When working in the kitchen, you have to accomplish several tasks at once. It requires you to work in different directions at the same time. Hence, your kitchen needs to be functional to make your everyday life a little easy. Below we share some design tips that improve the functionality of the cook’s room.

Hang Pots And Pans

To make the kitchen space more functional, it is best to go vertical. Hanging pots, pans, cutleries is a good idea. It requires less space and can accommodate more. You can also use hooks to hang cups and whiskers.

This idea makes it easy to access anything you require in an urgency. Moreover, the setup is easy to install. It prevents you from rummaging through cabinets when you are in a hurry or about to burn something on the stove.

Create A Separate Space For Pantry

Most of us like to store grocery items in advance. However, when stacking them in a cabinet, it looks full. In fact, it appears stuffed and drives you on a treasure hunt when you are searching for an ingredient.

A pantry will also allow you to arrange things in order. An innovative design could minimise your search time and maximise the functionality of the kitchen. You can also install carousels for quick storage and access to things.

Invest In Lighting


One of the biggest design mistakes that people make is a compromise with the lighting in the kitchen. It is one of the most used spaces in the house, and therefore, it needs bright lights.

You chop, dice, cut, bake and do a million other tasks in the kitchen. If it does not have proper lighting, you can end up cutting your hand or not cooking to perfection. Lighting also creates a lively ambience. Allows the kitchen to receive natural light and add sconce, lamps and tube lights. 

Install Functional Décor 

Adding storage shelves, holders, hooks, mixing bowls, etc. in the cook's room will not only amplify the décor, but it is also a useful kitchen organising hack. It will enhance your speed of working in the kitchen. 

For example, a mixing bowl will facilitate whisking and mixing of ingredients without making a mess around. A chopping board keeps the counter clean and maintains the sharpness of the knife when you cut, chop and dice vegetables.

Arrange Spices

One of the most required ingredients during cooking is a spice. If you do not arrange the containers in order, you will experience hustle when cooking your favourite. Often we find ourselves struggling to identify the container in which we have kept the red chilli powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder or cumin seeds.

If you keep the jars organised, it will only take a second for you to pick them up and sprinkle some in the pot on the stove. It will also make the kitchen look organised and even facilitate your friends and relatives cooking in your house.
