Taken to the lower extreme, a kitchen without bench space is impossible to work in and will be the bane of your existence. When planning or designing a kitchen, allocate plenty of bench area around key work zones (especially your cooktop) and your kitchen will be a happier place to work in.
Kitchen Designer and Renovator Graeme Metcalf of Dan Kitchens: Specifying materials and appliances in a kitchen design without you or your client being fully aware of the benefits and pitfalls of each. Designing a kitchen should involve the client learning from you about the different elements in your proposed design. Equally, you need to be confident the items you are proposing are going to work and are going to last. Furthermore, just because an appliance is the latest technological gadget, doesn’t guarantee it will be trouble free. Take for instance the problem we’ve discovered with induction cooktops. Some rangehoods, for instance, simply can’t be used with induction cooktops as they have trouble dealing with the steam. This is but one example, but it serves to illustrate the growing complexities we face as designers in recommending appliances to our clients. Know your product!
