A beautiful kitchen is a showpiece, a beautiful kitchen that is fully functional and accessorized
is a true masterpiece!
An accessorized kitchen can :
Store more items, and store them more efficiently, putting often used tools at the cook’s fingertips
for ease of access.
They are also more ergonomic. Why are ergonomics so important? Kitchens are the highest function room
in the house; they are full of potential sources of strains, repetitive motion, and awkward positions.
In addition, all residents of the home use this space; therefore, it needs to be user friendly for the
least able and the most able person as well as the tallest and smallest. Proper ergonomic design can
also help prevent repetitive strain injuries that can lead to long-term disability or injury.
Accessories also allow a kitchen to take on additional use. Examples:
Provide a food prep area with an additional sink for washing fresh fruit and vegetables.
Allow more than one cook to work in a kitchen without a lot of restrictions. (Each can have
their own work triangle allowing them to access the stove, refrigerator, and prep area without
crossing into each others triangle excessively) Allowing freedom of movement.
Provide a breakfast bar eating area.
These are wonderful for parties, they allow the person cooking to interact with
guests seated at the bar.
They create a place for the family to eat snacks or meals.
They provide a work area where children can do their homework supervised by their
parent - the cook.
They increase storage capacity.

the cabinet with ease.
