Ideas for kitchens open to the living room that you will want to have
The open-space concept is once again at the forefront of interior design trends. After the complex sanitary situation that has been experienced all over the world, open and wide spaces have become a treasure that everybody wants to have.
In this regard, kitchens that are open to the living room are gaining strength. Far are the thoughts that this type of room is not practical or can cause bad smells. Gaining space is the main premise so, if you are one of those who do not mind tearing down walls, we leave you with some ideas for kitchens without partitions that you will surely fall in love with.
1. Kitchens parallel to the living room
When you think of a kitchen open to the living room, the first thing you imagine is these two rooms facing each other. However, there are designs that go much further, especially for those large spaces. If your surface is defined by its width, take advantage of it and design it in parallel. In other words, the kitchen should open laterally to the living room (top image).
When choosing this style, bear in mind that the kitchen should always have an island, since you will need a bench to handle the food or a kitchen and sink area.
2. A two-level open kitchen
If you want to subtly and attractively divide the kitchen from the living room, use steps. The double height will allow you to differentiate both areas without having to separate them. Always place the kitchen on top so that, while you are preparing lunch or dinner, you can enjoy the social gathering in the living room.
3. Open kitchen with bar
The L-shaped bar is a design element that will allow you to fully merge the kitchen with the living room. In addition, this extension is a very practical space for quick meals and breakfasts.
4. Same style and line
Furniture and decorative accessories are the elements that will help you achieve total continuity between the living room and the kitchen. Choose the same colors, textures, and lines. Of course, the flooring should not change. All our ceramic collections are suitable for both spaces so choose the one that best suits you.
5. All in one
The idea of open-space can be applied to the whole house. It is not only a question of joining the kitchen with the living room, but also of merging it with other rooms in the house, such as the hall or the terrace. A windowpane will be enough to escape from the outside without visually breaking the uniformity and continuity.
