It is a place for friends and family to come together and enjoy time as well as eat food together. Our modern kitchens are a reflection on our personalities and of course there still is a certain class divide just like in the good old days, but less prominent. If a person has a lot of money, such as celebrities or wealthy business people, then kitchens in their homes are usually pretty grand. But with modern designs, fitted kitchens, and lots of different ranges, most homes now have lovely kitchens and kitchen renovation certainly has taken off in recent years.

As a homeowner/homemaker, it is best to choose a style that provides an ambiance for cooking and dining. Of what use is the kitchen's aesthetics if it does not go well with the kitchen's functionality or your family's comfort?

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.

Hopefully, by illustrating how kitchen design has evolved, you will begin to discover 'Why' kitchen furniture can be a great alternative to designing kitchens with cabinetry.

Most of us are aware that kitchen fashions come and go; we don't want to be spending thousands on a kitchen that will last a decade when its fashionable style will barely make it to the end of the year. This is reasonably obvious. The point I'm trying to make, is that kitchens are expensive, and given how long they last... you will probably want to update and change it. So if you latch on to a fad fashion, your chances of getting matching, or at least similar doors and accessories is unlikely. If you stick to say, a type of style like a minimalist, colonial or rustic one, in five years' time it's more likely that you will find parts of other kitchen ranges that you can blend into your own; this is particularly important if you decide to upgrade from an oven to a much larger range cooker, or switch to other appliances where much of your kitchen will need to be hacked away or replaced to accommodate it.

These really have been an excellent decorative addition to the kitchen. The light boxes are in the shape of deep shelving, emitting light throughout the entire shelf both above and below each box. By adding two of these, one above the other, not only were we able to light up previously dark, wasted corners, we also created a useful display areas for those carefully chosen kitchen display items that we tend to buy, but often end up being stored away in the cupboard.
