Just as fashion has changed over the years, so have kitchens. Designs for modern kitchens 50 years ago were different to what we see today, with the evolution of more technology. Many influences have come from Europe especially Italy, France and Germany. Some people really like to make a statement with their kitchens and go for very bright colours, or unique appliances and accessories. Others prefer a minimalist look and feel, while others still might like the classic or traditional looks.
Our kitchen planner also asked us to consider a choice of useful options of light boxes. These really have been an excellent decorative addition to the kitchen. The light boxes are in the shape of deep shelving, emitting light throughout the entire shelf both above and below each box. By adding two of these, one above the other, not only were we able to light up previously dark, wasted corners, we also created a useful display areas for those carefully chosen kitchen display items that we tend to buy, but often end up being stored away in the cupboard.
But typically, the kitchen portion of the great room still looks like and is organized like the super efficient, work-only kitchen mentioned above. It is lined with horizontal bands of cabinetry and countertops that are interrupted only by exposed hi-tech appliances. Designers promote this 'laboratory' look because it is easy to design and it truly is the only kitchen design concept that most people understand. Most kitchen layouts are created by drawing a line 2 feet out from every wall (to indicate cabinetry) and then if there is room, an island (the bigger, the better) is drawn to act as a buffer between the kitchen and family room. The room's personality is determined by the design of the backsplash, and it depends on the color uniformity of the cabinetry and appliances to hold the design theme of the room intact.
Size: Kitchen wall tiles are usually 100 x 100 mm, but it depends on your own taste. Another popular kitchen wall tile size is rectangular such as 100 x 300 mm, which can be fixed to the wall in a brick pattern. Kitchen floor tiles range from 333 x 333 mm to large format 600 x 300 mm, but there are many different sizes and styles available.
Keep your ceilings tall by putting in scissors trusses. You can make your walls 8 foot tall, but by adding the scissors truss (peak at 13 to 14 feet) will give you lots of visual space and a less confined feeling. And get a skylight in the kitchen. The opening for a skylight can be much bigger than the skylight itself. Get the opening from the peak of the ceiling to the edge of the wall, and locate the skylight near a perpendicular wall so it will disperse the light throughout the kitchen. Put some \"niches\" in your tall walls above the 8' line for greenery, or statues. Put \"puck\" lights in these niches for accent lighting.
