Details for creating a cooking show atmosphere

The 'cooking show' trend is where your kitchen becomes the set for a TV show with the cook as lead actor.
The definition comes from those American TV programs where the presenter cooks before other people, capturing their attention.

The space is equipped with certain essential elements so that everyone will be comfortable.

Who is the protagonist?
At the center of the 'set' there is a bar/island capable of holding two distinct groups of people: the cook and the guests.
The space is equipped with certain essential elements so that everyone will be comfortable.
The preparation area includes everything that will help the job of the cook: cooking range, sink, a spacious counter top and many storage spaces to have all the accessories within easy reach.
The bar/island faces the living area from where the public can admire the cook at work.

You might choose a table for the dining area (as in the photo, left) or high stools positioned at the snack bar (photo above).
Set design
In this type of kitchen storage elements function as a link between the living area and the kitchen.

For an uninterrupted transition between these two areas you'll need to carefully select colors and materials.

An open space configuration is best for a 'cooking show' type kitchen.
This large open space, without barriers between the two areas, will require a powerful ventilation hood capable of efficiently absorbing all odors. In the photo to the left, the Star ventilation hood (by Elica) covered with small glass prisms adds a striking final touch for a sparkling theatrical result.
