You can make your walls 8 foot tall, but by adding the scissors truss (peak at 13 to 14 feet) will give you lots of visual space and a less confined feeling. And get a skylight in the kitchen. The opening for a skylight can be much bigger than the skylight itself. Get the opening from the peak of the ceiling to the edge of the wall, and locate the skylight near a perpendicular wall so it will disperse the light throughout the kitchen. Put some \"niches\" in your tall walls above the 8' line for greenery, or statues. Put \"puck\" lights in these niches for accent lighting.

The counter tops are important not only for the aesthetics of the kitchen but also these are the surfaces that will come in contact with your food. There are many materials you can choose for your counter tops whether granite, engineered stone, plastic laminates or tiles. Your choice of counter top material should be durable to hold your food. Your kitchen designer can help you minimise stone waste and save on material costs.

Usually the most important requirements for any kitchen are the cabinets, sink, stove and refrigerator. The arrangement variations of the equipment decide the specific type of kitchen. For example, in a single-file kitchen, there is a single wall arrangement, while in the double-file kitchen there are two rows of cabinets, and the stove and refrigerator are fitted into opposite walls. Similarly, as the name indicates, L-kitchens are the type of kitchens in which arrangements are made along the two adjacent walls and a table is placed along the third wall of the kitchen.

It doesn't have to be very big (4' x 4') and being in the corner will utilize all the corner \"dead\" space. The pantry would have a 2' opening at 45 degrees to the adjoining cabinets. The pantry walls could be 2x4 framed with drywall or 3/4\" MDF, but the wall shouldn't be taller than the height of the tall cabinets. This allows for crown molding (if you use it) to also be used on the pantry. Have the pantry open at the top, especially if there is a skylight above, to allow daylight into the pantry. Have shelves from the floor to top of wall. Put a \"cabinet door\" (same as the rest of your tall cabinets) on the pantry entrance, not a frame door like you'd use in the bedroom. By having a cabinet door the pantry, and the pantry walls at the same height as the cabinets, the pantry looks like a cabinet rather than a drywall opening.

This specific type of kitchen is highly equipped with expensive and sophisticated appliances. The prime objective of these kitchens might not be the actual use of all the appliances placed in the kitchen. These are predominantly meant for impressing visitors and projecting the social status of the owner. Usually these kitchens do not require much remodeling as they are already highly equipped and laden with expensive appliances.

Use a wrapping countertop with just one (1) countertop opening into the kitchen, and locate that opening in the most difficult spot to enter the kitchen. This, along with the \"open floor plan\" is the most effective way to prevent unwanted kitchen traffic. The single kitchen entrance will psychologically keep them out of the kitchen zone, while the open floor plan (no walls) allows you to communicate with family and guests, while keeping them out of the kitchen.
