Consider an open-plan layout if you plan on a kitchen renovation or building a new home. These have all the amenities of traditional kitchens and the benefits of a modern and efficient space.
The benefits are varied – but some important ones are:
- Less space for clutter
An open-plan kitchen allows you to use as much space as possible and maximize your storage possibilities. This space also creates more room for entertaining, which is why many people like to have an open-plan kitchen in the first place.
- The kitchen is more social
Kitchens are a social hub; they’re the area where family and friends meet and chat, cook and get together.
Open-plan kitchens mean that the whole cooking process can be done in the same place, so you don’t need to leave the kitchen to do something different, such as watch TV or do paperwork.
- Better flow of space
An open-plan kitchen has a more natural flow to it. You can cater to all the cooking needs in one area, with the dining and living areas nearby.
Moving about the space is easy, especially for people with limited mobility or who have small children.
- More attractive, modern feel
For many people, the most significant benefit is the kitchen’s look. Open-plan layouts are always more modern – even if you aren’t going for a contemporary style – just look more attractive. They’re also great for creating an attention-grabbing focal point in any room.
Events like parties can be catered for easily in an open-plan kitchen; you don’t have to worry about table placement or being too cramped into small spaces.
These are only a few benefits of an open-plan kitchen layout. There are many more, and they’re all equally appealing. Don’t be afraid to utilize what you have and create a comfortable and practical space.
