6. A hard-wearing floorIn a heavy traffic area such as a kitchen, the floor needs to earn its keep. There are many different surfaces you can go for, including natural stone, concrete, ceramic tiles and porcelain. You could also choose some beautiful timber, but take expert advice on how to seal it and protect it from water damage.Think about how your floor will look with the rest of your scheme, and whether you’ll want to change it in the future. A classic design like these stone tiles will work with most kitchen styles and colours. However, a patterned floor can look stunning and, if you really love the design, it could be worth being brave with your flooring choice.These kitchen floor tiles rule the roost
1. Consider shallow cabinetsHere are some out-the-box ideas: Not all of your lower cabinets must be the standard 24 inch depth. Most cabinet lines (even stock cabinets from big box stores) also come in a 12 or 15 inch depth usually used for upper cabinets.Using slimmer lower cabinets for one area has its advantages. It opens a bit more floor space, which can make a big difference in a tight kitchen. It also reduces your storage slightly, but often the backs of deep cabinets are hard to reach anyway, so the shallower cabinets can be just right for everyday items.
