While taking cues from a catalogue to transform your kitchen sounds like an exciting idea, actually coming up with a space in the house that is functional yet suits your requirements and choices is often hard to achieve. To help through this task, we have drawn up a list of accessories that you must have in your newly designed kitchen.

1. Knife Set

You might often think of a knife as a necessity without sparing a thought to the beauty involved in it. Picking up knives just randomly is not a wise bet. It is best you understand what your cutting and slicing needs are before investing in a decent knife set. Ensure that you get an option that stores the knives safely and has a sharpener attached too. There is no upper limit in terms of how exclusive a knife set could be, but choose one according to your budget and needs.

2. Mixing And Serving Bowls

There have always been those times when you run around finding the right bowl to serve and to marinate stuff in. Create a specific section catering to each. Moreover,  you can actually invest in quality glassware from reputed brands or even high-end stainless steel. Never compromise on the quality or the material used. This is because a top-grade kitchen comes to be only when the cookware and serveware are top-notch. Spare investing in heavy-weight crockery though. They gradually end up lying in a dump somewhere in the cupboard. Rather, invest in something smart for the kitchen.

3. Appliances

Go for built-in appliances. Thanks to the latest advances in technology, customising the gadgets, appliances and electronic items in your kitchen is easier now than ever before. However, make sure you have the right size stove top to begin with. Depending on the number of members in the family and how quick you need to churn out meals every day, invest in the best size stove top.

4. Sink

Go for a deep and large sink. Unless you have the right size sink in place, washing and cleanups become sort of an issue.

5. Storage

You must have planned so many cabinets and all your overhead space too have the right design for accommodation. However, when these cabinets seem smaller than anticipated, you might just be frustrated. We suggest opting for space organisers, hangers and sorting racks to solve this problem. These will actually help you save space while ensuring all your stuff fits in the right place.

Planning the right accessories for the kitchen is vital. Accessories can make or break the design effect of your kitchen. Research well to understand what you actually need. Rummage around and seal the best deals. Make a smart kitchen with the right accessories instead of making one that is just pretty looking.
