Three Tips for a More Efficient Kitchen
Determine Your Needs
Do you normally cook dinner alone, or do you cook with someone else while your children gather in the area? Do you normally go out or to other people’s homes for dinner, or is your home the go-to gathering spot for your friends or family?
Answering these questions can help you determine if you should expand your current kitchen, rearrange some of your appliances, or start from scratch and create something completely new. The addition of a kitchen island, for example, might be exactly what you need to keep the kids close by while they work on homework and you cook dinner. On the other hand, removing a kitchen island that’s almost never in use could be the perfect way to open up your kitchen and make room for additional countertop space, appliances, or anything else you’ll use on a daily basis.
Of course, if you come to Kiba Studios for your kitchen remodel, our design experts will be able to help you create something that perfectly suits your needs!
Consider Your Storage Needs
Kitchen cabinets are one of the most important elements of your kitchen, and it’s important to ensure that they give you plenty of room and allow you find exactly what you need. Before picking a style and size, take a moment to think about your current and future needs. If you have young children, for instance, then you may want to invest in larger custom cabinets that can accommodate more groceries as they get older. On the other hand, downsizing your kitchen cabinets to make room for a bigger island or a completely new layout could be ideal if you’re not currently pressed for space.

Give Yourself Plenty of Countertop Space
Every inch matters when it comes to how you use your kitchen, and you don’t want to have too much or too little counter space. For some homeowners, the thought of downsizing their countertops to make the entire kitchen more spacious is tempting. However, you should always consider that less isn’t more when it comes to your countertops — in many cases, extending what’s actually there can make it easier to keep everything you need close by. Also, be sure to keep in mind that your sink is one of the most important points in the entire kitchen, so even if you do decide to downsize elsewhere, include plenty of counter space around your sink at the very least.
