I am a big believer in the "Open Floor Plan" which has fewer walls and doors, with rooms tied together as open visual space. Keeping the Great Room, Dining Room and Kitchen "open" (meaning no walls between them) help make all the rooms "feel bigger". The wall removal helps facilitate the open communications between the rooms. You don‘t feel isolated in the kitchen when wall barriers are removed, and thus people don‘t have to step into the kitchen to talk to you. They can do it from outside the kitchen zone.
Use tall, 2‘ deep cabinets instead of overhead cabinets. 2 foot deep, 7 foot tall cabinets (or 8 foot tall) are also known as pantry or utility cabinets. With fixed shelves, they hold over 4 times as much stuff as an overhead cabinet. Put a line of tall cabinets along a back wall, and near the opening to the kitchen zone. By having a 2‘ wide, 2‘ deep, 7‘ tall cabinet near the Kitchen opening (usually next to the Dining Area) it can store all the glasses, dishes, platters, and bowls that you use on a daily basis. People don‘t have to enter the kitchen to get the dinnerware to set the table as you would with overhead cabinets.
The kitchen is the workshop of the homemaker. In the average household, she spends the equivalent of 3 full months a year – 24 hours a day around the clock – in preparing, cooking and serving food, baking cakes and pies, and washing pots and pans. Modernizing a kitchen to make it more enjoyable to work in, to add extra conveniences and time–savers is the ideal of every homemaker. The kitchen is a room that calls for a large outlay of money, but once it is wisely built, you‘ll be happy you made the investment.
With that in mind, it is important to mention that Masterclass Kitchens features five distinct collections of high–quality kitchen cabinets: the modern collection, classic, the Shaker kitchens, the inframe kitchen as well as the handleless kitchens, the latter being quite popular amongst owners of minimalist/modernly decorated homes.
