A messy kitchen can lower the satisfaction you get from a beautifully cooked meal. Your kitchen layout might be the cause of your messy tendencies. After all, you’re more likely to make a mess if you have to scuttle back and forth from one area to another.
In such cases, some kitchen remodeling might do your meal preparations some good. Professional kitchens are the first thing that come into mind when you think about a clean kitchen and you can take some inspiration from their layout to make yours more efficient. Gaspard Construction lists some of the ways you can make your kitchen cleaner and more efficient, just like a professional kitchen.
The Work Triangle
The key to having an efficient kitchen is eliminating the need for a cook to take physical steps by designing the layout around a work triangle. The fridge, the sink and the range are each located at one of three points. Placing these three close to each other will ensure your workflow isn’t interrupted.
Chefs divide their kitchen into stations that are devoted to a particular task, eg., prep and dishwashing stations. The average home kitchen isn’t big enough to be divided into actual stations, but you can designate mini-stations around kitchen appliances, i.e., your sink can be your dishwashing area and the area near your cutlery could be the prep area.
Speaking of sinks, whether it’s for kitchen or bathroom remodeling, it couldn’t hurt to get a bigger sink, especially if two or more people are using the kitchen.
Stainless Steel Cutlery and Appliances
Apart from their efficiency, professional kitchens are known for a monochrome theme stemming from their prominent use of stainless steel equipment. However, this isn’t a conscious design choice; chefs use stainless steel because they don’t stain and bacteria can’t seep into their surfaces. Getting stainless steel equipment can give your kitchen that monochrome look while making it more hygienic.
