No matter how big or small your kitchen is, storage is important. When you think about a busy household with no time to spare, it’s even more important. Including plenty of storage options makes it easier to find what you need, reduces clutter, and makes it easier to keep your kitchen sparkling clean. There are plenty of storage options out there or you may want to have customized storage solutions created that address the specific needs of your kitchen.
The kitchens of today aren’t just there for a single purpose. They’re there for kids to do their homework, mom to enjoy a cup of coffee before a long day, and for the entire family to dine together. Consider the functions of your kitchen and add the most important elements. For your family, this may mean a built-in desk or extra seating.
Parents have long had the same complaints about the combination of having kids and cooking: Right in the middle of dinner, the kids inevitably walk in and search for a drink or snack. If you lay out your kitchen correctly, you can have separate drink and snack stations that allow them to get what they need without getting under your feet. This might include an off-to-the side cabinet or even a small fridge under the counter.
If you have pets then you’ll want to consider them as you’re designing your kitchen. This may include nothing more than finding cabinet storage for their food and supplies, or it may be more involved and include a built-in for their food and water bowls or even a small space to put their bed.
The idea of a brand new, generously sized kitchen sounds great in theory, but if not designed the right way it can lead to one big problem: Being impossible to clean. When you’re dealing with a room like this, that you know is going to be high-traffic, you need materials and surfaces that are easy to clean.
Using kitchen tiles from Mission Tile West is a great way to ensure that your kitchen is functional, beautiful, and easy to clean. These non-absorbent tiles are great options when you prioritize the health of your family and the ease of cleaning.
