Kitchens are often the heart of the home, therefore careful setting up is required to ensure a kitchen that’s both beautiful and highly functional. Here are 10 tips for creating a perfect kitchen in your home.

Make room for storage

The biggest mistake people make at the planning stage is not allowing for enough storage.  Interior designer Jacqui Hargrove says. “Use every nook and cranny. Put overhead cabinets right up to the ceiling, rather than leaving a gap on top that collects dust.” Consider deep drawers for easier access to pots and pans, and include enough storage for appliances that otherwise would clutter up countertops.

Proper lighting

Well-managed lighting plays a great role in making your kitchen better.   Highlight important areas of the kitchen with strategically installed lights. Use wall-mount lamps to illuminate work zones, such as the sink, island, and stovetop.

Suitable power sources

Be sure there are appropriate power sources for repositioned or new appliances. Many people realize too late that they don’t have the right gas or electric lines. It will help you to set all the electrical appliances in the kitchen comfortably.

Start fresh

Don’t reuse appliances or items from the old kitchen for your new kitchen. It may seem as if you’re saving money, but an old appliance will stick out like a sore thumb in a new environment. Find other ways to economize.

Safety first

Make your kitchen as safe and family-friendly as possible by planning for good visibility of the backyard and indoor play areas from the cooking area. The floor should be slip-resistant and the oven should be located at adult height to minimize the chances of accidental burns.

Plan for trash

Don’t forget to plan for garbage and recycling bins. This helps to make your kitchen clean and healthy. You can only have healthy food if you have a clean kitchen.

Arrange the range

Place a shelf beside or behind the range to keep cooking oils, utensils, and spices handy. Place S-hooks on the side of the range hood to hang frequently used pots and pans.

Store small appliances

Avoid an overly industrial look in your kitchen by hiding the microwave oven, toaster, blender, and other tabletop appliances in an appliance garage with a door.

Clear the bench

“If objects can be put away or stored out of sight, the kitchen will be a much better place to work. Go through all the things you have in your cupboards and then work out where they would best be placed in the new kitchen.

Accent with backsplash tile

A stylish backsplash not only looks great but also protects walls from messy splashes. Use glass tiles in a graphic mosaic pattern to add sparkle and personality.
