From a kitchen to a place to spend time to together
The kitchen has been permanently transformed from a humdrum area into an open living space for everyone to see and use. However, open living spaces require careful kitchen planning, since kitchens are basically for preparing and storing food. A kitchen still needs to be both practical and ergonomic, and to have everything you would expect. You need worktops, workspace and enough space for tableware, kitchen utensils and food storage. Then there’s still the kitchen waste, the smell of cooking, the noise from kitchen appliances, and the chinking and clattering of tableware to be considered when choosing the materials.
