What Defines The Perfect Kitchen


It is incorrect to assume that any space, no matter how small or uncomfortable it may be, is “good enough” for a kitchen. Housekeepers spend a lot of time in this room, so it should be one of the brightest and most convenient ones in the home because no other department has as much of an impact on the family’s health and comfort as those working in this “domestic workshop.”


Every kitchen should have windows on two sides of the space, allowing the sun to freely enter. The windows should also open from the top to allow for a complete exchange of air, as light and clean air are among the most important factors in the performance of all household departments. Additionally, it’s important to have good drainage, and the ventilation in the kitchen needs to be handled even more carefully than in a sleeping area. The ventilation in the kitchen should be sufficient to completely expel all gases and aromas, which, along with steam from boiling and other cooking processes, typically infiltrate and make every other area of the house somewhat unsanitary.


The area shouldn’t be too big so that it requires too many steps, but it should have enough room for tables, chairs, a range, a sink, and cabinets. Undoubtedly, unattractive surroundings contribute significantly to the dislike of and neglect of “housework,” which is frequently lamented. Compounding the foods that decorate the table and sate the appetite will be a joyful chore if the kitchen is bright, airy, and organized, and the equipment are shiny and clean.

From a sanitary perspective, it is preferable that the kitchen floor be made moisture-proof; as a result, concrete or tile flooring are preferable to wooden floors. The main goal is cleanliness, which can best be achieved by applying polish to all woodwork in and around the kitchen. Grease and other things that produce stains do not penetrate polished wood and can be wiped with ease using a moist cloth.

The kitchen ought to have some aspects of elegance. Pictures and fancy objects are inappropriate, but a few pots of easily maintained flowers placed on the window ledge or on brackets around the window in the winter, and a window box set up as a jardiniere with vines and blooming plants in the summer, will greatly brighten the room and help those whose daily work confines them to the kitchen’s confines, by making their task easier.

Furniture in the kitchen.

Kitchen furniture should not be very heavy and should be constructed and styled to be simple to clean. There should be many cupboards, and each one should be used exclusively for a specific function to maintain order. Sliding-door cabinets are far preferable to closets. They should be mounted on casters so they can be moved with ease because they are not only more handy but also allow for more thorough cleaning.

Food storage cabinets need to be well aired in order to avoid providing ideal circumstances for the growth of mold and bacteria. Moving cabinets can be ventilated using apertures in the top and doors coated in very fine wire mesh that lets air in but keeps dust and flies out.

Small tables with zinc surfaces and easy-rolling wheels are the most practical and convenient for everyday kitchen work. They are also the easiest to keep clean. It is best that they are created without drawers because they have a tendency to collect a variety of trash. If it is desired to have a convenient location for keeping items that are regularly needed, an arrangement such to that shown in the accompanying cut may be built for a very low cost. The placement of tiny shelves around and above the range, where different culinary essentials can be placed, may also be advantageous.

A sink is one of the most essential pieces of furniture for a well-equipped kitchen, but it must be built correctly and maintained or it could provide a serious health risk to the occupants of the home. If at all possible, the sink should protrude from the wall to allow for easy cleaning access on all sides. A qualified plumber should choose and install the pipes and fixtures.


To maintain the pipes’ cleanliness and thorough disinfection, great care should be given. All forms of trash should be kept outside. Greasy water and table scraps frequently find their way into the pipes due to irresponsible housekeepers and domestics. Drain pipes typically have a bend or trap through which water free of sediment flows; however, melted grease that frequently enters the pipes mixed with hot water cools and solidifies as it descends, adhering to the pipes and slowly building up until the drain is blocked or the water passes through very slowly. A grease-lined pipe is a breeding ground for pathogens.
