I have been looking at so many kitchen designs in Stores and online to find a kitchen that would look futuristic and at the same time make me feel happy and excited to go in and cook. Legal & General have have done some interesting research about the kitchen of the future.
I have a wish list of what I would like in my kitchen and to make it easy for me to remember, I have used some examples YouTube videos to show you the kind of a kitchen I would like. None of the Appliance manufacturers have sponsored me and the views about them are my own.
I want my kitchen to look big and open and without a lot of clutter. That means that I would need plenty of storage cupboards. As one gets older, it’s good to look for kitchen designs that will make your life easier. For my new kitchen, I would like to have rotating drawers similar to these:
I would use the rotating selves on my wall cupboards and the following pull out shelves for my floor cabinets:
Using rotating and pull out shelves means that it is so easy to reach what you require and also to keep everything clean and stocked up.
Now that I have chosen the the type of cupboards, I need to make sure that I have a large Central island with an integrated hob with both electric and gas cooking hobs. For my oven, I would like an electric fan oven at my eye level. Both the hob and oven have to be smart and electronic so that I can set the timers using an app on my phone. A review done about them in this article states: “There are single and double oven options available and all you have to do to call yourself a chef is pop the food into the oven, close the door and select the recipe from the display menu. Alternatively, you can download recipes on online.” Now doesn’t that sound wonderful? I could ask it to follow all my recipes and so that my family can enjoy ready meals!!
Now that I have the cooking appliances sorted, I need to buy the perfectly smart fridge. I do not want an integrated fridge as I want my fridge to be a show stopper in my kitchen. LG smart have just made the perfect fridge. Apart from being a massive fridge freezer, it has a touch screen which is linked to a grocery App on your phone. It allows you to keep track of what’s in your fridge, when you go shopping. It also has access to recipes and when you choose a recipe the ingredient list goes to your phone to enable you to pick up the items when you go shopping in the store or online.
For my dishwaher, I would like to have a dishwasher that is easy to stack and I found a perfect one. I like this one as it’s prongs are flexible and enable you to make space for the odd shaped washing items.
I know that a lot of people would insist on filling their kitchen on gadgets like a microwave or a coffee machine in the kitchen. For me I would love to have my kitchen set up like a film studio with cameras above my work space and facing me. As I am a foodie, one of my future plans is to make videos of the food and whilst I am dreaming of a new kitchen, I might as well make sure I get smart videoing equipment me. As I am not an expert in this area, I will have to research on this and find the perfect easy to use filming equipment. Let me know if you are aware of such equipment.
I haven’t chosen a colour scheme as yet so I am hoping that you will share your ideas with me. What does your dream kitchen look like? Do you have any gadgets you can’t live without?
