The really keen consumer will likely attend a number of kitchen shows and showrooms before deciding on a kitchen. During that time they'll probably see a myriad of gadgetry that looks great at the time, and they'll want to add this to their own kitchen; one example of this is the 'Intelligent Fridge' that was supposed to order your groceries for you, warn you when you were running low on some items and more. Intel said that 'it will rule the roost' back in 1998, whilst The Independent reported on it in 2000 to say that they'll become a mainstay in future homes. 11 years later, is it that popular? No. In fact many would argue that it went the way of the dodo. They cost some $3,499, that's £2,248.84 to you and I. Why pay that when you can get a modern fridge freezer for under £1000, and buy a special case that allows you to stick your iPad or tablet to vertical surfaces? This would provide you with greater functionality, for a lower cost and you can move the iPad or tablet around the kitchen while you cook or clean. The lesson here is to think about the alternatives and wait... not all innovations catch on.

Sometimes we get so caught up in accepting how things are that we don't take any time to question whether we are going in the right direction. Technology has a way of pushing us forward, but sometimes we need to take a break to discover what form of progress is the most appropriate. For example, when electricity first came to New York City, there were layers of power lines attached to all the buildings and power poles everywhere. If we look at the old pictures of Manhattan we can't believe how ugly it all was, but to most of the New Yorkers of the period, they never even noticed the chaos. It took someone with just a bit of foresight to realize that burying all the power lines underground was a better way to go.

If you've been involved in designing or building a new kitchen in the past 20 years, you've probably heard the terms 'unfitted kitchens' or 'kitchen workstations' or simply 'kitchen furniture'. These terms don't refer to a dinette set, but rather to a completely different way of organizing a kitchen by using a few specially designed pieces of furniture instead of installing continuous lines of cabinetry and countertops. For some people, a 'furnished' kitchen is an intriguing idea, but others might say \"Why bother fixing something that ain't broke?\"

In the corners of the kitchen, install cabinets at 45 degrees to the adjoining cabinets rather than a \"blind\" cabinet or \"lazy susan\". While a 45 degree cabinet has some dead space, it utilizes more space than a \"lazy susan\", mainly because the cabinet shelves and drawers are square, and a \"lazy susan\" is round.
