According to Kitchen Professionals when it comes to kitchens, most women want one that is functional but also looks good. These days this is one of the most important rooms in the house. Instead of being tucked away where no one can see it like it used to be years ago, the kitchen has now evolved to become the epicentre of the home – and so it should be.
Every woman wants a lovely kitchen that is also practical. Having the latest appliances such as refrigerator, stove and dishwasher is also good, but if they are not in the right place for the best functionality, and if the cupboards are hard to get at, or incorrectly positioned to make cooking inefficient then the whole kitchen is spoiled.
That is why when you are renovating the kitchen or building a new home it is better by far to get the kitchen designed by a professional company that does it for a living. An architect cannot be trusted to design the kitchen in a way that is totally practical because they tend to go for looks rather than practicality. The builder just follows the building plans so you can’t expect him to design a good kitchen.
And of course, even though most women have had experience cooking in a number of different kitchens and know what works when they are using it, they may not know what does not work – until it is too late and they go to use their new kitchen. They then realise that the preparation area is not handy to the sink or the stove, or else the cupboards are not that easy to access.
