Ivonne Caillauda Kitchen Decorating, April 28th , 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.
Stefania Morice Countertop, May 10th , 2017. Concrete can be formed with an "organic," natural feel, with a down-to-earth quality that is not common to stainless steel, laminate or other synthetic countertops. Each concrete countertop is handmade. If you know how to stain concrete, the countertop can incorporate almost any color. Textures, and even patterned imprints like floral designs, can also be added. Concrete countertops can also be embedded with stones, seashells and other items that interest you.
Macy Guillemot Kitchen Decorating, May 31st , 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.
Lucette Gallois Kitchen Decorating, April 04th , 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.
Stefania Morice Sinks and Faucets, May 26th , 2017. Kitchen sinks are typically made from stainless steel, enamel-coated cast iron, solid surfaces and composites. For clients who choose solid surface counters like granite or engineered stone, Isley recommends a stainless steel sink because of its undermount capability. Also if homeowners tend to be hard on sinks (Isley asks clients if they‘re prone to throwing things into their sink), stainless is often the best choice. When shopping for a sink, keep in mind that lower-gauge stainless steel makes for a better quality sink. Some people find stainless steel sinks noisy, but that‘s a problem that can be addressed by choosing a design featuring sound-absorption technology.
Macy Guillemot Kitchen Cabinet, April 17th , 2017. Modular cabinets come in upper and lower units. There are also full floor-to-ceiling units that can be purchased for use as pantries or closets as well. While modular kitchen cabinets aren‘t custom-built for your specific kitchen, they can be purchased and installed to meet your individual needs, thus making your kitchen unique. Combinations of upper, lower and full cabinet units can be grouped to fit the size and style of your kitchen. Additionally, modular cabinets come in a variety of finishes and colors to further give your kitchen a personal touch.
Pansy Godefroy Kitchen Decorating, April 13th , 2017. First, eliminate the extras. Exchange pendant lights for recessed lighting and swap space-hogging appliances for models that can be tucked in drawers. Secondly, make a place for everything and put everything in its place. To this end, consider a pullout pantry or extend a windowsill for an extra storage perch. So that your tiny kitchen layout works double-duty, install a retractable eat-in peninsula that doubles as counter/dining space. Opt for chairs that also serve as seating in the living room. Every culinary headquarters needs a space for dining. Whether you have an island or a peninsula, utilize this surface in your small kitchen design for cooking prep, dining and as a buffet for entertaining. Bringing in an island on casters provides a mobile dining space when you need, it and it can be rolled away when you don‘t. Another idea for designing an eat-in space in your small kitchen is to install a built-in booth to accommodate the tight space. With a thoughtful design, you can also use the space underneath the seating for extra kitchen storage.
