One of the biggest complaints about kitchen design is the lack of counter space. Considering all the kitchen activities that require a countertop, as well as appliances that are permanently located there, you want to fit as much open horizontal surface area in a kitchen as possible. An easy way to do this is by adding an island or breakfast bar to an L-shaped kitchen.
When it comes to kitchen islands, we generally think of additional storage, preparation and serving space in the kitchen. But you may be surprised to learn that kitchen islands can waste a lot of space. Choosing the wrong island or placing it in the wrong spot can be a mess, especially in a work area that gets overly cluttered.
Have you ever considered a shabby chic kitchen design to enhance the charisma and charm of your home? A wooden table is a great way to include a retro feature that doubles up as extra work space for those late night projects.
If (like us) you can’t get enough of the moody interiors trend, you’ll love our dark and dramatic kitchen design ideas.
If your kitchen is small, consider installing extra-long upper cabinets with molding for extra storage space. Place lighting or greenery along the molding to draw the eyes up. Always install cabinets over the refrigerator.
Think about all the steam, water and grease in the kitchen, and you’ll understand why installing a backsplash above the cook top and counters is a smart way to keep your kitchen clean. It’s much easier to clean grease off a backsplash made of tile, metal or plastic than paint or wallpaper.
