New homes almost always have a breakfast/family room completely in view of the kitchen. The Great Room concept is simply a large social room with a kitchen in it. Walls between the kitchen and other rooms are being torn down in older homes in the effort to create multi-task, live-in kitchens. We have actually gone full circle, in a little over 100 years, by creating a modern version of a pre-electricity social/working kitchen.

But today you will be able to acquire tiles for your refurbished kitchen in a massive assortment of finishes, colors, shapes and sizes. Glass in a variety of sizes from big sheets to tiny mosaic pieces can be used with splendid effect within a kitchen. Glass could even be cast to look like marble tiles and using recycled glass in your remodeled kitchen can be an environmentally friendly preference.

I've worked in the kitchen industry for years and yet, nearly every show I go to shows me some new kitchen innovation that I had never previously imagined. Many of the people we speak to talk of having viewed a kitchen showroom, picking a really nice kitchen to have installed, only to see their dream kitchen at the same or lesser price elsewhere. Shopping around and doing your research is important; new innovations appear first at shows, i.e. the Ideal Home Exhibition, 100% Design and the Grand Designs road show. When they do, it takes a while before they are widely publicised and so going to shows is the best way to find out about new kitchen innovations. This is also particularly good, because many exhibitors will sell off their display items for less than the retail price to avoid carting them back to their warehouses and many others provide discounts to people who wish to get quotes from their stands.

The primary function in almost any kitchen will be the cabinetries, which is most important and first step to start kitchen. Most of the buyers never consider the cabinet part, because they don't see the cabinets behind the shutters at all. You kitchen design and layout will completely based on the cabinets you are going to have in your kitchen.

When recently refurbishing our home and deciding on our options for the new kitchen, we had not given much thought to the type of kitchen lighting fixtures that should be installed. Originally, we focused on appliances and cabinet layouts. After consulting with a few kitchen design experts we learned that it was just as important to spend time considering what kitchen lighting fixtures to install. I realize now just how important these are and what a difference they have made to the entire kitchen! We were so pleased to have been offered such excellent help from our professional kitchen planning expert, who not only helped us design the most amazing kitchen around our available space, they also gave excellent advice on the most superb kitchen lighting fixtures that were eventually added. We are sure that they helped us to save money creating a space in our home that is both useful and beautiful.

Typically, a beautiful empty room is created and then it is furnished. Instead of lining all the walls with horizontal bands of built-ins (and there are exceptions to this i.e. Frank Lloyd Wright's prairie homes) the wall spaces are interrupted with vertical elements like windows and doors or focal points such as a fireplaces. The walls of the room are separated into vertical segments instead of continuous horizontal bands. At blank wall areas and in the middle of the room, eclectic pieces of furniture create seating arrangements, while the wall-hung artwork and sculptural collectibles on display determine the room's personality. But the wall, floor and ceiling colors and textures permeate between all of these vertical elements acting as the 'glue' that holds the whole design theme together.
