Ideas For How To Layout A Shared Kitchen

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My daughter has just been diagnosed with Celiac disease. Coincidentally we are planning to build a new kitchen in a year's time. Because I think that most of the food we eat is already gluten free, I am planning to have my kitchen mostly gluten free with an area set aside to prepare and store foods, which contain gluten (along with all the associated utensils). Does anyone know where I might find some layout ideas? Any design tips? Thanks.

We mark gluten-free utensils (bought specifically after diagnosis) with a special colored duct tape so we all know.

We have a small section of the kitchen that is gluten-full and it is the section that is used the least. Pretty much, it is only used to prepared gluten foods and nothing else. We've also found that things such as the utensil drawer needs to be on the gluten-free side of the kitchen due to crumbs.

Little to nothing in the home is gluten but we have one bottom drawer in the refrig and one bottom shelf in the pantry for gluten if brought into the home. The counter on the right side of the sink is for gluten (cereal/toast). Person using any gluten leaves the dirty dish or toaster out so that I know the area has been glutened and I prefer to clean the stuff myself. One small area for any gluten used items such as toaster, pasta pot & strainer. That stuff is used so little. Everyone knows that if hands are wiped or kitchen towel used around gluten it goes into the laundry immediately.
