'It is so important to not only consider the necessities of a room plan and its requirements, but to make sure that each project is also making the most of its situation & the architecture of the property. This should include utilizing natural light to its best effect. By creating the movement of light through the introduction of polished surfaces, such as mirrors & glass etc, the room will feel larger and brighter. Texture is also important as this creates depth, contrast and scale which can be enhanced further by carefully placed artificial lighting.
With the increased popularity of 'living kitchens', it has become much more important to plan well for lighting to include 'working' lights as well as occassional lighting, which create areas of intimacy & drama within the different zones of the room, and even outside. Not only will you benefit in the room itself, but by the aspect of approaching from another room, or from outside and further enhance your space.
I also think it is important to personalize your room, this will give it an individuality and as the ' living ' kitchen is nolonger just a working space, gives clients a chance to choose items for fun and not just function."
