Your kitchen is in a lot of ways a reflection of your personality. If you are someone into gourmet cooking then your kitchen would have gourmet equipment and accessories, and on the other hand, if you are someone who spends very little time in your kitchen, then your kitchen will reflect the same. So making your kitchen more efficient will mean different things to different people. But if you are clueless as to what you want, then here are a few general tips you can incorporate into your kitchen renovation plan.
1) Declutter Your Kitchen Platforms

You can make use of the wall space by installing a hanging storage space for vessels and a book holder for your cookbooks.
2) Systematic Storage Space
Having a systematic storage space is a major step towards making your kitchen more efficient. You can creatively use your kitchen space to come up with cabinets. Your home renovator can help you come up with a smart design for your kitchen storage space. You can:
Add cabinets above the window
Hang mugs from hooks keeping the countertop free
Store cutting boards in a basket
Opt for pull out shelves
Save floor space with swivel stools
Making your kitchen more efficient would mean using energy efficient appliances. Energy efficient appliances not only make cooking faster but also cuts down on your power bills. This is important considering the fact that kitchens are places wherein electricity is utilized extensively. This is a good enough reason for you to replace your old dysfunctional appliances with newer energy efficient ones.
