Kitchen Space Layout

Kitchens should ideally have wide, free spaces. At first, you might think this is impossible, especially if you have a very limited area reserved for your kitchen. Sometimes though, making free space all depends on you making the right arrangements. You can create more space in tight areas for example by installing overhead storage areas, utilizing corners for appliances or side carts and using stools and bar counters instead of tables and chairs.

If you have a lot of cash for remodeling, you can change the entire arrangement of your kitchen. You can settle for a galley type or L-shaped kitchen to save floor space.


The availability of light is an important element for kitchens. Task lights in particular are a top priority because they ensure hygienic and safe food preparation. Task lighting simply means clear light from a direct overhead source. Aside from this type of lights, it may also be a good idea to add decorative lights to help promote the deal ambiance during meals.


In some cases, providing the right set of lights is the best idea for highlighting your kitchen space and attaining the kind of ambiance that just draws you in and makes you want to spend all day cooking! 🙂 The right light fixtures can make your kitchen look fresh and elegant without having to spend a lot of money on it! 😉

Aside from light fixtures, you might also want to consider improving natural light sources. You can improve the appearance of your kitchen during daytime by allowing the sun in from a window or through a new skylight.



An Example of a Fitted Kitchen

There are hardly any restrictions when it comes to kitchen design. There are no right or wrong answers when it comes to choosing a design. You can have one that matches your overall home theme or you can have one that contrasts with other sections in your home. Either way, your preference still rules. A good recommendation though is to opt for colors that are light, relaxing and inviting. Dark hues can be suitable too but only if you are interested in creating an elegant or rebellious impression.
