Furniture gives a room its identity and defines how the space will be used. There are many different kitchen furniture options available and each type of piece has its own function. Some of these are cabinets, tables, chairs, storage solutions and more. While some are purely functional, others may be decorative or serve as a focal point of the kitchen’s design. In addition to functionality, some pieces can make the space feel more welcoming and comfortable, helping homeowners relax while they cook and entertain.
When it comes to finding the best kitchen furniture for your home, consider what you use your kitchen most often and what your preferences are in terms of style and layout. Some people prefer to keep their kitchen streamlined and functional, with only the essentials, while others like to have plenty of cabinet storage and shelving for cookbooks and other treasured items. The size of your kitchen also factors into which pieces of furniture are right for the space.
If you’re working with a small kitchen, look for furniture that takes up minimal floor space. For example, you can find kitchen carts on wheels that fit easily into a corner or narrow kitchen hutches with open shelves for storage of dishes and other accessories. These pieces can also be pushed against the wall when not in use, making more room for walking around the kitchen.
For extra storage in a cramped kitchen, you can also buy kitchen furniture with hidden compartments. For example, a pull-out spice rack has handy compartments for storing your most frequently used seasonings, while a tall kitchen hutch provides space to display favorite decorative objects or art. You can also install a wall-mounted wire rack for holding cooking utensils, such as spatulas and spoons, which clears up drawer space while keeping them within reach of your stove. For lighter utensils and other bits that are too heavy for a hanger or don’t require a full rack, Lowenheim suggests using Command hooks, which don’t damage rental walls.
The 33rd edition of the “The European market for kitchen furniture” Report offers an overview of this sector, based on CSIL processing of data from official sources (national and international) and field information collected through direct interviews with companies and sector experts. It includes analysis of production, consumption and international trade in kitchen furniture, by country, as well as a listing and brief profiles of the main players.
There’s no need to spend a fortune on new kitchen furniture when you can transform the look and feel of your space with paint or wallpaper and simple DIY updates. For instance, you can turn a basic wooden table into something unique and eye-catching by adding a coat of paint in your favorite shade or choosing a bold pattern to create a statement dining area. Another great way to update your kitchen is to add a pop of color with an accent wall or a painted ceiling.
