Many people while designing the home overlook the proper planning of the kitchen. As a result one of the most parts of a home i.e. kitchen misses many important amenities. The result of not having proper amenities means you have a space of which you are not utilizing properly.
The kitchen is important for providing proper nutrition to your family. If the kitchen misses the key amenities, cooking will be difficult and hence the purchase of junk food may increase, which may finally inversely affect the wellness of the family.
So, while planning the home, you should pay attention to designing the kitchen properly so that it can provide you with the facilities that will facilitate good health.
First of all, before discussing how to design the kitchen for free meaning without paying any fee to the consultant or architect, some points to make the kitchen more useful will be discussed-
- The kitchen should have enough ventilation. The kitchen always acts as a heat chamber, this is because of the extra heat produced from cooking. Having enough ventilation allows transferring the heat to the outside which makes the cooking zone heaven instead of making it hell.
- Always put enough shelves in the kitchen. Keeping enough shelves will allow keeping utensils and other kitchen appliances in places from which the cooking will be an easy job. For example, placing the knife in a suitable position will help you to find it easily and cut your vegetables without worrying.
- Keep enough space for placing the chopping board and vegetables.
- Keep space for your kitchen refrigerators, oven and other electrical appliances.
- If you are using gas for cooking, do not forget to provide a window nearby your burner. This will prevent gas accidents.
The burner for the kitchen and other nearby areas should be so that, it is easy ro clean and maintain. This is because oils, grease will gather there and if it is of matte finish it will be difficult to clean.
