There’s a growing trend for ‘broken-plan’ living, where the spaces are only partly separated –you may want to include a half wall between the kitchen and living space, or a pocket sliding door that allows you to divide off the dining room for more formal entertaining.
Another advantage of an open plan kitchen is that it provides large spaces for entertaining. If you are preparing food you can still be included in the social activities. Friends can be sitting comfortably having a coffee while you are preparing nibbles and yet still part of the conversation.
Note that your open plan kitchen doesn’t have to be a square box tucked away at the end of the building. Instead, use the building to create all kinds of spaces. Embracing odd shapes and L-shapes for example, can result in the successful separation of spaces for different types of activities in your open plan kitchen. These shapes help to create zones for different activities and also give visual variety.
Some kitchen companies offer a complete design, build and installation package, meaning you won’t need to find individual tradespeople, although this is often more expensive. If you choose this option, again always get quotes from at least three different kitchen companies. Even if you’ve fallen in love with a kitchen offered by one specific company, chances are others will offer something very similar.
