7 Ideas To Build The Best Kitchen For Your Home In Ghana

7 Ideas To Build The Best Kitchen For Your Home In Ghana

There is no exact formula for building a fitted kitchen—it is as much an art as it is a science. The key making it the kitchen of your dreams is to find a balance between form and function to create an inviting space where you want to spend your time. Here are seven ideas to help you do just that.

1. Think about your cooking habits.

There are many different shapes and styles of kitchens. You will want to consider your cooking habits and decide which will best fit your needs. How you intend to use your new kitchen will also determine where to put things such as outlets and light switches.

2. Include plenty of storage space.

Rarely does anyone complain that their kitchen has too much storage space. When designing your kitchen, make sure that there is plenty of built-in storage space in varying sizes, to accommodate everything from coffee cups to bulk-sized bags of rice.

3. And plenty of counter space.

Experts recommend at least 24 inches of counter space on one side of the sink and at least 15 inches of counter space on the side of the refrigerator with the handle. This will make everyday tasks such as washing dishes and putting away groceries much easier and more efficient.

4. Pick appliances before construction begins.

While most appliances come in standard sizes, it is much easier to design the cabinetry around the appliance than to retro-fit it.

5. Keep things in scale.

Oversized appliances will work in a larger kitchen, but a small kitchen demands small appliances. The same holds true for building materials such as floor tiles, countertops and backsplashes.

6. Don’t forget the cabinet hardware.

Wood cabinets are especially susceptible to damage from oil that is found on skin. Installing handles or pulls on cabinets and drawers will keep them looking new and prolong the life. Kitchen hardware also adds dimension and visual interest to the space.

7. Hire a professional to design your kitchen.

Most people are on a tight budget when building a home. If you have a limited amount of money, it is better to spend it to design a functional space with a solid foundation. You can always upgrade the countertop or appliances in the future when you have more money to spend.
