The island that changes your open space

Design

Ideas capitalize the furniture in the kitchen

Some time ago, most houses were structured in the following way: the entrance had a long corridor, while the kitchen and living room were divided into different rooms. Today, the morphology of houses has changed and in many cases these areas have merged into large open environments.

A kitchen that opens onto a living room allows you to arrange your space in different layouts

The islands and peninsulas can easily be transformed into an operational element for dual-use.

On the one side what is useful for work...

A kitchen that opens onto a living room allows you to arrange your space in different layouts, which you can organize to your liking and in accordance to your needs.
The islands and peninsulas can easily be transformed into an operational element for dual-use.
The kitchen side can be presented as a working channel equipped with everything you want to have at hand: stove, sink, worktop or electrical appliances.

…on the other side what you want

The side facing the living room can be used for other functions: such as a snack bar/counter where you can entertain your family and guests before and after meals.
Otherwise, you can choose models that are provided with open shelves (facing the living room), this is where you can place books and magazines to read after your culinary efforts.
Alternatively, you can also dedicate this area to your children’s toys so that they can keep you company while you cook.

The final touch: the right style

With regard to the style of these 'mixed' environments it is very important that while they are coordinated they are not the same.
The living room furniture should call to mind the colours and materials of the kitchen, but without creating a heavy impact.
The right idea? Choosing a contrasting colour or completing the environment with accessories and complements enables the separation of styles in a discreet manner.
