But typically, the kitchen portion of the great room still looks like and is organized like the super efficient, work-only kitchen mentioned above. It is lined with horizontal bands of cabinetry and countertops that are interrupted only by exposed hi-tech appliances. Designers promote this 'laboratory' look because it is easy to design and it truly is the only kitchen design concept that most people understand. Most kitchen layouts are created by drawing a line 2 feet out from every wall (to indicate cabinetry) and then if there is room, an island (the bigger, the better) is drawn to act as a buffer between the kitchen and family room. The room's personality is determined by the design of the backsplash, and it depends on the color uniformity of the cabinetry and appliances to hold the design theme of the room intact.

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.

I am a big believer in the \"Open Floor Plan\" which has fewer walls and doors, with rooms tied together as open visual space. Keeping the Great Room, Dining Room and Kitchen \"open\" (meaning no walls between them) help make all the rooms \"feel bigger\". The wall removal helps facilitate the open communications between the rooms. You don't feel isolated in the kitchen when wall barriers are removed, and thus people don't have to step into the kitchen to talk to you. They can do it from outside the kitchen zone.

Let's say your choice is a contemporary kitchen, then you will have the choice between a high gloss or matt finish. High gloss kitchens are still very popular, but expect to see more matt finishes in 2011. High gloss kitchens are easy to clean but can show up marks and finger prints quite easily. Matt finishes are easy to keep but don't show up marks as much as high gloss.

Let's say you've got your heart set on new paint and flooring, matching appliance covers, new cabinet facings and counter top coverings, track lighting, an island and a window greenhouse. Wow! Now that's a brand new kitchen. Sounds ambitious. Now let's break this makeover down into separate projects, done over a period of time. The idea is to organize each task such that your budget allows completion, while keeping your kitchen usable during that period, as much as possible.
