3 Layout Ideas for a Functional Kitchen

When it comes to designing a kitchen for your new home, choosing the right layout that best suits your family lifestyle can be tricky.

As the hub of home activity, the kitchen is not only a place for cooking and eating, but also for entertaining, socialising and sometimes even working.

To make sure your kitchen layout is functional and makes the most of the space you have at your disposal, we have listed 3 layout ideas from our popular home designs to help you make a decision.

 

1. Indoor-outdoor connectivity

If you love to entertain family and friends, having a good integration and flow between your kitchen and outdoor alfresco is a feature that can make all the difference.

When taking into account the indoor-outdoor flow for your kitchen design, here are some options of floorplans you can customise with Smart Homes for Living, using iDesign.

2. More storage space

Whether you want a clutter-free kitchen or need some extra storage, a walk-in pantry or open scullery is the perfect place to store all your kitchen gadgets, making it easy to keep things looking well presented.

Most of Smart Homes For Living designs feature an add-on scullery or walk-in pantry space. Here are some options you can also customise through iDesign.

3. Laundry off the kitchen

Many designers say that the best location for a laundry room is off the kitchen in its own room. Having a laundry nearby your kitchen does have some advantages. It is not only functional, but can make it simple to do a quick load of washing whilst cooking or cleaning up.

If you are looking for a plan which has the laundry accessible via the kitchen, take a look at these two options.
