Traffic: The kitchen should not be perceived as an island; it needs contact with the outside world that is accomplished by car. You can have the adjoining room used a garage attached to the kitchen or have the back door lead to the driveway, so you do not go through much hassle bringing in your groceries or taking out your trash. You can also have a mud room minimize the traffic within your kitchen since it acts as a staging area for trips out of and into the house. It creates storage for coats, boots, and hats, buffer from cold air, or you can put pantry shelves to hold items that are not meant for immediate use. Once all this activity is redirected from your kitchen, you will have more space for eating and cooking.
1. Kitchen Fixtures: This may be a total surprise for some people, but kitchen fixtures, including sinks and faucets, are now available in a wide variety of colors. Years ago, it was either white ceramic or metal silver. The best part is that replacing kitchen sinks and faucets is relatively easy and inexpensive. Homedepot.com has some of the best selection of kitchen fixture designs and colors. By the way, high gloss black cast acrylic is quickly becoming one of the most popular colors for kitchen fixture because it is easy to clean, easy to maintain, and easy on the budget. Plus, the high gloss color literally shines.
There are four basic types of kitchen lightings that are available. They are the accent, ambient, task and the decorative lighting. In order to make the kitchen utilizable, task kitchen lighting is used. This lighting is perfect for chopping vegetables with a sharp knife or reading your favorite recipe. The appropriate location of task lighting is between the working area and the person running the kitchen.
Modern homes are often much too small for kitchens of this size unless, of course, it is a kitchen/diner - in which case, the decor of your kitchen decorating ideas need to take that into account. There is often a lot of actual wasted space in a large kitchen, requiring the person who uses the kitchen on a daily basis to cover a considerable distance between cooker, sink and work surfaces. This is often not particularly conducive to the most efficient use of a person‘s time. Reducing this ‘working triangle‘, as it is called, is one of the more fundamental aspects of good kitchen planning and something that also needs to be factored into any kitchen decorating ideas. This has led to the innovative kitchen island which sits in the centre of the kitchen and often houses the sink, work surfaces and usually the hob.
