When kitchen designer Alex Saint of Kitchen Architecture approached the project of adding a modern kitchen to an 18th-century thatched-roof cottage in Cheshire, England, he did so with the property’s historic integrity in mind.
Keep that in mind when planning a remodel. If your kitchen is closed off or isolated now, building in seating or counter space for social interaction will dramatically change the way you and your loved ones interact at home.
Looks aren’t everything, but don’t write them off. A beautiful kitchen has very tangible benefits. A design you love will impact your daily lifestyle — after all, most people spend a large percentage of their time at home in the kitchen, even if they aren’t cooking! The image above is the perfect example of a kitchen remodel that also fosters an environment to gather round during food prep.
Instead of attempting to replicate the home’s century-old brickwork, the architect decided to build a glassed-in kitchen addition that would minimize structural changes and preserve the home’s character.
When done right, open shelving does double duty as both storage and decor in the kitchen. It makes locating and grabbing often used dishes and utensils a breeze. It creates a brand new look with things you already own.
