Many clients prefer the open-concept kitchen, we are finding that we are designing more than just the kitchen space itself and the space is becoming more and more functional. Now, our kitchen design also encompasses spaces like a pantry, boot room, dining room, and shower rooms. This is in addition to the other living areas that connect to the open plan living areas.
We do not want to create a space that feels like one big extended kitchen, we like the spaces to flow openly into each other with different functions and successfully blend the areas together well. A kitchen’s connectivity directly impacts its design, and our clients want a kitchen to both look and function in the larger space.
A larger kitchen floor space can provide many benefits for homeowners. With more room to move around and work, cooking and meal prep can become more enjoyable and efficient. Additional counter space can make it easier to prepare ingredients and store appliances, while a larger island or peninsula can provide additional seating and storage. An open floor plan can also make it easier to entertain and socialize while cooking.
Additionally, a larger kitchen can also increase the overall value of a home. If you’re thinking about remodeling your kitchen, consider expanding the floor space to create a more functional and inviting space.
