One of the most important rooms in your holiday home, the kitchen can become an attraction for your visitors. One may find it hard to believe but an elegant and well-equipped kitchen can always create a truly pleasurable experience for anyone. However, it does not come for free; the task of choosing the right kitchen system and accessories demands full planning and is a big investment.
So let’s start with some important factors that you never ignore while going for a kitchen system:
1-Stay true to the architecture of your holiday home: There are numerous kitchen system designs which range from simple to opulent, and which come in price ranges from moderate to super- expensive. But leaving aside style and price, choose a system that will sit well with the existing architectural theme of your holiday home. Otherwise it may look very odd.
2- Value in functionality and durability: There should be a balanced combination of form and function and the system should be well-equipped with lighting elements and intelligent storage facilities.
3- Appliances & Accessories: Keep in mind that you are choosing items for a holiday home and for visitors who come to stay, whether it is yourself the owner or your guests. All appliances need to ultimately save cooking and cleaning time, so that visitors have less kitchen hassles and more scope to relax.
Let’s start with refrigerators, besides the myriad styles,prices, etc, for a holiday home, consider the capacity, storage options and size of the freezer. So, it is wise to settle for a larger capacity and energy-efficient unit. Similarly, choose a stainless steel body refrigerator that looks great, and doesn’t need frequent cleaning.
When it comes to cooking appliances, you have stoves and ovens. Whatever you choose, the guests must find it easy when cooking. An electric stove is a favorite option for beginners due to its slow heat-up; a induction stove is preferred by experienced cooks while a gas stove is known for its cost effectiveness and fast heat-up ability. Conventional ovens, are more energy efficient. Convection ovens use more energy and are a favorite with some expert cooks for their ability to cook fast.
Also important, is the ventilation system. Choose a ventilation system depending on the size of your stove so that the heat, odor and grease is completely eliminated. If there are several heating elements, then the ventilation system should be stronger to combat the heat produced, for example in the case of a grill, griddle or burner. Ventilation systems can also look stylish and there are many sleek options available.
Lastly, do consider a good dishwasher. Try selecting a higher-end dishwasher that makes little noise. Otherwise your guests will find it very disturbing, particularly at night, or if your holiday home is small or has open floor plans. Get a dishwasher depending on the size of the dishware – if your dishware is smaller then get a dishwasher of appropriate size which is not too huge. Your dishwasher should be bigger and more efficient but smart enough to save water usage.
Choosing the right kitchen system and accessories for your holiday home should be a rewarding experience. You’ll know your kitchen is great when the equipment takes care of everything, allowing your guests to move to other rooms, but the guests insist on staying back, just to soak up the wonderful ambience your kitchen offers!
