Design Inspiration, In The Kitchen

The identity of the kitchen

Kitchen design identity

Over the last twenty years, the identity of the kitchen has changed from the small room at the back of the house, whose function is simply to prepare food.

Over the last twenty years, the identity of the kitchen has changed from the small room at the back of the house, whose function is simply to prepare food.

It is now the centre of social life for the family, a gathering space for guests and a communal area for sharing life and ideas.

And in order for the cook to participate, during the meal preparation at least, designers have created an Island in the centre of the room.

Not only can the guests see what is happening on the food front, but there are no hindrances to the Cook taking a social part in the gathering.

It’s really like the wheel-house of an Ocean Liner, where everything is under the control of the Captain. Centre stage means centre of attention!
