Kitchens can be designed to cater for limited or expansive preparation areas. Client preference needs to be ascertained for correct design criteria to be achieved. Clients may prefer to entertain, thus requiring large preparation areas. Galley style kitchens can be well designed to cater for a smaller preparation area.

Nautical notation incorporated into these areas can be defined by the use of veneered, solid teak, beech or silver ash preglued sheeting, which is cut to form herringbone junctions on benchtops and doors produces excellent styling, and combinations of timber clad frames and granite bench tops (with the use of curved cabinets), add an entirely different influence, whilst combinations of blonde and brunette timbers can create exciting visual dimensions.

Timber J-mould trimming to exterior edges of cabinets, doors and drawers protects against chipping or breaking of the laminates or veneers. Breakfast bars and tables incorporated into kitchens are very functional as they can prevent the spread of foodstuffs into other areas, especially with a lot of residences employing open plan designs.
