Traditional and contemporary designs

Traditionally designed kitchens are highly ornamental and portray a historical insight. They are quite archaic but appear never to go out of fashion. The conventional look transforms your kitchen and grants it the ambience of a country-side log cabin. Most of the material used in a traditional set is wood; wood finishes, wood frames e.t.c. Modern design kitchens on the other hand, present a classy and sleek design and characterize present-time materials like glass, metal and laminated objects. Both designs blend perfectly with dark colors but lighter colors can be used on a contemporary setting.

Including an island

One influential element that always compliments a kitchen’s layout is and island which requires very little space by the way. As the name suggests, an island is an enclosed area in the kitchen surrounded by a substantial walking space. It could simply be a cabinet, a sink or any other object placed at the middle of the kitchen. An island will set aside space for other cooking equipment as it can be used to store cutlery and other utensils. An island also acts as a great centre of attraction for the kitchen as its beauty or tidiness reflects to the whole room. In a crowded kitchen, a kitchen island will provide extra seating space in the kitchen hence engaging interaction and mingling with other family members.
