Kitchen Layouts design

The traditional work triangle that separates the sink, range and refrigerator has evolved into a more practical “work zone” concept.

“We have gone from the traditional kitchen, where one person prepared meals to a multi-purpose room and a multiple-cook room, and this evolution has changed us from looking at one work triangle to multiple triangles, or ‘zones,’” says Mary Jo Peterson, principal, Mary Jo Peterson Inc. “With that in mind, we have to increase clearances and look at adding comfortable spaces in the kitchen.”

Still, these tried-and-true kitchen layouts still apply to today’s lifestyles—with modifications.

Ideas for a Kitchen Island

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

Finding the right kitchen island for your kitchen may not be as easy as picking one off of a home-improvement showroom floor. A kitchen island takes on meaning in a kitchen space when its design and function is tailored to the needs of the kitchen. Plan the design of a kitchen island to have the features and functions that will enhance and improve the work flow of the kitchen.

Work Surface

  • A simple island design is one that adds an additional work and serving surface to the kitchen. Some island designs incorporate a main sink or an additional prepping sink in the island that takes the food handling away from the dirty dishes.

    In addition to providing an extra work surface, cooktops can be added to a kitchen island as a stand-alone feature or with a prepping sink. These additions will transform the island into a central location for food preparation.

    Extended kitchen island counters can make extra room for seating. A curved island top mimics the feel of a round table that makes the island feel like a meeting place in the kitchen.

Shape

  • Every kitchen island does not have to be rectangular in shape. Design a kitchen island that has an S- or U-form whose curves will give a kitchen space a unique and stylish appearance.

    An L-shaped island can define two different work areas on the same island, such as one for prepping food and the other for cooking or eating.

Size

  • The available space in a kitchen will dictate the practical size of a kitchen island. Large islands can make large kitchens feel more cozy and welcoming, while small islands in smaller kitchens become functional, space-saving solutions in the kitchen for chopping food and for storing items underneath.

Materials

  • When you look to ideas for the kitchen island, a variety of materials can be used to make an island unique to your kitchen. The base of the island can be assembled with ready-made cabinetry or constructed of shelving and leg posts.

    Kitchen islands can take on new definitions when you think out of the box. Convert an old large table into an island; replace its legs if necessary, add wheels to make it mobile or add a shelf to make a storage space on the island.

Function

  • A kitchen island can function as a room divider between the kitchen area and an adjacent eating or living area in an open floor plan. Its layout can flow with the lines of the floor plan, where it takes on a custom shape, such as a triangle or pentagon.

    Kitchen islands can extend the storage square footage of a kitchen by incorporating shelving, cabinetry and appliances under its counter space. It is quite common to find storage shelves for books, bowls and plates, a small refrigerator, a dishwasher and warming drawers located in a kitchen island.

Architectural Features

  • The design and architectural features of a kitchen can be carried over to its kitchen island. Wood carvings, ornamental trim molding and posts and countertops that have decorative routed edges are some ideas for a kitchen island that makes it stand out as a showpiece in a kitchen design.

The essential element that conjures up the shabby chic look is a timeless elegance where furniture does not have to match, just so long as all your pieces have an inviting, slightly worn look, and are closely related in colour or tone. In fact, there are plain, no- wax vinyl tiles that look like expensive tiles.

Counter top space should be placed along the sides of the triangle, as this is where most of the food handling and preparation will take place, as well as small kitchen designers handling dishes and clean- up tasks. A modern kitchen is now pottery barn kids catalogue quite different to early kitchens thanks to the development of electricity, water pipes and other materials.

Laminate Kitchen Cabinets

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

Plastic laminate is a popular choice for kitchen cabinets because it is durable, stain resistant and available in an array of colors, patterns, and textures. It is also easy to clean, but just because it easy to clean doesn’t mean that you can neglect to give it maintenance.

Unfortunately, there are two common problems with plastic laminate countertops which include chipping and torn edges. However, due to advances in technology; you can repair a small chip for less than $20. Edge repairs cost about the same. The process for repairing a small chip in a counter top is exactly the same as filling the seam when repairing a torn edge.
Plastic laminate is nothing more than Kraft paper, resins bonded together under heat and pressure, and a plastic coating. You will notice with plastic laminates that the Kraft paper that it is constructed of leaves a brown edge. However, this brown edge can be covered and decorated with a stainless steel, brass, or wood trim. If you decide to go with a more expensive solid-color laminate, you will notice plastic sheets of the same color throughout so that no dark edges are revealed.

Laminate cabinets have several benefits that cannot be found with other cabinet materials. For one,they’re stain resistant. Due to their incredible
resilience, maintenance is a cinch. So when the next food fight breaks out in your kitchen, you can rest easy. Because they are man-made items,they are not limited to tones/patterns, and they come in a varied palette of colors. Additionally,laminate cabinets do not warp and are very strong,which means that you can store heavy items with confidence, knowing that there will be no structural damage to your cabinets.

Even if your kitchen layout is just what you want and the cabinets are in good condition, you can still give your kitchen a fantastic facelift by refacing the cabinet doors. If your doors are laminate, you can make your cabinets look brand new by following these simple ideas.

Refacing laminate kitchen cabinet doors need not be a difficult job and the results can transform your kitchen from a room that looks tired and worn-out to one that is bursting with style and color.Here are two ideas for refacing your laminate kitchen cabinet doors that should be relatively easy to carry out and will not cost a fortune.
