As homeowners, we all find ourselves wishing for more space every now and then, and more often than not it’s in the kitchen. It’s the place where a lot of time is spent, with lots happening and it’s constantly the place that seems smaller than it is. Plus, it is often a smaller room in any floorplan. While we may not be able to actually make your kitchen any bigger, here are some tips as to how to make your kitchen seem a lot bigger than it is.
You’ll also need to consider your glazing choices carefully, as this can make or break a design – do you want bi-fold or sliding doors? Would rooflights help bring natural light into the depths of the room? Now is the time to make these major decisions.
If you're not accustomed to mixing and matching materials, the first step is to look for inspiration elsewhere. By thumbing through kitchen design magazines and books and wandering through model kitchens at home centers and kitchen showrooms, you can train your eye. You can learn to appreciate how combining a wide variety of appealing materials, rather than just a few, can stimulate the senses.
In the food preparation area, the kitchen triangle is the usual standard. It’s actually an arithmetic formula: The sum of the distances from sink to stove to refrigerator and back again should not be less than 12 feet nor more than 22 feet. Furthermore, the kitchen triangle rule specifies that no one side of the triangle should be less than 4 feet nor more than 9 feet. This rule works for almost all kitchens, with the exception of tiny galley kitchens and giant professional ones.
