Planning an open plan kitchen-diner

Planning an open plan kitchen-diner

An open plan kitchen-diner is everybody’s dream. If your kitchen is looking a little dingy, perhaps it’s time to rip it out and start again. Here’s how to create a stylish look in a big space – and on a budget.

Why have a kitchen–diner?

We all want a kitchen –diner, whether its family–sized or petite. After all, not only is a dining area highly practical it’s also one of  the  first things buyers will look for when the time comes to sell up. Knocking through a dining room to make an open–plan kitchen is worth the investment and even fitting a breakfast bar in a small kitchen is a very good move.

What goes where?

If possible, your eating area should always be nearest the garden. If you live in a flat, put the table near the windows. If you do have a garden you’ll have the option of installing French or concertina doors, which means you can open up your kitchen to the outside space. Read more »

Cabinets

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

Designing your own kitchen cabinets is a complicated process that is best handled by skilled professionals.

cabinets

Kitchen cabinets can be customised when it comes to both style and size.

However, whether you’re going to have an active part in the process or not, there are definitely some things you should consider. For starters, think about where you want everything stored and how this should reflect the layout of your cabinets.

For instance, a kitchen cabinet that is designed to store small plates and bowls will have much different dimensions to one that is made for storing large pots and pans. Most people simply get their kitchen cabinets fitted and then fill them up. The right way to go about things is to consider where you want things stored and tailor your cabinet design to match up with this.

Putting the effort into making your own decisions with your cabinet design can really pay off. When you’re using your kitchen to cook or even to just carry out small tasks like making a cup of tea, you’ll find things so much easier having everything to hand. If you’ve got a large kitchen with plates and bowls on the other of the room to knives and forks it can be incredibly frustrating marching up and down the kitchen between the two.

“Green” Cabinetry

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

You might not think of your kitchen or bath cabinets as having an effect on your home’s air quality, but some materials and finishes used in their manufacture may contain formaldehyde, which, if inhaled, can cause a condition that increases your sensitivity to other chemicals, such as those in paints, finishes, and even cosmetics. Even small amounts of formaldehyde can increase your risk of nose- and lung-related cancers.

Stock cabinets are often made from medium- density fiberboard (MDF), which is essentially the waste from lumber mills (sawdust and shavings) pressed together with resin to create a solid piece of material. That resin, and some of the finishes used to stain and seal the members, contains formaldehyde.

To avoid the health risks and environmental effects of formaldehyde, you can install cabinetry made of PrimeBoard or of solid wood. Unlike MDF, PrimeBoard is made from wheat straw and a non-formaldehyde resin. If you choose solid wood, try to go with something environmentally sustainable such as bamboo. Cabinets should be made entirely of these alternative materials, not just the doors or drawer fronts.

“Green” cabinetry can be hard to find and is expensive because only a few manufacturers produce it—although more are beginning to offer formaldehyde-free products. To keep your budget in check, try looking for used solid-wood cabinets at salvage-supply stores, and install metal shelving where its appearance won’t be prominent, such as in the garage or pantry.

Unless you’re adept at carpentry projects, installing cabinetry is a job for a professional with the right skills and tools, especially for base cabinets, which will also need a countertop installed. If you are an experienced DIYer, you can find installation instructions for both cabinets and countertops in the Interior Improvements area of HomeTips.

Kitchen Storage Tips

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

Providing convenient and suitable storage for small, large and variously-shaped kitchen tools and equipment is one of the most important aspects of kitchen planning.

Whether you choose to have enclosed cupboards, or open shelves , the important thing is that everything should be easily seen, accessible and in the most convenient place.

Shelving

Open shelving

is cheap and easy to install, and suits people who like the look of their kitchen equipment and use it often. Shelves can be fitted where cupboards cannot, (for example, in front of windows, on the backs of cupboard doors, under sloping ceilings and in small recesses). An up-and-over shelf can also be fitted so that a heavy piece of equipment, such as a food processor, can sit in a cupboard and swing out, when required. Shelves can also be of different depths. Wider shelves are good for large plates, jugs and bowls, but it is useful to have some narrow shelves. One narrow shelf, running along the wall about 12 inches above the worktop and above any electric sockets, is indispensable for jars of herbs and spices and any other small items, which would get lost on deep shelves.

Cupboards

Enclosed cupboards can be very dominant in a kitchen and will usually set the style for the whole room. You can choose the simplest wooden, Shaker-style design and paint it, or you can have an elaborate, molded wooden kitchen in a dark stain and in between these, there are many variations of wooden, veneered or plastic-finished kitchens to choose from. If you plan carefully, you should not have to cover every wall with cupboards. It is often more pleasant to have some open wall space to hang a picture on, or to act as your home office. Having too many cupboards simply means you can shove things into them, which you don’t need and never even glance at. For a narrow kitchen where cupboard doors may open straight into your face, you can get cupboards with sliding doors, but these can be irritating to use and small things can often get hidden behind them.

Plan the interiors of cupboards carefully. A narrower shelf fitted inside a cupboard will mean that you have room to hang a set of shelves on the back of the cupboard door, which can be a more convenient way of storing small items. Low cupboards are easier to use if the shelves pull out on runners, so you can see what’s on them. Wire basket shelves will prevent things from rolling off. If the kitchen is next to the eating area, equipment for eating and table laying can be kept in a double-sided peninsula unit, to make more efficient use of the area.

Drawers

Drawers are among the most useful forms of storage. They can be any depth and size: shallow for linen, table mats and cutlery, square for dry foods and smaller items such as string and labels, and deep for upright bottles, saucepans, a basket or waste bin.

You can buy standard drawers and design the interior for a specific purpose (for example, fill them with wire baskets for vegetable storage, bottles and jars or laundry). Very narrow drawers, fitted with wire shelves, are available as part of some ranges of kitchen units, which can store nearly all your tins and dry foods in a very compact space. Such units can be short in height to fit next to an under-the-worktop refrigerator, or tall to fit next to a large refrigerator-freezer or indeed into any spare, narrow space in the kitchen.
