What makes an open concept kitchen?


When you step into an open concept kitchen, you will not only notice the obvious (Being “open”) but you may notice a few other details. First the placement of the pantry is typically located in the kitchen, but off to the side not to be separated but also not the main focus in the kitchen.

In an open concept kitchen, you may also find quite a bit of cabinet space and high ceilings.

Most open concept kitchens is have a significant amount of counter space that helps the overall flow the rooms nearby. Take for example, having an island can serve as a transition piece that connects the kitchen with the dining room and the living room. This makes it much easier to facilitate conversation in your home.

Not only does an Open Kitchen encourage conversation, it also invites natural sunlight in the home that would not be possible otherwise.
