Or do you only like having one kitchen? Now there are dry kitchens and wet kitchens - or better known as a pantry. So, what are the differences between the two types of the kitchen?

Use of Wet Kitchen
Wet kitchens are more common in some Asian countries including Indonesia. The term is used for a room that is used specifically as a processing area for heavy cuisines, such as when you want to cook rice and various side dishes to eat. Not only cooking but also washing dishes. So named because of the many types of food cooked in the kitchen that makes it dirty and wet quickly.

This kind of spatial planning can be applied to make the interior design of the house always look clean at all times, including the very influential kitchen set arrangement.
Wet Kitchen Arrangement
Moreover, it has become a common design that wet kitchen sizes are different from dry kitchens. The size of a wet kitchen is made bigger, the extent of which can reach twice that of a dry kitchen. Predictably, the wet kitchen has a larger size because furniture such as refrigerators, ovens, sinks, stoves, and cabinet store seasonings require a lot of space. Although the wet kitchen is often used, the location of the kitchen space is always made in the back of the room, usually so that guests who come to visit do not see first hand the appearance of a wet kitchen.
Although rarely seen by guests, but in its arrangement, a wet kitchen cannot be made haphazardly. Still, it must be done carefully and thoroughly. Various furniture such as stays, knives, pans and cooking spices must be placed close to the kitchen island. Of course, this arrangement will make it easier for you to find and pick up the spices needed.
Things you must remember when arranging the layout of furniture for your wet kitchen, not all cooking utensils are placed in the cabinet. You can just hang some equipment on the wall, making it easier for you when you want to use it.

Cabinets are furniture that must be inside the wet kitchen area, either in the form of an upper cabinet or a lower cabinet. The cabinet functions as a place for arranging and storing kitchen utensils so that the room looks neat and organized. In it can be separated between equipment and ingredients and herbs. But not all kitchen utensils must be placed in the cabinet, because some are better placed on hangers such as knives, sponges, spatulas, and some light equipment that is often used for cooking.

The kitchen is identical to the smoke from the stove, grill and burnt fire. The smoke causes unpleasant odors not only in the kitchen area but can also spread to other rooms in the house. Especially if you are cooking a dish with a strong aroma, the aroma will last long enough. A vacuum cleaner is needed to remove smoke out of the kitchen area to minimize its spread. For those of you who have family members who can't stand the smoke or even small children, the installation of a vacuum cleaner is very important to be in the house.
