Rather than miles of counterspace, this kitchen has a freestanding custom‐designed china cabinet at the end of the L. Sometimes a square island is better than a rectangle. If you don't have the room for a main sink in one of the legs of the L, then put it in the island. This makes for a very tight work triangle and still allows for entertaining. This island has seating on two sides which makes for good conversation as well. If storage is what you're looking for, the L‐shaped kitchen can be the best option for the maximum amount of wall cabinets.
Ecofriendly Kitchen Counters. A little research is really all that's required today to make your new kitchen ecofriendly. The wide variety of material styles and costs – from salvaged wood to Bio‐Glass to bamboo (shown in this photo) – means you can find just the right green countertop material for your home.
Copper Kitchen Counters. It certainly isn't common, but a copper countertop is surprisingly easy to clean and maintain. However, it's not for perfectionists – since it's a "living" surface, it reacts to different substances, creating a blend of matte reds, browns and greens. But for those who love the look, the minimum $100‐per‐square‐foot cost is worth it.
