Until a few years ago, modernizing a kitchen meant purchasing a new refrigerator, range, a combination sink and painting the kitchen in a bright, shiny white. We have come a long way in only a few years. The most striking aspect of the contemporary kitchen is its color. White has been displaced by more sophisticated colors. Counter space has been increased. Storage has been engineered to provide maximum use of all available space. Everything is within easy reach. Today's kitchen blends into the home. It is not a room apart, but a part of the home's living area.
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?\"
These ideas were later followed by architects and engineers all over the world who employed it in housing projects. Usually the most important requirements for any kitchen are the cabinets, sink, stove and refrigerator. The arrangement variations of the equipment decide the specific type of kitchen. For example, in a single-file kitchen, there is a single wall arrangement, while in the double-file kitchen there are two rows of cabinets, and the stove and refrigerator are fitted into opposite walls. Similarly, as the name indicates, L-kitchens are the type of kitchens in which arrangements are made along the two adjacent walls and a table is placed along the third wall of the kitchen.
