When it comes to countertops, not all materials are created equal. You take some time to consider your personal cooking style, which can determine the best material for your home. For example, for a messy cook who makes lots of sauces, we might recommend a quartz countertop, which resists staining, over marble, which is porous and will etch when oils and acids are spilled or splattered. For a client who tells us they love chopping vegetables, we could use a wood countertop that can actually be chopped on.
There might not be space for a commercial grade coffee machine with grinder, frother, and the works. Opt for a French press which you can leave on the stove instead. The same goes for other appliances such as microwaves, refrigerators, rice cookers, kettles, and ovens.
Determine your needs based on number of people in your household and how much you consume daily. A reduction in size does not mean a reduction in function or specifications. Shop wisely. Another great tip is to choose single bowl sinks instead of doubles. You can also switch to slimmer knobs and handles on drawers and cupboards for a sleeker look.
Be sure your kitchen is ready for entertaining. These days, kitchen spaces are more about entertainment than just a back room workshop. Open areas with fewer cabinets leave room for art, which makes a kitchen feel more like a living space. Hiding everyday appliances and making them handy for quick use is another nice touch.”
The simpler the better, and that clean, white lines married with open spaces are the way to go. Skip cabinetry, a scullery can provide storage for items like kitchen appliances and space for food prep, with a fully shelved pantry close by.
