Open Plan Kitchen Extension
Today's homes are constructed to a greater insulating level than previous designs. Double glazing, door draft prevention, and the use of oil or gas heating all contribute to a well-insulated and draft-free home. The days of having a separate dining room and kitchen are long gone.
Today, the entire family pitches in to cook and spills into the adjacent area to dine. The open plan kitchen style is gaining popularity, allowing for greater space and a sense of togetherness for the whole family. It also means that an open plan kitchen extension is a way to create this space from scratch.
If the walls of your kitchen don't get in the way, you may reap the same sense of openness. While it necessitates planning, building the extension and removing a wall or two, opening up your kitchen to an eating area and even the family room isn't as difficult as it appears if a kitchen makeover is already on your schedule.
Removing walls might necessitate giving up some of the existing high-level cupboard space in your kitchen. To make up for the lost storage, add an island or peninsula with deep drawers and shelves. An appliance cabinet can assist reduce worktop clutter.
Open floor plans also expose unclean dishes and cooking utensils for family and visitors to see. However, without completely cutting it off, there are methods to partially screen the kitchen from view without hiding it entirely. A tall backsplash on a peninsula or island that may also accommodate a breakfast bar is an established method for food preparation or to hide those dirty dishes!
