Black and white are the two colors that define this futuristic Moscow apartment by Geometrix Design. The kitchen is no exception, featuring a minimalist all-white island complemented by six black chairs which allow it to double as a bar or dining table.
One of the biggest complaints about kitchen design is the lack of counter space. Considering all the kitchen activities that require a countertop, as well as appliances that are permanently located there, you want to fit as much open horizontal surface area in a kitchen as possible. This can be achieved by adding an island or breakfast bar to an L-shaped kitchen.
Full area seating: Your kitchen island doesn’t only need to be for short stays at the counter. Several kitchen islands are as big as dining room tables and can accommodate larger parties to sit. For these islands consider using full benches with or without backing to allow the seated person more comfort. Full size chairs can be used and chairs can match the adjacent dining room table to uniform the space.
Because built-ins are expensive and the overall size of the area may be limited, one big design mistake is not including enough storage. Almost every kitchen has wasted space, but this can be minimized with adequate planning and forethought.
