Although open concept kitchens have made their main mark on design trends in the last decade, many families find themselves between decisions regarding open kitchens versus closed kitchens in their new homes. While an open concept kitchen design provides plenty of space for a family to gather and entertain in a single room, a closed kitchen can offer privacy in between different spaces. If you are planning for your family in your new kitchen’s design, then consider the best of both kitchen concepts as you decide. Read on to learn more!
Open Kitchens Have More Space
Plenty of homeowners prefer an open kitchen design due to the amount of space they gain by creating a single space out of the kitchen and living room. In conjoining these rooms, families with kids or multiple generations of families in the house can enjoy the visibility and accessibility in the open space. An open kitchen that will maximize the living space also will provide a central space for families to entertain, as their guests can all gather in a larger, single space of the two combined spaces.
Closed Kitchens Provide Privacy and Reduced Sound
Sectioning off spaces with a closed kitchen has its central role in creating ideal space for dining, cooking, and entertaining in designated areas. With this, a closed-off kitchen provides you a bit of privacy and reduced sound that you might otherwise not have with open concept living areas. In this design, families who are less concerned with entertaining may enjoy the sectioned spaces, including separated rooms for watching television, cooking, and enjoying meals as a group.
