Kitchen paint does not always have to be white. Bold is beautiful, and if you are ready to make a change in your house, then think about choosing a kitchen paint color that is a little different. Change can be scary, but you may be pleasantly surprised with the outcome. Color is so powerful that it can affect mood, convey emotion and invoke physiological reactions.
The bar area of a restaurant is where people go to socialize with others and relax. There is no reason you can not create the same environment in your home kitchen.

Trends and personal preferences have the tendency to throw us off our game and influence us to make decisions based off of what is hot at the present moment. It is highly recommended you design with the future in mind. Oftentimes, homeowners forget to keep in mind that designing a new kitchen is an upgrade. It is an investment and necessary to keep up with the times so that you can sell your house one day, and hopefully, make some or all of your money back.
Layouts are usually dictated by the space available, but islands continue to dominate with many larger kitchens now opting for two islands. Most will have breakfast bar seating or banqueting seating attached to the island so that dining is incorporated into the kitchen area. An island or breakfast bar can also work as both a storage area and a place for dining. But less often they are used for actual food preparation. Utilise your island further by installing an appliance, the addition of a small sink or hob in your island will mean everyone can get involved with food prep.
