The capacity to combine two of the most social rooms in the house, the great versatility and optimisation of the space have meant that open kitchens have become the new masters of interior design.
Following the global health crisis, housing needs have shifted towards spaces that are modular, habitable, brighter and that extend to the outdoors. Thus, the concept of open-space emerges strongly in the interior design sector with the aim of bringing the maximum optimisation and functionality to homes. It should be noted that this type of design avoids unnecessary partitions that can hinder the circulation of natural light and ventilation in all rooms.
Now that pulling down a few walls has become all the rage, PORCELANOSA Group presents a series of tips to for you to get inspired and involved in the trend of open kitchen-living rooms that are revolutionising the world of interior design.
Extending the living room to the kitchen is a good idea if you want to enhance your home. Opt for units without handles that are integrated into the kitchen design and colours that complement both rooms. Complete the space with several stools that act as a dividing line to allow you to separate the different ambiences.The Berna Caliza collection from HIGHKER combined with the ceramic wood Forest Cognac from Porcelanosa results in a minimalist and elegant kitchen-dining room that becomes a gathering place.
The most original, sophisticated and natural kitchens are based on the aesthetics of granite and quartzite to achieve integrated and 'precious' spaces. The Altissima collection from L'Antic Colonial plays with the temporality of natural stones to ensure an exclusive and incomparable kitchen thanks to the unique qualities of the materials used during their development. Kitchens that do not go out of fashion.
As well as being a perfect place for socialising while cooking, the bar also has its function at the design level. This small extension allows the creation of an L-shaped kitchen open to the living room that delimits both spaces with a practical bar for breakfasts and quick meals.
Yes to glass partitions for the most cutting-edge open kitchens. The doors and walls transformed into large glass panes will ensure your kitchen is perfectly lit and connected, while still allowing for the possibility of creating a more private space. Sliding glass partitions, with door panels or large transparent doors, in kitchens are a decorative element that will give a unique touch to the home.
Steps: a very subtle constructive detail that distinguishes the spaces and delimits the different environments. Positioning the kitchen on top of a small platform is one of the increasingly popular practices being used to create a large social area.
