Kitchen Ideas / March 13, 2018 / .
Keep in mind that a lot of the features needed in a kosher kitchen are what you'll find in any modern kitchen. There are many times when you will see two sinks and two stoves in the same kitchen. When deciding to invest in this kind of setup, keep in mind the size of your space. A little creative design effort will be appreciated. Also, while keeping kosher may be associated with Judaism it's important to know that different Jews observe differently or sometimes not at all, so a kosher kitchen based on individual preference means that any of these features can be mixed and matched for a one-of-a-kind dream design.
While thinking of food preparation, you must consider some main appliances. For example, will you need an extra sink and if so, make sure that is at least nine inches deep to prevent splashing. The versatile nature of the unit allows you to introduce a cooktop with vent hood overhead or flexible butcher block if needed. Also, one often overlooked detail is whether or not you would like to have accessible outlets on your island – it is essential if you are using the space for food prep – blenders, mixers, etcetera devices will be grateful if you think about that matter in advance.
As you are designing your kitchen and accounting for doubled appliances and maximizing it's storage, keep in mind that twice the appliances also means twice the electrical and plumbing needs. Be sure to take this into account and factor in clearance for your appliances, and also to install adequate ventilation to remove extra cooking fumes and moisture. These may infringe on spaces that would otherwise be used for cabinetry and for this reason a lot of designers suggest extending cabinetry to the ceiling to allow for maximum storage.
Skylights can be an answer to both the storage and lighting problem. By throwing light downwards and outwards, the need for small windows is reduced, freeing up valuable vertical wall space which can then be used for high-rise cupboards. With a galley kitchen, consider installing French windows opening out on to your garden. If you lay a deck right outside the exit you can leave the windows open during the summer, increasing the feeling of space by making a garden room.
