Kitchen Designing

Kitchen Design is an exciting but intricate process, as the kitchen is often considered the heart of the home. It needs to be functional, aesthetically pleasing, and accommodating to the household’s needs. 

Here are 13 essential tips to keep in mind when designing a kitchen:

Plan the Layout

Decide on the kitchen layout that suits your space and needs. Common layouts include the U-shape, L-shape, galley, and island kitchens. The layout should optimize work flow and functionality.

Consider Workflow

Create a logical work flow by placing the stove, sink, and refrigerator in a triangular formation. This “kitchen work triangle” ensures efficient cooking and food preparation.

Adequate Storage 

Plan for ample storage space. Use cabinets, drawers, and pantry solutions to keep the kitchen organized and clutter-free.

Quality Materials

Invest in high-quality materials for countertops, cabinets, and floors. Durable materials ensure longevity and ease of maintenance.


Adequate light is crucial. Combine ambient, task, and accent lighting to provide a well-lit and inviting space.


Proper ventilation, such as a range hood, is essential to remove cooking odours and maintain air quality.

Countertop Space

Ensure there is enough countertop space for food preparation, appliances, and meal staging.

Consider Ergonomics 

Design the kitchen with ergonomics in mind. Cabinets and countertops should be at comfortable heights, and there should be enough space for movement.

Material Selection

Choose materials that are easy to clean and maintain, especially for countertops and backsplashes.

Colour Scheme

Select a colour scheme that complements the overall style of your home and creates a welcoming atmosphere.

Island or Peninsula

If space allows, consider adding an island or peninsula for additional workspace, storage, and seating.

Personal Touch

Add personal touches like decorative hardware, unique backsplashes, or open shelving to make the kitchen your own.
