There are plenty of small kitchen layouts that often employ the corner sink in order to create a space that appears visually larger. Corner kitchen sinks ensure that the countertops are not broken and hence this not juts creates a more flowing space, but also provides for a longer work station without any breaks. Since the corner space in most compact kitchens cannot be wasted (unlike in the case of the more lavish designs) a compact sink in this forgotten nook serves just right!
Design flexibility and an innovative plan is what a corner sink brings to the kitchen. By placing the sink in the corner, there is ample space available in the remainder of the space for the addition of storage units. At times though, the placement of the dishwasher can be a real hassle as one sitting next to the corner sink with its door open might make the movement through the kitchen a tad bit inconvenient. There are those home owners who also feel that cleaning up is far more difficult after the installation of a corner sink due to the limited reach.
This galley kitchen design is efficient for those who are short on space. With several storage options that did not leave out the cooker and the refrigerator, the homeowner can make the most of the wall space available in the kitchen. Even the dishwasher was concealed behind a cabinetry like the cooker and refrigerator. With the cabinets light-colored, open-shelving system maintained and the installation of a moderately large pass-through window, it is actually a beautiful and functional galley kitchen
A nook is a cozy space designed to provide an intimate meal space for just two or four people. Generally a breakfast nook is tucked away in the corner of a kitchen or within a bay window. If possible, start by adding a padded window seat. This provides you with a great opportunity to show some personality and add some color to your space with an interesting fabric pattern and a few charming pillows.
Using pendant lights is all about getting the right balance between the various elements that one uses and the texture of different surfaces in the kitchen. A kitchen employs wide variety of surfaces, shelf designs and metallic tinges. This is something unique and exclusive to this part of the home. The right pendant lights are those that simply blend into the existing setting.
While from a ‘style’ standpoint, the corner sink can add a breath of freshness to the kitchen, it also can take away a bit of convenience as most often there is limited ‘elbow room’ while working with one. If you are getting extra help from your family members, then the corner can become all the more crowded.
For those who follow interior design closely, the ‘Rule of Threes’ is something pretty familiar and basic. In case you haven’t heard of it yet, it simply states that any design element needs to be repeated three times to pull off both visual impact and balance. Most people do tend to us the rule of threes pretty blindly when it comes to pendant lights over a kitchen island. But there is more to the number of pendant lights that one must utilize than this.
Pendant lighting is an interesting and fun way to add a bit of color in the kitchen. Since most contemporary kitchens prefer a minimalistic and highly ergonomic design, they can at times appear too sterile. A dash of vivid color in the form of exceptional pendant lights that sport an inimitable design can break the monotony. They also offer some flowing curves in a kitchen that otherwise sports only ‘clean and well defined’ lines.
We have always maintained that lighting is pretty much what makes or breaks the look of any interior space. With most home owners opting to place the corner sink by the kitchen window, there generally is ample natural ventilation. This is both a smart and practical choice as you not only have a lovely view to enjoy and abundant fresh air to take in, but natural light is still the best source to get work done under. But a pendant light installation above the corner sink more or less becomes a must as you still need focused light in the area after sunset.
