If you spend a lot of time in the kitchen then you'll be familiar with some of the main challenges that every homeowner faces. Because the kitchen is an active rather than passive space in the house, and because it sees so much use, the main priority should always be function and practicality. The kitchen should be a breeze to navigate, with everything you need close at hand, and everything organised so that you don't spend all your time rummaging through packed drawers looking for that item you could have swore you put here somewhere!
That's why today we're going to look at 8 great ideas for Malaysian kitchens that will make your life a whole lot easier.

If you have a kitchen island, we highly suggest you make the most of the storage opportunities it offers by including drawers and cabinets. Drawers can be a real life saver in the kitchen, especially when they are custom built and super functional like these ones.

As we've said, our main concern today is with practical solutions, but that doesn't mean they can't have a fantastic impact on the decor. A solution like this, with wooden shelves protected by sliding glass panels, looks modern and trendy, adding visual interest to your kitchen. But they're also super functional, allowing easy access to those items you're always reaching for.
There's nothing worst than an overstuffed cupboard, whether it's filled with appliances, pots and pans, or plasticware.
