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?

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.

With the development of the 2 career families and single head-of-household families, there isn't enough time in the day to dedicate a lot of it to cooking. Again, innovations (i.e., microwaves, pre-prepared and frozen foods) have allowed us to spend less time cooking during the workweek. And when we are cooking, we don't want to miss anything that is going on around us. On weekends, we may relax in the kitchen/family room by watching TV or even entertaining friends by cooking elaborate meals.

Everything has been redesigned to make life-in-the-kitchen easier and more efficient. Exhaust fans under colorful hoods over the kitchen range remove the grime and dirt as well as unpleasant smoke and cooking odors. In the more modern kitchen, the old range-oven combination has been dis-placed by counter-top ranges and built-in ovens. Automatic devices practically make the kitchen run itself.

Ensuring that the light fixtures are directing light to the appropriate places, and that it lights up those subtle corners that otherwise would have been so dark and dismal, has made such a difference to the amount of use we have noticed from the entire space.

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.

A modern kitchen is now quite different to early kitchens thanks to developments in electricity, water pipes and other materials. Today's modern kitchen includes so many functions and appliances those generations between us could never imagine. If you take a journey back over the history of the kitchen from the beginning, you can see what sort of luxury we have now.
