Planning Solid Oak Kitchens: Important Measurements & Positioning Part 2
If you are currently in the midst of planning your new kitchen, it is of upmost importance to ensure that you make the most of every inch of space available, whilst not falling into one of the many design traps that could make solid oak kitchens more frustrating and less efficient to work in.
In the first of our ‘Important Measurements & Positioning’ information guide, we discussed a range of considerations, and here are six more:
For convenience when cooking, keep your utensils and pots and pans near the oven/hob. A wood kitchen cutlery tidy can help keep your utensils organised.
Carefully consider the positioning of wood wall cabinets so that they do not block lines of sight in the kitchen. If positioned too close to a window, they may block out precious natural light.
If your kitchen windows open inwards rather than outwards, consider the position of your sink carefully so that they do not hit the tap.
Unless there is no alternative, never place sinks or ovens in a corner or directly next to a wall, as it will disrupt work flow and limit the available workspace.
Consider tall kitchen cabinets with larder wirework to provide easy access and a clear overview of the contents.
