The kitchen is one of the most important rooms in the home, and the one we spend a significant amount of time in, particularly if you have a family to cook for. A “dream kitchen” complete with shiny new appliances, plenty of workspace and a welcoming atmosphere is something many of us want.
Are you looking to update the design of your kitchen this year? Need some inspiration? Dwell magazine, which focuses on modern home design, has compiled a list of tips and predictions from designers in an article titled 101 Kitchen Design.
As the author notes in the article’s introduction, “This is when we might heed German graphic design visionary Otl Aicher, author of The Kitchen Is for Cooking, who wrote: ‘The kitchen is a function of man’s social nature. Cooking is only a pleasure when others join in eating. And cooking is even more of a pleasure if others join in the cooking.’ And all the design genius in the world is not going to get that fresh fish into the frying pan, or those well-scrubbed potatoes into the oven.”
