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.
Experiment with materials! Lately, a range of innovative materials have hit the kitchen industry that have allowed for all kinds of miniature revolutions. Corian is one such material; it's incredibly hardwearing and can be moulded into practically any shape or texture, allowing for glossy scratch-proof surfaces and worktops that seamlessly includes sinks, features, ridges and other useful elements of design. To show case the possibilities, the inventors of Corian teamed up with the designers of Disney's TRON to create incredible, futuristic home interiors purely out of the one material and an extensive use of blue LED lighting. It's not uncommon to source amazing Corian features and work tops and then ordering separate units from say, a German Kitchen and then combining the two. Honestly, look up the 'Corian / TRON' exhibition it's something special.
Although the development of these facilities reduced the cooking activities of many people, people's interest in remodeling and maintaining their kitchens still remained. This ultimately led to the field of kitchen designing and remodeling. Designing an open kitchen has certain advantages. Such a kitchen design helps the cooks interact with the guests and cook at the same time. It might also prove to be a platform for creative cooks and chefs who could show their abilities and cooking performances to an audience. But for these kinds of kitchens, there may be some difficulty faced by designers in kitchen remodeling.
