Determining your own kitchen style is like choosing a new dress or a new car. It is a personal choice. As a homeowner/homemaker, it is best to choose a style that provides an ambiance for cooking and dining. Of what use is the kitchen‘s aesthetics if it does not go well with the kitchen‘s functionality or your family‘s comfort?
Just as fashion has changed over the years, so have kitchens. Designs for modern kitchens 50 years ago were different to what we see today, with the evolution of more technology. Many influences have come from Europe especially Italy, France and Germany. Some people really like to make a statement with their kitchens and go for very bright colours, or unique appliances and accessories. Others prefer a minimalist look and feel, while others still might like the classic or traditional looks.
There are many ways to go about designing your kitchen and you can choose something off the plan or an architects design. You may not really know exactly what you want but you do have an idea of the style you like and what your budget is. This is where you now need to do some planning and start to define your likes and dislikes. If your kitchen is an unusual shape, or particularly large or small, then there may be some unique design elements to consider.
You must have heard of modular kitchens. These were introduced almost a decade before, and brought a great relief to the women and the housemaids that used to spend a considerable time in the kitchen. Modular kitchens made the work place more hygienic, sleek and comfortable with good storage space and ease of working. With the passage of time, architecture and interiors have become more technology-oriented with artistic designing and sufficient use of space and gadgets. Electronic accessories are now placed in such a way that the worktops and shelves get more attractive by the use of glossy and designer material.
