5 Golden Rules To Remember While Designing Your New Kitchen

We know that you must have put a lot of thought in all the visual aspects of your kitchen designs, but have you thought about the really important technical ones? Let’s take a look at 5 golden rules to remember while designing your kitchens:

 

1. Laundry and sink by the window

The most important golden rule that you need to remember while designing your kitchens is that the sink and the laundry machine – basically everything that comprises of the wet parts of your kitchen – needs to be directly linked to the window opening. This is because sunlight kills off the water-borne bacteria naturally.

 

2. Measure for your in-builts

Many homeowners these days are preferring the compact kitchen layout that comes from going for built appliances, but very few of them know this technical aspect: you have to decide which fridge or oven you want before finalizing the design. Appliance dimensions are not generic – they are customized according to the company specifications. The fridge you choose later may not end up fitting the place you’ve designed for it.

 

3. Open your kitchens to a view

While more and more Singaporeans are opening up to the idea of open kitchens these days, very few of them know how to do it right. The most important thing to remember here is to open your breakfast countertop to a view, so that whenever you’re working or eating or even standing there, you’ll feel like the whole house is open and welcoming in front of you.

 

4. Electrical points for the small gadgets

One functional aspect that many homeowners tend to overlook in favour for aesthetics is having enough electrical points for small gadgets. Imagine wanting to plug-in your grinder or juice machine but not having a socket nearby. The kitchen is largely comprised of these electronics, so it’s more imperative than ever to have enough electrical points to accommodate all of them.

 

5. Work on the work triangle

Finally, the last golden rule for kitchen design always means making the best ‘work triangle.’ This is the connection between the fridge, the hob, and the sink. They all need to be close by but adequately far apart for the worker to efficiently move around the space. If even one of these elements is far from the rest, you’ll have a lot of disruptions on your hand during the cooking process.
