A good general rule for enclosed kitchens is to place it in the center of the room. That way it’s equally accessible from all sides and won’t be an obstacle for people walking through. That placement might not work best for all kitchens, however. A perimeter island, for example, might work better with open floor plans. Size and shape are also determined by room’s layout; Allow for at least 36-48 inches between the perimeter of the island and the surrounding cabinets so there’s enough room for people to move around.
In recent years, formal dining spaces have experienced a plunge in popularity. While it once was unthinkable to have a home without a dedicated room for hosting your family and friends, today’s homeowners are breaking tradition in favor of more relaxed interiors.
The secret to getting a warm contemporary kitchen is building a foundation of shapes that embodies contemporary style. From there, you can add features — in the form of color or material — that bring warmth to a kitchen. “Achieving a contemporary look that is also warm requires attention to balance, proportion and combinations of finishes, colors, textures that bring the space to life,” says Megan Padilla, senior designer at , in Silver Springs, Maryland. To get started, let’s look at the basic shapes and elements that set the stage.
These days, dining is going casual. For those opposed to dedicating a whole room to formal entertaining, consider carving out a separate area of your kitchen for the task. A dining nook gives you the extra seating you need while still remaining useful in your day-to-day life.
