So what would you choose when you have to go for a kitchen design.  Should it be smart, should it be usable with more and more space to hide the dishes and half filled cookie jars or should it be beautiful with a metallic modern finish with the pieces of art that you would love to show off to the world.  Don't say all of the them as that is not an option :)  Or at least I can't think of that design right now.

Now there are kitchen design principals that mostly talks about how every thing should be closely accessible to the person who is cooking the meal but if there are more than one person preparing the meal as is the case in India's joint families then we start to look beyond that principal.  

In this post I don't want to go into the kitchen design principals but rather I want to find out what do you guys think when you get to design a kitchen and I want to start a series where you guys post your comments on the kitchen pictures posted in this website to tell all of us what do you like about each design. 

I would start by posting my comments about this kitchen  design below.  I like this for the following reasons.

Kitchen Design

1) It has tonnes of space under the cooking range and in the life size frosted glass cabinets
2) It has a great island concept that gives us plenty of room for multiple persons in the kitchen having their own small work area.
3) A glass shelf to put decorative glasses, probably can be used as a mini bar too if you like
4) Taking about the color selection, the white cabinets do not grab attention and leave the focus back on the center piece.
5) A stark black dining table and chair combo is built right next to the cooking area that looks pleasing. Again a dining table in the kitchen was never a part of the golden triangle rule that was the kitchen designer's favourite for a long time but again this fixture has proved time and again as to how usable this idea is. Though a lot of homes in India have not yet caught up to this design probably because of the space or design limitations but I would think this one would make way to Indian homes too pretty soon. 

1) It does not have a good implementation of the kitchen triangle and would increase milage as not all items are quickly accessible. The island design kind of blocks the movement.
2) No provision of good lighting. Artificial lights are good to an extent but nothing beats the natural lights but probably the guy who designed this kitchen didn't have that luxery.

There are probably a lot more that you guys can think of, feel free to add yours. Let me know what you like and what you don't.

I’d like to make a suggestion and eliaxpn why I think that it is worthwhile:I suggest that you bring about the creation of a downloadable .ISO image of a Live CD or perhaps a Live DVD that contains all of the software necessary to develop software for the last released version of IT OS 2006 for the 770. Why? There are several reasons. The core OS which you could use now to create the disc image will change in time and might be difficult for a future potential developer to locate. There might be issues using the last IT OS 2006 development tools with future versions of the desktop OS. Also, as the focus moves on to newer versions of the IT OS, it may be more difficult to sort out which version of what is the right one to use when building for the 770.I believe that you may even be able to drastically reduce the cost to Nokia of developing the Live CD/DVD by having someone at Nokia just act as a project supervisor instead of having them tasked with the single-handed creation of the disc. They could write a specification that would describe what is to be on the Live CD/DVD and how it should be organized.Make use of the many people who freely give their time and talents within the open source community. You could post a message on your blog seeking volunteers, or perhaps look through the list of developers who would be pre-qualified by having earned discount codes when the 770 was released and ask them to volunteer their time to create a Live CD (or Live DVD) disc that would be “frozen in time.” It would enable anyone now or in the future, to boot up with it and use it to develop software for the Nokia 770 Internet Tablet OS 2006 (final build) without needing anything else. The Nokia staff member serving as project manager would guide group to create the Live CD/DVD. Once completed, Nokia could release an .ISO disc image that would be made available to various hosting sites.It would be nice if the Live CD/DVD also had an installer so that the user would have the option of installing the whole system on a PC if they wanted to do so. Then it could be used either way, as a “Live” disc, or as an installation disc. Think of it as a development time capsule, neatly organized, and shielding the user from code and notes lost through the ravages of time. It would also make a very nice and positive thing to announce to the 770 community. IT OS 2006 forever!Best wishes,Jack Swindell

HGTV has all kinds of FREE information on how to asbemsle all different types of things!! Also, advice on where to buy the supplies you need at REASONABLE prices. I would suggest, going to amazon, msn shopping, or ebay for supplies just make sure they list the item as NEW or LIKE NEW!!! You should be fine!! As I frequent these sites have only had a couple of MINOR problems with them. However, when I did have an issue; the issue was solved quickly!!
