small-kitchen-designs will help outline some of the most critical parts of your kitchen planning, whether large or small so it ultimately will work for your needs.
The kitchen is probably the busiest place in most homes. Meals are prepared and served here, and much thought and planning needs to be put into the organization of several work areas in the kitchen.
It is recommended that a close triangle between the stove, refrigerator and sink be formed, so you aren't having to walk long distances between each of them. That becomes more important the older you get or if you have a physical handicap.
Around each appliance you should have a work station atmosphere. Drawers that hold pot holders, pots and pans, & lids should be near the stove.
Glasses near the sink, and dishes in a convenient space near the table are recommended. Cupboards with cooking staples, and pantry need to be figured into the planning of this critical area of the house.
There are several specific topics to discuss in relation to the kitchen. Among these would be:
- Kitchen Cabinets
- micro wave oven
- Oven - How many will you have?
- Wall oven/s
- Range Hood
- Bar or island
- Verticle Cookie Sheet storage
- Work communication center
On this website we will discuss most of these areas in more detail, on separate pages.
Having lived in several homes over the years, we have experienced many kitchen designs, and these pages will give some of our perspective in addition to what is available in building your home-built4u. As always, we hope our experience can help you in choosing what you will be happy with in your new home.
This pix included a china closet arrangement beside our regular cupboards. On the opposite wall we have a similar glass faced cupboard to store cook books in. It's just above my organizer desk area.
