3 Ways to Optimize Your Custom Home’s Second Kitchen

3 Ways to Optimize Your Custom Home’s Second Kitchen

Whether you are thinking of adding an outdoor kitchen just in time for spring, or you want a second kitchen set up in your home, you need to think about it long and hard.

Whether you are thinking of adding an outdoor kitchen just in time for spring, or you want a second kitchen set up in your home, you need to think about it long and hard. There are many ways to get the best out of this home remodeling project, but if accessibility is your main concern, then there are some changes that are more worth it than others. Let’s find out what they are!

Wider Walking Paths 

Controlling traffic is a benchmark of a well-designed kitchen. Whether you are remodeling your current kitchen or want to have a backup kitchen for just such an occasion, keeping this factoid in mind can make the whole process much more manageable. Make sure that the paths are at least three feet wide. The work triangle, on the other hand, needs to be a bit larger to accommodate all of the extra motion that is involved with preparing ingredients and cooking meals. As such, tables and islands might need some repositioning.

Bigger Countertops 

Another idea is to plan for more counter space. A small kitchen can be uncomfortable to spend time in, especially if you have no countertops to speak of; don’t let this happen to you! Fifteen inches of countertop space is considered to be the best, but you might want more depending on your daily or weekly cooking habits. This addition is where a kitchen island can be even more useful – you get more under cabinet storage for pots and pans that you might not otherwise have. 

Adding a Backsplash

Finally, consider adding a backsplash to your kitchen design. These components are essential for reducing damage caused by splashes and spills. Tiled backsplashes both look beautiful and serve a functional purpose. Different shapes, styles, textures, and colors are at your disposal – it all comes down to whichever one you like the best!
