· It is Uncomfortable for Family Members. With the increasing number of family members, the need for a large kitchen increases. If you are going to get married in the near future or expecting a child, it is best to consider the requirements of new family members. If the kitchen is not suitable for a large family, do not think of buying a new home. Simply consider remodeling the kitchen to increase its space. When you have small children in your home, it is best to baby–proof the kitchen. Ask the renovation contractor to build sturdy cabinets that do not cause any injury to small children. He will address your safety concerns effectively and build kitchen cabinets keeping the safety of your children in mind.
The galley or corridor style kitchen design layout gets its name from the galley of a ship. This kitchen is also referred to as a corridor kitchen layout or plan. With this kitchen plan all cabinets and appliances are in a straight line on opposite walls. This can be one of the most highly efficient kitchens to cook in due to its small size. Everything the cook needs is not far from hand and a lot of the back and forth movement by the cook can be eliminated here.
Keep your ceilings tall by putting in scissors trusses. You can make your walls 8 foot tall, but by adding the scissors truss (peak at 13 to 14 feet) will give you lots of visual space and a less confined feeling. And get a skylight in the kitchen. The opening for a skylight can be much bigger than the skylight itself. Get the opening from the peak of the ceiling to the edge of the wall, and locate the skylight near a perpendicular wall so it will disperse the light throughout the kitchen. Put some "niches" in your tall walls above the 8‘ line for greenery, or statues. Put "puck" lights in these niches for accent lighting.
Electricity brought many timesaving devices into the kitchen, as well as many inventions that pulled us away from the kitchen. Due to the innovations in the kitchen, fewer people were needed to prepare meals, so the kitchen lost a lot of its social importance and became a smaller, super–efficient working room. Built–in cabinetry, previously delegating only to Butler‘s pantries in larger homes, now became the best way to shrink the kitchen into an efficient workspace. With more leisure time, socializing was delegated to the living areas of the house, because the kitchen was too small.
