Kitchen Islands That Wrap A Seating Area If you have a big kitchen island, if it is built up of several rectangles, you may place a seating or dining area right inside it, it will be a very cozy and comfy eating corner or breakfast corner. Of course, it works only if your kitchen is big enough and you have enough space for such a big kitchen island.
Backsplash Solutions Let‘s start with some backsplash action! We recently featured the kitchen below in our DIY backsplash post, but we just had to highlight it again.

Step-down or sunken living spaces have a long history that goes back to the late ‘50s. The style is making its way back to the modern interiors because of more practical purposes. This style of dropping the floor is necessary where raising the roof is not possible.

Heart of the Modern Home As we alluded to earlier, the modern kitchen is much more than a place to just cook and is increasingly becoming a part of the larger living space visual that blurs the line between each particular area. Add to this the balcony, deck or patio outside that extends this space outdoors, and it is barely a surprise that kitchens these days become the focal point of the stylish, trendy interior. Large sliding glass doors, bi-fold doors, sweeping windows and at times an open, pavilion-style design ensure that the distant coastline or the sparkling beach just outside is visually a part of the interior
