Mix up your surfaces. The cooking and eating zones on this island unit have been ingeniously divided up, thanks to different worktop materials. It is a simple trick that makes it instantly feel less like a workaday kitchen and more like a multifunctional space. Curvy, upholstered stools also help give the wooden bar area a more relaxed, comfortable feel.
A dull, dingy kitchen is never inviting. Lighten up your kitchen by: Letting in natural light during the day, Installing effective lighting solutions for when it gets dark, Installing LED lighting strips underneath work surfaces and lighting strips with automatic sensors in draws and cabinets, Replacing heavy cabinet doors with glass cabinet doors, Using display shelving instead of closed off high cabinets, Installing glossy flooring and work surfaces to reflect more light.
Extend the island top. In this long, slim kitchen, the owners have extended the top of the island unit, meaning people can tuck feet under without knocking knees while enjoying a cuppa. When they are finished, they can tuck the stools underneath to keep things streamlined.
Do I choose my cabinets or countertops first? Always choose the cabinet style and then the finish. Follow that with appliances, countertops and the backsplash, in that order.
