The kitchen is always the absolute heart of every home but that doesn’t mean it is located in the right place within your home. The kitchen needs to be located within a part of the home that you enjoy, be that natural daylight, the views or just simply the feeling of the space.

Over the last century, people have constantly adapted their homes to suit the period trends and lifestyle of that era, making current kitchens work in old and period homes. No space has changed more, in design and how we use it than the kitchen. The average family, in the UK, spend around £10,000 to £15,000 modernising and renovating them, at this cost, it is a room that you can’t afford to get wrong.

Open Plan Living

The modern open plan living or kitchen dinner space originated from the humble serving hatch. Over time, this has got bigger from a hatch to the small door opening to walls disappearing completely. Removing the walls entirely brings the two spaces together into one functional room. By removing the humble serving hatch walls entirely kitchens have grown in size and given way to one of the greatest design features of the modern day kitchen, the island unit. The island unit has now become the central hub for any modern kitchen, used as a prepping area, creating a break between the kitchen and other space and a vantage point to enjoy both space and the views through glazed openings.

There are many benefits of open plan living that can be greatly beneficial to your home. It can improve the overall appearance of kitchen, living space, increases the potential for natural daylight and supports communal living in bringing the family together.
