Workflow – everything where you need it
Kitchen planning begins here
To create a smooth workflow in the kitchen, it is important to ensure that distances are as short as possible and everything is just where it should be. Organized, full extension drawers in base cabinets bring the contents of the cabinet into full view for quick and easy access, while lift systems get doors up and out of the way.
Shortened distances for every kitchen
Consider everyday tasks
When planning a kitchen it is important to consider daily kitchen activities to make sure your kitchen is arranged in a way that will be easy to navigate. Click on the images below to see some examples.
Emptying the dishwasher
Think about what is in the dishwasher most often - plan cabinets that allow you to store those items close by.
Who has enough time in the morning? Don't you wish everything for breakfast was right there waiting for you? We can't promise that your breakfast will be prepared when you get up, but we will suggest that you think about what you want to store in each cabinet, as well as consider how the cabinets are arranged. Do they hold the items that you need, where you need them? Is it easy to retrieve the items you need or is there a lot of walking, kneeling, reaching, etc.?
By storing cooking utensils in a drawer under the cooktop, or oils and spices in a cabinet beside the stove, it makes kitchen work that much easier.
Speak with your kitchen designer about your personal/family habits so they can create workspaces arranged in a way that suit your needs. We call these zones, which store everything exactly where you need it.
Better access to the things you need
By using full extension drawers in base cabinets, you can bring the very back corner all the way out to your fingertips.
Specific storage items are used more frequently than others. Store the items that are used daily closer to the countertop and seldom used items in the top or very bottom level of cabinets.
