Open Kitchen Designs

The home kitchen has come a long way since the days of separate buildings to house the cooking area.  Kitchens are now more than ever becoming the heart of the home.  Walls are coming down and the open concept kitchen is a standard feature in many of today’s homes.

The open kitchen design features furniture-like cabinetry, clean profiles and sleek appliances.  Bars and islands are prominent and provide the divider between rooms.  Pull up a chair at the bar and keep the cook company while mingling with guests in the family room.

The open kitchen design allows room for a full-size table adjacent to the cooking area.  This not only makes serving easier but reduces the need for a dedicated dining room.

Many are finding that there is no longer a need to have the kitchen area divided from the rest of the rooms in the home.  This makes the kitchen a mainstream part of the home, allowing for convenience, especially for entertaining.

Open kitchens flow nicely as part of the home, no longer separated by walls.  To achieve a seamless design, flooring, lighting, cabinetry and surfaces blend with the adjacent areas.  The open kitchen has a more universal appeal to the overall plan of the home.

The kitchen is still the center of the home but it is now less divided.  Stylish and spacious, with plenty of space for keeping supplies hidden when not in use, the open kitchen has an effortless flow.  Open kitchen designs offer versatility for everyday living and entertaining.  No longer relegated to a separate building, the kitchen today is open, spacious and undeniably stylish.
