We used to think of the kitchen as simply the place where we do the cooking, but that conception has changed a lot in the past 100 years. The modern kitchen now serves us in many more ways because of the evolution of its design.
At the start of the last century, the kitchen was only a place where the meals were prepared, and so it was laid out to make time-consuming and tiring tasks more bearable. About a half century later, the open integrated design was developed, and modern appliances made the tasks of cooking and cleaning much easier. In addition, radio and television decreased the drudgery of kitchen work.
