A good tip about the size and layout of an open plan kitchen is to go to a kitchen designer early on in your planning stages. Visit a range of kitchen suppliers and talk to their designers. Your architect will give you a strategic design and the kitchen designer should add another layer to the plan, providing specific product lead information like the types of drawers, fixtures and finishes you can have.
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.
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.
You’ll also need to finalise your budget at this stage to make sure you’re not looking at options out of your price range. Remember that just because you can’t afford high-end design choices like marble work surfaces, it doesn’t mean you can’t get the look with a cheaper alternative, such as a quality laminate. The huge range of kitchens on the market means, if you are willing to shop around, you can get a kitchen you love at a price you can afford.
