Open Kitchen Floor Elements
The design elements are easy to adapt to your desire and imagination.
Kitchen island: In my opinion, by having a kitchen island you may convert your dining area into a breakfast bar or you can keep the dining area and add an extra breakfast bar. Using the kitchen island as a home office is another good idea.
Matching kitchen flooring or whole area flooring: If you use one color flooring it would show your home more spacious. Remember your style kitchen will match with the hardwood flooring or ceramic flooring.
Kitchen pendants or kitchen chandelier: Lighting is the best solution to give a fresh look to your open kitchen
Two-tone kitchen cabinets or two-tone countertops: If you would like to make an addition like a kitchen island, you can go for matching colors of your cabinets either the same tones or contrast. Instead of whole kitchen remodeling, you will save money for the other elements. The same happens for the countertops. Smart budgeting counts.
Floor to ceiling color code: If you have an already high ceiling you can add some coffered ceiling and cover inside the ceiling with the same material as the floor. This color-coding is a good trick to feel customized and to feel homey as well and it always works. Now time to see my picks for you, hope you like the kitchen with large in your new project.
Open Concept Kitchen Layouts
No matter what if we have a small or big house, open concept kitchens have many advantages.
Dynamic living space: The kitchen area and living room interact well and your dining and living are being easier.
Go with the flow: This is a great idea to play with colors and make them flow in your open kitchen, dining area, and living space.
Natural light: If you have a window in your kitchen, this natural light goes through the dining area first and then the living space. If your windows are near the living room, still have the same rule for the whole area.
Feeling and sensing: Since we all need a big change in our restricted life, this is the most important thing in kitchen remodeling. Open kitchen and living room transfer the spacious, fresh, and relaxing feeling into your spirit.
