Three steps to planning your perfect kitchen


Step 1: What goes on in your kitchen?
The function of kitchens in our homes continues to evolve. No longer purely a cooking space, more often than not this is where the action occurs in the house, doubling up as a dining and entertainment zone, an office space and somewhere that multiple gadgets may be on the go simultaneously. Make your space work for you today, tomorrow and in the future.

Step 2: Think about your ideal layout
Getting the relationship right between functional spaces is key to an efficient design. Map the space between the cooking, cleaning, preparation and storage zones.

Step 3: Maximise every inch of space
From wall units to fold-away solutions, drawer dividers to pan stands – using space cleverly will create the ultimate storage efficiency.

Whether you’re working with a small space and looking for clever solutions that make every inch of space work harder for you, or you need a smart solution for a renovation project, Häfele‘s ‘ideas for living’ will help you find the solution.
