Do you really need a one? Not really. But you’ll inevitably get that wall dirty while cooking or washing dishes, and an easy-to-clean surface can make messes easier to wipe up, especially if your stove doesn’t have a one built in. And almost any type of material can work–from bamboo to corkboard–as long as it’s properly sealed.
However, don’t call these spaces a thing of the past just yet. These 2017 dining room trends prove that even the most outdated interiors can be modernized. Trust us when we say these are not your grandma’s dining tables.
The contemporary effect of floating cabinets makes a kitchen space memorable. Floating lower cabinets showcases your flooring while opening the space up. The look is surprisingly functional and ergonomic, since a cabinet’s storage area near the floor is often hard to access or difficult to use for those with back problems. To showcase floating cabinets, add lighting beneath them to cast a contemporary vibe and glow.
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.
