Texture: Depending on the style of kitchen you choose, the texture of the kitchen finish will come in to play. Let's say your choice is a contemporary kitchen, then you will have the choice between a high gloss or matt finish. High gloss kitchens are still very popular, but expect to see more matt finishes in 2011. High gloss kitchens are easy to clean but can show up marks and finger prints quite easily. Matt finishes are easy to keep but don't show up marks as much as high gloss.
I am a big believer in the \"Open Floor Plan\" which has fewer walls and doors, with rooms tied together as open visual space. Keeping the Great Room, Dining Room and Kitchen \"open\" (meaning no walls between them) help make all the rooms \"feel bigger\". The wall removal helps facilitate the open communications between the rooms. You don't feel isolated in the kitchen when wall barriers are removed, and thus people don't have to step into the kitchen to talk to you. They can do it from outside the kitchen zone.
We really have come a long way in cooking and kitchen designs. A modern kitchen is now quite different to early kitchens thanks to developments in electricity, water pipes and other materials. Today's modern kitchen includes so many functions and appliances those generations between us could never imagine. If you take a journey back over the history of the kitchen from the beginning, you can see what sort of luxury we have now.
