Is your kitchen a series of appliances - washing machine, dryer, and fridge? Well if you are interested in knowing about kitchen design - what is hot, what is not - then the next thing to look at is hiding these appliances with clever cabinetry. A stylish kitchen with no electrical appliances in sight is the latest trend in kitchen design. By using cabinetry artfully, kitchen appliances can be carefully hidden without losing ease of access or functionality - there are amazing innovations - now even a fridge can be 'invisible'. This way, the kitchen comes into its own as room which can flow into the rest of the design in the home, and loses that 'factory' stuffed with machines image.
Do you still have fluorescent lighting in your kitchen - well if you want the latest in kitchen design - and to know what is hot, what is not - fluorescent lighting is definitely not. One long globe casting a harsh light over the kitchen was never an idea that combined style with utility - it's not something you use because it's beautiful - it's simply utilitarian. The latest in kitchen design is LED's (light-emitting diodes) which use less than half the electricity of fluorescents and can last 10 times as long. As for what is hot in kitchen design - the newest buzz is on 'accent lighting', and layered kitchen lighting. Chandeliers and pendants are as in as you can get for task lighting, along with lighting for cabinets. These do the job, and add style and ambiance to your kitchen. When it comes to lighting, fluorescents are so last century!
The work triangle used to be the base of kitchen planning. This triangle is formed by the refrigerator, the cooking range and the sink. According to conventional rules, the triangle is the shortest distance between the fronts of each appliance. The triangle should not be longer than 8 meters (26 feet). A single leg should be at least 1.23 meters (4 feet) and not more than 2.74 meters (9 feet). The cook should be able to walk without hindrance from appliance to appliance. I followed this rule in my kitchen and I am really happy with it. Friends of ours have built a huge house with an equally huge kitchen. They did not deem it necessary to consider something as prosaic as the work triangle. The result is a beautiful kitchen where you have to walk seven meters from the fridge to the sink - cooking in this kitchen requires a lot of exercise.
