Kitchen / July 1, 2018 /
Layouts are usually dictated by the space available, but islands continue to dominate with many larger kitchens now opting for two islands. Most will have breakfast bar seating or banqueting seating attached to the island so that dining is incorporated into the kitchen area. An island or breakfast bar can also work as both a storage area and a place for dining. But less often they are used for actual food preparation. Utilise your island further by installing an appliance, the addition of a small sink or hob in your island will mean everyone can get involved with food prep.
Between prep work, cooking and dishes, you spend the bulk of your kitchen time on your feet. No matter you are young , standing for prolonged periods of time does not do your feet, knees or back any favors.Try keeping a pair of well cushioned, supportive sneakers on hand to wear while working. If you have the space, stash them under the sink. With a few bucks and a few minutes, you can even rig a spot for them on the back of the cabinet door using removable hooks and a section of an over the door shoe organizer.
