What To Do With A Large Kitchen
Everybody adores a spacious kitchen. There is ample room for informal dining as well as plenty of room for multiple cooks. However, a sizable kitchen might occasionally feel chilly and unwelcoming. No matter the size of your kitchen, you may have a cosy and warm one by following some simple rules.
When furnishing a large kitchen, start by taking the scale of your furnishings into account. An expansive table with roomy chairs is preferable to a compact café table. An excellent area to display your collectibles is the kitchen. Include a wine rack, lit glass hutch, bakers rack, or other storage or display items. For your cookbooks, pottery, display dishes, and even collections unrelated to kitchens and food, you'll need some kind of shelving or cabinet space.

Next, check to see if the kitchen has enough space for an island—either a compact, mobile butcher-block workstation or a permanent island with space for productivity, a second sink, and bar stool seating that is ideal for a quick breakfast or after-school snack.
The most important thing to remember is that the kitchen needs sufficient illumination, especially when preparing and cooking food. If your kitchen is big, invest in big light fixtures and install lots of recessed lighting, even under the cupboards.

Add silk or real potted plants, as well as ornamental items like urns, wall hangings, and architectural accents that go with your décor, to make the kitchen visually pleasant. Consider creating a gallery for the children's pictures and crayon drawings on one wall as well.
Some kitchens even contain fireplaces, which instantly makes the space feel cosy and welcoming, but this certainly isn’t a necessity.
