Get in the zone with a well-planned kitchen

01 April 2017
In some homes, the kitchen is a room for cooking, eating, talking, playing and more. Zoning helps avoid chaos. Meaning the whole family can hang out without getting in the way of the real business of running a busy kitchen.

Good light, space and organisation are ingredients that every cook craves. This cooking zone has them. Spotlights in the ceiling and an extractor hood provide direct light right where you need it. Rails on the walls hold pots and pans and other essential tools. And counter space on either side of the hob means you’re never short of somewhere to move a hot pan.

Food prep

A kitchen island gives lots of storage space and most importantly a large worktop for preparing the food. Station your sous chef here while you take care of the main cooking area and you’ll soon be running things like a pro.

Clean up

Rails and containers on the wall keep the counter clear, leaving more space to stack dishes. With the sink in the middle, you can have a clear system for cleaning up. Dirty dishes on one side, clean ones on the other.

Keep the dining things next to the table. Cutlery, glassware, tableware and linen all live happily ever after in this freestanding cabinet so the kids can set the table without running back and forth across the kitchen.
