In home decor, people tend to focus on living room and bedroom. But in fact, frequency of use of kitchen and bathroom is very high. Especially kitchen, which is used for three meals a day at home. A good kitchen design will bring a lot of happiness into our lives. Today I will share with you some of pitfalls to avoid when designing a kitchen.
Before decorating kitchen, you should plan out habits of use, location of moving lines, and placement of items. There are a lot of electrical appliances in kitchen, so a sufficient number of sockets should be reserved. Avoid problems with magnification later. It's easy to create a safety hazard in the kitchen, such as an electric shock, so choose an outlet with a switch.
2. Insufficient lighting in kitchen
It is not enough to have only one lighting in kitchen: wall cabinets and hoods will block some of light, and countertop will become a dark area. It is recommended to install spotlights under wall cabinets. Saved me from a lot of trouble.
3. Wall cabinet not closed
The wall cabinet is not covered, and after a long time, a lot of dust and oily smoke accumulates, which is very difficult to clean. It is just as easy for bacteria to breed. Non-standard cabinets should take this into account and install it on a ceiling cabinet.
4. There is no water-retaining strip on countertop
The kitchen is a greasy and watery place. If there is no water-retaining tape on it, floor will often be greasy and damp. The water retaining strip can prevent objects from falling off, make it easier to clean and improve safety.
5. All floor and wall cabinets are partition cabinets
It is very important to think about storage in kitchen. Base cabinets and wall cabinets should not be partition cabinets with open doors. A lot of things not only cannot be delivered, but it is also inconvenient to take. Floor cabinets are recommended to be made with drawers and pull-out baskets. Thanks to dish racks, dividers, storage boxes, etc., everything is clear at a glance, many things can be stored and easy to care for.
