Speaking of appliances, when was the last time you updated your sink or oven range? Consider your cooking style and try to emphasize one or two elements that will make your life easier. For example, you may not need an 8-burner, commercial-grade stovetop, but if you like to prep food well in advance for parties or storage, a large refrigerator to hold party trays and an extra freezer for storing pre-cooked meals could save you a headache on a regular basis. In the photo below, the kitchen forms a triangle with two refrigerators as the primary elements.
Two-Tone Kitchen Countertops. For a custom, high-design look, choose two different countertop surfaces for your kitchen. This look was once exclusively used by chefs and bakers who preferred a designated, cold marble countertop in one section for rolling dough and stainless steel for the rest of the kitchen counters for clean up ease. Take inspiration from the professional cook’s practical countertop two-tone approach to create a one-of-a-kind kitchen.
Patterned Kitchen Countertops. If you like the contemporary feel of sleek, minimalist cabinets, add visual interest with patterned kitchen countertops. Some great kitchen countertop ideas for pattern include the use of striped stone materials or textures like Caesarstone’s Concetto series.
Planning an efficient path like this through your kitchen, and based on the way you and your family use your kitchen, will streamline your life in ways you hadn’t even imagined. Those little details can add up to a big relief when you aren’t bumping into things and constantly moving back and forth to prep all your meals.
