Macy Guillemot Kitchen Decorating, November 22nd , 2017. One of the first things you‘ll need to consider for your open kitchen is how many walls you want to keep standing in the space. If any of the walls are load-bearing, your decision may be made for you (you should probably keep those). But if you‘re relatively free and clear to take down any internal walls, you‘ll have an opportunity to keep as few as just one. Single-wall open kitchens are not uncommon, and they create the most open feel of any design—but you‘ll sacrifice a bit of storage to implement a one-walled open kitchen design.

Again, you‘ll want to pair the seating with the floor plan while maintaining the "less is more" concept. For example, it‘s a smart idea to pass on bulky armchairs to line the dining table in favor of slender bistro chairs or barely-there Lucite chairs to eliminate visual clutter. Backless barstools are easily tucked under the kitchen island, while built-in or stand-alone benches conserve space by easing against a wall in the breakfast nook.

They typically come in standard sizes, although they may need to be custom built to fit in your space. Kitchen cabinets take up important real estate in your kitchen, and they serve both functional and design purposes. Their main function in general is to serve as storage space for various food products, cookware and dishware. Basic types of cabinets include base cabinets and wall cabinets, each of which typically come in standard sizes.

If you‘re one of the many homeowners who spends a large amount of cooking or entertaining time in the kitchen, you‘ll know that the style of a kitchen space is just as important as its functionality—and you‘ll definitely benefit from knowing how to decorate kitchen walls.
Stefania Morice Uncategories, November 16th , 2017. Browsing the kitchenware aisle in any department store, it‘s easy to stray into a cluttered mindset and from there, a cluttered kitchen. Trendy single-use gadgets or designer pan sets are a sure road to a clogged kitchen and they won‘t make you a better cook.

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.

These are often constructed from thin but sturdy metal to ensure that they‘re light enough to hang but still feel substantial and create significant visual impact. Many homeowners opt for letters with meaning to the household, to represent initials or names.
Hanrietta Meyer Kitchen Decorating, November 16th , 2017. The two-walled design of a galley kitchen maintains the traditional "work triangle" that‘s essential to any effective kitchen design—this refers to the triangle created by the stove, refrigerator and sink. If cooks can easily access all of these kitchen features, cooking will be much more efficient and enjoyable. Galley kitchens generally achieve this design by placing two components of the triangle on one wall of the kitchen, and the third component on the opposite wall.

They can come in all different colors and shapes. Some will be made of plastic while others can be made of metal. Some will have seat cushions while others wont. Most of these chair seats are anywhere from 25 to 30 inches off the ground but you can find them at other heights as well. You will want to measure your counter to make sure you are getting the appropriate height. There are some chairs that will allow you to adjust the height but these will be more expensive. It is a nice option to have nonetheless. You will also want to make sure you buy kitchen counter chairs that match your kitchen. This is a design preference so its really up to you but chairs that seem to stand out too much might not look right.
Ivonne Caillauda Kitchen Decorating, November 20th , 2017. 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.
