Sleek Looking Eclectic Kitchens for Small Homes

Kitchen is a high traffic zone where all of us meet at least twice daily if not more frequently. To have an aesthetic looking kitchen can start our days in a better mood. Imagine how dreary and dull kitchen can dampen our spirits first thing in the morning and make our day not interesting! It is most important to have a delightful looking kitchen with sleek and elegant looks.

Small houses and studio apartments need to pay more attention when they furnish their kitchens. If they happen to have not an efficiently designed kitchen where the homemaker can spend time without feeling fatigued, they need to get a minimum makeover. They need to incorporate changes that will make the kitchen better planned, with more practical storage for added comfort.

Having a floor to ceiling size storage units can be a boon for home makers. Instead of having all the shelves of uniform height, they need to vary the heights of shelves to compactly fit the items without wasting vertical space. You can leave the top shelves at the top near the ceiling level with more height to store extra boxes and containers that are bigger in size. This is ideal for beautiful house designs.

You can make the wall shelves wider – wall to wall and not make the shelves too deep – not only do they take more space, having more than two deep rows can make it difficult to reach the items that are kept at the back. But under the kitchen counter, you can have deep drawers – to utilize the space fully beneath the counters where you can store large containers and pots/pans.

Today drainage boards and drying racks are coming that can be drawn across the sink and folded back when not in use. Likewise cutting boards can be drawn across the sink and folded inside when not in use. Shallow sliding panels with small ledges can be of use to house spice bottles and small tins that can be fitted to the kitchen cupboard doors or even on the hob splash backs – within easy reach when cooking.

Get some hooks fitted underneath the shelves for hanging up mugs and cups. Bar shelves for holding your stemware can also be accommodated under the shelves. Here are images of compact kitchens with sleek looking kitchen counters and sophisticated kitchen islands from Scavolini. Check at the optimal use of space and chic overall ambiance!

Bright And Best Looking Modern Kitchens

If you are going to buy a home or rent a home, what rooms are first checked as the most important rooms? Kitchen and bathrooms are the most importable attractions when you are buying or renting a home. Kitchen is where the families gather for meal times and this is truer now in small homes and apartments where kitchen and dining areas are adjacent to each other.

Big or small a good layout is the most essential basic need for the kitchen. Kitchen is a high traffic area where every family member will frequent and children stay here forever. This is where the friends and visitors come in for a cup of coffee or a bite to eat. When the layout is good and well planned, even a tiny kitchen can accommodate quite a lot of people coming and going.

The highest priority while layout of the kitchen is planned is that chef or whoever cooks in the kitchen gets the most comfortable area for cooking and attending to other all cooking related tasks. A island in the center or L shaped counter where one of the arms is reserved for preparation of meals and related tasks like cutting veggies, preparing joints etc is an excellent idea.

Having the utilities near by is another important thing. It can aid in keeping the kitchen clean and clutter free with quick and efficient disposal of garbage and used utensils into the dishwasher etc. Many kitchens have twin wash areas – which are again a great help to keep the kitchen spotlessly clean and pristine.

You can opt for a traditional vintage look – this will look pleasing especially if you have a large kitchen area and your home has a classic décor. Warm looking wood cabinets and floors can make the kitchen look homely yet impressive. You can actually have a dining table-chair set – especially if the room is large enough with enough elbow room etc.

Here you can see a number of images with various styles and layouts from Snaidero. The kitchens look spacious with very efficient lay out and well lit and look sleek and sophisticated. One is a galley type layout whereas most of the kitchens are variations of L shaped kitchens or U-shaped kitchens. All kitchens enjoy the additional comfort of roomy and comfortable islands which in many instances double up as dining area with high stools instead of dining chairs. Which kitchen is your choice?

Gorgeous Kitchen Islands for Smart Kitchens

Gorgeous kitchens are not only which look good but they must be efficient and work-smart kitchens too. When you incorporate looks with practical aspects to make cooking easy, they are work-smart kitchens. Trendy and cool looking gadgets and warm looking color themes are essential as well space-smart lay out and savvy kitchen designs.

What are all the gadgets you normally use in a kitchen? Cooking range – with a hob and chimney tops the range. Some ranges are all inclusive – with built in ovens, grill and open flame cooking hobs along with chimneys. Other built in appliances are dishwasher, refrigerator and microwave ovens. Appliances like kettle, toaster, and blender are normally not built in.

Sometimes kitchen cooking counter is used to host all the built in appliances and sometimes if you so like the kitchen island can be used to house some of the built in appliances. While refrigerator and microwave are still mostly housed along the wall supported cooking counters, the dishwasher, hob and chimney and a wash-work area with sinks are built in to the kitchen islands.

Here you can see images of smart and gorgeous kitchen islands from Elmar Cucine. There are a variety of designs for kitchen islands. Here you can see simple kitchen islands with open shelves underneath that look elegant. Sink is in one corner and the hob is at the other end of the chrome finish island with storage shelf beneath.

There are other models as you can find from these images like the island with return for dining at one end and sink for washing at the other end with another island holding the microwave and ovens. The countertops of some islands have overhang to facilitate pulling in the high bistro level stools and chairs for convenient dining.

The large metal island with crossed beam leg supports is quite spacious and really all conclusive with stove top hobs on one end, washing area at the other end and also with a dining area with revolving coaster based serving console. This complements the wall supported cooking and work area adequately and beautifully.

Both open and closed types of shelves are commonly built in to the kitchen islands. Some have closed cabinets underneath so that the entire island looks solid and covered on all sides with openings for cabinets and drawers on various sides. Also like seen here open shelves for holding pots and pans along with covered area for sink can be seen.
