Smooth workflows, enough storage space and better motion in your kitchen - that's Blum's idea of the ideal kitchen. If you plan these things ahead of time, you'll have a kitchen that will be more enjoyable for years to come!
Workflow: all within reach
Think about putting away groceries, emptying the dishwasher, preparing food and cooking. Is there a lot of bending down, kneeling, digging through items in cabinets to find what you need? Do you walk back and forth, back and forth as you perform these tasks? With the right planning, you can put an end to these things and create a kitchen that's enjoyable to use for years to come!
Space: gain more storage space
We all have (basically) the same storage needs in the kitchen; what makes us unique though, are the priorities and quantities of our storage items. Knowing what items are used on a regular basis, versus only occasionally, will help when choosing your cabinets.
Motion: technology in motion
Not all drawer runners, hinges or lift systems are equal. Research different products and manufacturers to learn more about quality, manufacturing and testing standards – and then find a showroom to feel the differences for yourself.
