Kitchen Ideas / March 19, 2018 / .
For casual seating at your island, you may want bar stools or pub-style seating that will fit your kitchen island design. Measure carefully the height of the island top by considering the distance from the floor to the underside of the surface – that will help you to ensure that there is enough room for proper leg movement before determining the style of the seating that will work best for you.
Skylights can be an answer to both the storage and lighting problem. By throwing light downwards and outwards, the need for small windows is reduced, freeing up valuable vertical wall space which can then be used for high-rise cupboards. With a galley kitchen, consider installing French windows opening out on to your garden. If you lay a deck right outside the exit you can leave the windows open during the summer, increasing the feeling of space by making a garden room.
You will also need to consider how many seats you can fit at your dining space because it is important to leave enough room between seats so people can eat comfortably -without rubbing elbows, – if possible. And at last, one important note when discussing size – no island countertop should be more than four feet wide so that you can, without stretching, reach the middle of it.
Thanks to new technologies, innovations and designers’ imagination – there are so many possibilities for kitchen design and arrangement that leading when we select one for our home, should be only our lifestyle, location and sense of taste. For people who live in the city, the possibilities are infinite: small and functional kitchens, jazzy urban compositions, fabric produced articles, innovative inventions that create surfaces resistible to damage and erosion and so on. For the ones that prefer more natural lifestyle and want to feel the connection with nature – the trends leading to more rustic design, the recycled materials selection and natural composition should be more suited. Just take your pick and enjoy.
