In the kitchen other than the drawers it is important to think about where you want all the electrical fixtures and other sockets. Because it should be accessible for you to operate all the kitchen appliances and have all of them handy. On this decision, you can also narrow down where you can set up your ovens or OTGS.
Yes, colors and paint are also important in the kitchen, to make it combine with the house and to make sure that it does not look different from the house. With the paints on the wall, you should decide on the marble of your kitchen and even the color of your fridge. Think how bizarre it would be if your whole house is based on the theme of neutrals and then your fridge is of red or maroon color, which does not blend. So, look out for color options in your kitchen as well.
Cabinets and drawers
Make the cabinets and drawers large and easy to open so that you can use ample space and keep all the kitchen items in them. Make sure that the material used is heat and water-resistant.
Three pendant lights should be placed at the same height, equally spaced, and at least six inches from the island’s edge. Linear suspension lights are great for the kitchen, especially if you have high ceilings and can hang one at least 40″ above the counter.
