Giovani Lesch. Kitchen. October 02nd , 2017.
Usually the corner space in any room is wasted space and this may not be a big problem in the living room or bedroom but in the kitchen any inch of space is valuable. So take advantage of the corner space and install drawers or open shelves. If you want to keep the knives off the counter top and close at hand, you could have a custom-designed piece like this one. The knives are stored inside the counter top. Such a design comes with restrictions. The knives must be completely encased so the blades don;t interfere with the contents of the drawers. I find pullout shelves to be very practical. It’s usually very annoying to have to get a dish or a pan at the back of the shelf and this system makes things a lot easier. Pull-out spice racks are also very functional. They occupy very little space and they’re easy to use.
The trend of making use of old, worn materials or items is a must in green living. As you can see in the above image, a salvaged cabinet comes alive in the kitchen, giving it an interesting piece of furniture that could have been part of a living room in its previous life. By leaving salvaged items a little worn and torn, this further makes them unique creations in the kitchen, while preventing waste in the environment. Stone in the kitchen is always a great natural material, but you can also choose from stone countertops that are made from recycled materials. This takes the green initiative one step further. Stone can be trendy and colorful, as can be seen from the countertop in the above image that is made from recycled wine, beer and Vodka bottles.
Ensuring that you have proper lighting in the kitchen is not just practical, but it can be a style element, too. Place light fixtures over the center of the room where you will have your kitchen counter. Make sure that the lights hang at a length that provides you with enough lighting. If you require extra lights, consider spotlights on the ceiling that do their job without getting in the way of the light fixtures. Now for the décor bit: choose light fixtures or chandeliers that have a striking design. Kitchen windows are an important part of the room because they add a charming element to it. Of course, bringing in extra light is also vital to prevent a dull kitchen. The windows are the perfect place for a bit of a style injection. A window covering or valance adds some décor delight to your kitchen while still letting the light shine in.
Make sure everything has its rightful place in a drawer or cabinet. This works especially well when you have enough storage space. Then, style the slick counter tops with a bowl of fresh fruit or two, for contrast and modern, chic design. Get it all off the counters and into the shelves. Hang a basket on the wall for the mail and then organize everything us in the no-door cabinets. It’s a stylish way to design the kitchen, but also a clean, organized way to have space to cook, bake and entertain on the tops of the counters! All you need is a decorative tray that matched your theme and style genre to help organize, de-clutter and personalize! Keep everything in the corners at bay by using little pieces like this to keep it all focused.
