Hi everyone we are building a house and are totally excited to finally move in. Since the move in date is coming closer I started thinking of what I need to buy to equip my kitchen since we lack of almost everything. I got to admit, that I am completely overwhelmed with figuring out what I need and all the options out there. Do you have any advise / best-parctices on how I can manage equipping my kitchen quick and stress-free?

Thank you for your help Smile

@sabs1964,
My biggest suggestions to you would be the consider how to prevent/fix annoyances and also to consider how long you'll be in the house. If you're looking to stay into your retirement years, then (for example) keeping the doorway wider means a wheelchair could fit in there. And keeping cabinets lower or at least some storage lower could help to prevent a fall in the future. As for fixing/preventing annoyances, if you love to bake, then if you can install a built-in cooling rack (and make it easy to take the parts out and clean them), that might make things more convenient.

@jespah,
Hi Jespah,
thank you for your response. The kitchen planning is already done and on it's way to be delivered. Major appliances are also purchased. My problem: I will have to think about what I need and where I want to place it into my kitchen. How did you guys determine what you need and where to store to provide a good workflow in my kitchen. One of my friends told me that she already thought about what she needed and where she wanted to see her kitchenware while she was planning her kitchen to ensure a perfect workflow. Now I am a bit afraid, that I should have done the same and that I won't be able to equip my kitchen with a smooth flow.
When did you start to plan on your kitchenware and where did you do your research of what you need?

@sabs1964,
I didn't plan any of mine (I live in an old Victorian).

But for anything, I would suggest to think about what you do often. Don't worry if it'll be imperfect in 10 years.

Make a lot of salads? Then a sink with a good sprayer, easy to reach, would help you. Reheat a lot of leftovers? Then make sure your microwave is accessible. Use the oven a lot? Then if it's an eat-in kitchen and your area gets very hot in the summer, consider how to place the table and chairs as far away from the heat source as possible.

You're going to be fine.

@jespah,
And think about the garbage can! Put it in a centrally located place so you don't spend a lot of time walking back and forth to throw things away.

@sabs1964,


Bar a bar, bar a bar, bar a bar, bar a bar

Good mitts, slivovitz, tippling design
Egg rings, many things I can't define
Okaying your saying clutter is fine
Straws, picks and swizzlesticks, arak for the wine

Who cares what gums we chews
Kitchen to win, but kitsche if you lose

Straws, picks and swizzlesticks, meaningless gowns
Ice makers, bread bakers, coffee that's ground
Look at yourself, look at yourself, in saucepans
Look at yourself, look at yourself, flans fans cans

To divide the clock I'd benchtop in two
Toasters onto to one side, it's the least you can do
Plastics electrics, a kettle that's new
Eclectic elastics, all pots on view

Who cares what gums we chews
Kitchen to win, but kitsche if you lose

Good mitts, slivovitz, tippling design
Egg rings, many things I can't define
Okaying your saying clutter is fine
Straws, picks and swizzlesticks, arak for the wine

Who cares what gums we chews
Kitsche if you win, kitchen if you lose

Straws, picks, swizzlesticks
Straws, picks, swizzlesticks

Jars jars jars, oh la la, jars jars jars, oh la la, jars jars jars
