Is your kitchen functional or just pleasing to the eye? Or neither?
Well, kitchen design requires both for maximum enjoyment and use. Your kitchen should look inviting (good cabinetry, paint, tile and countertops) and be very functional to make your life easier and efficient.
To pinpoint how functional your current kitchen is - think about a few things. How long does it take to you find the items you need? Is it difficult to get into the back of your cabinets? Do you find food products in the pantry that have spoiled and/or expired before you had the chance to use them? Do you ever double or triple purchase items because existing ones are in the back of deep dark cabinets and you do not realize they are there? Is it easy to clean, organize and reach all areas of your cabinets? Do you often feel like you're out of space?
All kitchens should have functional cabinetry with slide-out drawer and shelf solutions for storing all modern kitchen appliances, cookware, utensils/tools, sauces, spices, beverages and food. You may already have kitchen drawers, but have you considered retrofitting your existing traditional cabinets and pantry with made-to-fit pull-out shelving or cabinet organizers?
