How to make your kitchen functional and sustainable
Your kitchen is the heart of your home. How it performs and how it looks are two important factors. Even though doors and drawer fronts are the main style decision you make when updating your kitchen, don’t forget to pay attention to other important details that can make your kitchen more functional, efficient and sustainable.
The busiest place in the kitchen
The sink and the area around it, is one of the busiest places in the kitchen. To make the activities as easy as possible, choose a sink and sink accessories that match your needs and the way you work in the kitchen. The INSJÖN mixer tap helps you save water and energy, because it has a mechanism that reduces water flow while maintaining pressure.
Keep essentials close at hand
Less time searching, more time for cooking! Life in the kitchen goes a lot smoother when your drawers open up fully to help you reach everything. With smart wall storage, including shelves, rails and hooks, often used items can be close at hand, at the same time you free up workspace.
Shape the kitchen of your dreams
To achieve a harmonious kitchen atmosphere, you should be able to easily put things away when you are not using them. Choose the distinct BODBYN kitchen fronts with bevelled panels to design a kitchen that is both functional and pleasant-looking. You can also choose glass doors that are perfect for showing your lovely dinnerware sets while also protecting them from dust.
Extra storage is never too much
Make your kitchen flow better with flexible furniture like RÅSKOG trolley. The sturdy construction and four castors make it easy for you to move the trolley and use it wherever you like. In a tiny kitchen, it can serve for both extra storage and a worktop (just add a practical HÖGSMA chopping board in bamboo as a lid).
Build the kitchen upside down
If you have a small kitchen and want to save some floor space, build the kitchen cabinets upwards. Use more wall cabinets instead of the base ones and make it easier to reach the things you need with the BEKVÄM step stool. A hand-hole in the top step makes it easy to move wherever you need.
A brighter kitchen life
Preparing food and doing kitchen work is safer, easier and more fun when you have a good, even light across your worktop. For STRÖMLINJE LED worktop lighting, we used a lighting technique originally developed for laptops, combined with a construction that is amazingly flexible, water resistant and can connect together to fit practically any kitchen.
Get more than what you see
The outside doesn’t have to dictate the inside. On the contrary, you can have a calm and streamlined exterior, and create endless combinations of highly organised storage on the inside. MAXIMERA dividers for drawers make it easy to see and reach things or groceries in an open drawer, while VARIERA cutlery trays look after your cutlery and prevent them from getting scratches or other damages in the drawer.
Bring your corners out of the corner
Get the most of your corner space and make the contents of the cabinet easy to see and reach with the pull-out UTRUSTA carousel. Two adjustable shelves are ideal for storing things like pots, pie dishes and dry goods. Plus, they are covered by a 25-year guarantee.
Displays and hideaways
The secret behind fun and simplified cooking is easy access and plenty of space on the kitchen worktop. Keep the things you don’t use as much behind cabinet fronts and everything else visible on the FINTORP wall-mounted rails. If you need more storage space for glasses, bowls and plates, place as many VARIERA shelf inserts on your shelves as you need. They make the contents of the cabinet easy to overview and access.
