Love to Bake? Try These 13 Ideas for a Better Baker's Kitchen

Possessing a baker in the household is a mixed blessing. Who does not love the aroma of sugar and butter circulating throughout the house? That is the good news: Baking equals good-house vibes. The bad news: That is a lot of calorie desire to contend with on a regular basis. Yummy carbohydrates are so hard to pass up.

Baking is specific; it is really a science, if you consider it. Designing or changing a kitchen for a critical baker demands some thought, even some field study. I recently put together a few ideas for a baking enthusiast making some alterations to your own kitchen. Some ideas are acceptable for smaller kitchens, while others work best in kitchens with a larger footprint.

Grab a glass of cold milk — that the cookies are in the oven. Here are a baker’s dozen ideas to consider while you wait.

1. Open shelves. Bulk storage of dry ingredients such as flour and sugar is easily accessed from convenient open shelves.

2. Rolling cart. Layout with purpose in mind. If you’re short on wall space to cabinets or open shelves, then consider a rolling cart positioned near counters which holds ingredients and equipment.

3. Tray and baking pan storage. Upright tray storage is excellent for bakers, since what is inside is easy to see and access; cabinets created particularly for trays are narrow and tall. Tray storage can also be put in upper cabinets over ovens or microwave.

4. Storage containers and drawers. Drawers are ideal for storage. Being able to look at ingredients and kitchen equipment from above is sensible. Also, bins with sterile lids keep ingredients clean.

5. Tool display. A group of paint-dipped bread boards is wrapped just as an art installation here. Even if tools are only for appearances, hang them outside in the open. This could also use rolling pins or cake molds.

6. Roll-out drawer. Plan for a little roll-out drawer inside your cabinet design. Use thin drawers such as this for storing cookie cutters and measuring spoons.

7. Tech corner. Plan for a little space where you can wire into a TV, desktop or notebook computer or just display an iPad. There are thousands of recipes and how-to videos on the internet. Include a technician corner next to your countertop and inhale right along with your favourite demonstration video or cooking show.

8. Double ovens. When you’ve got the space and budget, purchase wall-mounted double ovens; they’re dreamy for bakers.

Consider looking into convection heat too. Convection ovens work with fans which recirculate heat, which is excellent for evenly baked biscuits and crusts. Even baked products such as croissants develop a crispy, even feel with convection heat.

9. Built-in step stool. If you’ve pans or trays stored in tall top cabinets, consider a built-in step stool for easy access.

10. Workstation. If you inhale on a regular basis, proceed: Establish a pliers directly on top of the countertop. The same as at an actual bakery, make the countertops your job locations. Solid-surface countertops such as granite and marble are ideal for rolling out dough. Display your tools and equipment right in which you use them.

11. Cookbooks. Take a bookshelf near a working place. You may want to create easy access for frequently used publications or recipe folders. A shelf next to a center island, for example, is sensible and good looking.

12. Spice drawer. Maintain the cinnamon, nutmeg and the remainder at arm’s reach. A drawer allows for a high view of frequently used spices and spices. If you’re into business, alphabetize the spices inside their rows.

13. Pastry table. Plan a room for a pastry table at the principal work triangle. Old-fashioned pastry tables are usually lower than standard countertops. A marble or similar good surface is excellent for rolling out pastry or bread dough.
