The kitchen has evolved a lot. While browsing the model book of the house I had just purchased from a re-book publisher – the design of a bungalow house in the 1940s – I was fascinated by some of the “sales points” offered by the author. For example, “treatment is done to adjust the upstairs bathroom above the kitchen so if there is an overflow, it will be in an unimportant room.” TELL ME WHAT! How time has changed. This gives us a perspective on what a kitchen once was. Today, if I have to “align” the bathroom leaked up and the “unimportant” space, it is my garage. This explains a few things; Like what they think of when building a wooden kitchen cabinet in place but the entrance is built in a doorstep by an expert carpenter.
And why you rarely see the cabinet from that era, it is just a paint class wood. You will see some nice bookshelves, in the living room – which is definitely an important room – but not in the kitchen. Since this is definitely an unacceptable view of what a kitchen is now, it’s worth considering where this design philosophy continues to this day and to do this I want to imagine a few things. Let’s imagine you are looking for a nice dining room. You go to a furniture store that sells fine lines, such as Drexel Heritage, or Ethan Allen. As you walk in the door, the first set of rooms has a row of closets, laminate tops and rows of wall cabinets. Wood is a natural maple and has a raised panel door.

You think to yourself, “strange that they will put their employee’s kitchen in front of the store”, but you continue. The next set is some high kitchen cupboard and set up / down with the top of granite and suddenly touch you; this is not your furniture turned and gone. I’ve just explained almost everything you’ll see at Home Depot, Lowe’s and most kitchen showrooms. This is not furniture. Then what makes “furniture”? This is the design. This is the proportion. There’s a reason why you can not get most of the furniture in whatever size you want, it’s because it’s designed, and if you change the dimensions, you change the design. In addition, there are some elements of “furniture” such as; beams, legs, mosquito nets, corbels and glass doors. This is very important and usually adds cost to your project, but in the hands of an unskilled designer they will only mock the look of furniture design.
If you need that proof, go back to Home Depot and see for yourself, is that furniture? No. Because kitchen design is becoming more sophisticated and because cabinet manufacturing does the same thing, it is increasingly unacceptable to fill the kitchen with building materials and more is expected the material will be designed and the end result will be the flavor of your kitchen. now an important space, and this is done by making it a “kitchen furniture” with a design.
