Determining your own kitchen style is like choosing a new dress or a new car. It is a personal choice. As a homeowner/homemaker, it is best to choose a style that provides an ambiance for cooking and dining. Of what use is the kitchen's aesthetics if it does not go well with the kitchen's functionality or your family's comfort?
Now, current planning has opened up the kitchen to incorporate the social rooms again. New homes almost always have a breakfast/family room completely in view of the kitchen. The Great Room concept is simply a large social room with a kitchen in it. Walls between the kitchen and other rooms are being torn down in older homes in the effort to create multi-task, live-in kitchens. We have actually gone full circle, in a little over 100 years, by creating a modern version of a pre-electricity social/working kitchen.
Now...I'm discussing this portion last because different clients use their kitchens differently, and every person has their own taste. I'm not talking about the size (although it's related), but how many people they want in a kitchen. Some clients want everyone in the kitchen, including guests and relatives, to help in cooking or processing the meal, which means a larger kitchen to handle the people. Others don't want anyone but a few people in kitchen, so they're not tripping over people to get the meal finished, which means a smaller more efficient kitchen.
Be wary of kitchen gadgetry! The really keen consumer will likely attend a number of kitchen shows and showrooms before deciding on a kitchen. During that time they'll probably see a myriad of gadgetry that looks great at the time, and they'll want to add this to their own kitchen; one example of this is the 'Intelligent Fridge' that was supposed to order your groceries for you, warn you when you were running low on some items and more. Intel said that 'it will rule the roost' back in 1998, whilst The Independent reported on it in 2000 to say that they'll become a mainstay in future homes. 11 years later, is it that popular? No. In fact many would argue that it went the way of the dodo. They cost some $3,499, that's £2,248.84 to you and I. Why pay that when you can get a modern fridge freezer for under £1000, and buy a special case that allows you to stick your iPad or tablet to vertical surfaces? This would provide you with greater functionality, for a lower cost and you can move the iPad or tablet around the kitchen while you cook or clean. The lesson here is to think about the alternatives and wait... not all innovations catch on.
If you are planning a new kitchen in 2011, then doing some research on kitchen design trends is the key to making sure you will be the envy and trend setter for all your friends and family.
