3 Tips And 34 Examples To Unite The Kitchen And The Living Room Right

United Kitchen And Living Room Designs Cover

Today open-plan interiors are super trendy because they enlarge your space and create a whole zone for communicating and having fun. If you aren’t ready for a whole loft-like space, you can try just to unite the kitchen and the living room. Here are some tips to do that right.

  1. Define the size of each zone: if you often invite family and friends for a dinner, make the kitchen area larger.
  2. Binding elements. Think of a single color scheme for both zones as the transition between the areas should be smooth and gentle. The décor style should also be single for both, so choose the furniture accordingly.
  3. Functionality. All the kitchen surfaces should be functional for cooking, and the hood should be very well working to avoid food smells in the living room zone. Multi-level kitchen lights will be very useful and you won’t light the living area too much.
