Are you a baking enthusiast planning to do a kitchen makeover? Then, you’ve come to the right place. There are a lot of factors to consider when designing a baking-friendly space. Here are some ideas.
1. Open Shelving
Baking involves using a lot of equipment, so it’s best to make your tools accessible, especially the oversized ones like mixing bowls and bundt pans. Open shelves can do the job for you as they break up cabinet faces. They can also make your kitchen look bigger. Apart from storing your tools, you can use them to showcase your Chinaware or cookbook collection.
2. Low-Maintenance Countertops
Marble and granite make excellent options because of their non-stick rolling surface. They’re also easy to maintain, making them a go-to choice not only in kitchen renovation, but in bathroom remodeling as well. Quartz is also becoming increasingly popular for bakers because it doesn’t need to be sealed. It doesn’t get warm that much, so you don’t have to worry about butter melting as you roll out your dough.
3. Smart Appliances
For an enjoyable baking experience, you might want to consider investing in high-tech equipment. There are smart ovens that come with convection cooking and voice control, which makes baking more efficient. There are also smart refrigerators that allow you to watch TV on a door-front screen and remotely check your fridge for ingredients in case you’re out grocery shopping.
4. Large Island
A large kitchen island makes it easy to put your pies out to cool or roll out your dough. It can also act as an additional seating when entertaining guests as you prepare your meals. To make the most of its benefits, consider drawers or cupboards for storage, and choose a heat-resistant countertop. You should also allow plenty of room to walk around the island. If you have a small space, however, you can use a kitchen cart instead.
