HOW & WHERE YOU WILL EAT. You may prefer to be able to eat in the kitchen by having an island with seating. The size of the island that the room will accommodate will determine how many persons you can seat. Seating at an island reduces the storage space available in the island, so the balance of the kitchen storage will need to absorb this loss. You can basically sit at three counter heights: chair height (29-30"), counter height (36") and bar height (42"). If you have an adjacent breakfast room, you may want to eat there in the interest of having more storage space in the island. If the room will accommodate it, you may like the idea of a built-in booth in the breakfast room or kitchen, in lieu of a typical table and chairs. Many clients like to have the option of eating in both the breakfast room and at the island in the kitchen. In some cases there is no breakfast room and the dining room serves as both breakfast room and dining room. In any case, you should give these and other possibilities careful consideration.
Use Backlashes to Show off a Unique Style of Kitchen. Another popular way to make your kitchen designs more unique is to choose varying patterns for your backlashes. Let your personality go wild in this area of the kitchen by creating a custom designed mosaic with varying colors and patterns. You can use tiles made of stone, ceramic or other materials in a multitude of available colors and designs. For instance, choose your favorite picture and form it with the tiles onto your kitchen backlashes or use different materials for each color. It is all up to your imagination. Whatever unique and innovative design you choose for your British kitchen designs, it is sure to be something that your family will learn to love and use every day since the kitchen is the heart of most homes.
If you choose to work with an established design company, you can gain control over your kitchen themes as well as the materials you want to be used. The only things that can limit you are the actual space of your kitchen and your creative imagination. There is no need to be completely original, because you can get ideas online as well as existing design galleries from bespoke kitchens. You can choose a design such as country, English shaker, or white modern kitchen design, and then customize the finishes, materials, and the way you want the kitchen to function. There are several benefits of choosing a bespoke kitchen design. Basically, it offers you the chance to enhance a basic design to make it your own. You can work with a specialist from bespoke kitchen designs, so you can be guided on how you can improve the style. You can also present your own design inspirations so that the designer can incorporate it into the overall theme.
UTILIZING YOUR KITCHEN. Are you an expert chef, who does it all: cooking, baking, barbecuing, or are you a minimal cook whose main goal is to just get a meal on the table for the family as expeditiously as possible, or are you somewhere in between? Do you always cook by yourself or do you often have family and friends help with the cooking? Do you often entertain and all flow into the kitchen while munching on your Brie between sips of chardonnay? Do you bake often and want a marble surface for that purpose? The questions can go on and on. Some clients have large, prestigious, homes and entertain frequently and/or have large families. They may have someone do the cooking for them. Some of these types of projects may need the full treatment, such as a butler's pantry or walk-in pantry, two islands, two refrigerators, two dishwashers, two microwave ovens, a wine cooler, a separate beverage cooler, a built-in espresso machine, sink, prep-sink and bar sink and glass-door cabinets to display the family heirloom china, etc.
