Fusion of dream kitchen and living space

Clear the stage for the open-concept kitchen

The latest trend is for a flowing architecture in which living, cooking and enjoying blend into one another. The open-concept kitchen is inviting for all who enjoy a communicative sense of togetherness when preparing delicious food. Beautiful materials, high-quality kitchen products and design create a harmonious link between the dining and living spaces while upgrading the home at the same time.

Set individual design accents in the open-concept kitchen

The kitchen is becoming the center of the home and is opening up at the same time. To match the cooking trend, the kitchen is no longer isolated and closed off, but rather an inviting place for the whole family and their guests. The kitchen is thus transformed into an open area where you can easily interact with family and friends, with conversations continuing. Cook while watching the TV show that’s on by the sofa? Perhaps you, too, dream of how convenient it would be if there were only a few steps between kitchen, dining area and cozy seating.

Coordinated materials create a harmonious ensemble

The open-concept kitchen fits particularly harmoniously into a home setting if there are coordinated materials in place to visually link the different areas. The trend is toward wood and natural materials, extending from kitchen furnishings and work surfaces to flooring and into the living space. Laminate floors and trendy tiles with a wood look also create a visual bridge. Many times, selected details such as carpets can create smooth transitions. Across-the-board color schemes and charming lighting boost the creative concert. Designer lighting that emits a “comfortable” light over the dining table or breakfast nook can blur the boundaries between areas. Cozy seating can complement the counters where guests are seated. In this inviting setting of cooking and living space, a prominent faucet for the sink becomes an eye-catcher. The valuable kitchen helper creates an individual design accent.

Kitchen workstation with maximum flexibility

The cooking island as a plus: It is easily accessible from all sides and is communicative, too, thanks to seating on one side.
