Most modern house designs have the kitchen open to the garage or rear door and open to family room and/or other rooms such as breakfast areas, dining rooms, or hallways. This means the kitchen has multiple openings to handle these functions. Some kitchens also have \"island\" cabinets/countertops with two or more openings. All the openings to the kitchen allows people to come in, stand around, or pass through the kitchen from Point A to Point B somewhere else in the house. Also, one of the quirks of our human psychology is everyone eventually ends up in the kitchen. This design concept uses the kitchen as a \"traffic corridor\". These kitchens need a large amount of space to handle the volume of traffic. Again, some clients love the flow of people in and out of the kitchen. They just need a larger kitchen space for all this happen
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.
Keep your ceilings tall by putting in scissors trusses. You can make your walls 8 foot tall, but by adding the scissors truss (peak at 13 to 14 feet) will give you lots of visual space and a less confined feeling. And get a skylight in the kitchen. The opening for a skylight can be much bigger than the skylight itself. Get the opening from the peak of the ceiling to the edge of the wall, and locate the skylight near a perpendicular wall so it will disperse the light throughout the kitchen. Put some \"niches\" in your tall walls above the 8' line for greenery, or statues. Put \"puck\" lights in these niches for accent lighting.
