Benefits of open plan living
Updated: Oct 4
The kitchen is always the heart of every home but that doesn’t necessarily mean it is located in the right place within your home. It is recommended that the kitchen needs to be located within a part of the home that you the family can enjoy, be that natural daylight, the views or just simply the feeling of the space.
Over the last decades, people have constantly adapted their homes to suit the trends and lifestyle of that period, making current kitchens work in old and period homes. No space has changed more, in design and how we use it than the kitchen. The average family in the UK, spend around £10,000 to £20,000 modernising and renovating them, at this cost, it is a room that you can’t afford to get wrong.
An open plan kitchen arrangement focuses on providing families with the perception of an increased living by removing walls and bringing two spaces together into one functional space. One of the greatest features of the modern day kitchen is the island unit which has now become the central core for any modern kitchen. Such advantages of using an island unit include using it for functional kitchen food prepping and additional storage, creating a defined break between the kitchen and other space and providing a vantage point to enjoy both the space and view through the gazed openings.
There are many benefits of open plan living that can be greatly beneficial to your home. It can improve the overall appearance of kitchen, living space, increases the potential for natural daylight and supports communal living in bringing the family together.
