Kitchen Interior Design Ideas & Tips



The kitchen is the place where your day starts, your parties end and a place to go to for some chit chat over a hot cup of coffee. Whatever it is, the kitchen cabinet has to work for you 24 hours a day – no matter how many hours you actually spend in it!

A good kitchen is designed and planned according to your own kitchen ‘life’, meaning, everything should revolve around your own cooking habits, storage needs and even organised right down to the way the garbage is sorted!

Planning your kitchen cabinet design.

Start by dividing your kitchen cabinet into three main work zones – for cooking, storing and washing. For storing, make sure there is enough space allocated for the storage of food – both dry food and food that goes into the fridge.

For the cooking zone, place the kitchen hob near the sink for easy access to water when cleaning up. The workspace, which is the most important part of the kitchen cabinet, should preferably be placed between the hob and the kitchen sink; unless you have the luxury of having an island in your kitchen

Keeping things near where they are frequently used will help make your kitchen cabinet design really efficient. For most of us, the kitchen is the heart of the home. Some may only pop into the kitchen for a cup of tea, but for many, it is the room they spend a good part of the day – preparing, cooking or eating food. It also becomes the room where the family meet for informal meals and casual conversations.

Kitchen design is based on the four basic principles of storage, food preparation, cooking and eating. The design of any kitchen, no matter how large or small, has to take all these factors into account and create a space for each of these functions.

If you are a culinary connoisseur and you enjoy cooking, your kitchen needs to be practical and easy to work in. Practical does not mean that it needs to look clinical and boring!

Kitchen Interior Design Ideas & Tips


To make it efficient, make sure there is enough workspace around the hob and kitchen sink for your cooking utensils, chopping board and spices. The workspace is the most used area in the kitchen. Maximizing this space will ensure that there is a place for everything. Your kitchen worktop must also be able to stand the heat of hot plates and stain of spices and tolerate sharp objects.

Add open shelves and wall organisers or stainless steel racks to help clear your workspace and to keep things that you use often, such as spices, condiments and cooking utensils like whisks and ladles, close at hand. You can add roller shutters to these open shelves to have the option of closing it when not in use. Roller shutters are an instant space saver. They also work well in areas that are tricky for swinging doors. Pots and pans, cutlery and glasses should be within reach and stored at the right height.

A kitchen should not only be functional, it should look good and work even better!

Small Kitchen.

Designing a small kitchen is usually an interesting challenge and one needs to be creative when planning the space to be able to fit everything in. If you are working within a small space, put the limited space to maximum use through within-reach wall organisers, out-of-sight kitchen cabinets and you can even consider an extra kitchen workspace trolley.
