Perhaps the most functional option of all is the kitchen island that also serves as a breakfast bar. Clever islands now feature stools that are stashed inside when not in use and end leaves that fold down to hide the stools. Use the island as a workspace, and then let people eat there when you’re not feeding the entire crew.
You can also consider hiding appliances entirely, behind cabinets or with paneling that mimics the look of your cabinet design. Clean lines give the impression of a larger space, whereas multiple appliances arrayed throughout the space can make it seem cluttered. The note about clean lines can apply to cabinets as well—you'll want to keep these as simple and unadorned as possible, since any intricate designs may serve to crowd the space.
There are plenty of tricks that can help you expand the appearance of depth, height and width in your kitchen, and the best way to start is at the bottom. Firstly, make sure that floor boards run lengthwise, to create the illusion of a longer kitchen space. If you plan to feature a backsplash or other wall design, consider arranging the tiles in opposition to the floorboards' orientation—this will help to create the illusion of depth in the space. Finally, consider raising cabinets or appliances off the floor—if they're flush, the entire space will seem shorter, but raising them slightly will give the appearance of a space with more height.
Some trademark characteristics of Shaker kitchen cabinets include flat paneled doors with rail frames, sturdy construction with quality wood, and utilitarian designs. In terms of materials, Shaker-style cabinets tend to use high-quality local American woods traditionally found in the northeastern United States. Examples include durable woods such as cherry, maple, hickory and quartersawn oak.
