The choices for kitchen appliances have grown far beyond the standard stove, oven and dishwasher. Today’s cook can choose from a variety of special appliances that fit his or her particular cooking style. Just about every cooking surface or appliance imaginable can be incorporated into kitchen design ideas. A fun kitchen from Monogram of Canada features the company’s built-in wall pizza oven that has its own integrated ventilation system. No more take-out because pizza lovers can get professional results at home!
Nowadays freestanding cabinets are so rarely seen in kitchens that when they do appear they look unusual, unnatural and intriguing. There was a time, however, when everything in the kitchen was free and movable and that included both appliances and furniture, the only exception being the sink. In the 1940s, however, came a period when freestanding kitchen cabinets were considered highly impractical and out of fashion and when the style we now consider conventional was favored. Right now we’re seeing a comeback of freestanding cabinetry and we’re rediscovering all the things that made them so appealing in the first place.
Contrary to what you may think, freestanding kitchen cabinets are actually more easy to install than the conventional types. You may not even need the help of a professional which brings us to what is possibly the greatest advantage of all: the ability to retake control of your kitchen and to be in complete charge of its look, configuration, placement and even installation.
Ceiling lights or pendants above the island are standard choices for this hard-working space. New alternatives for kitchen design ideas when it comes to lighting are moving from up above to lower, functional areas of the space. This Bauformat design features lighting under the edge of the counter that casts light into the drawers when opened. This a great feature that makes it easy to find needed items. No more digging around in dark drawers, searching for a specific tool.
