4258 Kitchen Ideas
The kitchen is the hub of the home, a place where lasting memories are made amid the smells of apple pie and the sounds of familiar conversation. The design style of your kitchen should be a reflection of your lifestyle and hence its layout, materials, appliances and cookware should all work in harmony to make life in the kitchen a pleasure.
Central to the aspect of harmony is the idea of flow, which in turn is affected by how the kitchen is laid out. Professional chefs work mostly in a galley kitchen, so a galley design may work for you if you are tight on space but big on cooking ambition. L-shape or U-shape designs tend to fare better in larger sized kitchens.
Also consider what your lifestyle is like and design a kitchen that fits your needs. Do your kids camp around the kitchen counter doing homework after school? What about adding a study nook at the corner of the kitchen. If you are a bona-fide cook surrounding by cookbooks, consider adding book shelves in the kitchen.
Kitchens are high-traffic, high-usage zones that endure a significant degree of wear and tear. While it may be tempting to forgo high quality appliances and cookware because of their hefty price tag, don’t forgot that you might save more money in the long run due to less frequent replacements. Higher quality products also tend to be more ergonomic and easier to use.
