The kitchen space design is such an important aspect in any home. This is where the family can get together to create the food that nourishes them. It’s where everyone eventually navigates to during a party. The kitchen is usually – if there is room – the place where family discussions take place, and even dinner parties. Your kitchen space design can and should be a place of light, warmth, and enjoyment.
So why do so many of us neglect this most used of rooms? Our living rooms and bedrooms look lovely, but the kitchen… Perhaps it could do with some love. These tips on how to make your kitchen space design look its best could be perfect for you.
Kitchen Space Design Layout

There are some basic rules when it comes to laying out a plan for your kitchen design so that it not only looks good but works well too. The ‘golden triangle’ must never be neglected, and once this is right, everything that follows is easy. Easy-ish, anyway. The golden triangle is the kitchen design space between the oven, the fridge, and the sink. These are the three most important items in the kitchen. The footprint between them should be as small as possible. As an extra tip, try to put the fridge as close to the entrance as possible – it’s where most people are heading to when they enter the kitchen. Once these three things are in place, you can think about where the cupboards, units, even a table (if you can fit one in) can go.
The Kitchen Countertops

The kitchen counter is perhaps the one opportunity within a kitchen design to really let your personality shine. And it’s the thing you can spend your budget on. Everything else can be much less expensive, but if you want to splurge, save your cash for the kitchen countertops. Whatever style you want, you can have. Your design can incorporate a natural stone, bright colors or a traditional grain… Companies such as K&D Countertops have plenty to offer and will be able to advise on the best choices for you and your budget.
The Ceiling Is How High?
If you have a high ceiling, then you are in luck – you can have the tallest kitchen cabinets available (around 48 inches). If you want a reasonable distance between the kitchen countertops and the cabinet above them, then you may have to go for a shorter type of kitchen cabinet. But the rule of thumb is to go for the biggest you can. You will appreciate it once you start putting your kitchen gadgets away.
Lighting In A Kitchen
Lighting In A Kitchen Space Design By All About Interiors
You don’t want a kitchen design that looks more like a Christmas tree than anything else, but you do need some lighting in there. Pick an area to act as the star (in a non-Christmas way); this should be where you spend the most time, so either around the stove or the island/table. The rest of the lighting in the kitchen needs to compliment that main event. When making your kitchen shine it is not the time to use boring light fittings. Choose something interesting and the kitchen will immediately be lifted.
