With the tidbits I've discussed above and by keeping the people out of a kitchen, a kitchen size of 16'x10' or 12'x12' is very effective, with tons of storage. Making the kitchen a \"traffic corridor\" for people to pass through, the kitchen would need to double in size, and you're not gaining storage space with that size because all the openings to the kitchen are eating up what could have been used for cabinets.
Put a pantry in the corner between your tall cabinets. It doesn't have to be very big (4' x 4') and being in the corner will utilize all the corner \"dead\" space. The pantry would have a 2' opening at 45 degrees to the adjoining cabinets. The pantry walls could be 2x4 framed with drywall or 3/4\" MDF, but the wall shouldn't be taller than the height of the tall cabinets. This allows for crown molding (if you use it) to also be used on the pantry. Have the pantry open at the top, especially if there is a skylight above, to allow daylight into the pantry. Have shelves from the floor to top of wall. Put a \"cabinet door\" (same as the rest of your tall cabinets) on the pantry entrance, not a frame door like you'd use in the bedroom. By having a cabinet door the pantry, and the pantry walls at the same height as the cabinets, the pantry looks like a cabinet rather than a drywall opening.
Domestic kitchen remodeling is a relatively recent field. It is aimed at optimizing the work in a kitchen and it is related to upgrading the kitchen equipment according to the modern day requirements. There are various models represented for kitchen renovation and design. In this regard, Beecher provides an example of a model kitchen. The model kitchen was propagated for the first time and led to a systematic design of kitchens. All such designs are based on early ergonomics. The various design templates of these kitchen models include the construction of regular shelves on the walls and providing the cook with adequate work space.
