Many homeowners are upgrading to an open floor plan throughout their homes. This entails removing any unnecessary interior walls in order to open up the space. Transforming compartmentalized rooms into open, connected spaces is a great way to make your home feel more inviting as well as more modern. Since the kitchen is such a high-traffic area, this room can especially benefit from the open concept design. Here are a few of the benefits you can experience when you choose an open concept kitchen.
Open spaces are great for entertaining. Even if you’re just entertaining your family, you’ll love the easy convenience of an open concept kitchen. The removal of the walls that separate the kitchen from the rest of the home mean that you can be in the kitchen preparing a meal while your kids are doing homework in the dining room or watching television in the living room, and you will all be able to see each other, communicate, and stay connected. If you’re hosting a party, the extra space makes it easy for overflow to run into other rooms instead of clogging up the kitchen.
Relaxing Natural Light
We all love natural light and want as much of it to reach the insides of our homes as possible. A home filled with natural light feels more relaxing and airy. While installing larger windows and sliding glass doors is a great way to do this, you can also help fill your home with natural light by rearranging the interior of your home! Removing unnecessary interior walls creates less of a barrier for natural light. This means that natural light will be able to reach deeper into the home. So, if you have a gorgeous bay window in your kitchen, the natural light that enters from that window won’t stop at the kitchen!
Create More Space
While removing interior walls does free up more space, the visual impression of added space is tenfold. Removing walls and connecting rooms together essentially lends the space of all the rooms to each other. Having one large, open area that provides uninterrupted lines of sight creates the impression that your home is much larger than it actually is!
