Kitchen Design Terminology

I was going to start a list on here for the sort of terms we use in kitchen design, and have this post as a resource for the terms and definitions. But I thought I'd have a look online first to see what's already out there. I come across this write up that seems to have most of the major ones put into layman's terms. I did notice there were a few missing off it but this was the most complete list I could find.

I do think articles like this are vitally important because it is so common for people not to actually understand these kitchen terms, and they'll often feel stupid for asking. So places like this save all that and help people truly understand what is being said by their kitchen designer.

When a customer understands their kitchen designer, you are that much closer to two things:

  1. A project that runs smoothly
  2. A happy customer

Both of which are things I think every kitchen designer worldwide desires.

So if you're looking for a quick resource of terms and phrases kitchen designers use, check out the page.

The current trends in kitchens

I was just looking through facebook when I saw a friend of mine had posted an article that showed some of the future trends in kitchen design. I wasn't over impressed at first as it all seemed to be the same old stuff we've seen year in. But if you look at it more as 'the current trends' in kitchen design, I think there's some really inspirational stuff here.

The article isn't very long, it's mainly a slideshow, so take a look at it and let me know which one your favorite is.

Leather Kitchen banner

This one just popped up on my feed today...

Leather kitchen cabinet doors.

'What?' I though. I reread it a couple of times and yes it turns out somebody actually wanted this - and it didn't turn out half bad either!

Now I know this website is suppose to be a place for inspirational kitchens, advice etc. But this one's a nice bit of fun and I thought I'd share it with you guys as I want to get your opinion.

Here's the site: http://www.kitchendesigns.com/leather-kitchen-cabinet-doors-furniture/

Now answer me this...

Would you like a leather kitchen?
