Imagine yourself dived in some dark little corner of the kitchen, at the work table besides the oven, chopping vegetables all day, cooking for hours, turning your back to your guests or family, and missing all of you favorite TV show because you can’t just leave the cooking like that!

Think twice before you design your kitchen – wouldn’t you prefer instead a wide work table in the middle of the kitchen, where you can perform your own cooking show?! Everything is bright, you have a lot of space for cooking, and you can communicate with other people at home while doing it!

If your kitchen is open towards the living room, you can even watch some television! You will combine the elements and kitchen appliances so that if you need anything – you will reach it just by turning back to the other side!
Another good thing about this central kitchen element is that you can put cabinets from both sides – it could be wide enough so that both sides would be deep enough to put a dish, pot etc. You can use the roof top for putting an aspirator, suitable lightning, or just hang some of the kitchen appliances so you would have them at the reach of your hands. Get ready for a real cooking performance!
