You’ll also need to consider your glazing choices carefully, as this can make or break a design – do you want bi-fold or sliding doors? Would rooflights help bring natural light into the depths of the room? Now is the time to make these major decisions.
Also consider having clearly defined circulation routes. Clear pedestrian routes allow people to easily flow through the space without having to go round key objects like the dining table. One simple way to achieve this is to see all the way through the open plan kitchen and into the garden — this helps to pull people through the space.
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.
Cabinets are an obviously important feature of a kitchen, but closed off cupboards aren't your only option. You can add a casual, modern feel to your kitchen by replacing your old cabinets with custom shelving. Open shelves not only make it easy to grab cups or plates, but the lack of doors add an open-air vibe to your kitchen as well.
