Kitchen faucets were formerly a clear-cut essential. But today you will be able to have faucets to complement any kind of kitchen in a assortment of configurations and finishes. There are new designs and new technology that can help your upgraded kitchen to a much more user friendly space.
If you are looking for a kitchen for sale or unique kitchen designs, then a look through the ages and the journey we have come through may just give you some inspiration. Planning a modern kitchen with all mod cons can be a lot of fun and we certainly are blessed in these modern times with many comforts and appliances to make using the kitchen a joy, and much easier to use. Understanding where we have been and where we are now in terms of kitchen usage is great as it gives us a deeper understanding of a room that the kitchen is not just there for preparing food, but also for social and interactive space.
Put an upper counter 8\" above your countertops (i.e. 6\" wall, 2\" thick upper counter). In an \"open floor plan\" concept, this 8\" of height hides a \"messy\" kitchen counter from view to the other rooms. It also gives you plenty of room for multiple electric outlets in the in the 6\" wall areas. The 6\" tall wall is the right height for 6\" ceramic wall tile. The upper counter is 44\" (elbow height) a perfect height for \"leaning\". This allows your guests to \"lean\" on the counter (out of the kitchen) and talk with you while you're preparing food (in the kitchen). It's also a good height for serving food or for tall stools as a breakfast bar. Not all of the upper counters have to be the some width. Some sections may be 9\" wide (just a top to the kitchen partition, while other sections of the upper counter can be 24'' wide, for serving food or as a breakfast bar.
