When designing with furniture, spaces must be created between each piece that allow the 3-D character (3-D in that furniture is made with at least 3 finished sides) of each piece to be appreciated. These spaces are most important as they allow the design theme of the adjacent room to continue uninterrupted into the kitchen. The spaces allow the wall, ceiling and floor coverings (the architectural finishes) to instantly meld the kitchen and family room into one homogeneous space in a way that is impossible to do with horizontally designed cabinetry. The spaces define the room's personality and allow the furniture to become more eclectic as well, emulating the same design techniques used in the design of the family room. No longer must the kitchen have just one color of wood, or one door style or one countertop material. The spaces allow all of these elements to change more readily. For a clear example, think of an open-plan log home where all the interior walls are exposed logs. A furnished kitchen allows the logs to be seen between each piece, which helps to unify the open-plan room whereas a horizontally designed cabinetry filled kitchen covers up all the logs. In an open-plan loft design where the kitchen is always seen, a furnished kitchen can blend seamlessly into the other casual seating groupings by allowing all the architectural finishes to meander between all the pieces and hold everything together.
Use tall, 2' deep cabinets instead of overhead cabinets. 2 foot deep, 7 foot tall cabinets (or 8 foot tall) are also known as pantry or utility cabinets. With fixed shelves, they hold over 4 times as much stuff as an overhead cabinet. Put a line of tall cabinets along a back wall, and near the opening to the kitchen zone. By having a 2' wide, 2' deep, 7' tall cabinet near the Kitchen opening (usually next to the Dining Area) it can store all the glasses, dishes, platters, and bowls that you use on a daily basis. People don't have to enter the kitchen to get the dinnerware to set the table as you would with overhead cabinets.
First, design your kitchen for timeless style and the future, not fashion. Most of us are aware that kitchen fashions come and go; we don't want to be spending thousands on a kitchen that will last a decade when its fashionable style will barely make it to the end of the year. This is reasonably obvious. The point I'm trying to make, is that kitchens are expensive, and given how long they last... you will probably want to update and change it. So if you latch on to a fad fashion, your chances of getting matching, or at least similar doors and accessories is unlikely. If you stick to say, a type of style like a minimalist, colonial or rustic one, in five years' time it's more likely that you will find parts of other kitchen ranges that you can blend into your own; this is particularly important if you decide to upgrade from an oven to a much larger range cooker, or switch to other appliances where much of your kitchen will need to be hacked away or replaced to accommodate it.
