If you are planning a new kitchen and am looking at the different types of furniture that you need to get, I am sure this question will pop up in your mind: how much budget should I allocate to each furniture?
In the ideal world, we would of course like to get the best of everything. After all, we are talking about furniture for our kitchen, one of the most important parts of our home. However, realistically speaking, you and I both know that more often than not we will have to make compromises due to budget constraint. With this constraint in mind, the next important question we then have to ask ourselves is:
Which are the kitchen furniture that we can (and should) splurge on to make our kitchen more effective, convenient and comfortable?
To help you and other Singaporeans who are facing this problem, we have shortlisted 3 kitchen furniture here you can splurge on.
The 3 Kitchen Furniture You Can Splurge On
1. Kitchen Table
If you are a believer in family dinners – the kind where all family members work together to get plates, food on the table, and sit down to enjoy it together, you would have already know the importance of the dining table.
The table has always been the key in most people’s kitchen – it is where eating, crafting and heart-to-heart-talks happened. Regardless of where you stay (be it a HDB, condo or landed property), the kitchen table is often the most active surface in the house. Choosing a table that you love and works for your family should hence be at the very top of your list.
There are many different types of kitchen table available in the market for you to choose from, and one simple recommendation is to steer clear of anything high-gloss or high-priced that you will be tempted to treat it like a precious. Being one of the most used furniture in the house, you have to expect stains, scrapes and gouges so if you like, you can consider a surface that looks better with age, such as wood.
2. Kitchen Chairs
Another commonly used furniture in the kitchen, I am going to start off with the most important point first:
Always choose surfaces that are easily wiped down and sanitized.
Just like the kitchen table, as one of the most used furniture in the kitchen, it will be inevitable (in fact, it should be a given) that your kitchen chairs are going to get dirty. And it will be a nightmare if your chairs are going to absorb every spill and crumb that goes in their way – not only will it look bad, more importantly it is going to be unhygienic as well.
So in essence, to make life easier for yourself, choose kitchen chairs that can handle every celebration and spill.
3. Kitchen Dinnerware
Dinner plates, soup bowls, spoons, forks, chopsticks. These are most probably the dinnerware that you will be using multiple times, every single day. Since you will be using them so regularly, it will be wise to make sure that they are gorgeous and are something that you love seeing, holding and using.
The key here is to choose dinnerware that will grow up with your family. Spend a little time to research and choose dinnerware that is both of your liking and practical. Here are some of the more popular family-friendly dinnerware that you can consider: pewter, enamelware and white ceramic dishes.
Choose wisely as finding the right type of dinnerware will make you smile every time you do the dishes.
