During the last four years, we have lived in four different places. At the different apartments we have lived in plus with our current dwelling place I have encountered different kitchens in different sizes. While a large kitchen can be considered a luxury in our country I have realized the importance of an appropriately sized kitchen. If you have the space then maximize the space for you to have a nice kitchen. I don’t have to stress the importance of this as we prepare our foods three times a day. It doesn’t matter if you have a beautiful soapstone countertop as long as you have enough space to prepare your meals.
You also have to have enough countertop space to put those kitchen essentials like your microwave, toaster, blender, coffee maker, and so on. Aside from that, I think it’s also important to have, not only one, but two kitchen sinks. It will add convenience especially when you’re washing those large pots and pans.
Of course, you don’t only need countertop space and sinks. Another important thing is storage for your stuff. It’s not a luxury to have those overhead cabinets because you will really put those into good use. The last thing you need is a disorganized kitchen because you have run out of storage spaces.
