners or working in your own shadow.
  • Plenty of storage is in the correct places so that everything you need is on hand. Many housewives dream of a walk-in pantry or storage area for things not used daily.
  • Enough bench space to prepare meals so cooking for a more prominent family or entertaining is not tricky.
  • A pleasant look and feel. If you love colour and your kitchen is plain white or grey, you may hate being in it, no matter how functional it is.
