KITCHENS ARE THE HEARTBEAT OF THE HOME. The gathering area for family interaction, working on your computer, doing homework, watching the news, sharing the daily event; getting connected & keeping the cook company. In this fast-paced life & the shortage of time, it’s important that efficiency of movement and the ergonomics are addressed but it should also be an enjoyable & creative experience bringing the family together in one place, simultaneously.
One such example is using under counter dish drawers helps a lot in efficiency & ergonomics for both emptying the dishwasher & ease of use. There are even under counter dishwasher drawers especially for singles, the elderly and for quick party glass turn around when you are running out. Countertops and food preparation areas are important for not only the aesthetics but for cleaning & sanitary maintenance reasons.
There are list of many important features to address when designing a kitchen; the choices of styles, layouts and components are enormous & also very personal. The style of the kitchen can be contemporary, traditional or transitional but the materials used should reflect the style of the interior & architecture. There are so many imaginative combinations of kitchen design ideas such as door styles, countertops & hardware today that there are literally no design roadblocks to achieving spectacular kitchen interior design both aesthetically and functionally. One example, I don’t use upper cabinets (where space allows) so as to lighten up the visual weight and allow areas for artwork. I then replace them with under counter drawers such as dish drawers adjacent to the dishwasher for ease use and unloading. Incorporating another available feature like touch opening & soft close drawers & doors or electronic touch opening & closing drawers.
There are so many different styles and sizes of sinks; silent dishwashers (sometimes 2); Pizza ovens, wine cellars, every configuration and finish of refrigerators & so on to fulfill your personal style and method of preparing your meals. Lighting has changed now “to anything goes” such as more formal crystal if you wish, to hand-blown Murano glass or converted & electrified reclaimed tin cans; your choices are endless.
