If you've been involved in designing or building a new kitchen in the past 20 years, you've probably heard the terms 'unfitted kitchens' or 'kitchen workstations' or simply 'kitchen furniture'. These terms don't refer to a dinette set, but rather to a completely different way of organizing a kitchen by using a few specially designed pieces of furniture instead of installing continuous lines of cabinetry and countertops. For some people, a 'furnished' kitchen is an intriguing idea, but others might say \"Why bother fixing something that ain't broke?\"
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.
So the question is, why not create a multi-task, live-in modern open-plan kitchen/family room by furnishing it rather than installing cabinetry? Why not blend the kitchen into the family room using vertical instead of horizontal design? Why must half of the room look like a sterile laboratory, while the other half of the room is filled with the personal touches that bring you comfort?
