Flowing architecture is on trend right now. Spaces for living, cooking and indulging all merge into one here. The open-plan kitchen is a treat for anyone who enjoys being sociable while preparing delicious food. Beautiful materials, quality kitchen products and sophisticated design all create a harmonious connection with the dining area and living space, and really enhance the home.
The kitchen is becoming the hub of the home, and is opening up in the process. In keeping with the trend towards home-cooked food, it’s no longer a closed-off galley; instead it’s an inviting place for the whole family and its guests. The kitchen is changing accordingly, and becoming an open-plan area where you can enjoy visual contact, and continue conversations, with friends and the people you live with. Fancy cooking while watching the TV show playing near the sofa? Perhaps you also dream about how convenient it would be if there were only a few steps between the kitchen, dining area and your comfy seating?
The open-plan kitchen blends in harmoniously with the living area, as coordinated materials visually link the two. Using wood and natural materials throughout – including on the kitchen cabinets, worktops, flooring and living area – is currently on trend. Laminate and trendy tiles with a wood effect also create a visual bridge. In many cases, choice details such as rugs provide smooth transitions. A consistent colour scheme and seductive lighting add to the creative harmony. Designer lamps with a cosy feel throughout the dining area or breakfast bar also cause the areas to visually blend in together. Comfy seating can complement the counter, where guests and the people you live with congregate. In this appealing ambience in the cooking and living areas, the prominent and invaluable tap at the sink really grabs attention and adds an individual design accent.
“For many people, cooking is a passion that they would love to share with others. So this offers a solution whereby the kitchen's working area is merged with hospitality and living areas.”Christian Wadsack, Dipl.-Ing. interior designer BDIA
