As an Architect, I try to utilize the best means of design to make a house more efficient and well utilized for the square footage. In this article, I'm dealing with kitchen design, and how to make it more efficient in use and storage, make it feel more open than a standard kitchen, but do it in a smaller size (square footage costs money).
Keep your ceilings tall by putting in scissors trusses. You can make your walls 8 foot tall, but by adding the scissors truss (peak at 13 to 14 feet) will give you lots of visual space and a less confined feeling. And get a skylight in the kitchen. The opening for a skylight can be much bigger than the skylight itself. Get the opening from the peak of the ceiling to the edge of the wall, and locate the skylight near a perpendicular wall so it will disperse the light throughout the kitchen. Put some \"niches\" in your tall walls above the 8' line for greenery, or statues. Put \"puck\" lights in these niches for accent lighting.
The kitchen lighting fixtures over the breakfast table in our kitchen, we found to be an essential part of our kitchen planning, as different types of lighting fixtures for this amazingly useful space were required. We took more time on this part of the room and chose carefully, although it was a little tempting to simply add these later, this has now become such a special place for us. The kitchen lighting fixtures that we installed provide a nice warm glow that fans out evenly, across our table space, yet synchronizes perfectly with the rest of our beautiful kitchen.
Keeping people out of the kitchen is very easy to do in your design, just make it difficult for them to get in. Use a wrapping countertop with just one (1) countertop opening into the kitchen, and locate that opening in the most difficult spot to enter the kitchen. This, along with the \"open floor plan\" is the most effective way to prevent unwanted kitchen traffic. The single kitchen entrance will psychologically keep them out of the kitchen zone, while the open floor plan (no walls) allows you to communicate with family and guests, while keeping them out of the kitchen.
