Kitchen Comfort

Your kitchen is the center of your home. All things food, meals, entertaining, and even homework are based in the kitchen. What is the best layout for you?

When planning your remodel or new home, remember your kitchen’s busiest areas: the sink, stove, and refrigerator. Make sure these areas and appliances are in an efficient location that is relevant to one another. Many designers refer to this as the kitchen “work triangle,” as the relation of these to one another typically resembles a triangle. However, this may not be an ideal set up for you depending on your needs or available space. Appliances further spaced apart allow for extra cooks in the kitchen.

Counter space is one of the most important elements of your kitchen, so don’t compromise! Extend your counter work space by using decorative corbels, or shelving supports, to create added room for your counter top. Counters can also double as homework space or a desk. Consider your morning routine, how important is a coffee bar or designated breakfast area? The morning rush can be eased with all your essentials in one place for a grab-and-go routine.

Even if you’re the DIY type, consulting a kitchen design expert before starting your project can ease the renovation anxiety. We can help you to fine-tune your remodel plan, offer tips and advice, and maybe even recommend some ideas you had not already considered. The designers at Hunter Roberts Homes can help guide you in the process.
