Opting for an open kitchen will really change the look and ambience of your home. It’s fresh, stylish, and very modern. Not to mention, it creates the illusion of space which might work well for you if your home is small.

Single-wall open kitchen

A single-wall may contain overhead and floor cabinets, your stove, and other appliance. Keeping all these in one side is perfect for an open kitchen since it gives an expansive view of your kitchen area. It makes room for easy movement around and gives your kitchen a neater and more organised look.

Open kitchen with an island

A center island, whether single or double, provides additional space for your kitchen without making it appear cramped. The island can serve as additional storage space, food preparation table, a buffet counter, and eating space for casual meals.

Additional dining area

Since it is an open kitchen, your dining area can be connected to it. This makes serving food easier and more convenient. Additional tables can also be added to the area during big parties given the open space.

Separate working spaces

To make your kitchen space organised and hygienic, separate your wet and dry areas. You can simply extend your tabletops to your living room or dining area to create a dry kitchen area. This can also double as a serving counter or additional dining space.
