Lately, a range of innovative materials have hit the kitchen industry that have allowed for all kinds of miniature revolutions. Corian is one such material; it's incredibly hardwearing and can be moulded into practically any shape or texture, allowing for glossy scratch-proof surfaces and worktops that seamlessly includes sinks, features, ridges and other useful elements of design. To show case the possibilities, the inventors of Corian teamed up with the designers of Disney's TRON to create incredible, futuristic home interiors purely out of the one material and an extensive use of blue LED lighting. It's not uncommon to source amazing Corian features and work tops and then ordering separate units from say, a German Kitchen and then combining the two. Honestly, look up the 'Corian / TRON' exhibition it's something special.

When designing with furniture, spaces must be created between each piece that allow the 3-D character (3-D in that furniture is made with at least 3 finished sides) of each piece to be appreciated. These spaces are most important as they allow the design theme of the adjacent room to continue uninterrupted into the kitchen. The spaces allow the wall, ceiling and floor coverings (the architectural finishes) to instantly meld the kitchen and family room into one homogeneous space in a way that is impossible to do with horizontally designed cabinetry. The spaces define the room's personality and allow the furniture to become more eclectic as well, emulating the same design techniques used in the design of the family room. No longer must the kitchen have just one color of wood, or one door style or one countertop material. The spaces allow all of these elements to change more readily. For a clear example, think of an open-plan log home where all the interior walls are exposed logs. A furnished kitchen allows the logs to be seen between each piece, which helps to unify the open-plan room whereas a horizontally designed cabinetry filled kitchen covers up all the logs. In an open-plan loft design where the kitchen is always seen, a furnished kitchen can blend seamlessly into the other casual seating groupings by allowing all the architectural finishes to meander between all the pieces and hold everything together.

You will be in your kitchen on a daily basis, so you have to choose tiles and a style you are happy to live with every day. White tiles can be fresh and airy, with a crisp and clean look to match the rest of your kitchen. Perhaps your kitchen tiles need to be understated if your kitchen furniture or worktops attract attention. You can still add style through the texture of the tile, or fixing the tiles in a pattern such as brick style, or adding border or decorative tiles to the white tiles which actually gives them more emphasis and definition.

If you have an older home, your kitchen may have appliances which don't match - that almond refrigerator you bought a few years ago, with the stainless steel dishwasher and a stove in that yellow-gold color so popular in the 70s. You're definitely up for a change! However, a kitchen remodel is one of the most expensive projects you can tackle. So, what's a viable solution?

I'm sure you've read plenty of other guides that proclaim to offer the 'top 10 tips' for something or other, that, in the end, turn out to be lists of highly generalised, unhelpful statements about things that you already knew i.e. \"Remember to set a budget, and stick to it!\", as if you were deliberately going to set a budget and then do your utmost to spend more than you intended.

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.
