Creating Perfect Countertops For Baking

If you are an avid baker, then you want your entire kitchen to cater to your baking needs. This article will educate you on some of the things you can do to create a kitchen in your home that allows you to bake efficiently in a comfortable environment.

Create more counter space

You're going to want to be sure you have enough counter space to do your baking. A cluttered countertop will make it frustrating to bake, especially when it comes to doing things like mixing all of your ingredients, which requires room for all the ingredient packages, and rolling the dough, which requires a lot of extra space.

One of the things you can do to create more counter space is to relocate your microwave oven so it is no longer sitting on the counter. You can have the microwave installed to the bottom of one of your cupboards. If all of your cupboards hang pretty low, then you may need to opt for a smaller microwave.

Another thing that you can do to create more space is to get a moveable pantry you can set somewhere in the kitchen to hold many of the things you currently have taking room on your countertops. Any jars, spices, and other items can be tucked out of the way in this pantry.

You can get yourself a moveable kitchen island if you have enough room for one in your kitchen. The island can be rolled to where you need it when you need it.

Choose the best countertops

The countertops you have will play a big role in creating the perfect space for you to do your baking. You want to have a countertop installed that offers you a flat space. If you have tile countertops, then the grout lines are going to make it difficult for you to roll out things like fondant where you want both sides of the surface to be flat.

You'll also want countertops that are heat resistant and easy to keep clean. Again, tile countertops can cause an issue because the grout can take longer for you to clean properly.

Good countertops that offer you a heat-resistant, smooth, and easy-to-clean surface include granite and marble countertops. These countertops come in a variety of styles, so you can still match them to the current décor you have in your kitchen.


Following the advice in this article will make it much easier for you to do your baking in your kitchen. You'll find you enjoy baking more when it can be done easily and without hassle.
