Homeowners are increasingly remodeling their homes to add extra space and increase functionality, perhaps for kids or relatives moving back in or entertaining friends or family members. And, kitchenettes are all the rage, whether you’re remodeling a rec room, an extra living area, or entertainment space. So, the riddle begins here, do you need cabinets for your Kitchenette or is a small Kitchen? Both of these terms are probably familiar to you, but what makes them different? Kitchenettes are much smaller than kitchens, and because there isn’t enough space in a kitchenette, full-sized appliances almost never find their way into one. There are probably only one or two cabinets and a limited amount of countertop space. Most kitchenettes have only a few essential appliances, such as a microwave, a toaster oven, a hot plate, and a small refrigerator. The majority of kitchenettes do not have stovetops or ovens.
Meanwhile, every standard kitchen includes a stove top, a sink, a dishwasher, a microwave, a refrigerator, and a few other electric appliances. It is still possible to have all of these things in a small kitchen.
Kitchenettes, being so small, force you to take advantage of every square inch, so they’re usually very functional and practical. Additionally, due to their small size, they can be easily integrated into a pool house, basement, etc.
A kitchenette has more advantages than you might think. They require very little maintenance. Occasionally brush off the dust and wash the sink. Anyone who wants to avoid having to clean their house every week will love this service. In addition, you can easily find good recipes online that require only a microwave and a one-burner hot plate
Additionally, there are several kitchen appliances that are suitable for apartment-size kitchenettes that can improve your quality of life. Electric kettles, for example, are essential. A fairly inexpensive device, it boils water three times more quickly than a hotplate or microwave. In addition, you can prepare a lot of healthy recipes in no time with the food steamer, which not only makes life easier but is also easy to use. For coffee lovers, brew a nice cup of Joe with a French press that’s so good you won’t need expensive coffee shop coffee ever again. You can always install an apartment-sized oven if you like to cook a lot.
Benefits of Kitchenettes
Even if you have a full-size kitchen, this complementary space can serve many purposes. Kitchenettes give you extra space and convenience for preparing everything from light snacks to full meals, and they give your guests or tenants the privacy to store and prepare food in their own space.
Kitchenette cabinets offer valuable space-saving storage room for all kinds of kitchen utensils, appliances, and food items. Depending on what you’ll use it for, you can choose from a wide variety of kitchenette cabinets, including sink base cabinets, counter cabinets with drawers, wall cabinets, and even pantry or closet units.
Base and counter cabinets are ideal for storing larger items like extra pots and pans and kitchen appliances that you don’t use every day. Drawers are perfect for utensils and cutlery, while wall and pantry cabinets are great for storing canned goods, snacks, and other supplies. Closet units help clear clutter by keeping brooms, scrub brushes, and other cleaning materials out of the way.
When you’re making plans for your next remodel, don’t forget to add plenty of convenient, space-saving kitchenette cabinets to your brand new kitchenette.
Kitchenette cabinets and layout must and nice to-haves:
- Hotplate with one or two burners
- Dorm refrigerator
- Countertop food steamer
- French Press
- Tiny build in oven
- Stack the cabinets tall for added storage
With the understanding you now have of a kitchenette, you can decide whether you really need a full-sized kitchen or if a small kitchenette will do the job. Would you be content with less space for less money, or does the chef in you need all those drawers and appliances?
