Open Kitchen

The kitchen is where everyone gathers when you have company over. Of course, that’s where the snacks are!

Kitchens are becoming more open these days rather than tucked in a corner to be functional and that’s it.

Check out this kitchen’s layout:

Here’s what I love about it:

  • The stove faces the great room. Now that there are pop up vents, you no longer have to face a wall while cooking
  • The built-in table allows people to sit with you while you cook, or gives an informal area to eat breakfast without needing a separate room
  • Easy access to the rear porch for BBQ’ing
  • The pantry creates a visual buffer from the kitchen to the formal dining room; go ahead and leave the cooking tornado until after everyone is gone without having to stare at while holding conversation!
