While all the large design aspects of a kitchen remodel are being constantly upgraded thanks to ever-growing trends and materials, very people appreciate some of the small details that make such spaces both functionally and stylistically relevant. So, here are 5 small kitchen design additions that will make your life easier:
1. A small extra towel storage
If you’ve ever done cooking preparations, you’ll understand how washing hands can become a common ritual during the whole food making process. You’ll also appreciate the presence of handy towels throughout your kitchens. This is why having a small towel storage rack in the corner of your kitchen can make a huge difference in your daily cooking routine.
2. Open cutlery shelves
Another way to make your life incredibly easy in the kitchen is by designing open shelves for all the cutlery and other daily use items such as coffee mugs, chopping boards, wok stands, and more. These don’t have to take up a lot of space – just a three-tiered combination like the one featured in this image is enough for the most necessary kitchen items.
3. Extra light for style and functionality
Yes, the kitchen is a fully functional space, but that doesn’t mean that you get to forgo the style part completely – especially when it comes to lighting. In fact, you can make it a highlight of your kitchen by opting for stylized pendent or wall lights that are installed artistically over areas that aren’t overshadowed by the cabinets. You can even match their colours and accenting with the overall theme of your kitchen interior!
4. A compact pullout pantry
Fully closed off pantries that are installed inside an entire room are so last decade – and extremely unfeasible for the small-style real estate that is characteristic of Singapore. Instead, you can install tall compact pullout-out pantries inside your kitchens where you can easily slide them out, take whatever you need, and slide them back inside without any hassle at all.
5. Siding doors hiding cooking essentials
When it comes to kitchen remodels, people typically go for cabinets with conventional doors. But here’s a small secret that can save you a lot of hassle: going for sliding cabinet doors is a better, more ergonomic choice. You can simply slid them open, hang hardware for utensils on them, and store all of your cooking paraphernalia in a straight line for easy accessibility.
