How to Create a Practical Kitchen in 4 Steps

 |  Furniture Tips

The most practical room in the house is the kitchen (except for a workshop!). It’s the room in which tasks are executed every day, such as food preparation, cooking and general cleaning. For many, it’s the heart of the house; it’s a place where the family/housemates/cohabiters will come together to catch up.

Due to the busy environment, and sometimes a lack of space, choosing to have a practical kitchen is the most efficient way to ensure ease of productivity and manoeuvrability.

Follow these 4 steps to create a practical kitchen using kitchen fittings and maximise on the space available.

  1. Hidden/Pop-up Sockets

Stop surfaces from getting cluttered with cables and plugs using pop-up sockets for kitchen worktops such as the EVOline Vertical USB Power Dock. The EVOline port slots away out of sight, and it has USB ports, eliminating adding plugs. This pop-up plug is IP54 rated to protect against splashes of water, and there’s a choice of finishes.

  1. Kitchen Corner Units

Choose a kitchen corner cabinet that offers a space-maximising kitchen corner solution. The carousel design ensures no space in the kitchen corner unit is wasted, and as it pulls out there is no more having to reach back into the unit to grab something! Also, having tiered shelves allows for the storing of more items.

  1. Practical Hettich Drawers

Drawers aren’t just for your dining knives and forks, they can be used to relieve some of your kitchen worktop space. The OrgaTray Drawer Knife Tray & Block is a knife tray drawer insert that provides a practical solution over using knife blocks on the kitchen counter.

  1. Cupboard Waste Bin

Move your bin out of sight – and out of the way – by choosing an under-sink bin. Pull-out bins are an ideal storage solution that is more practical, especially in a small kitchen. The Sige waste bin has separate compartments so you can split up your rubbish and your recycling quickly and easily.
