Skylights can be an answer to both the storage and lighting problem. By throwing light downwards and outwards, the need for small windows is reduced, freeing up valuable vertical wall space which can then be used for high-rise cupboards. With a galley kitchen, consider installing French windows opening out on to your garden. If you lay a deck right outside the exit you can leave the windows open during the summer, increasing the feeling of space by making a garden room.
At this stage, you should decide what your island countertop will be mainly used for –is it dining and a breakfast bar the main purpose of it or food prep will be everyday activity. If the first- stools and cantilevered countertop are basic. If you want to combine both functions deciding the shape of the island can be helpful. Think about it- will it be traditional rectangular island style, or a T or L-shaped island that will help you to create a multi-purpose area. For example, T-shaped islands can be useful for prepping food at one end while seating guests and family at the other.
There is a constant battle for storage over style and vice versa in kitchens. Designers have tried to address this by coming up with ideas which utilise every space available. The addition of under-cupboard plinth storage and ceiling-high cupboards helps enormously with storage, so take full advantage of every design trick on offer. Even large kitchens need all the storage space they can cram in. Large kitchens often double up as dining areas, so consider using a kitchen island as it offers a work surface, storage space and dining area in one.
You are aware that the color section sets the tone for the design appearance and the atmosphere of any home – even the simplest argument becomes alive, vibrant and memorable when the accurate color selection is applied. This is especially valid for the kitchen – a premise where usually one spends a lot of time of its domestic life. For season 2018 / 2019 the trendy color choices will range from natural neutrals, oak, petrol-green and charcoal (with black accents) to sage, the upcoming exotic shades (with Orange dominated palette becoming a key color selection) and vibrant and bold color choices like deep-blue or dark, intense tonalities.
