With the tidbits I've discussed above and by keeping the people out of a kitchen, a kitchen size of 16'x10' or 12'x12' is very effective, with tons of storage. Making the kitchen a \"traffic corridor\" for people to pass through, the kitchen would need to double in size, and you're not gaining storage space with that size because all the openings to the kitchen are eating up what could have been used for cabinets.
But typically, the kitchen portion of the great room still looks like and is organized like the super efficient, work-only kitchen mentioned above. It is lined with horizontal bands of cabinetry and countertops that are interrupted only by exposed hi-tech appliances. Designers promote this 'laboratory' look because it is easy to design and it truly is the only kitchen design concept that most people understand. Most kitchen layouts are created by drawing a line 2 feet out from every wall (to indicate cabinetry) and then if there is room, an island (the bigger, the better) is drawn to act as a buffer between the kitchen and family room. The room's personality is determined by the design of the backsplash, and it depends on the color uniformity of the cabinetry and appliances to hold the design theme of the room intact.
A kitchen is a place in a house which has undergone a great deal of evolution in the history of housing and kitchen development. This ranges from the ancient open kitchens which had no means to freeze or thaw already cooked food. At that time food preparation started from scratch and food was cooked raw ingredients. It was before the mid-twentieth century that the concept of kitchen remodeling arose and it led to the development of more sophisticated, covered and equipped kitchens. This development also gave rise to the concept of precooked meals. It also changed the cooking styles and priorities of many people all around the world.
