Combining functions is a great way to get the most out of a small space. For instance, with some small floor plans, you may have to sacrifice counter space or sink space along the wall in order to fit an island. But by adding the sink to the island, that becomes a non-issue.
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.
Adding an eating area to your kitchen island is a popular option, if you have the space. A raised counter, creating a two tiered island adds useful space to the kitchen while separating the eating surface from the food preparation surface of the island. This type of arrangement is great for families as the children can do homework on the raised surface, while other family members can be preparing a meal. The family can spend time together, yet keep their things separate from each other. The eating area added to an island can add useful space to the kitchen or help to define the kitchen space from other areas of the house.
If you want the kitchen to be the place, what will you do with the living room? It is interesting to note that the overall design of the modern house indeed changes, and we will certainly see a trend towards a more open plan and appropriate designed spaces, in line with the needs and demands of the true modern family in the future. Moreover, as the functions of our kitchens improve, this space becomes less a purely working environment from a technological point of view.
Think just about what could happen in this room, and the owner chooses to redesign and refurbish his home to focus on the area. In a wide, open plan range, one of the young people can do their college projects in an angle, the mom could watch the recent soap opera on a built-in screen next to the furnace, or a coffee or cocktail at the bar in the surroundings.
