Gone are the days where the kitchen is a place for simply cooking and preparing meals! In recent years, there’s been a marked rise in the popularity of open-plan living, corresponding to our more informal lifestyles.
This move towards free-flowing, multi-functional spaces has meant that the kitchen is no longer cut off from the social areas of the home, but instead has become the hub where everyone comes together. A large, open-plan space in the home encourages socialising with family and friends, even when undertaking different activities. Whether you’re relaxing on the sofa, preparing dinner or doing homework, having everyone being able to enjoy the same space creates a sense of unity and comfort that’s so important nowadays for a family home.
