Kitchen Storage Tips

A well-designed kitchen is laid out and planned with comfort and function kept in mind at all times. The layout will affect the person who does the cooking the most. That person needs to have a space that fits with his or her cooking style and needs. This will also determine the appliances to be installed. The appliance like dishwasher, built in oven, microwave, grillers, bar-be-que, deep fryers are not just restaurant items, they have made their way in home kitchen..
Also keep in mind the guests and your parties at home. If all the ladies get together at kitchen during any party, think of an open kitchen.
This allows the cook to be a part of the festivities without having to miss out on anything. If a family likes to keep their guests separate from the kitchen area, in case of cooks cooking, then the layout of the kitchen will lean toward more of an enclosed separate space.
Eliminate dead storages, that means eliminate all high storages or soffits. It’s good to have things moving in the kitchen. Dead storage in kitchen leads to lot of blocked energies and pests as well.
