The kitchen has been on my mind since I discovered the word ‘kitchen’ in the late 1970s.
I had heard of it from my grandparents and then from my parents, but only as a child.
But as the years passed, the idea of the kitchen as a place where people could eat and cook in peace, and in the quietest and most intimate of settings, never seemed so far-fetched.
As I looked back on the past few decades, I realised that I was living in a fairytale.
Today, there are so many ideas and possibilities for the kitchen in the media that it’s hard to keep up.
As the world becomes more connected, so do the possibilities.
But it’s also easy to lose sight of the true nature of the home, the space that people have spent so much time and energy building.
This is what I want to explore, as I write this, with the help of my kitchen.
How does the kitchen work?
Kitchen design, from the kitchen table to the kitchen island, is about making the best use of space and resources.
And for many, the best way to do that is to get creative.
In this video, I talk to designers and technologists about what they think the future of kitchen design will look like.
The best way for you to make the best of your kitchen?
By understanding the concept of space, by understanding how you can maximise the space available, by using your kitchen space in ways that are sustainable and that don’t leave you feeling like you are taking the world for granted.
It’s a powerful idea that’s gaining momentum and becoming a common way of thinking about the future.
As a designer, I believe that design is about understanding how space works.
If you think about it, there’s no better way to understand how our home, our world and our relationships are made up of.
If we want to create a more harmonious, happy and healthy place, it’s about designing spaces that allow us to work and play together.
So, how do we do this?
We all have to learn how to use space to do what we do best.
I’m not going to give you a magic recipe, but I do know that the most important piece of advice you can give yourself is to be mindful of what you have.
If your kitchen is your bedroom, and your kitchen island is your kitchen, then you’re probably going to have a different perspective about what makes the best kitchen space.
For me, that means finding the space you love to work in, or the space in which you have the most time and opportunity to work.
So where does your space come from?
The key to creating a more sustainable and happy kitchen is knowing where your space comes from.
It can be the space of your family, your partner or your friend.
It could be a shared space in your local community, or in the house of a friend.
The key is to find space that’s not only yours, but that you’re excited to share with your family.
In many cases, it could even be in a small space such as the kitchen you share with the family.
I’d love to know your kitchen design inspiration and how it can be a good fit for you.

What’s the right place to put your kitchen in?
The question that comes to mind is ‘where should I put my kitchen?’
There are a number of factors to consider when choosing a kitchen.
What is the most appropriate place to start?
If you’re looking to build your kitchen for your family or friends, you may find that a shared kitchen is an ideal starting point.
If it’s a private kitchen, such as a shared bathroom or living room, it might be a great idea to start there.
You might think of shared kitchens as being similar to shared bathrooms or living rooms, but it might also be a different concept to where you have your kitchen.
Is there a space for everyone?
What about your guests?
The kitchen island concept is based on the idea that everyone’s kitchen is their own.
As people learn to share, they can create their own little islands and spaces in their homes that they can share.
This can be really exciting and empowering for people who have a lot of different needs.
In fact, it can feel liberating and empowering to have everyone share their kitchen with them.
Is your kitchen ready for a family reunion?
As the years pass, the kitchen can become more and more like a living room.
And this is when it really becomes important to make sure that you don’t lose sight.
Do you have a shared dining table?
Do you need a shared chair?
Do your kids have their own kitchen?
Do guests have a common dining area?
How can you create a space that lets everyone enjoy their own space?
There are many different possibilities, and they
