Looking for the best campervan kitchen ideas for your van build? Here are the 4 best options out there for any van kitchen!
Unlike the decision as to whether to include a shower option or toilet in your van build, it’s pretty standard that you’re going to have a camper van kitchen regardless of your overall design.
Even if you prefer to eat most of your meals out at a restaurant, there are going to be plenty of times when you need to make a meal at “home.” Plus there are all the snacks and other delicious things to eat (can you say ice cream!) that will need a home inside your van kitchen as well.
But how much floor space you want to commit to your kitchen system is an entirely different issue. And like many of the decisions you already have to make with your van build, how much space you commit, which appliances you include and where you place your camper van kitchen are entirely up to you.
Remember, not only do you need to account for the main kitchen appliances such as a fridge/freezer, stove and sink and faucet, but also you’ll have to include room for cooking accessories, kitchen utensils and pantry storage.
