Kitchen can be divided into two types, namely the clean kitchen and dirty kitchen. The clean kitchen is becoming the trend in today’s society because it can increase the value of the entire interior. When the kitchen is good, it will make the entire home interior more attractive.
The clean kitchen can be placed near the family room or dining table because it is its function to be a place to serve foods. Meanwhile, the dirty kitchen serves as the place for the cooking process.
The kitchen shape is associated with the amount of the space available. Kitchen design could form a single line, double line, U shape, L-shape, or island shape. Whatever the type is, make sure the kitchen is able to accommodate the cooking utensils and of course can make you feel comfortable when cooking.
