There was a time when kitchens were treated just like every other room in the house, and no special attention was paid to lighting or decor. Many older kitchens just feature a single hanging light fixture, regardless of the size, shape or color of the room.
Kitchen islands used to be the area where friends and family would gather as well as providing that extra counter space we cooks love so much! Kitchen islands are now not just an area to have extra counter space. They can include a stove top, prep sink, small fridge, microwave, wine cooler, bookcase, and numerous other items for the kitchen.
One of the largest pros to a kitchen island is having that space for friends or family members to congregate in the kitchen area. One can place bar stools, or high seated chairs up against a kitchen island which invites that comfort zone. Most of us are aware that people tend to congregate to the kitchen area, after all it is the heart of the home.
The modern family today is indeed a very different unit to only a few generations ago. In terms of day to day activities each family Member tends to be independent and much more advanced. This is expressed in the family cohesion, their interactions and their daily work, while also uniting themselves as a family unit. It should therefore come as no surprise that the design of the modern family home differs greatly. The trends in the design of the individual spaces within the house must also be kept pace, as they develop to comply with the needs of the occupants.
