The accessories you choose to feature in your kitchen may be the first elements guests notice. Many homeowners look to accessories—along with other thematic elements like color schemes and patterns—as an opportunity to express their design aesthetic and add visual interest and a distinct personality to their kitchen design style. Manufacturers of accessories have recognized this trend and are now offering a large selection of unique, eye-catching accessory designs.
A smart kitchen design layout can make any gourmet feel right at home cooking in cramped quarters. Case in point: the galley layout, which shapes the kitchen into a narrow aisle. By situating the cabinetry and appliances against opposite walls, full-height cabinets are a good option for taking full advantage of your wall real estate.
Whether you‘re looking to create extra space in your home or just want a floor plan for your kitchen and dining area that welcomes guests and family members alike, you may want to explore options for an open kitchen design. Open kitchens can be great spaces for entertaining, but they also have benefits when it comes to functionality, storage and efficiency.
Lighting is a particularly key feature of open kitchen designs, since open designs tend to incorporate more space than their closed-in counterparts. Finding the right balance of coverage, style and function can be a challenge, but if you focus on the three basic lighting types—main, decorative and task—you should have no problem lighting your open kitchen design. For main lighting, consider a track that encircles the room or runs through the middle of the entire design. A chandelier or large handing pendant can light the dining room space. Task lighting is a great idea for sink, cooking and food prep areas. And finally, decorative lighting can be a great feature for the tops and bottoms of cabinets.
