Choosing an open kitchen is a real bias. Very trendy to open the space, to gain brightness and conviviality, it is not made for everyone. If you think that what’s going on in the kitchen should stay there, or if you’re really sensitive to noise or cooking odors, go your way. For others, the open kitchen offers many benefits, provided you think of its layout.

Depending on the space available to you, you can choose which layout you prefer. For example, you can create an open kitchen with a bar around which to install pretty stools: it is a good compromise for small spaces to have a small dining area. But you can also choose to organize the kitchen around a central island, even more user-friendly when the volume of the room allows it. This option where preparation, meals and relaxation are as one allows the cooks not to lose a crumb of conversations in the living room and encourages the guests to get their hands dirty!

For all other appliances and utensils, always plan to store them, both in the bar and in the center island.

Who says open kitchen says room to live, where it is good to exchange and relax beyond the mere fact of meals. To be warm, in the continuity of the show, we do not hesitate to bring real decorative touches.
