A kitchen's inflexible nature contributes to the problem. It's not a space in which you can just rearrange the furniture at whim. Lined with built-in and bolted-to-the-wall boxes, fixed-in-place surfaces and large, immovable machinery, a kitchen can look static and lifeless in almost no time at all.
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.
Breakfast bars or islands are a key component of most kitchens these days, so work with your designer to decide the best location for yours. You don’t want it to interrupt the flow of the room, and may want to integrate your sink or hob into the island to allow the chef to interact with people using the rest of the space.
Your open plan kitchen can be a very flexible space. For example, use folding sliding doors and you can have a contemporary open plan space that can be made smaller if required.
