Additional Fridge Space
For those that are serious about entertaining then having easy access to extra fridge space can make your life so much easier.
Installing mini fridges under the centre island can be a clever way to create space and to keep appliances out of sight. Taking this into consideration while you are designing your kitchen can save you a lot of money in the future.
Having spices and condiments on hand while cooking can help you be more effective in the kitchen. When designing a kitchen we look at ways to maximise storage space and come up with smart uses for draws.
This also free's up more space in your pantry so you don't have to dig through the cereal and pasta to get to that spice you are needing.
Large Wall Oven
Having an oven in a kitchen goes without saying, but the benefits of having a large wall oven are numerous. Firstly you can cook several dishes at once in a larger oven or even fit in that roast with enough room to get good even heating.
Secondly you don't have to bend down to try and get your dinner out, this is great for safety as well, when retrieving heavier dishes. Planing the wall space and your cabinets around a wall oven needs to be done from the start.
Extra Electrical Sockets
Having easy access to electrical plugs can increase your options for where you store bench top appliances and help reduce clutter. Building in discrete plugs in to your bench top is a handy trick for when you are cooking up a storm and need to spread out to use multiple appliances.
Firstly as wine lovers we might be a little bias on this one, and to be fair you could store your beer in the extra fridge space we mentioned at the start.
Building in space for a wine fridge into your kitchen can add a real level of sophistication and wow factor to your new kitchen.
