Ivonne Caillauda Kitchen Decorating, January 08th , 2018. A peninsula can be a great addition to just about any kitchen design, but it‘s particularly useful in smaller spaces where a freestanding kitchen island isn‘t feasible because it would take up too much floor space. Likewise, some homeowners with kitchens with three connected walls may want to explore taking out one wall to create a more open flow between the kitchen and dining room or kitchen and living room. Doing so can create a great opportunity to add a peninsula in the vacant space.

Stefania Morice Uncategories, January 11th , 2018. When establishing centers in the kitchen, think "less is more" and limit each center to the bare-bones tools necessary to do the job. Pluck the three most-used saucepans and a good skillet from the big-box gift of matched pots and pans.
Ivonne Caillauda Kitchen Decorating, January 12th , 2018. Not committed to a broad stroke of dramatic color? Then infuse color and pattern through window treatments, a room-anchoring rug, or upholstery in a built-in banquette. Both basics work to soften the kitchen and are a reflection of your personal design style, be it casual or formal, classic or modern. During the decorating process, remember to look up and assess your lighting situation. Although recessed and under-cabinet lights leave the smallest footprint in a small kitchen, a pair of pendant lamps above the center island or a trendy drum shade above the built-in breakfast nook will give the kitchen a finished look.

Since they are light weight, you can move them easily from room to room. They are a lot more convenient than bigger chairs especially if you have a small living space. If you have guests coming over, having enough seats for everyone can be a problem. You don‘t want to buy a bunch of regular chairs because you may not have a place to store them when they are not needed. When guests come over, you can simply pull these chairs out and use them.

Lucette Gallois Kitchen Cabinet, January 10th , 2018. One of the first ideas to investigate is whether or not your corner kitchen cabinet can become a drawer/cabinet combo. A recent innovation in kitchens is to create a swing-out corner cabinet. When extended, it folds out away from the corner, exposing all of the supplies in the cabinet for easy access. This is a relatively simple customization that can create a much more useful corner cabinet.
Lucette Gallois Kitchen Decorating, January 10th , 2018. Galley kitchens take their inspiration from the small, utilitarian kitchens found on ships and aircraft. Generally speaking, these kitchens feature two walls, with a narrow passageway located between them. In a traditional galley kitchen, the passageway measures anywhere from 4 to 6 feet wide, although larger galley kitchens may now expand that width and even feature kitchen islands for added seating, storage and food preparation space.
Hanrietta Meyer Kitchen Decorating, January 08th , 2018. 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.
