It can be difficult to envision the look you want. You've spent years in this kitchen and have grown accustomed to the usual look. A good place to start planning your DIY kitchen design and remodeling project is at the library. Page through the home decorating magazines. Look for issues that focus on kitchen designs. There are also magazines dedicated to the kitchen. Notice different arrangements, color schemes and features, such as pantrys, islands, breakfast bars and lighting which you find attractive. Of course, you may not be able to fit everything you want or like into your kitchen design, but these magazines will provide all the food for thought you'll need. Photocopy pages of kitchens with particular features you'd like to integrate into your DIY kitchen design and remodel. Pencil in notes of color schemes and note the manufacturers of particular products (usually in the index) that you like.
On the other hand, the family room, or the social area of the great room is designed in a completely different way. Typically, a beautiful empty room is created and then it is furnished. Instead of lining all the walls with horizontal bands of built-ins (and there are exceptions to this i.e. Frank Lloyd Wright's prairie homes) the wall spaces are interrupted with vertical elements like windows and doors or focal points such as a fireplaces. The walls of the room are separated into vertical segments instead of continuous horizontal bands. At blank wall areas and in the middle of the room, eclectic pieces of furniture create seating arrangements, while the wall-hung artwork and sculptural collectibles on display determine the room's personality. But the wall, floor and ceiling colors and textures permeate between all of these vertical elements acting as the 'glue' that holds the whole design theme together.
In fact, in medieval ages, peasants did not have their own kitchens. Public kitchens were used and only the rich or wealthy had their own kitchen, usually with a cook. It is a world so far removed from our modern way of life, and so fascinating. Cooking was mostly done over an open fire and was obviously a much lengthier and harder process than we are used to today. Fires were used to keep warm and to cook and food was obviously very basic. But even our earliest ancestors enjoyed sharing a meal with others and it has always been considered a social event, even in the early days of mankind.
Why has this happened? There are too many reasons to list here, but they all seem to relate to time. With the development of the 2 career families and single head-of-household families, there isn't enough time in the day to dedicate a lot of it to cooking. Again, innovations (i.e., microwaves, pre-prepared and frozen foods) have allowed us to spend less time cooking during the workweek. And when we are cooking, we don't want to miss anything that is going on around us. On weekends, we may relax in the kitchen/family room by watching TV or even entertaining friends by cooking elaborate meals.
Styles: Depending on your kitchen furniture and overall room scheme, you will need to select tiles that match and complement its surroundings. When decorating your kitchen it is always best to follow your heart rather than what is in fashion, as fashion and trends change all the time and you will probably not change your entire kitchen quite so often!
