Today, the kitchen is the hub of the home. The advantage of having an open plan kitchen is it creates is a family friendly environment. With technology as it is, the kids can be entertaining themselves on an iPad and you can be doing something completely different. The family is no longer restricted to one room and one TV for entertainment.
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.
The fact is, a kitchen will stay livelier longer if you start with an expanded menu of materials that maximize visual interest and tactile stimulation from the beginning. It's not a particularly difficult strategy, but you have to approach the task with intention and resolve.
Light is the second key feature that can be used to make your kitchen appear much bigger. The more light and bright a room is the bigger we perceive it to be. A room full of shadows or dark corners appears smaller as the whole space is not illuminated. The walls or corners can appear shorter than they actually are. By allowing maximum natural light into a room with a big window you can make your kitchen appear far bigger. You ultimately want to do whatever you can to fill your kitchen with light. Any windows that you have should remain uncovered by curtains or blinds. If privacy is still required a net curtain or frosting could be of benefit.
