Kitchens are the center place of our home where we eat, prepare food and socialize with our families all in this one room. The kitchen must be functional so that we can prepare food and it must also be open and inviting to make people feel welcome. When you are designing your kitchen you must take all uses of this space in mind. Here are some traditional kitchen alternatives that will make your kitchen welcome and functional for your friends and family.
Combine functions to save space
One of the biggest space hogs in the kitchen is countertops for food preparation and a table with seating for your entire family. Try combining these two items into one big island with seating around the perimeter. You can use the table for food preparation then put place settings out to serve your food. This is a great idea for small homes or apartments to save space and not be crowded. If additional seating is needed then add leaves or make the table expandable so that it takes up less space when you do not need it.
Decorate with kitchenware
We like to decorate our kitchens just like every other room but when there is a lack of space then decorations are just in the way. Dishes and utensils can serve dual purpose as tools for eating and then decorations. Use shelves to store dishes and display plates so that the pattern can be seen. When you decorate your kitchen this way it will be a great way to save space and clutter while making it easy to get to the tools you need while cooking.
There are alternatives to the traditional kitchen that will make your space more functional and inviting. By combining functions of typical things in the kitchen you can break away with traditional kitchen alternatives and have innovative designs and decorations.
