What are the important design considerations for large kitchens?
While small kitchens can be more complicated to layout and design effectively, large kitchen design is just as important if you want to create a useful, practical and functional space. As a result, there are a number of considerations to bear in mind when it comes to large kitchen design. These include:
- Work-surface space
Storage design for large kitchens
Storage is important in any kitchen, and large kitchens tend to have more storage space in general, because of the additional space. But utilizing this storage space more effectively can make a dramatic difference to your kitchen overall. An additional kitchen island for example can add extra storage space to another area of your kitchen, which may be very beneficial for the type of activity or food preparation that you generally use this space for.
Seating design for large kitchens
Adding seating to large kitchen is generally expected. But you should take time and effort to consider where the best area for seating would be in your kitchen, and how this would relate to the general flow of your kitchen space. Corner seating and adding seating benches or booths can be a great option for some kitchens, while for others a formal dining area can be created effectively, without encroaching on the kitchen space. Kitchen islands and breakfast bars can also be considered for effective causal seating options.
Work surface areas in large kitchens
In a large kitchen you may have the luxury of using different parts of the kitchen worktop space for different purposes and this can be very beneficial for your daily routine. Adding a kitchen island with additional work surface space can also be a good option, and allow you some more flexibility when deciding on the sink placement and the draining surfaces.
