If you have a bespoke kitchen, you must be proud. This is by far the jewel in the crown when it comes to places of interest within your home.
But there is always room for improvement, even within a designer kitchen. Adding a few more features that provide storage and utility can make a big difference in how you use the room. Here are a few examples of extra useful features to include in your bespoke kitchen:
A narrow pull-out drawer
If you have some space that is too small for a full-size drawer, then you can get a narrow one. It is a great way to use that tiny bit of space between appliances and cabinets, where nothing else seems to fit. A slim pull-out drawer is a fantastic storage solution for those small slivers of space, where you can put cutlery, spice jars and utensils.
If you have a pet dog or a cat, you need to ensure the kitchen is well suited for their needs as well. You can have a built-in storage solution for pet food, where you can also place the dishes. You can, for example, get a slide-out panel for the dishes, which comes out during feeding time and stays hidden otherwise.
If you are a person who knows and loves wine, then make sure you leave some space for a wine refrigerator. They are available in different sizes and provide a stylish storage area with the added functionality of keeping your favourite drink cool and ready for enjoyment.
If you are an avid cook, you will greatly appreciate the added convenience of double ovens. You can use one of them as the main source for cooking, while the other serves as a plate warmer and further baking. When you separate the ovens from the burners, you get to install the cooktop on an island or somewhere else.
To further explore the idea of keeping the ovens elsewhere, a cooktop on the kitchen island is a prudent option. If the island is large enough, you will get plenty of surfaces, as well as room for some amenities. And if you are worried about a streamlined look, you can consider a downdraft exhaust system.
A kitchen is only as good as its lighting. You should consider layers of light with more than one fixture for each area. By having recessed ceiling fixtures, you can get plenty of light to shine down on your work surfaces. Pendant lights are also great, as they not only add style but are also quite good for providing the light you need.
If you have a large kitchen, then a second sink can be a great addition to it. It can be smaller than your main sink and located in the pantry area if there is one. It is very convenient when you want to rinse some vegetables or ice down some drinks.
Akitchen alcove turns into a nice home coffee station to get you that refreshing morning drink. All you need is an espresso machine, a drip coffee maker and some storage space for mugs and saucers. You can keep the coffee grounds, sugar and other coffee essentials on nearby shelves and drawers.
It is always a good idea to consider ways of making your bespoke kitchen more attractive and useful. The aforementioned additions can help you achieve that with ease.
