The open floor plan is becoming more than just a buzz word in the Kitchen and Bath Design Industry, it is a reflection of the way we live in our homes on a daily basis. Open spaces allow for greater connection of family in a casual setting. Making the decision to create a change like this in your own home will not only add to your own personal enjoyment, but also increase the value of your home. Realtors comment on the popular appeal to potential buyers. The open space also creates an opportunity to highlight the island as a focal point, and creates more space for clever storage alternatives such as built in pantries and furniture style hutches. When thinking about the connection of the kitchen to the rest of the home, using consistent elements that have a connection to the rest of the home will create a cohesive look.
Taking all of these points into consideration, making the change to an open floor plan is an option that we highly recommend! Follow this link for more detail on An Honest Look at the Open Floor Plan.
