It’s not a secret it’s the kitchen that’s a central point of control for families with busy schedules. However, it’s not only about looking attractive. By paying attention to the smallest of details it is possible to encourage healthy eating, communication co-operation and unity. What’s more, a space which is neat and tidy in no time? It’s possible! Here’s how…
Let the floor plan be open
Removing walls and replacing the structure with beams of support that create spacious spaces that span from the kitchen area to living space is the most effective method of creating space for multi-purpose family living. The benefits of amplified sunlight and easy access to outdoors can definitely improve your mood.
Don’t build your design around the TV.
In this newly renovated townhouse, the kitchen island and hearth sit at the opposite ends of the main floor, which is open. Prioritizing TV less gives priority to peaceful family activities and occasional use of smaller screens, rather than sprawling on the big screen.
Preparation zones for positioning to get the most optimal views
Create a kitchen island so that you can include both sink and cooking areas, so you are able to easily keep an eye on your kids or join in the celebrations at gatherings while working at the table.
Create a safe cooking zone
The island in the kitchen is technically a peninsula, it acts as a visual and physical barrier, regulating the flow of the space. This minimizes the possibility of playing time overlapping with meal preparation. Wall ovens that are installed at a height that are suitable for adults discourage children.
A cooktop that is induction cools in the moment a hot pot is taken off. A large amount of storage that is closed means the knives and other cooking tools are safe to store away after using.
Future-oriented design for the future
Select durable and long-lasting materials in timeless colours , and in a minimalist pattern to ensure you’ll never tire of them. Porcelain tiles will endure the demands of a hectic family life — including skateboards and bikes without showing signs of age. They are able to be warmed from the bottom for additional convenience.
Quartz countertops as well as a SILGRANIT sink are resistant to staining and chips. The best materials will last for years and will ensure that your home will retain its worth. They’ll require less frequent replacement which will save you money and preventing the earth from further waste.
Let there be sunshine
Get the most benefit from sunlight when you are renovating the narrow townhouse you live in by expanding the size of windows including patio doors, and limiting window treatments. Light floors, cabinets, and counters reduce the visual contrast, making the area feel spacious, airy, and inviting to all.

Reduce visual clutter
Make sure to pack in as much storage that is closed as is possible, so that all bits and bobs are in a safe place. The glass drawers on the front are filled with all white dishes which makes it convenient for setting the table, but also looks neat.
Select a top-quality faucet and sink.
Although it’s a spacious kitchen the counter space is an all-time high. A SILGRANIT sink that incorporates a drainboard, as well as other accessories such as cutting boards and baskets mean that the area can transform into its own multi-purpose prep area just next to the counter space, which allows family members to work together. The POSH faucet that has a pull-out sprayhead is ideal to wash produce or giving the sink a bath.
Allow room for children
Keep games in the lower drawers so that children can play themselves to put things away after they’ve finished. Have a stool nearby so that your sous-chef of a pint can assist with the cooking or baking. Select a high-chair that is in keeping with the style of the of the space. The living space should be furnished with inviting fabrics so that your family members can stay as you work at the table.
Make cleaning easier
Incorporate garbage bins recycling, composting, and recycling in the prep zone. Cover the refrigerator and dishwasher with custom panels so that there are fewer fingerprints that need to be cleaned off stainless surfaces. Select frosted glass over clear glass for drawer and cabinet doors since it won’t display fingerprints. Choose dining chairs that can be cleaned quickly. Make sure you have a tall pantry cupboard to ensure that cleaning supplies are easily easy to access and well-organized.
