The Essentials For A Practical Kitchen

A good workflow, enough storage and ease of motion are the three essentials for a quality kitchen.  We draw upon the experts at Blum to explain their ‘dynamic space’ philosophy.

Essential One: Workflow

A well organised kitchen will save you time and energy. Blum believe your kitchen should be divided into five zones, according to activities.

  • Consumables
  • Non-consumables
  • Cleaning
  • Preparation
  • Cooking

All that you need for each activity zone should be contained within that area – so for instance food in the consumable zone, utensils in the food preparation zone.

Essential Two: Spaces

Once you have your zones organized, look at giving your workflow area easy access by utilising clever storage and access systems.

The amount of storage space you will need will depend on the size of your kitchen and your lifestyle.

Make the most of your available space with deep drawers, box storage and vertical storage solutions.
