Functional Kitchens Part 1
Function is everything in a kitchen. Doesn't matter how big or small it is if it is not functional for you. Beyond trends and resale, thoughtfulness and functionality. Recently, ( a few months ago, but time flies) I was reading about greening your home and working with smaller spaces. Smaller spaces are more energy efficient and usually are closer to cities which are more accessible don't use a car as often etc. Smaller spaces entail smaller kitchens. I saw this one kitchen where the space where the sink was dueled as a kitchen bar area with stools. They had a leaf that went over the whole sink and actually a collapse able faucet. It was so clever!
From that idea we were thinking we could make leafs over our integral concrete sinks, but haven't had a demand for that, but what we adapted the idea to was to create knock outs in the sinks for drain boards and cutting boards that are right on the sink and can slide back and forth for ultimate functionality.
We have some great new functional ideas that are being created as we speak so I will save the blog for the pictures. But I just wanted to show you this great looking kitchen we just finished.
