Keeping people out of the kitchen is very easy to do in your design, just make it difficult for them to get in. Use a wrapping countertop with just one (1) countertop opening into the kitchen, and locate that opening in the most difficult spot to enter the kitchen. This, along with the \"open floor plan\" is the most effective way to prevent unwanted kitchen traffic. The single kitchen entrance will psychologically keep them out of the kitchen zone, while the open floor plan (no walls) allows you to communicate with family and guests, while keeping them out of the kitchen.
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?\"
The counter tops are important not only for the aesthetics of the kitchen but also these are the surfaces that will come in contact with your food. There are many materials you can choose for your counter tops whether granite, engineered stone, plastic laminates or tiles. Your choice of counter top material should be durable to hold your food. Your kitchen designer can help you minimise stone waste and save on material costs.
