Open Kitchen Space with Luxury and Style

by author on February 11, 2013

A kitchen is not just a room in your home. In fact, it is often referred to as the heart of the home. The act of cooking and eating is very emotionally charged for many of us, and our kitchens are often considered to be the most important part of our homes. Creating open kitchen space is important. Our kitchens are where we gather for meals with family, to cook with and for the people we love, to nourish our bodies and our minds. Often the kitchen table is where important conversations are held regarding decisions about futures, life lessons, and the love we share with our family.

We want our kitchens to be warm and inviting, a place to relax and unwind, and place to come together and appreciate each other with a good meal. Open kitchen space will help to facilitate this type of emotional intimacy that we need from our kitchen. A kitchen that is cramped and cluttered makes us feel crowded and irritable. It is hard to move around, to talk and enjoy long evenings together if there is too much going on in the room.

Creating an open kitchen space tells your family and guests that this is a place to relax, to enjoy each other and to seek solace from the world. Opening up your space creates an atmosphere where your family will want to spend time together. Creating an open space is not as hard as it might seem, even in small areas you can achieve a more open kitchen space by eliminating clutter, clearing counter-tops and using your wall space wisely.

Use mirrors to help give the room a bigger feel and go with simplistic decor that will make your kitchen feel open and inviting. If you are blessed with a large kitchen and lots of space, don’t fall into the “too much space” trap. You don’t have to fill every space. Using simple, natural decor that flatters your space will create an environment that is guaranteed to enhance your entire home.

The color you picked for a room might be perfect, yet poor lightening will not bring out the true effects of that shade. One of the best tips for home decorating offered is to pick the correct lighting because it makes a world of a difference, yet is frequently overlooked by those decorating a room for the first time.
