As an Architect, I try to utilize the best means of design to make a house more efficient and well utilized for the square footage. In this article, I'm dealing with kitchen design, and how to make it more efficient in use and storage, make it feel more open than a standard kitchen, but do it in a smaller size (square footage costs money).

Kitchen floors should compliment the interior features of your kitchen. The floors should go along with the kitchen style. Ask help from your designer to match up the colors.

This provided us with a safe and well-lit environment around the stove and above the sink and serving areas. The kitchen lighting fixtures used have become a vital addition to our kitchen that we hope will provide satisfaction to our family for many years to come.

Usually the most important requirements for any kitchen are the cabinets, sink, stove and refrigerator. The arrangement variations of the equipment decide the specific type of kitchen. For example, in a single-file kitchen, there is a single wall arrangement, while in the double-file kitchen there are two rows of cabinets, and the stove and refrigerator are fitted into opposite walls. Similarly, as the name indicates, L-kitchens are the type of kitchens in which arrangements are made along the two adjacent walls and a table is placed along the third wall of the kitchen.

New homes almost always have a breakfast/family room completely in view of the kitchen. The Great Room concept is simply a large social room with a kitchen in it. Walls between the kitchen and other rooms are being torn down in older homes in the effort to create multi-task, live-in kitchens. We have actually gone full circle, in a little over 100 years, by creating a modern version of a pre-electricity social/working kitchen.

This new refurbished kitchen now has matching kitchen light fixtures that not only enhance the theme of our entire kitchen but applies useful beams of light to all the right places. We no longer have dark corners and can now use the entire kitchen, so our careful planning of our kitchen lighting fixtures definitely helped it feel more spacious because of the careful lighting design. We do not have to struggle any more to see what we are doing, when baking, reading recipes, helping with homework, loading the dishwasher, or just peeling vegetables.

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.
