Designing Your Kitchen for Comfort

Your kitchen is the heart of your home. It is where the family gathers to prepare and eat meals, talk about their day, or leave notes on the fridge. You want to make sure that this room is comfortable to be in and used effectively. There are many aspects of your kitchen remodel to consider if you want your kitchen to be as comfortable as possible.

Kitchen Cabinets

Some kitchen cabinets are difficult for people to reach due to height or physical limitations. You can design your new kitchen to allow for comfortably accessing all of your cabinets. Lower cabinets can be made more accessible with pull-out shelving and organization. Upper cabinets can be more accessible with lazy susans or spaces designed for use with a step stool.

Counters

It is also important that your kitchen counters are the appropriate height for your use. The average height of counters may be too tall or too short, depending on your limitations and height. A good contractor will be able to help you determine the best height for your kitchen counters and cabinets. You can also make sure that your countertops are made of a durable material that will be easy to clean and maintain.

Islands

Islands can be a great way to add comfort and space to your kitchen. An island gives you more cabinet and drawer space in your kitchen. It also gives you a place to set bar stools or high chairs for the family to gather in the kitchen, or you can use them as food preparation surfaces when preparing big family meals or when baking.
