The majority of new construction homes are designed with an open layout concept for the kitchen and living space. However, we receive many requests from our clients with older homes to open up and enlarge their kitchen. Opening up the space between the kitchen and living room is often as simple as knocking down the wall between the two. This alone can make a tremendous difference.
Designing the Open Concept Kitchen
For decades the kitchen was strictly considered a workspace. A functional place often tucked away in the back of the house. But fast forward to modern times, kitchens today are viewed very differently. Now, the open concept is the heart of the home. People want their kitchen to be an active part of the house, and they have become by far the most preferred choice today.
When it comes to designing an open concept kitchen, it’s essential to understand what defines them, what their main characteristics are, and what variations exist.
Most often, the kitchen area is opened up and linked to some living or dining area. A large island or peninsula is usually a must. It provides more counter space for prepping food and entertaining guests. Lighting pendants are a perfect way to illuminate the counter space. The dining area should have its own lighting and can become a separate space by placing an area rug under the dining room table.
An additional consideration when designing an open concept kitchen is storage. Since there is no wall separating the other rooms of the house, it may seem that storage space is being sacrificed. However, there are many solutions to this potential problem. Full-height pantries can be added for extra storage. And the addition of an island or peninsula is a great storage provider.
