A well-designed kitchen is important for your family but even more essential for a food lover who spends a lot of time cooking. As well as professional appliances, sturdy surfaces and sufficient storage, a few other things can keep your kitchen organized and easy to clean. Here are some practical kitchen design essentials every foodie needs to make cooking easier and inspire creativity in the kitchen.

Knife Storage
A concealed knife block placed as close as possible to your main preparation area will ensure an easy and convenient way to organize and protect your knife blades. Knives are best stored horizontally for less damage and pressure on the blade so a proper knife drawer with a knife block will keep them out of the way but within easy reach.

Appliance Storage Cabinet
For someone who cooks regularly, it is handy to have a dedicated storage unit for your all of your small appliances. A storage cabinet will keep your appliances out of sight but still keep them close enough for easiest accessibility with roll-down or sliding doors.

Kitchen Spray Tap
Pull-out spray taps make it easier to fill up large pots or vases and allow you to maneuver the flexible hose around your kitchen pots and pans to spray off food scraps. For a frequent cooker, it will make completing kitchen chores a whole lot easier; hosing down large pots and washing vegetables, as you can control the direction of the water.

Spice Drawer
Every foodie owns a well-loved collection of herbs and spices, possibly organized in alphabetical order. Installing a custom made drawer right under the stove allows you to keep your favourite spices within arm’s reach when wanting to add some extra flavor to your cooking.

Walk-in Pantry
If you love to organize your appliances and have all of your cooking ingredients on display, a walk-in pantry is a must. With a place for every kitchen item, walk-in pantries make it easy to find what you are looking for and make menu choices quicker.
