Your kitchen is undoubtedly one of the most important rooms in the home. It often becomes the central hub of activity and family life, and should therefore have one of the most pleasant outlooks and aspect of all.
Whilst often it is necessary for the kitchen to overlook outside play areas, if there is any chance of an additional view as well, make the effort to obtain it for this area. The kitchen is usually the busiest and most important work and preparation area in the entire home so take your time to consider what your own priorities are in a kitchen.
Be sure your kitchen has good natural lighting and ventilation, as well as adequate power points and artificial lighting (for evenings).
The kitchen could overlook the family and meals area.
The kitchen design should have adequate bench space for entertaining as well as everyday cooking.
There should be enough space for a few people to work in the kitchen at the one time.
The refrigerator, cooktop, wall oven, microwave oven and sink should be positioned so as to provide the best workability for the kitchen design. Typically the cooktop, sink and refrigerator are the items used most so they are best positioned opposite each other, roughly in the form of an equilateral triangle.
Pantries are exceptionally handy and should be as large as possible.
