Although the theme of your kitchen may get a little difficult you'll find it hard to believe that the way you design your kitchen will be a more vital decision. It would be a good idea to remember back to kitchens you have used in the past and determine the things you liked best about the room. Then consider all the individuals who will be using your kitchen and how much traffic you will have in and out of your kitchen.
So, get the neighbors sorted out by telling them that there will be some noise and contractors in and out, get your pets sorted as well - best to put them in a kennel for a while, and let's start decorating.
Once you have your serenity room, you'll need to establish rituals for its use. This shouldn't be another 'should' in your life, but a soothing habit, kind of like settling into the easy chair after work with your slippers, the newspaper, and a glass of Gewurtztraminer. In other words, another ritual that reinforces the way you escape from the demands of your day, only a bit different, and a bit novel. Be the first in your neighborhood.
