The kitchen is one of the busiest rooms in the house. It's used by both guests and family members often. We want our kitchen to be attractive but also useful and safe. Here are some tips to make your kitchen a safer and more efficient place to be.
Take some time and think about the type of flooring that you want. You most definitely do not want carpet because that would be very difficult to clean. But consider how easy or hard it will be to clean when considering the type of flooring to purchase. Most people put tile on their kitchen floor. There are so many different types that it's hard to even go into in this article. Pick up a kitchen book or go online to see examples of the different types of tile floors you can use in your kitchen.
Lighting is very important in your kitchen. Most people have track lighting in the kitchen, but add some lights above your sink, stove and kitchen table. Have plenty of electric sockets so that you can use your accessories where ever you need them. Just make sure you don't have them too close to water.
There are many types of sinks to choose from. Again, I suggest you take a look at magazines or take a trip to your local hardware store for ideas. You most likely will want to have two sinks if you have the room. Spend some time deciding on the right faucet. Make sure you get a faucet that hangs well over into the sink and is a good height. You should also make sure you have a sprayer. There are faucets that have a detachable sprayer.
Store the things you use the most close to where you use them. For instance, store your pots and pans close to the stove. Keep your cooking utensils close to the stove also. If you use lots of spices when cooking, you should have a lazy susan spice rack to keep them neat and handy.
You'd be surprised at how such small things can make such a big difference in your kitchen. Look into purchasing a couple lazy susans. Lazy susan turntables have evolved into a whole array of revolving shelves. They are made from a variety of materials to suit the needs of all: plastic polymers, wire, and even wood-for those seeking the ultimate chic.
If you need more space, a lazy susan turntable is the best choice. Lazy susan turntables exist in two- and even three-tier variety to give extra storage space on your counter top.
