Your kitchen is one of the busiest areas of your home. That???s why it???s important to ensure its laid out in an efficient, functional way. Highland Design + Build, your premier local home improvement company, recommends an open layout design for improved traffic flow and aesthetic appeal. Here are just some of the ideas we utilize when it comes to an open kitchen layout.
One of the best ways to create a more open feeling for your kitchen is by linking smaller rooms together. Fusing your kitchen and dining room is a popular home remodeling idea that can create extra dining space while also making the kitchen feel less cramped.
Highlight Special Features
The right kind of window or cabinet can make your kitchen feel more welcoming. Windows that provide plenty of natural light, such as picture or sliding windows, can provide your kitchen with a cheerful atmosphere. Similarly, open face cabinets or cabinets with glass panels stop your storage spaces from feeling overwhelming. Lastly, a grand archway will make your kitchen more open.
Coordinate Colors and Finishes
Changing colors and finishes can also make your kitchen feel more open. White and other light colors make your kitchen feel less confined. Uniting your woodwork and cabinet finishes with other interior elements also makes everything feel more connected. Unified detailing has the same effect. Even if your kitchen is highly traditional, it will still feel as sleek and integrated as a modern kitchen if its details are imitated through the rest of the home.
