The 2019 trend is open plan kitchens. Whether this is integrating your kitchen and dining area into one clean and airy space or opening your living room into your kitchen area too.
Create space which eliminates barriers
If you are short on space in your kitchen, or just like the idea of making your kitchen the large centre and gathering point of your home. You can opt for creating an open plan kitchen space. The open plan kitchen concept is a popular trend of 2019 and is the perfect solution for your storage needs. Opening up an area gives you the opportunity to design something out of the norm. Creating space for a kitchen island or even those dreamy curved designed workspaces.
The best way to make the open plan kitchen concept work is to add to the space, don’t keep all your kitchen cabinets flush to the wall. You have the room to bring them out and make the most of quirky storage ideas which are built to your requirements. There is nothing worse than not being able to store all your pots and pans out of sight, but with an open-plan space, this is no longer an issue.
Keeping your kitchen space clean and clutter-free will make your open plan kitchen work.
You don’t want to be sitting in your living space, relaxing in front of the fire and seeing clutter all over your worktops. This reason is why many opt for keeping these two spaces separate, but why would you? If you can stay on top of the mess. It is vital that you do not make the counter space your drop off spot as this just adds to the clutter, so include clever storage systems, shelving or racking spaces to ensure everything has its own home – out of sight, out of mind.
An open plan living and kitchen space can create a more functional home life. Instead of shutting yourself away in a kitchen, your whole family can experience meal times and meal prep together, whether they are directly involved or not, it is the perfect place for some family bonding. In addition, it is the optimum space for entertaining, who wants to try cram 12 people round a dining table fit for 8 on Christmas day? This will no longer be an issue with your extending living and kitchen space. This home improvement will certainly make you more social.
