For some time now, there’s been a trend way from the formal dining room, that dark and sequestered place where heirloom stood. These days, the dining room is more likely to be almost an appendage to the kitchen, an inviting spot not only for eating, but also for converse with guest and family members, doing homework, etc. Because its proximity to the kitchen, this room just naturally draws everyone for activity. Keeping it open, with a transparent transition to the kitchen or the living room, better is for both areas. Preparing vegetable should be able to have a conversation with who is ever in the living area or the in the dining area.
A single built-in cabinet against one wall can act as serving surface as well as storage for your Chinas. Serving trays make it easy to set a table without interfering with the traffic in the kitchen. Lowering the ceiling or cove lighting can make dining more intimate.

Kitchen Sink

Hafele Kitchen Sink

Configuring space for your new kitchen sink is one of the most-important chores when you begin a remodeling project.  If you measure wrong, you may not only have to start over, you could find yourself cutting countertops to fit–and that can be costly. What begins as a project to add one kitchen element turns into a sprawling monster that eats up your budget.

Are you installing new counters and cabinets? Are you planning on relocating the sink entirely?  I recommend that you locate the sink where it belongs–with sufficient space that will not obstruct your work flow. Perhaps you need to measure the entire kitchen to account for more than the sink. If you’re doing a plan for the entire kitchen, you need to consider plumbing and electrical. I should remind you before removing the old sink, be sure to turn off the water supply. Remove the handles and faucet and lift the old sink out but do not forget to measure from the lip of the sink to the countertop.
As I always say to my co-workers, things can be done right with detailed plan.

Small Kitchen

The perfect kitchen is not necessarily large, neither should be cramped, but it should be well out. The goal is to be able to perform tasks with as little unnecessary motion as possible. Another strategy is to display rather than store serving trays, special glassware, and hush, china- a wall or open shelf that holds such items that is both functional and artistic. And be demanding of the cabinet space you do have, corner cabinets will be much functional using rotating wire basket, that can be use for pots and pans.

Single large sink is more practical than double kitchen sink. Kitchen can be filled with appliance like toasters, mixers, blenders, and microwave ovens and alike, with a cabinet tucked into odd spaces.

Bar or breakfast nooks can also be integrated in a kitchen design. Islands are normally considered luxuries in small kitchen but can be a clever and safe way to store valuable plates and glasses is to incorporate it to the island and stand them on its side.

Tiles, Glass and shiny object  such as stainless handles can make a trick on your small kitchen.

Talk to your designer or contractor; let them know what you want and what you really need. There will be lot storage and useful spaces in the kitchen can be done as long as it is planned and well designed.
