Now, current planning has opened up the kitchen to incorporate the social rooms again. New homes almost always have a breakfast/family room completely in view of the kitchen. The Great Room concept is simply a large social room with a kitchen in it. Walls between the kitchen and other rooms are being torn down in older homes in the effort to create multi-task, live-in kitchens. We have actually gone full circle, in a little over 100 years, by creating a modern version of a pre-electricity social/working kitchen.
Our kitchen planner also asked us to consider a choice of useful options of light boxes. These really have been an excellent decorative addition to the kitchen. The light boxes are in the shape of deep shelving, emitting light throughout the entire shelf both above and below each box. By adding two of these, one above the other, not only were we able to light up previously dark, wasted corners, we also created a useful display areas for those carefully chosen kitchen display items that we tend to buy, but often end up being stored away in the cupboard.
Bold and bright kitchen tiles may be required to introduce some life and fun into your kitchen. There is no rule to say that your tiles have to be neutral and blend into your kitchen, use colourful tiles either for the entire kitchen wall, on the kitchen splashback or as a decorative border of strip of tiled colour. There are plenty of colourful tiles on the market, a popular colour that stands out is red, which can make a statement in your kitchen.
