It's no surprise that stone was a feature at the international kitchen design shows this year. What was noticeable was the emergence of coloured marbles and other stones such breccia and graphite. But stone can be expensive and cool to touch as well as heavy and difficult to work with.

U SHAPED KITCHEN
A U shaped kitchen design usually has one entrance and all counter space and appliances are built into a U shape. The kitchen triangle concept is definitely recommended as to create good flow between appliances. U-shape kitchens are often designed with a view through a wall or opening between rooms. This effect is great for small spaces such as flats or apartments as it will open up your kitchen to the rest of your home. If you are planning a U-shaped kitchen design where an opening exists in a wall, and be aware not to sacrifice cupboard space and electrical outlets when taking that wall out. If you are unsure whether the wall is a load bearing wall, refer to your building plans or better yet seek professional advice.
