The kitchen lighting fixtures over the breakfast table in our kitchen, we found to be an essential part of our kitchen planning, as different types of lighting fixtures for this amazingly useful space were required. We took more time on this part of the room and chose carefully, although it was a little tempting to simply add these later, this has now become such a special place for us. The kitchen lighting fixtures that we installed provide a nice warm glow that fans out evenly, across our table space, yet synchronizes perfectly with the rest of our beautiful kitchen.
Put an upper counter 8\" above your countertops (i.e. 6\" wall, 2\" thick upper counter). In an \"open floor plan\" concept, this 8\" of height hides a \"messy\" kitchen counter from view to the other rooms. It also gives you plenty of room for multiple electric outlets in the in the 6\" wall areas. The 6\" tall wall is the right height for 6\" ceramic wall tile. The upper counter is 44\" (elbow height) a perfect height for \"leaning\". This allows your guests to \"lean\" on the counter (out of the kitchen) and talk with you while you're preparing food (in the kitchen). It's also a good height for serving food or for tall stools as a breakfast bar. Not all of the upper counters have to be the some width. Some sections may be 9\" wide (just a top to the kitchen partition, while other sections of the upper counter can be 24'' wide, for serving food or as a breakfast bar.
In the days before electricity changed everything in our lives, family kitchens in modestly sized homes were large but simply appointed rooms. They contained a solid fuel heat source for cooking (a fireplace or a coal or wood stove) and a built-in sink, with or without running water. Everything else was a piece of furniture. The icebox was elegantly made of wood, as were the central dining/work table, cupboards, pie safes and pantries. The family kitchen was the central work/social place of the home too where family members, sometimes in the company of friends performed most domestic chores and socialized with each other.
