An island is also a logical place to change countertop materials. You could, for example, use laminate counters throughout most of the kitchen and splurge on marble, granite or stainless steel for the island.
Light is the second key feature that can be used to make your kitchen appear much bigger. The more light and bright a room is the bigger we perceive it to be. A room full of shadows or dark corners appears smaller as the whole space is not illuminated. The walls or corners can appear shorter than they actually are. By allowing maximum natural light into a room with a big window you can make your kitchen appear far bigger. You ultimately want to do whatever you can to fill your kitchen with light. Any windows that you have should remain uncovered by curtains or blinds. If privacy is still required a net curtain or frosting could be of benefit.
The best of small kitchen design focuses on function and flow. No matter the size of the kitchen, smart appliance placement can help create a comfortable, workable environment. Good design dictates that the refrigerator be near food preparation counters, and that sinks be placed next to dishwashers for easy loading. Meanwhile, stoves want workspace and handy storage for cooking accessories, cupboards for pots and pans, and drawers for utensils.
Today, the kitchen is the hub of the home. The advantage of having an open plan kitchen is it creates is a family friendly environment. With technology as it is, the kids can be entertaining themselves on an iPad and you can be doing something completely different. The family is no longer restricted to one room and one TV for entertainment.
